Music Shelf


This is an old shelf I had lying around and no longer needed.  My sister in law & I are working on redecorating her room.  It will be a musical themed room.  I can’t wait to share the finished room.  This was the first step.  She painted a cream base coat then we ripped up musical paper and Mod Podged it on their.  She did an awesome job and it looks so beautiful in her room.

This Weeks Menu - Week 1

Remember this Kitchen Chalkboard?  Recently, I've been trying to put it to better use by writing up my full weeks dinner menu vs. a daily one.  Most Mondays I sit down and create my menu for the week.  My family loves it.  This also helps me.  Something about having it up and written down makes me feel more organized.  Even if you don't follow it completely, it's nice to have a plan.

So, I've decided that I wanted to start sharing this with you every Monday.  By doing this I'm hoping that my most Mondays turns into every Monday.  This helps keep me more accountable.

Also for my kids, school starts tomorrow.  They bring lunch from home.  I will be putting together a lunch menu for them as well.

What do you pack for school lunches?

I <3 Baseball

I love baseball applique and embroidery design

I just ordered this from can’t wait to get it.  It’s just adorable.  My life has been overwhelmed with baseball lately and I LOVE it.  It’s almost end of the season BBQ for the JR League and guess who gets to make the cake?!  Me!  I can’t wait to share it with you.  The hubby says to make a giant bat and ball.  I want something similar to this one:  But not to similar.  We’ll see.  Any ideas?

Shabby Salvage


I have always had an infatuation for vintage furniture or anything vintage for that matter.  I have recently been working on quite a few projects and wanted to share one that I finished a while back.  This bookshelf was once a worn brown.  Sorry I don’t have a before picture.  It currently sits in my room.  It was a yard sale find.  Can’t wait to share more.

Pardon my dust!

2012-05-03 06.36.41-1

Not the prettiest picture but wanted to share it with you.  If you ask me, that looks like a clear sign of production.  I am currently getting ready for a show this weekend and have been so busy.  This little mess is only part of it.  I started feeling some creativity blockage and decided to clean up.  Doing a quick clean up can sometimes help get my creative juices flowing.  How about you?  What helps you get your creative juices going?
