taking a break...perhaps a long one.

i've been sick a lot lately and sadly it's not looking like i'll be better anytime soon. the doc suggested reducing my stress. however that's suppose to happen? so between beinig a mother, putting our house up for sale, finishing the semester with 14 credits, fullfilling church callings and still finding time to spend with my family i've decided to let the creative side of me take a break. so no more sewing all the ideas that linger in my mind, no more recipe searching or food network watching, no more savy grocery shopping, no more room redecorating (all though i still haven't showed you the last three i've done and the one i have to finish....maybe!) and no more thrift store shopping. and you may be asking how can you reduce stress by taking out everything fun? well, for now anyway, every spare moment is spent resting. {sleeping} and so far my body is liking that better than anything i could ever bake. so, months from now when i decide to be domestic again....i'll let you know! untill then, may God bless you and your crafts!

quick fix!

i've been looking for some cute dark wicker chairs for our back porch. the camping chairs are just a sore eye! well everything i see that i like has a $49.99 tag {or higher} and i just don't want to spend $100.00 on patio chairs {i'm cheap...real cheap!} so when i was at the dollar store yesterday i spotted these.
for only $14.99 i liked the chair. hated the color.
so i changed it with some spray paint!

now i just need some cute lil' outdoor pillows and wa-laa!

need photos?

this photographer is giving away 2 8X10 portraits for free! a $40.00 value! check her out for the details!!

i understand...

i bet you've all lost faith in me. not posting for 15 days is a blogging sin, i'm sure! so sorry. i understand if you have found other more dedicated bloggers to occupy your time. perhaps it was a good move. i've been so busy lately. designing...being a mom...visiting family....holidays but my biggest excuse is the absence of my beloved laptop! it got a new hard drive this week and the geek squad had a hard time. i didn't understand anything they were telling me to do. {why can't they just say..."the blue button"? i do know my colors but i have no idea about computer lingo!} needless to say it was a frustrating few weeks with out my buddy! {the laptop, in case you're confused!}

so my creative domesticness has been put on the back burner. if perhaps you haven't lost faith and you want more...ask me questions. i'd be more than happy to share anything your interested in. grocery shopping on a tight budget? decorating before and after pics? home selling tips? how-to make an apron? crafts i do with my one-year old? recipes? what is everyone in the mood for?

thanks for visiting my blog {as boring as it has been} i will try to make it worth your time in the future!

oh and in case you care {like if you're my mom!} I'm in the paper today!! it's not a flattering picture by any means...but check it out! and be sure to read your Cache Magazine that comes out tomorrow for a feature article on our business!!!!
