Myspace


I finally found a myspace background that I simply love! And for some reason it won't show up... I have always loved shabby chic decor, but with children it's hard to decorate with light colors. My decor style has been a hodge podge all throughout the house...kitchen french country with black, white/cream, brick red, mustard, the master bedroom, living and dining have been tradtional. Now, my bedroom is black, white and pink~slowly moving in that direction. When my kids get a little bigger~this dream will become a reality.

My day...


Today was a wet, miserable day...and with the bad weather, a slight chill set in and had to grab my jacket for the latter part of the afternoon. The morning was filled with my usual volunteering for a local organization. It is very rewarding to be able to help others in need. I, myself and children fall in the same category~but are most fortunate for our life's blessings.

When I got done, I struggled to keep the car on the road for the heavy downpouring rain. After a late lunch, I headed out the door to see if I could find some treasures at the antique mall down the street. I have started a list of the things I need to get back into full swing of my business~just need some $$.

The kiddo's are gone this weekend. My sisters' neighborhood in Mansfield (the Arbors) is having their annual family garage sales...please don't miss it!! There are tons of great designer clothes (all ages) at cheap prices!!! Last year, I got some adorable French Country accents for my kitchen for around 50 cents each!! What a bargain!! I plan on selling my jewelry out there...weather permitting of course~

Easter 2009




This year, our family was separated for Easter. With the growing family and things being so busy, everyone decided to celebrate within their own homes.




The girls went to my mom's and sister's home, (they are getting too old to hunt eggs) the boys and I had an egg hunt in the house. The day was cold, wet and miserable, but thank you Michele for the chicken!! Their other Granny made us a bunny cake...it was delicious!!

Howdy Everyone!!

I've been in a funk for the past month and can't seem to get back into the swing of things. Having all of my stuff in storage has been bad, since I can't create anything!! (anybody want to help me dig thru my boxes?)

The past 2 months without my supplies, I've been daydreaming on the net and spending a lot of time on myspace and facebook~catching up with friends I haven't heard from since high school.

But, the best part is that I am closer to my favorite shopping destination...downtown McKinney!!!!
