The madness has begun!!!:)

I just wanted to do a quick post this morning before I head out to my new home, the fireworks store. I work for my brother during this time, he runs several fireworks stores here in Ohio. Some of his stores are open year round some just a few weeks before the 4th. The madness has begun, and I wanted to tell my fellow bloggin friends the lack of posts there will be in these next few weeks, as 12-14 hour days of work will consume ALL my time, and still maintain running 2 teenagers to open gyms, and practices for volleyball, and basketball, plus my son is working too, so my schedule is pure crazziness. Should make for some interesting Well I hope to have some interesting stories to share, customers usually make for some interesting stories..:)I will miss the bloggin though, as I miss reading all my favorite blogs, but I hope to catch up for a few minutes late in the evening. Well, off I go. Have a great day my bloggin friends.......

Any HELP for my small drabby checkerboard kitchen:(

I was watching HGTV the other night, and looking at houses,being redone, or getting a free contractor to make over their house, and well I got a lil envious and I realized I really shouldn't feel this way, but I did and we are suppose to be happy with what we have. I know I should be happy with my drabby checkerboard kitchen..well...uggg!!!The checkerboard floor, and tile. I love looking at other peoples homes here in blog world, people really do have beautiful kitchens and beautiful homes. I love seeing transformations of kitchens, so many gorgeous ones at that. Well, I wish I could wave a magic wand and make mine redone!! I probebly am not the only stay at home mom who love to have a redo in her kitchen but I often laugh at some of the redos here on blogs because the beginning of there kitchen before the redo is just as nice, I just wish mine looked like some of the before pictures on some of these ppls blog Well anyways like my hubby said some of these ppls house payments are $700-1500 a month or more, and our house payment is only $429 and will be paid off in a few years, so I can't complain..of course its small, but I bet alot are in debt up to their eyeballs just to have a fancy kitchen, or a house to WOW everyone!! I thought long and hard and realized material things are not gonna go with you when you leave this earth, God does not care about what house you live in, or a kitchen redo, and you know what...I SNAPPED right out of my envious stage....Be happy with what you have, and happy for what others have, and do not be envious of others, so that I will keep in mind when I see all that I would love to have. I thank you so much for stopping by, and follow along. I LOVE to have you. Don't forget to enter my TARGET gift card and swiffer giveaway. Now, to a few pictures of my kitchen:)I doubt you will be envious at ALL!!

My made over chair:)

I recently was given a chair by a relative, and I LOVE it I seen the potential, I fell in love with the legs of the chair. I had never seen anything like the legs on this chair. Well it was sanded down and 2 coats of black paint( which I got from the free quart giveaway through the Glidden paint giveaway) were applied. I found this beautiful material at Jo Ann fabrics for 5.99 a yard and only needed 3/4 a yard to cover the ugly brown vinyl cover that was on it. I also just bought some plain white muslin to put down first on the seat cushion before placing the material on. Total cost of materil was around 5.00 the muslin was really cheap:)I used the white muslin so that you will not see anything coming through just by placing the printed material on I used the white first. I LOVE how it turned out:) I placed my new pillow cover I won from BEI FIORA facebook fan giveaway on my chair. It is done, and I LOVE it:)Here are the picture. Thanks for stopping by, hope you will follow along, and send a friend my way. DON'T FORGET TO SIGN UP FOR MY GIVEAWAY ON MY SIDE BAR CLICK ON THE TARGET LOGO:)

My first attempt at making posie pillow cases:)

Ok, Ok, they are almost complete I have not added the buttons yet, I am not sure if that is what I want to do, still on the fence. You may remember me talkin about these pillow cases in past post, that I was almost done, they were taking a lot longer than I ever thought, it was one of my first attempts to try something sewing wise on my own. NOTE its hard to see some of the posies because Like on the pink case You can see the white posies but not the pink ones they are on there too, but NOTE to self don't use left over material in same color as pillow cover for posies:( I did same with cream colored ones the pink posies show up well but the other posies are left over of same material as what the pillowcases were made of. O' Well they are something I am very proud of, it has taken forever, and I was about to give up, and then Roys grandma help me some to the posies were taking me forever, because I have never made before:) The pinning on the posies I finallly got done, and with the help of grandma could properly place them and stitch on. There are flaws in them, my sewing is not the best, and using a sewing machine to make the covers was a funny sight, as the last time I used a sewing machine was 7th grade Home Ec class:) Well, here they are finished, just need to decide if I want to add buttons, which I think I am gonna try to find some pearlized looking buttons. Well thanks for stopping by, DON'T FORGET TO SIGN UP FOR MY GIVEAWAY. A TARGET GIFT CARD, AND SWIFFER SWEEPER STATER KIT. LOOK FOR THE POST OR CLICK ON MY SIDE BAR IT WILL TAKE YOU STRAIGHT TO MY POST TO SIGN UP:)Have a great day my blogging friends:)

Something grandma made:)

I shared last week about the garden angel that my husbands grandmother made me, well she is 80 years old, and amazes me at the things she makes. I wanted to share with you the seat cushions she made for me, all hand crochet, and she is still a making even at her age. No offence grandma Marion:) The cushions are reversable, and twon different colors, they are a lil small for my chairs but I LOVE them, and there wasn't NO WAY I was gonna say they were to small. They fit almost to the size. Her hands do bother her so she doesn't do as much as she use too:( I just wanted to share the seat cushions with you. I have some bears she made from my husbands army uniforn, and the underpart of my wedding dress(so it didn't ruin my wedding dress) She made from the uniform he wore on our wedding day and the under silk of my wedding dress, they are the cutest bears:)all made from our wedding day attire. We have been married 17 years next week June 11th. She has also made a large raggedy ann doll, several other items, I would like to do post on all the items she has made through the weeks here on my blog. I know you will love seeing them:)As always thanks for stopping by and be sure to send a friend:)
