Big Project

See the desk on the left? It is a great piece of office furniture but why not paint it the color I want it if it is going in my craft room?  It took me forever but I finally finished painting it and here it is in all it's glory....

I can honestly say it turned out really well. My husband was against it from the beginning but he now agrees that it looks great. Thanks to Kristy, Hailey and Becca for pitching in! I love that I took the extra time to router out the wood panels on the cupboard doors and have glass put in. It gives it that final touch! I am obviously horrible at taking a "before" picture. The first picture was taken in Indiana when we were trying to sell our home. When I start a project I get so excited I forget to take a picture and remember half way through what an idiot I am. Oh well, you get the idea. 
Now to decorate the shelves and organize my craft stuff. 
More updates to come on my craft room!

It's Summer

Ok, it's Spring but my four-year old doesn't know the difference.
 I love watching each of my kids. Each one so unique and different. Kate loves to cook and plant seeds, while Hailey loves to draw and create. Kate loves to pick out her own wardrobe while Hailey could care less what she wears (except for jeans, she thinks they are scratchy).
In true Kate fashion she stepped outside and noticed how warm it was and yelled, "It's summer, I need my summer dress and my summer hat!" 
She ran upstairs and came down wearing a very summer-like dress. She then proceeded to run down to the basement and came up with my straw hat. I was amazed with her sense of style, let alone where she found that hat in our unfinished basement (it is a train wreck down there).
There are not words to describe how much I loved just watching her blow bubbles and get excited to plant flowers. This little girl really knows how to enjoy life to the fullest. 
I love you Kate.
