Today we got a skiff of snow (well last night and this early morning) and then a little ice to get with
And all the schools are closed....
sure is early in the year to be getting snow or the threat of it here in Portland.....
I have a head cold and 23 degree weather is NOT something I want to play in ....but after we bundle up and head out in the cold, the kids jump right in throwing snow and falling down and slipping around on the deck...
Sawyer thinks the sweeper is NEEDED but it seems to just inhibit his movements.....and his swing is frozen too!
but Daisy sure loves it! At least for a few minutes!
Ashlee and I love to craft... I have finally found something that we both like to do together. Although there is some bickering about how the other is doing things ( I know I am the adult here but we are both strong minded hehe).. it goes pretty well and usually turn out to look like what we wanted them to..
Here are a few :
These little turkeys I saw on another site and had to adjust them a little to fit some of the supplies that I had here at the house.. we had to substitute felt feathers for the real thing.. but they are still cute!
The tree table toppers are still a work in progress, this was just a test one to see if pipe cleaners would work for them to stand up with, they do after a fashion, plus I need a different idea for the tree topper!
Ok so I started working on a few updates in the kids' bathroom yesterday and wow it turned into a lot more than just painting the walls... I decided to paint the vanity and the light fixtures and add new hardware and just try to update a little bit, although there are still a few things that need to be changed like the counters and the faucets but hey it is a start and I think it is starting to look pretty good.
Here are a few pictures... and you will have to forgive me the starting color of the walls was SO ugly I could not stand to get any pictures of it. but the new color is GREAT, I got the idea from ... get this... another blog!! yep, it is wood smoke grey by Glidden. LUV it!!!
Ok the light fixture was brass and I found this great paint that is like the brushed bronze and it even has texture, way COOL! so I did the lights!
The vanity was oak like this other one that you see here and Yes it too has the need to get rid of tile counter!
I added a little white paiting and some new hardware... woolllaah!! looks great! like my child proof handles? hehe
This is a shot of the shower and the new wood smoke grey color on walls and ceiling!!! Luv it!!
These are some kind of crappy shots of my 70's mirror look! the wall of mirror.... auughhh
I found yet another great idea on my list of blogs for framing the mirror so that it looks brand new!! yeah! I am going to try it!
Here is my frame made from floor mouldings, it is being glued together with liquid nails, I am going to do a little antiquing to it and liquid nail it to the wall around the mirror, after shots to follow when finished!
What do you think so far? lots of work.? oh and I will get shots of the new towel rack that Eric is making also!!
A day for a long road trip up the I-5 freeway to a little town called Vader. I have a dear friend that lives there, and I decided that Friday was the day to visit. Packing up the essentials for two kids and my Marykay is always fun. I have to quickly run through the laundry list; did I get the diapers? snacks, and the lip balm,? hehe..
I have to write it down or I will totally forget when some one asks me what I would like or want for christmas!! so here are some of my ideas:
The first and most important gift that I want, directed right at my husband....
A new camera... one that has a zoom lens, I want to get better with my picture taking!!
Some new fashion, comfy, warm boots
Some new running shoes, as I think mine has too many miles on them now...
Now down to the good stuff! I would love a new skirt, nice dark wash jeans, and a comfy warm sweater...
maybe a couple of girlie blouses too!
Now let me think of the little items that are so important yet take up so little room on the list...
I would love to have more updates for my CM software, gifts certificates for digital albums, pedicure gift certificates, storage tubs( I need for craft and Marykay storage)... guess that is all I can think of for now..
oh I almost forgot.......
I want a family trip to hawaii............that would be such a DREAM!!!!!
oh my I think my list could become endless.. better stop for now.. hehe :)
