Organizing, Shopping, Crafting Oh My!

For those that don't know, I LOVE projects! Any kind of project is enough to get me going in the morning, and keep me moving well past hunger and exhaustion! I love organizing projects, cleaning things out projects, scrapbooking projects, sewing projects, decorating projects, crafty projects, and shopping projects (when I only have a set amount to spend and a list of things to get and trying to find the best way to get the most for the $).

So, here I am a few days after Christmas and I have lots of projects! The first one I tackled was getting my house back to normal after Christmas. Taking down decorations and cleaning and repacking and putting stuff back up which usually looks a bit different cause I got some new items. Then, the shopping project. I got some $ as a gift and also had to take something back and there were some crafty things on my list. So I spent a couple of days (not the whole day) trying to find the best prices and somethimes going to some stores several times! Ok, so I don't care for that part but I like the challenge of trying to find a particular item.

For Christmas the thing I wanted most was a new sewing machine. And thankfully my mom bestowed this much wanted gift on me! I have grand plans of sewing some pillows/covers and then whatever strikes my fancy! I know, really ambitious. I bought some fabric and I have the pillow form and just need to sit down and play with my new machine. I also really want to learn to knit so I have my stuff ready and waiting for me to learn. I also got for Christmas the new Project Life kit and I'm waiting on it to come in so I can get started on that as well. AND, I have a little craft project for Trey's room that I'll share later.

It's a long list of new fun creative projects and I can't wait to get at them. You'll be hearing more about this for a while as this what's going on in my life right now.
Wish me luck!

  1. Hi, I found you over at Gussy's blog. My hubby and I met, started dating and got married within 9 months and have been married for 12 years too! Most people can't believe that, but when you meet the "right" person, you just know! It's nice to meet you!


Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
I will respond to questions in the comments, Thanks!
