Merry Christmas to All

Here is our Christmas card for this year.

I hope that you are all happy and healthy this Christmas season. It has been a trying year for us, but through it all God never fails. We look forward to exciting changes ahead for our family in 2011 that I will reveal in the weeks to come.

Christmas Decorating

Yesterday I went to help my mother decorate her condo for Christmas. Theybought this condo last year so they could go south for winters. Their primary house is in Canada and the winter condo in South Carolina.Since I am only 2 hours away in Atlanta I went to to be the good daughter and help her out. This is what I came up with for the living room. I think it turned out great!

Here are some close ups.

I'm a little jealous because I haven't finished my own decorating yet. Hopefully I'll get it done tomorrow because I want to join The Nester's party on Monday.

Never Enough Time

My time has been occupied by this for the last 10 weeks.

I am trying to get in to nursing school, so for the past 3 quarters I have been taking all the prerequesites. I am finally finished. I don't know how I did it, but I managed to pull off a 4.0 GPA. I am very ready for some time off, so I will be taking a break for the next quarter. Yeah! I will now have more time for blogging, decorating and sewing. Stay tuned for more posts.

A Moment of Silence Please!

Please take a moment to remember the fallen that gave their lives fighting for our country.

I have returned!

It has been such a long time since I have blogged. I am still enjoying reading my favorite blogs, but I've been busy like everyone else and just got out of the habit. I went back to school and am working on getting all the prerequisites to go to nursing school. I am still sewing and have started making wreaths and floral arrangements. I made this for my mom for her birthday.

Here's to coming back to the land of blogging. I have missed it!

Hand Painted Knobs

I bought and put together this dresser from IKEA for my little boys room.

I wanted to personalize it a little and remembered these hand painted knobs called sknobs I had seen on Etsy. I searched and searched and couldn't find them again, so I seached the web and found them at Studio M Designs. They were perfect for this dresser
I looked at the price and couldn't justify the $60. So off to Hobby Lobby to buy some unfinished large knobs. These could also be used as feet for an ottoman. I spent under $10 and used some leftover paint. Here is my interpretation. Yes I am only showing half the dresser because my son put a bunch of stuff on the top and I was too lazy to clean it all up. Here are all six knobs.
I think they turned out pretty good. These are cell phone pics so they are poor quality. I am linking to Kimba's DIY Day. Check it out and see lots of great DIY ideas.

Hudson is an 11 year old boy who LOVES dogs. When I saw this fabric I immediately knew it would be great in his new room.

Happy Valentine's Day

Do something nice for your sweetie today.
I wish I was on a beach somewhere. The ice and snow in Atlanta this weekend was the most I have seen in the 10 years I've lived here. I'm looking forward to spring.

Have a great day!!

Master Bedroom Redo

Well I have decided to try to keep up with this blog again. I think I need a project to talk about and keep me busy. Today I was out and about looking for fabric for a client (elementary school offices) I drove by a small antique store and thought I would stop in. I had been in one other time years ago. I totally scored this chair and it's match for $30 each.

I convinced the hubster that these would make a great Valentines gift for me. They will look lovely when I recover them. I had been looking for a cane chair ever since I saw one out there in blogland.
Now that I have a matching pair I plan on redecorating the master bedroom. You can see the before of the master here. I brought all of the decor with me from our old house and I am ready for a change. Of course I am also trying to redo 2 of my son's rooms also. Oh why can't I just focus on one room at a time. I can't wait to get busy.
