I know I've been talking about my craft show prep a little lately but now I think it's time to start showing a few of the items that I will be featuring at the sale!

When crafting doesn't go as planned...

I hope that all of you had an amazing week because apparently I have been so wrapped up in this dang craft show preparation that I totally lost track of time and haven't posted in a while! Ooops!

Signs, Signs, Everywhere a sign...{how to diy wooden signs}

This week has been crazy busy! Anyone else have that goin' on to? We've had a nasty cold bug running around our house between the kids and let's just say, I'm only alive right now because of my coffee :(

As if that's not a handful in itself, my sister in law and I have decided spur of the moment to join in a local craft show in the beginning of December. We did one a few years back and had

My sweet neighbor Michelle brought over a ton of Roma tomatoes the other day and I promised my Facebook fans that I would

A while back I scored this not so fancy French Provincial lingerie chest off of Craigslist.  I had put an add up that I was looking for wooden furniture to refinish and a women in my very

Welcome Fall!!

Yesterday I had a very special date with my sweet middle daughter, Carmin.  Her and I don't get a ton of time to spend with just the two of us so I couldn't wait to hang with her.  She has a heart of gold! 

We headed a few miles down the road to one of my favorite
