After seeing all the scraprooms on the Work in Progress blog I loved this basket when Trish showed her room and today while running through Target (one of what seems my daily stops!) I spotted this baby and it came home with me.
Not too shabby for 14.99. Now I'm just not sure if I'm going to keep the color or spray paint it another color. If I change the color I'll be sure to post.
Christmas and Valentines could be celebrated together? Well for a bunch of girlfriends that's just what we did.
Every year we get together at Christmas and do a Treasured Friends girlfriend Christmas exchange. It was because of Brenda's store Treasured Friends that we all met.
One year we decided to move it to January so we could enjoy the time together instead of rushing with all the other holiday plans. It has become our tradition and something to look forward to in January.
Then every year in February Kim does a girlfriend Valentine party. Since Brenda was coming in from Michigan we decided to combine them both to one party. Thank goodness for girlfriends - What a fun night we all had!
You know when I read Jill's blog today it reminded me of how we all can get overwhelmed with "life" sometimes and on the same day I read it I found myself feeling that same way.
The last few days have included a lot of running and getting things done but yet I felt like I was doing a ton of something but accomplishing nothing. I was sharing this same feeling today with Joel at work.
I left the house this morning at 8:30am with dishes still in the sink, piles of laundry to be done, the counters covered with "stuff" that needs my time and attention and my dinning room covered with all the items from my family room that I'm getting ready to remodel and not even a thought of what's for dinner tonight!
Why do I dwell on the "list" of things I didn't get done or the house not being in order as if it takes from who I am. I need to work on that one??
This afternoon in between errands I had 1 hour to accomplish as much as I could and I knew I needed to get this house in order to feel more in order. I did pretty good in that hour with laundry and cleaning and felt a little better than I had earlier today, but I know I need to find a new way to work in all the things I need to do and all the things I want to do. You know I think tips from the flylady sure have made a difference in budgeting the time that you do have in a day.
Today's page from my Simple Abundance book started with this sentence. The key to loving how you live is in knowing what it is you truly love.
Little Tikes catalog - Just found this going through some memorabilia downstairs. Chelsea's was called twice for photo shoots when she was 15 months old. Here is the one that made the catalog and was in for years!
