Some of you may or may not be aware that I am still I "newbie" when it comes to blogging. I have only been doing this since late August. I have always read a bunch of wonderful blogs that were written by some very super creative people, but I never thought about starting my own until this past summer. Let me just say one thing.....I love it!! If I have any regret it's that I wish I had started this sooner. I have learned that there are a lot of sweet, inspiring & friendly people out there in "blog land"! I have met quite a few of you that I'm sure if we lived close by each other we would be dumpster diving & flea marketing together!
You guys have no idea how much you have helped me limp through a very difficult year......losing our business and home is the sum of it, but I don't want to dwell on the negatives........you guys have helped me "make lemonade out of lemons". Instead of focusing on the "remember whens" you guys have helped me see the possibilities of the "what ifs". From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Looking forward to the next year I have many projects that I'm going to tackle. I have a kitchen that needs to be redone so I will probably make that my winter project. A master bath & bedroom that badly need a makeover, chair rail that needs to be put up in my living room & a downstairs bath that could also use a facelift. Obviously I have a lot of work ahead of me but I will share my successes & failures with you guys :). Besides planning on having a booth at my local monthly flea market (Kane County Flea) with my partner in crime - Diane at sweetgirlcrafting. I'm also hoping on finding a store that will let me place some of my larger items. Okay, enough with the rambling on......
Here are some of my favorite projects from the last 5 months that I would like to share with you guys......
