I should be...but I am not in the mood! :-)

Hey gals!

Well, I SHOULD be doing homework! :/ Ugh Doesn't a girl get a break every once in a while LOL

I had all day at home...BY MY SELF! and I HAVE LOVED IT!

I really should have much more productive stuff, like housework, organizing, and HOMEWORK, but really I just talked on the phone, played on this computer and did a little housework....and made things and touching things up around here up a bit! C-:

I had this crazy idea for a ladder I purchased at a Flea market about 7 years ago, for a $1.50. I have had it leaned against a tree in our front yard ever since. But today...I BROUGHT IT IN MY HOUSE! I know, I know! Your has misfired in this brain of mine. But give me a minute and I will explain.

Soooooo....I brought it up on the porch, washed it down good, and sprayed a clear coat on it, to seal it. Brought it in and there you have it!

A really cute magazine holder, picture hanging and best of all it was FREE! Yay me! (Sorry, we have remolded the master bathroom, have not finished the master ignore the wall for ow. )

Have a terrific weekend, I get to go on a date night with Hubby tonight...going to see True Grit and dinner! woot! Its a good day!

I am here! & I even made some Valentine goodies!

Hey everyone! Long time since I have been here! :( Makes me sad to not get to post much, but taking 17 hours of classes this semester I am just glad I get to sleep sometimes! Ha!

I have however been making a few things, so I thought I would share some special Valentine's I created for some of my bunch!

First off, at Everyday Cricut last week the guest designer, Carrie, had a super cute little gift I decided my Mother-In-Law, niece and grad-daughter all needed for V-day! I had some shrinky dink material on hand so I simply followed her directions and made them these super cute "I love You" pins (That's I love you in sign language!)

I also participated in my friend Michelle's First Valentine Gift Exchange. It was great fun. I sent a box of Valentine goodies to Cali, including a little handmade picture holder with LOVE on the front and a quick Valentines card. Here is a quick view of the goodies I sent my girl Hope she loved them!
Next up is a little banner I made for our house. It was quick and easy, and I have it hanging on our Antique desk in the living room. Its a fun little touch!

I have also been working on birthday stuff, so here is a bag I did for my Mother in laws bday and a little dry erase board I made for one of my niece's.
 Fun stuff and easy, quick and not so costly!

Wow, I have been doing something besides homework :) Hope this week is a blessing for each of you and that the weather is nicer than it has been for all of you and us! :-) Now I am off to do some more homework. :/ hehe It will all be worth it though!
