Let’s Get This Blog Started (Again)

Okay, so I started this blog well over three months ago and I never finished starting it.  It was a half-arse start.  Not because I was being lazy but my ever so busy life interrupted comes first and my home computer goes wacko every now and again.  Gotta get that thing looked at.  Of course I can’t blog from work because well I’m working and like so many at-work-restrictions, my Blogger page is one of them (yet not others, weird!).
So why am I blogging?  Why am I now part of the ever so growing blogging community?  Why read my blog?  Well I decided to jot all my thoughts, opinions (okay, not all of ‘em), random thoughts, aspirations, wishful thinking, ideas or lack thereof and confessions with my friends and family and I guess strangers too.  I am on Twitter but sometimes a gal needs more than 140 characters to say what’s on her mind.  I also have a FaceBook account but I don’t consider FB the place to post long, detailed status updates.  I don’t think my FB community wants to see all that bidness on their smartphones while browsing off and on all day. 
Anywho (you will find that I say anywho quite a bit), I used to be anti-blogging.  Well I would not go that far but the thought of putting your personal life out there along with pictures made me think it was just plain ‘ol dangerous and scary.  “No way!”  “I would never do that.”  
Heck, I wouldn’t even do MySpace or FaceBook for that same reason.  But over the past couple of years I’ve come across lots and lots of blogs that are really interesting and I always look forward to a new post.  And it doesn’t seem to be such a scary bloggy blog world after all.  Although I will ALWAYS be cautious.
I also want to do things around my house, expand and improve my creativity, be a better cook/baker so I look for ideas and tutorials.  My husband and I bought our house almost nine years ago- July 1, 2002 to be exact- and we have done a few improvements; but I’m ashamed to say we could have done so much more by now.  We just didn’t know what to do, how to do it once we discovered whatever it was that we liked, and because we just didn’t know squat we just assumed every home improvement project was going to be $$$$$.  Wrong.  In fact, my husband just completed his own version of California Closets (sorta) in our master closet for a fraction of their price.  Go Honey!  A post (with pictures) on that later.  But here's one little preview.
That's my Honey shyly posing.

So as The Black Eyed Peas would say sing, Let’s Get It Started!

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…
