I have been going non-stop since this past Friday evening starting with a big family dinner to celebrate an uncle's 60th birthday.  We were gone all weekend long.  Saturday it was errands then visited with family for some much overdue family time.  All day Saturday until the late evening/night.  You see my hubby is currently studying for the CPA exam so no one in the fam gets to see him much.  He basically took this past weekend off to visit with as many as he could before hitting the books again and getting slammed at work now that tax season is underway.  Sunday it was church, Cub Scout meeting, grocery shopping and finally baseball practice.

It is Monday night and I just sat down to watch a little tube and unwind before jumping in the shower and going to bed.  But really I have no business sitting down to do that much less take a few minutes to write this post.  I need to finish folding laundry, clean my kitchen counters and stove top.  But I am tired and my feet are killing me.  My joints are hurting too.  No, I ain't old.  I just have a little unspecified connective tissue disease.  Yeah, bummer deal but I am not going to touch on that now.  I just want to get some virtual hugs from the rest of the pooped out mommies out there.  You know just to say, "I feel ya girl!"  Don't get me wrong now.  I love my family and our life.  I am just super duper tired.  Like I've said before, everyday I'm shufflin'.  I think Mama needs massages on a regular basis.  Okay now that I have sat and "relaxed" for a few I'm going to clean a little more and call it a night.  No, the house is not completely tidy and mess free.  I have tomorrow and the day after, right?  In my Scarlet O'Hara voice, "After all tomorrow is another day." :)

You see how Scarlet looks like hammered you-know-what right here?   Yep, that's me.  She's vowing to never be hungry again.  I'm vowing to one day catch up including my DVR.
Buenas noches, blog world.

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) …

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…

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…
