Silent auction items

My niece is a member of her high school orchestra. One of their fundraisers is a silent auction. My sister and I have managed to be in charge of it for the last two years and this year I had some fun coming up with some creative ideas for auction items.

O.k. I think I need an intervention!!!! I have started crafting Christmas projects and I just can't stop. I am having way too much Christmas fun for July! I have been working on a few different thing, but am just sharing one today. I am making... ORNAMENTS. I know gee how original, but I just love how they are turning out. There will be many more projects between now and Dec. 25th, but check out these snowflakes for now. :)

I used my cricut to cut some chipboard. When it's cold outside is one of the coolest cartridges. It has all sorts of awesome snowflakes. I cut four of my favorites, the nativity, Santa around the world, candy, and a gingerbread. Then I painted them and applied Martha Stewart glitter before the paint dried, and here is what you get. :)

`A new room for Holden

Okay I know I am a bad mom. I started working on Holden's room about a year ago. We had a great plan. I just wasn't too sure how to execute it. hmmm. So his room remained unfinished for quite a while. Well fast forward a few months. I got my cricut and yet I still wasn't sure what to do with his room. Through some research, I found sure cuts a lot software to go along with my cricut. Now I could cut anything with my cricut if I could turn it into a scal file. So I made a few fun football helmets for his wall, and did a great makeover on his celling fan. I just love this software!!!!

I have also decided to include scripture in each of the rooms of my house so here is Holden's verse.

6 weddings and a funeral

I am amazed at how much is going on over the next few weeks. I have jokingly started calling next months 6 weddings and a funeral, but that really doesn't begin to describe it. I have 4 wedding gifts, 2 graduation gifts, 3 birthdays (my oldest boys and mine), our anniversary, father's day, and a baby shower to get gifts for. So needless to say I am going to be a very busy girl over the next few weeks getting everything together. It should be fun and I will post pics so you can see what I am up to. :)

It all started with a comforter

Last monday I bought a new comforter and that is when all the trouble began. I started thinking of all the great new ideas I could use to decorate. It was fun coming up with new ways to redo things. First I had my husband build a headboard. It was a simple design, but I love the way it turned out. Then I decided to repaint the cedar chest that lives at the end of my bed. Then we decided the walls needed to be painted a new color. So several days and lots of hours worth of work later I have a mostly finished room, and I love love love it!!!!!

Row Row Row your camper

Camping in the middle of April in Texas seemed safe enough. Little did we know that there would be rain. Not just rain I am talking epic rain. We spent a lot of time stuck in the camper wishing we could go outside. We eventually all moved out to the picnic table under the awning. I think I found the definition of bored. I started to take picture of the rain hitting the ground. The results were actually pretty cool though.

Since I grew up in the desert I know better than to complain too much about rain. So I guess I will say thank you Lord for the beautiful April Showers. :)
