Our front Porch

So I said I would be back weekly and I am seriously trying to keep up with the blog, the 2 houses, my Dad, my husband and of course Roscoe (our Golden). But I am in no shape or form complaining. I am blessed and I mean more than blessed to have everything I have. I am grateful daily to God for everything He has given us and continues to give us. Especially, health.

We have had lots and lots of rain this week. Actually it had been raining since Sunday non stop. Finally today has been a beautiful sunny day In Vero Beach, FL. But they are predicting more rain for the weekend. Starting tomorrow. ARGHHH. Although we do need the rain.

With that being said, I will now show you pictures of our front porch.

I don't know if you could really see the turtle under the fern. It is our new member of the family. LOL. His name is William but we call him Willie.
Long story short, the girls and I had gone shopping to Kirklands, saw Wille and instantly fell in love, but we all said that if we showed up with him at home, our husbands would kill us. Just a figure of speech. But a few days later my husband and I went back to Kirklands (about 45 minutes away) and as soon as he saw him, he said we are taking him home. I could not believe it. I was cracking up and immediately texted 2 of the girls. They could not believe it. Too funny. So we now have Willie, whom greets everyone as soon as they walk up to the front door.
Hope you guys like him.

Thank you for stoping by my blog and hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day.
Until next time.

Happy Monday

Well hello everyone again. I said I would be back weekly and I will do everything possible to do just that.

This weekend was actually lots of fun. My husband and I went to the Vero home for the weekend. we celebrated for the first time Cinco de Mayo. I was the designated cook and if anyone knows me, they know I do not cook. I'm actually allergic to the kitchen. LOL. Just a figure of speech. I made fajitas, with skirt steak and chicken and I also made turkey ground meat. I cooked peppers (green, yellow, red and orange), they looked so pretty. I also had, sour cream, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and taco sauce (mild) of course. There were drinks, beer, soda, frozen drinks and water. I had dip of 3 different flavors and tortilla chips. One of the neighbors made turds. Thats part of the name. I can't remember the name to what he made. So delicious. It was a sausage with cream cheese, jalapeƱo and wrapped in bacon. Delicious.

I made the mistake of not taking pictures of the food nor the table setting. Bummer, but I will tell you that it came out great.

I will leave you with my scrapbooking room when I only had put some of the furniture in it. I did finish it this weekend between Friday night, Saturday morning and part of Sunday.

Here is the before and hopefully this weekend I will take pics of it to reveal the entire room finished.

This is the desk area. In this photo you only see part of the things that go on the desk. I will be back with the room tour hopefully soon. 

This is the front view of the desk.  

Here are 3 of the shelves. Not everything was even on them. 

I hope you all enjoyed my scrapbook so far. I will be back with the full reveal. Promise.

IT'S been a long long time

Good morning everyone. I know its been a long time, actually long years since I have blogged. But believe it or not youtube has taken me from the blogging world.
I am glad to be back and hope I can keep up with blogging this time and don't neglect it again.

So much has happened and I am so thankful and grateful for the life I have been living. God is the one that has made all this possible.

We have purchased a new home in Vero Beach, Florida and we love it there. Have made some amazing friends and great neighbors.

For now I will love you with a picture of the new home before and after.



The home was a pale yellow with a country blue colored door, which I loved because my favorite color is yellow. But we thought the house needed a new updo. So we went with a grey/green color and a black door. I love black doors.

We did keep our Miami home because my dad lives with us since the passing of my mom 5 years ago, plus my husbands job is in Miami. We, well my husband travels back and forth from Miami to Vero weekly because I do spend most of my time in Vero. I do come back and forth though at times to see my dad, clean the house and spend more quality time with the Hubs.

I promise, well I am going to do my best to post atleast once a week. I will post from the delivering of the new furniture to the progress of the things we have done to it. Also will post my decorations for the holidays that have past, like Halloween, Christmas, Valentines and Easter. And of course my craft room. Which has been a long journey to pack all the furniture and crafting supplies.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and hope to hear from you all soon.

Bottle Caps and Book Marks

So ever since the Holidays I have been crafting away. I know I have not shared but here are a few things I have worked on. 

Here are some bottle caps I altered. So much fun to make these and super easy. The difficult part is adding the beads you want, not that its difficult, just difficult to decide which ones. 

Book marks. I watched a video and saw some of Pinterest. I added it to my to do list immediately. Thought what a cute idea to give to friends for their Bibles. Most of us have kindles or a gadget to download books, so we don't own books. Perfect gift for even mother's day. 

I know I made alot and these are not all of them. I have more that I have made to send to my youngest daughter to gift to the girls in her Bible study group. 

Hope I have inspired some of you to make either the bottle caps or the book marks. 

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

Craft room decorated for Christmas 2014

Hello my blogging friends. I have been MIA, been busy with family, home and just life itself.

I did manage to decorate my craft room for the holidays. Actually I have decorated all of my home, but for now I will show the craft area.

 This section has some of my crafting Christmas things that I will be using for gifts, like tags, pom poms, bells, etc. Also have out some things I want to play with, kits of gingerbreads, gingerbread houses, snowglobes a sled and some other felt ornaments.

Here is my build a bear.

This is my Pink Christmas tree which every year I add a few new ornaments. 

 I have been on a banner high lately. These are a few of the ones I created for Christmas. I plan on selling them at a craft show in 2 weeks. 
Here are some pink mittens I altered, by adding fur like, buttons, pretty pink paper with snowflakes and some felt snowflakes with bling on them. 

Two clocks I added some pretty Santa Clause paper a chain and some beads and to top it off a jingle bell. 

 My new obsession. Altering bottle caps. LOL. They are so fun to make. I plan on selling these at the craft show as well.

This last picture is showing a shadow box with some compartments to hold some of my Christmas embellishments. So fun to see the things you have and easy access to them. 

Hope you guys like what I have done with my craft room. 

Will be back with my Christmas home tour pictures.
