Nothing, nada, zero, zilch!

I have nothing to show you today. I thought for sure that I would, but I don't.

No painted table, no Valentine cards, no hanging charger plates and no heart wreaths. Instead of working diligently on these projects over the weekend, I chose to spend time with my kids, husband and extended family. And it was totally worth it!

My husband, however, spent all of yesterday putting up crown moulding in our master bedroom. I have to say that it's one of the best home improvement projects that he's ever done. Way to go, honey!

I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with pictures of what HE did and possibly a few pictures of what I managed to do. ;-)

Rain=Indoor Projects

It has been raining in our area since late last night and will continue raining throughout today. I'm pretty sure we should be several feet under by the time it's done. Only kidding! ;-)

With that said, I will be diving into several projects while I'm stuck inside. For starters, I'll be working on those silhouette chargers that I've been saying for two weeks now I was going to do. Then, I'll be making one of these:

This particular wreath was made by ItzFitz on Etsy. I absolutely adore it! And hopefully I'll have it hung just in time for Valentine's Day.

Last, I will be repainting a small side table we bought several years ago. It has definitely seen better days and I just can't take the cup stain on top anymore!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Yep, we had our first snow early Saturday morning. Most everyone in our county had snow starting late Friday night but the area where I live didn't get any until several hours later. I was completely fine with that though because I don't really like the snow--to be completey honest!

I take that back. I like the snow, I don't like the ice!

Overall, it was a pretty fun time being at home with my kids and my husband who managed to get an extra day off (due to the snow, of course). We were able to repaint our entire bedroom, which I absolutely love!

I say all of this because...I am behind on my other craft project. You know, the one that includes the charger plates and silhouettes. I'm behind for two reasons--our printer is out of ink and painting our bedroom was top priority once we started it. ;-)

I hope to finish my other project this week, so again...stay tuned!
