Our House in Virginia (Part 3)

Here’s part three of our house tour, today is the living room and the kitchen! (part one and two are here) Here is the living room as we found it, there was a big hole over the fireplace, and a gross carpet. The yellowy orange color on the walls was the only color in the…

Our House in Virginia (Part 2)

In case you missed it, here is Part 1 of our house tour! This post I thought I would talk about the dining room and the bonus room that used to be my studio, *cry* but the bonus room tour will be short since the studio has been touched upon before, and it’s mostly just staged…

Our House In Virginia (Part One)

When we bought our house 3.5 years ago, we did it knowing that we would be moving this year (military assignments are easy like that, they give you an end date up front!) But we bought a house anyway, probably as a reaction to the awful housing we lived in, in DC. (it was gross)…

My Sewing Room / Craft Studio

Last Class and a Side Table!

Tonight was my last class EVER for my bachelor’s degree! Now I just have 2 exams standing between myself and graduation, can I get a WHOOT!!! WHOOT!!! I have been very naughty and sewed an Anthro-esque pseudo knock-off top for Emmie the day before yesterday, when I should have been tidying my house, but didn’t want to. I…

What’s Up? Wednesday

So it’s the middle of the week and I can’t believe that I only have one more day before the kids go on spring-break this Friday! YAY!!! I love it when the kids are home, I don’t plan any special activities necessarily, but I just love having them here with me as little presences in the…

Project Run and Play Week 5 "Special Occasion"

Well, I finally was able to take Emmie out to have her picture taken today, it has been raining here, and I needed a break in the weather to take her “on location” for her shoot. Are you ready for my offering for Project Run and Play‘s week 5? No? Please look at it?!?! Okay,…
