Pinterest Party Friday #86


Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope you all had a great week! Mine was a little chaotic. I was part of a furniture tour yesterday, but I was unable to start on my piece until Tuesday due to some projects for clients being due, so I knew I would be cutting it close. I painted all day Tuesday and Wednesday and finished a big dresser that I bought off of Craigslist a few months back. When I purchased the dresser the man had told me that the hardware was all in one of the drawers. So yesterday, … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #85


Happy Friday everyone!!! I'm pretty excited that Topher and the unnamed child have a three day weekend! He's going to help me build some shelving in my new laundry room! I don't mind getting down to work with the saws and nailguns, but he's the brains behind drawing-up the plans. I show him an example of what I want, and he does and the measuring and sketching it out. The unnamed child has been binge-watching seasons of "Friends", and of course I tend to get sucked in every time I walk by … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #84


Happy Friday everyone!!! Have you all been running around like me, trying to finish up buying those last few Christmas gifts? Have none of you started wrapping anything yet too? No? Well then it's just me then. Topher has the day off, and we are running some errands, cleaning, and working on projects. Jealous much? The unnamed child is taking her last finals as we speak, and then she is off for 18 days!! It will probably take her about that long to get her room clean. Today's … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #83


Happy Friday everyone!! It's a dreary, rainy day here in Wichita, and of course I have a ton of errands to do. Tonight is our big dinner that we host every year. I'll tell you a bit more about that next week, but let's just say I'm heading to the grocery store to get 7 lbs of bacon. My laundry room is finally painted, and I will hopefully get it all stenciled this weekend. I'm also working on several custom pieces that I have to get finished, and my giant china hutch sold in my booth, … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #82


Happy Friday everyone!!! This week has been a little crazy, I've been running around all week getting errands done, but as far as projects go ... not so hot. Today I am working on some mantels for a client and am working on my totally dismantled laundry room. This weekend, the unnamed child has an ACT Prep class and has to work, and we are having a BD party for my brother and sister-in-law since their birthdays are super close together. Hopefully I can get the rest of my Christmas … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #81


Happy Friday everyone!!! I think I'm finally over this yucky virus! It kind of knocked me on my butt, and now I'm super behind on everything. I'm determined to get all of the Christmas decor up this weekend, and I need to get started on a couple of other big projects -- like gutting my laundry room. I'm headed out to Vintage Market Days this morning to see what kind of new goodies I can find. It is darn cold out, so I plan on doing some major bundling-up. Do you know the most exciting … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #80


Happy Friday everyone!!! This week has been a bit hectic. Yesterday was the unnamed child's 17th birthday, and being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until the last couple of days to frantically run around and get gifts. You would have been proud, though, I made her a big turkey dinner -- and me being the non baker that I am even made her a cake! Okay, so it was from a box ... but still. I've also been getting ready for a holiday knock off tour that will be taking place on Monday and … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #79


Happy Halloween everyone!!! I'm actually writing this on Thursday night. I just finished with a pretty little end table today, and Topher and I just found a cute little spot to shoot it. We also had a quick little dinner out while the kid was at work, and of course we had to hear about how it's so unfair that we go out to eat without her. She thinks this whole job thing is going to be the death of her. She was cute the other night when she came bursting in the door so excited, telling us … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #78


Happy Friday everyone!!! This week seemed to fly by!  I finished some projects, put my Halloween decorations up, and I did a little babysitting for my niece. The weather here has been a little warm for fall, but I'm good with that. Not for the unnamed child though. She's not happy unless you can see your breath and can pull out her thickest sweaters. I've got some new projects up my sleeve for this weekend, and I need to do a little work on my furniture booth.  If you have some extra … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #78


Happy Friday guys!!! Originally, we were supposed to be in Houston right now getting ready to see Oprah. Unfortunately, my mom had to have surgery and wasn't able to go with me, so we Topher, the kiddo, and I left for a little getaway to Kansas City for the last few days. Today (Thursday) we ate way too much at Macaroni Grill, and then we decided to enjoy the gorgeous Fall weather and walk off some of our calories at the Plaza. We again ate way too much at Cracker Barrel, and then did a … [Read more...]
