Last night at work I kept noticing little piles of mud all over the floor.
"So gross and SO lazy" I thought to myself. "People really do need to
learn to clean up after themselves!!" I cleaned it up and then awhile
later found more little piles! "Thinking again.."COME ON PEOPLE!!"

Later I realized I had mud in my shoes!!

Today I:

Opted not to go on an adventure.
 Rather I did many a little project
 that has been calling to me.

I made a tiny tag out of a
tiny kit I got at the thrift store Friday.
Used Sculptorey clay and rubber stamps!
Fun and easy!

Made a tiny peg doll..and learned what better to do next time.

Painted a coat of yummy black paint on
a bench that has been calling for it for a long time.

Did a few loads of wash.

Tried to clean the head light haze
w/ toothpaste (I read about it online)
it worked kind of!

Noticed a big scratch on my hood.

Reminded that just because something
thinks they are right doesn't make them right.
Trying to MAKE people do what you
want never EVER works!

Current Crushes!

My tastes are always changing!
But no doubt I always have a CRUSH!

I don't often LAUGH HARD...I just don't have it in me! Buuuut (said w/ a
British accent) this show makes me totally bust up! I heart it!!

These darling British girls also make me giggle!

I also really love these peg dolls! So cute!!

I also super love!!
The hope of spring! Walking barefoot. Sitting in the warm spring sun.
The smell of new life and blossoms!

Miss Jenny Said:

Miss Jenny is the cutest and most fairy
 like 4 year old in my primary class.
Today I told her I was sorry she wasn't chosen to act out
a part in sharing time. She assured me it was fine
that she didn't want to waste her acting today
because she acts out the Christmas story every year
and she'd like to save all her acting ability for that!

Lemon aide!

Oh how I wish I had a little lemon tree of my very own!
It would be so cute and yummy!  Alas I live in a frosty place
but I do get PEACHES so I feel ok about the whole deal!

Speaking of lemons. I saw a tip on pintrest and tired it.
Use Lemon furniture polish spray on your shower door to clean it! The
citrus cuts through the soap scum  and the oil to
 keep water spots and soap scum from ever coming back!.
I wanted it to be magic. It wasn't but it worked pretty well.
Try it and report back!

I also love this. Perfect for when your house gets a funk!

Happy Spring!

Door Sweet Door!

While going to get my free Red Box (Do you want one too? Type in
Heart in the promo code area and get one on me!!) I remembered reading on KSL about
a local company giving away FREE cupboard doors. I went to have a look see and
let's just say many projects will be done in the next little while. You want some free doors to?
Call John at Anvil Cabinets or just stop by!!

Love or something like it!

So I worked on my little road side
cabinet last weekend.
I used the new product I heard so much about
and I thought I'd give you a review!
That is him in the middle
His name is Howard!
This product is about 9 dollars and I got it at Home Depot in Ogden
Howard states that it is everything in a can. It smooths, stains and finishes.
It does what it states. Here is what I disliked!

Unless you are super human it leaves undone spots. Meaning the spots you missed!
If you look you can see little missed spots on the darling below!
Also I am not a fan of a glossy finish. Howard offers a glossy finish.
MMM not a fan! Other wise it was fun and did what it said it would!
I might find an application where I love it so I will try it again!

Some other products I use often!
Danish oil. It is like self tanner and lotion for furniture. No finish
just a big fat drink for dry wood! Love it!

Mr. on the left is to brake down a not so good finish.
You can also use this to remove varnish or distress a piece.
I love this stuff and use it a lot!!

Lotsa Love!!

I heart!!

I love that her kids are the color of the rainbow
and so darn cute! I love the beauty she sees in the world and
the way she can put it in to words!
I also love these hearts she made the other day!

Hello! The girl used a magazine and sewing string!

Today I made my own!!

Ms. Patch has made these in the past too!! I guess I need a
heart punch! 

She even sewed these darling together!

Just my cuppa tea!

The last two days have been awful! Really kicked me in the rear! Really!
But on Wendsday I went on quite the adventure! I thought
I'd share. Most great things happen when I am just minding my own business!
I was having a little look see at the other day
I saw an ad for a company looking for creative minded people to come to a one hour panel
and share their ideas on the company's products. That was all that was said.
I signed up and forgot a bout it. A week later I got an e-mail asking me to verify
that I was still interested. It  stated the date and the time..and I noticed it was on my day off.
I signed up thinking for sure it was a hokes.

It wasn't. I went to the Raddison downtown SLC and talked to
people about what I liked of didn't like about their crafty product!
(I can't say the company because I signed away my life saying
I wouldn't!) It was so fun to have someone PAY me for give'n them
a piece of my mind. I told my sister it was my dream job!
 I was there 45 minutes. I was paid 50 BUCKS!
and I was given 50 dollars worth of product from the company. Fifty
dollars worth of product of MY choosing!

You bet I'll be looking for more of those "Jobs"!

Thank goodness for happy endings!

Thirteen Hours

Today I worked a thirteen hour shift at work.
I feel like my soul has been sucked out via my ear!
Not pretty!

"Some days, doing 'the best we can' may still fall
short of what we would like to be able to do,
 but life isn't perfect – on any front – and doing
 what we can with what we have is the most
 we should expect of ourselves or anyone else."
-Mr. Rogers

Baby Nephew...

Dear Nephew,
You will be here is just over 2 months. I can't wait!
You'll be super darling I just know it!
I have decorated your room 200 x over in my minds eye.
Stripes, polkadots and hippos and ric rac are must haves I know you agree!
Your mommy is very nice I am sure you'll LOVE her, but alas
she dose not share the same decorating need I do.
Where I see dust ruffles and perfectly placed knick nacks
she sees only burp clothes and nose suction.
She is a nuts and bolts lady and I am a decorate and primp
kinda auntie! Would you mind darling baby boy kicking her a few
times (softly) in the ribs and let's see if we can
get her to see things in a "Thrifted goodness!" "Better now then later."
 "Good things take time" kinda way!
Reminder her too that Auntie loves this kinda stuff and is
ready to get started any minute!!

 I love you!

P.S. I saw these today! Pipe cleaner heart garland. HELLO! So cute and
so simple. This is a must have for today!
Happy Day!

*I so want to make one of the above heart wreaths!
*On Sunday one of the girls in my primary class looked at me
like she just ate a lemon and asked why I had curly hair. I assured her
I had planned it and she decided it was ok w/ her.
*I love this spring like weather.
*Last night one of the girls at the group home asked
what language I speak being a vegetarian and all.
*I need to find round paper doilies but can only find hearts!
*I am tired!

*** I am on Tip Junkie again!! So Flattered!
