Weekend Randomness and a Craft Room Cast of Characters

1.) This Monday: After looking forward to it for months, now that it's almost here I'm about 64.72% sad. I blame the 53 (and counting!) 100+ degree days that we've had this summer. It's clearly made me a sappy, sentimental mess and unable to part with these five sweet, adorable children. Ask me again around dinner time and I'm sure to have changed my mind.

2.) The Nester is inviting people to play along with her 31 Days Of Change and I had the ridiculous idea that it would be fun to do a month long series on gift wrapping (or rappin' if you're a gangsta like me).

A whole THIRTY ONE POSTS IN A ROW coming from somebody that doesn't have the motivation to post more than every few weeks.

The more I thought about it, the sillier it became because I'm lazy and it would be a lot of work. And I'd have to be organized. AND it's a topic that everybody already knows about so the life changing value is zero. Oh, and did I mention? I'm lazy. So....we'll see.

{Although last Sunday I made a list and got up to 27, so maybe with a little help from Pinterest and google images it's almost possible?}

{Or perhaps a series on how to be more reflective/reverent/non-list making during church is what I should be doing.}

3.) The most exciting thing to happen this summer, aside from ending our 5 months of unemployment, is a big ol' empty space that's been converted to Mama's room for......whatever I want to do in it. The big projects are done and I might actually finish organizing all my craft crap by the time the kids move out of the house in 2022.

Okay, if that's really true I shoulda just waited and used their room instead.


In the meantime, here's the starting line-up:

* neutral blank walls * an old dresser which is almost as impressive as the koolaid vomit stain (for those of you who were lusting and coveting our custom car carpeting....and I don't blame you. Quite posh.) * some kind of pie safe(?) thing, although it would take something with a LOCK for a pie to be safe in this house * el lampo, which somehow sounds more exciting/exotic/better looking in Spanish * a desk my friend refused to move with so I graciously took it off her hands because that's the kind of person I am * and a drawer found in the alley by my neighbors trash can. I don't know how this room could possibly turn out anything but glamorous and refined.

Wish me luck.


  1. El lampo and random drawer are design gold
    Your room is going to be fabulous :)

  2. Love your blog. You're hilarious and inspiring. Congrats on the end to unemployment! God bless you.

  3. Why does your dog look so guilty? Was he responsible for the stain?
    Incoming Posts! And lots of them! This makes my day.

  4. AAAAHH!! Don't toy with me! 31 days of gift wrapping (rappin')? YES YES YES!!! You'd better go through with it!

  5. How bout you just do '31 days of how to be more awesome/gangsta like me', cause I could totally dig that. You could start it off with rappin', then move to words that end with -izzle, and perhaps end it with things to call your significant other, such as Boo, or Shawty. I'm just sayin...I would totally read it!

  6. Love all the furniture finds, I can't wait to see what you do with them and your mom room. I feel you on the posting every day--I used to do much better but now I'm lucky to get a post up once a week.

  7. Love all those pieces! Leave it to you to love that little sextet up into something beautiful.

  8. That room is going to turn out amazing and you know it! Don't take a long time, because I can't wait to see it!!! I'm posting this under my new blog name, but this is one of the Rebecca's. Rebecca Pope to be exact!

  9. Also, I forgot to mention that I gave your blog a "shout out" in my blog today. If you get a chance, stop by!

  10. Love your blog and sense of humor!!
