About Me

My photo
Thrifty finds, DIY, and a soon to be Home Reno...


I love to find cheaper ways to do expensive things. Whether this be through Thrift-store-shopping or DIY decorating, I find a way to get it done. I NEVER shop in the regular priced area of a store. If I do happen to see something I love that is regular priced, I wait til it goes on sale. OR, i make it my own version of it. I love to paint and do crafts. However, being a mother of two and a night-shift nurse, I have very little time to do it. We are also in a rental home while we search for my forever home. So, I am LOVING the blog world right now as I find ideas for my new home. Be sure to follow me so I will know I'm not just blogging to myself. :-)

The "almost" done nursery

I'm waiting on a big red H to hang over the glider

I couldn't get a really good picture of this, but, this is the train pic i've been working on. I may add ribbon in between the canvases. I can't decide.

33 weeks 5 days

Tonight, my wonderful friends at work gave me a baby shower. First of all, this is baby #2 and I expected NOTHING. It was wonderful! We had a great turn out and received a ton of great things...clothes, diapers, wipes, gift cards and the list goes on. I am SO BLESSED!

More projects

Since we moved Lanie Mae into her big girl bed, I had to do some new art for above her bed. So far, this is what I have done. I plan on doing something for the other wall in the next few days. Speaking of big girl, I also have posted one of her 3K Fall school pics (just for you, mama)

The other project I did last week was painting cork board squares for the nursery. I can't wait to have pics of Baby Hudson to put on them!
