Current Project

I'll give you a sneak peak at a project I have been working on. A few weeks ago I stopped into my favorite fabric store- Home Fabrics and Rugs. It has tons of closeout fabrics at awesome prices. And then the whole back section is just for clearance fabric that is even discounted more. And most of it is drapery weight fabric- nice stuff for any house projects you might have in mind. So on this particular trip, I was looking for some fabric to make curtains for our closet doors. I knew I wanted something with red in it since that's what I'm using as an accent color in that room. That's when I spotted this:

Yeah that one!

Here it is up close.

And check out the price!

So I've been busy cutting and trying out some hem tape. I figured no need to sew, since these curtains are just for our closets and won't be inspected carefully by anyone....hopefully!

I'll be back later with the after pictures. That is, if they turn out well.

But that will have to wait until next week, because this weekend I will be busy visiting my brand new niece, Ellie- I can't wait to hold her and kiss all over her sweet face!
Pictures of her will follow too, I'm sure!

Well, thanks to the wintry mix around here, we woke up this morning to no power in the house. So we bundled up and headed to the in-laws to watch movies all day on their giant TV from the comfort of their new recliners :) We're lucky they just live around the corner!

(isn't he cute in his hat and scarf... I think so)

We saw this snowman on the way.
Complete with hula skirt & coconut bra.

My rain-boots sure came in handy.
It may be cold and wet outside, but my toes have been toasty and dry!

Also, lucky for us these little cuties were in town for the weekend.
Ty made a beard of Floam.

The younger two wouldn't stop long enough for a picture.
It was so cute to watch Lainey follow Bryce around and copy whatever he was doing
Even when the activity of choice was throwing a floam ball at her head!

Silly kids :)

Around Here

Here's what's been going on this past week! I've been too busy with work to post everyday, but as today was a snow day I had a little extra time.

Last weekend our twin nieces came in for a visit. Kinley & Ansley, you are so sweet and it's fun to watch you grow! I can't believe they are almost one.

Shopping with the sister-in-laws & mother-in-law (Betty wouldn't get in the picture), always a good time :) I'm blessed to have family that I enjoy and love so much on both sides.

And this is what I've been reading this week. Contemplating making something special for Valentines... not sure if I can. I need a lot of practice. Anyone hungry?

These pretties were from my sweet husband! When he brought them home earlier this week they were all closed up and green, but yesterday they decided to bloom. Hopefully they will last a little while- they brighten up my kitchen so much!

And finally . . . snow! Oh it's beautiful in the trees- I love it!

And that's been our week! Now we're looking forward to a great weekend with friends and family!
