“Get it Done” Wednesdays nearly “Done us in!”


Hey all!  We are finally getting around to posting our “Get it Done” Wednesdays projects. It nearly killed us but here we are – better late than never, right?

I, in my usual fashion, waited until the last minute to carry out my project. I started it last night, but left most of it for this morning. Hey! It wasn’t like I was doing “nothing,” I have been working on getting some of my 7 year old’s birthday party stuff in order; invitations, planning, etc. At least I got my project done! You see, I knew this blog was a good idea to get me moving!

In Amy’s defense she finished her project in ample time, but just didn’t get the final picture and writing done. And, with her 7 year old’s birthday party to prepare for and throw tomorrow, well . . . you know how that goes. Good luck Amy! I’ll be following your footsteps with my own birthday nightmares soon enough!

And, as if that wasn’t enough, we have been experiencing some technical difficulties with getting the text and pictures to be where we want them.

Let me just say, “@#$%$#%&”

There, now I feel better (until I try to go in and fix it again!)

Well . . . you’ll see when you get there.

Bear with us, please, we hope to know what we’re doing at some point . . .

Christmas in July


We know it’s only mid-July, but we have big plans for changing out our Christmas decor this year, or adding to our existing ones. Once school starts in mid-August time will be short, plus there’s Birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and before you know it– it’s Christmas. Sooo, we decided to try a Christmas in July (and August, September . . . December!)

Christmas in July!  I am so excited to start getting ready now so that I am less stressed during the holidays.  As always, I am being less ambitious than Christy but I have limited time this month and knew that this was going to be my limit of projects 🙂

I have fallen in love with Pinterest — all my ideas are coming from pins that I found on my friends boards.  I picked projects that I have most of the supplies for and anything else I have to buy will be inexpensive.  I will also be making my Christmas cards this year but I won’t be doing that project until the beginning of November.

I am changing my whole scheme. Here’s what I have in mind: A more warm homey, lodgey kind of feel (but with some flair.) My choice of materials are going to be plaids, wools, old sweaters and yarn. I think I’ll start with the balls (I bought styrofoam ones last year or the year before. I have been mulling this idea around in my head that long. See that’s why I thought about creating this blog – to make me get into action!)

Let’s see how far I get. I have a Birthday to plan and pull off in 2 weeks as well! Plus my “Get it Done” projects. AAAAHHHH I feel the preasure already!!
