I love these ideas with the old rake heads, but can't decide which project to do, so I will be on the hunt for THREE old rake heads this year...
I may have time (LOL ) to whip up some of these cute egg cozies by Sunday...
And my kids are going to be eating a lot of soup so I can have these cute vases on my picnic table this spring....

I have started painting my guest bathroom downstairs and it is taking me a bit more time than painting used to with three kids in the house. Thank Goodness spring break is over and school is back in session. Now during the day I only have one little one at home during the day and maybe I can finish that bathroom!! Before and after pics are soon to come, I promise!! I DID repaint and distress a dresser I have in my upstairs hallway. Once the hallway is painted I think it will pop. It wasn't painted before and I bought it last year at a garage sale for $2.00 to hold all of my towels since this house doesn't have a linen closet. It works well. I painted it and distressed it and I think it turned out well.
I did also hang some curtains in the baby's room. I had been looking for SOMETHING for his room ( we have terrible windows.. the more coverings over them the better! ) I found this curtain for $ 4.99 at Goodwill. Not my first choice for a window covering, but it works and it was cheap. believe it or not I chose the colors of red and blue for his room and it is getting hard to find stuff for little boys rooms in those colors!! Huh... Anyway, I also got these cute camping lanterns for Jayson's room at Goodwill for $1.99 each. I grabbed both, one was red and one was green. For now they are on a shelf in his room, but they may move. Once I get Jayson's dresser painted, his room wil basically be done for now... but nothing is EVER finished, really, is it???

I was also very annoyed at all of the magnet clutter on my refrigerator, so I dug out this old wall basket, painted it a light blue and spruced it up to corral all of my magnets on the fridge. I think it looks kinda cute, and much cleaner!!
I just love this paper... it's glittered.. I know you can't see it in the pics. Yesterday I made a trip to town and hit Joann's and Michaels and I struck out at JoAnn's, but hit the jackpot at Michaels!! I was looking for plastic Easter eggs for a craft project and JoAnn's was completely out!! So the kids and I hit the burger King drive through and drove on to Michaels. They had some GREAT deals and their dollar section was loaded with things I needed. I got these cute magnets in the dollar section and later I will post some pics of the other clearance items I got.. UNBELIEVABLE!!! I am going to head back there this weekend to get some gifts for upcoming birthday gifts.Now I am anxiously awaiting my UPS man for a large Close to My Heart scrapbooking delivery!! Ya HOOOOO!!!! Remember.. tonight I will be drawing a name in the travel mug giveaway, so leave a comment to be entered to win a cute travel mug!!
