We have a winner!!

We have a winner in my mom's blog party travel mug giveaway!! The winner is Melanie of Whimisical Creations!! Check out her blog it is adorable and she has a wonderful Etsy Shop!! Melanie.. and email will be going out to you to get your mailing info!!

I have had a busy weekend and haven't been able to post. I cleaned up my basement scraproom a bit as well as worked on some scrap projects. I got this cute Orange frame for $1.00 at Michaels last week and spruced it up a little with scraps in my scraproom.
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.
Last week I was on a mission and completely scrubbed and cleaned the girls room and the toy room. Needless to say, one week later both rooms look like I never even touched them!! I did manage to sew some curtains for the toy room and I scrapped some ABC wall decorations to give the room a little style. Maybe one day it will be picked up enough to actually post pics of the WHOLE room!!! A girl can dream, can't she??
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???

Two dollars? You got that for two dollars. I can't believe it. I never seem to stumble on buys that good. You could decoupage that also. I decoupaged a piece of furniture my picky husband keeps all his many colors of socks sorted in. (He's a psychiatrist and likely the best dressed doctor at the mental hospital, by the way. Shopping is his hobby. Mine is gardening. You can imagine the disparate way we look.) I did it up in various old timey looking distressed scrapbook papers. Then edged it with paper that looks like antique rulers. I loved how it came out. Good old Modge Podge!
