While the husband's away....

With Bobby being gone, it a is project mania, organizational disaster around here. I knew he was going to be gone at least a week, so I made a huge list of things I want to do while he is gone. Some of these things are projects I've wanted to do for a while now and some are things like dusting and vacuuming (I know I've been terrible with the deep cleaning lately, but my toilet is always clean!). I stick things like cleaning on the list so I make myself do them. I could immerse myself in projects all day and not get anything important done. I have this thing about marking things off of my lists. I love having things marked off so if it is on the list, I'll do it! If you don't believe me, check out my Pinterest. I have a board named "Made It" for all the project ideas I've completed. I also have a much bigger board named "Make It" for all the things I would like to make.
At the top of my list it looks like this:
Clean house
Take a walk everyday!
Plan Bobby's birthday! (he had a birthday while he was gone. I did a little before he left, but I just gotta surprise him with a couple more little things. Mainly, a cherry pie!)
Back some boxes

Then the project list is where is gets big! I have actually completed a couple projects on the list. Yesterday I spray painted our fan. I know Bobby will love that, but I couldn't resist after I saw it!
I'm really into blue these days. More like teal or turquoise, but it seems like all my projects or clothes turn out blueish. The other project I finally completed was this frame I saw. My inspiration came from non other then a pin. I changed it up a little, but I think that it turned out pretty darn cute. This is Bobby and my fisrt dance song at our wedding!
Even though these are only 2 of the like 15 projects I want to do, it's a start. I am planning on finishing Mr. Clayton's quilt tonight while watching The Bacherlorette. I'll post pictures when I have it complete!
A couple of weekends ago Bobby and I stopped at Hobby Lobby (that's a mouth full) and got some shadow boxes to frame some antiques we have. I was hoping to hit a sale. And much to my delight, there was a 50% off sale! It made my day! I haven't taken pictures yet (and still have one left to complete), but I will do that as well!

Now at the bottom of my list are those things like painting at the house and finishing the pantry floor that I would really love to put off, but it's on the list so it must be done!

Hope everyone has a great Monday and a good last week of June! Where does the time go?



  1. Both projects are really, really cute!!! You continue to amaze me. I'm so excited to see Clayton's quilt finished!! I'm going to blog about it on my blog, so my friends can see what a creative blessing you are!!

    Love ya,


  2. Love the fan and the cute! (I too am loving the turquoise/teal look lately).
    I can't wait to see the other projects you get done :)

  3. I can't wait to see Clayton's quilt! I also can't wait for you to meet Clayton. He is pretty much the coolest baby in the world (I'm not biased at all)!

  4. Love the fan!! I've been wanting to paint our fan too!
