Nie Nie's New Life!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love to read The Nie Nie Dialogues!

She is the strongest, most beautiful woman I know. I love her courage and realness she brings forth.

She makes me realize what I have when life gets you down. She helps me put things into perspective.
What an inspiration! If you haven't followed Stephanie Nielson's story, I suggest you do.

Watch the video and let me know what you think!

This and That!

So, this has got to be the worst closet mess ever!!! It is empty now, but I am having a hard time trying to come up with ways to use the space the best way, and make it pretty too! GRRRR.....
I went to Ikea and got some shoe organizers that attach to the wall, and a pretty bucket from Winners for umbrellas and such.

What a disaster, don't judge please! If you have any advice send them my way......
I took bags of shoes and old coats to the good will, but need to edit some more!

Just one of the many things I've been tackling, between my shifts at the hospital and children.

This is sweet Mya at Chemong Lodge. We went for a family Sunday Brunch and they also had the ice sculptures on display, see the beautiful!

Zoe, turned 13! Wow....We always get a Baskin Robbins Gold Medal Ribbon Cake for her and whatever she wants drawn on it. She received Lady Ga-Ga tickets from her dad and myself and went crazy!!!

Another ice sculpture! They were so beautiful in the sun. Inside they had a huge alligator head by the buffet, it was gorgeous!

My girls! My parents just celebrated their 50 th Anniversary this day and my brother had his new fiance here as well!

Some Roses my hubby got for his girls on Love Day!!! Thats a few things I've been up to, not much decorating projects on the go. I've been busy with work at the hospital.
Still Sofa shopping for the kids loft area upstairs....I just can't decide!!! Hoping to get back to it soon!

Heart Day

I've been crafting away all day with my little one for Valentines Day! I made this wreath for my front door.

Here is a closer look at the little glass embellishments I added, cute eh!

My attempt at some kind of bow, but hey, it' doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, right?!

Mya is obsessed with Mario and his gang. I looked all over and no one sells Valentines of them, so we made our own. I found these candies, got some martha stewart tags and ribbon. I like how they turned out and she just signed the back. (That green guy is Yoshi , I think he's my fav!)

Happy Heart Day to you all!!!

I needed to get on top of Valentine decor, I've been a busy girl lately....So, I made these vintage valentine girls that I found on the internet. (free download) I went and got some nice cardstock from Michaels and cut, glued and added some pretty ribbon.

On the back I placed these cute Martha Stewart labels and added some love notes, like you see above, SWAK (sealed with a kiss) and xoxo some others like love me, love me not etc....

Arent' they sweet!!!
The black and White push pins add a nice touch and helps the ribbon stay in place.

I'm happy with them, and so are the kids!

Are you ready for Love Day?
