Bathroom redo before

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday! I am just taking a break from stripping wallpaper in my bathroom to stop in & say hi! 
I thought I'd show you my "before" pics of my bath & hopefully in a few days I'll have some after pics to share too! lol

Our bathroom is tiny so I'm hoping it won't take me to long to redo it ~ although as I'm going along I keep thinking of things I want to change! We'll just have to wait & see if & what actually happens! lol

Here's the before pics ~ it is so NOT prim!

 I've been daydreaming on the internet about bathrooms all weekend. I've become addicted to pintrest too!! I know I'm behind on the craze & all but at least now I know what the craze is all about! 
Well I'm off to scrape some more - I want to patch tonight & paint tomorrow.
Have a good night everyone!

The lego party

Happy Saturday!!

I wanted to do a little post on Cody's Lego party that we had today.  He had 4 friends come over to play & I must say they were quite rowdy bunch but it was lots of fun.  Our pinata was a success ~ it didn't last nearly as long as I thought it would but we didn't hang it high engough & the boys could hit it from the top. Oh well...they still had fun.  We also played pin the "dot" on the lego block & then we had a contest to see who could put their little lego sets we had bought together the fastest.  I think all the kids had a good time.  I'm pooped now! lol
Here's a few pictures of the fun.

Cody's lego ninja cake ~I actually made it all by myself & I was very amused ~usually my cakes are terrible :O)
pile of legos on the kitchen table waiting for the boys to arrive to build with them 

the boys checking out their loot from the pinata ~ I tried to get some pictures of them hitting the pinata but they were all blurry :(
the boys :)

It was a good day!

I hope you've enjoyed your Saturday.  Thanks for letting me show off my Lego party.  Hopefully next week I'll have something crafty to share. :O)

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying their week! Mine has flown by again ~ I've been super busy planning Cody's birthday party for Saturday & working on some salt dough.  I wanted to share a few ornies & bowl fillers I didn't share yet.  Hopefully next week I can start some other stuff & start getting ready to decorate for Christmas.  I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's homes who have already started ...such great inspiration!
I hope everyone has a great rest of their day.  I'm off to paint a pinata for our party! :O)

OLM ornie swap box has arrived!!!

I recently participated in OLM's ornie swap & my box arrived this weekend!! I must say ALL the ornies I received are just prim perfect!  They have put me in a Christmas mood ~ I even thought about getting the tree out this weekend but the hubby said I have to wait till after Thanksgiving!! :( lol That's the rule around our house every year which is probably good since our house is so tiny I usually take it down the day after Christmas as it is since I'm sick of it taking up so much room!! lol 

Anyways ~ here are the wonderful ornies I received:

 Prim candy canes from Carmen @ PrimCats

 Bag full of wonderful Christmas goodies from Sheila @ Country Impressions

 A prim mitten from Karen @

 Prim girl from Allison @ sew many girls

 Prim "joy" star from Melissa @

Prim star from Shirlee @

Ladies ~ I love them all! Everyone did an amazing job & this swap was so much fun! Thanks to OLM for hosting!

Hope everyone enjoys their week! I've got salt dough to make & a birthday party to finish up for! :O)

I also made the hubby a "Chevy" ornie for the Christmas tree  :O)

I'm working on some Christmas bowl fillers & ornies today.  I hope to have them done tomorrow to share with you.  
I'm also trying to finish up a new punch needle I started & a Santa head.  I feel like I'm all over the place ~ while my salt dough has been cooking or paint has been drying ~ I've been sewing or punching! It feels good to be making stuff again ~ I felt like I was in a rut! 

~my Santa head ~ he needs a nose & some eyes & some more grungyness~

~not sure what color to do the star in yet ~

I'm behind on my blog reading but hopefully I can catch up with everyone this weekend.  My aunt is taking Cody to a Lego event on Saturday in Cleveland (about 2 hrs from here).  He's going to be so excited!! I'm not telling him till tomorrow night because I know it'll kill him to have to wait to go! He's a major Lego fan! We're actually having a Lego birthday party for him in 2 weeks ~ his first "friends from school only" party! lol

Well I think I'm done rambling for now ~ I'm off to start supper.  Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!
