Thirty one years ago today...

I was in the hospital giving birth to my oldest daughter, Melissa. Seriously people, where does the freakin' time go?! Knowing that I have a child that old makes me feel, well....OLD. Next time you look at your little ones, look AGAIN, because before you know it they are grown up with kids of their own! Happy Birthday, Miff!

I know it has been a while since I have showed you cookies, but I really have not had a reason to bake any. This weekend however, that changes...I have 3 different St. Patrick's Day boxes that have to go out on Monday, so I will baking and decorating my heart out!

You can see from my ticker---->, that I am still going to WW and you can also see that the journey is a slow one. I try to tell myself that the slower it comes off, the slower I will gain it back...not that I plan on doing that of course, just sayin'...

So, I said yesterday I will post pics of my craft room...how ironic that now that I have it completely done, I rarely use it anymore. For those of you that don't know, I used to be a big paper crafter...first a scrapbooker, then a cardmaker and then a stamper...I haven't done any of these things in a very long time. I probably spend the most time sewing in there now, making some more aprons that I will share next week.

As I was taking the pictures, I realized that I had refinished every piece of furniture in this room EXCEPT the sewing machine table, which was my Mother's. This was not planned, it just sort of evolved!

So for anyone that might be interested, feel free to take a walk on my wild side...sorry about the small pictures, just click on them to enlarge.









Can I just say that I love the transformation on these two tables. I don't think I posted "befores" on these, but they were light oak and desperately in need of some lovin'! I picked up each these tables for about $25. Love the stained wood on top with the black legs!











Fun fact: This is the sign you face while sitting on the toilet...yes, I have a very twisted sense of humor but it still makes me laugh every time I see it!



And since I am sure you are wondering if I actually take showers in my craft room, I do not...but that is valuable space and the curtain hides this mess perfectly!



There you have it...that's as wild as it gets for me! Thanks for stopping by, next week I promise to have more cookies to share! Till then...happy baking!




There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
