    Happenings

    Monday, June 8th, 2015

    Nick had been so busy working on projects around the house for me!

    We are moving the boys to the room where we keep all of the legos and it needed a few modifications to make it work.

    He put in an exterior steel door in place of the screen one.

    He also added a top bunk to the existing bed/couch out there!

    I am so blessed to have a husband that can ask what I want and build it!

    We will hopefully get the boys moved in this week!

    So my 1150sq ft house has 4 bedrooms now, which I think is pretty awesome.

    snake

    We had a little visitor to the garden.

    Since he is not venomous, I told him he could stay.

    The crazy amount of rain we got made my peas go crazy!

    This is my first year trying them and they took over!

    peas

    The boys were pretty excited about eating so many sugar snaps and snow peas.

    We have had so many they are not even getting eaten!

    morning

    Morning Glories are still trying to take over everything.

    When the summer heat tries to kill everything I am always thankful these guys are around so it looks like I can keep something alive.

    box

    I decided to plant some of the ones that popped up in my garden in my window box.

    That way when I forget to water them I did not waist my money…

    Anyone else forget to water their window boxes?

    I am the worst about it when it rains!

    Because I should not have to water things after it rained.

    I will rig a self watering system one of these days.

    Hats, haircuts, and washi tape…

    Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

    I could have just titled this post random but where would the fun be in that?

    hat

    First off, I made a hat from a sweater!

    Usually these sorts of things are epic fails for me but this one worked out!

    sideslouch

    I actually mashed together three different tutorials to make this.

    This was another reason I was surprised that it turned out.

    For the sizing part, I used this one.

    For how to cut it into a slouch shape and how to connect the top, I used this one.

    For how to sew the top, I used this one.

    I did all of the sewing by hand since I do not have a machine.

    slouch

    I like how it turned out but if I did it again, I would probably cut it in more of a rectangle like the last link.

    clips

    I wore this all day and really liked it!

    Score for being to cheap to buy a new hat!

    smiles

    In other news, this boy was in dire need of a haircut.

    upsidedown

    We were hanging out at their fort and I was thinking how nice it would be to cut it outside.

    before

    I then remembered that the extension cord was still out by the fort because Nick is still working on it.

    hair

    So this wild haired boy went inside and got the clippers…

    silly

    It’s gone!

    growl

    No more wild hair!

    Plus, no mess to clean up!

    after

    I think he was happy to be rid of it.

    Too much maintenance.

    washitapefail

    Also, I gave up on washi tape for my family wall.

    I tried two different kinds and it peeled right off.

    I am still too cheap to buy more white picture frames right now though so I just hung some of the prints with these clips I found at Hobby Lobby.

    Has anyone else tried to hang things with washi tape and it failed?

    Random Friday

    Friday, July 20th, 2012

    A piece of lace I bought at a garage sale and threw over my mirror.

    Perfect place for hanging my delicate earrings.

    Too cheap to buy a real curtain for our porch.

    I finally got the cinnamon roll I have been craving for months!

    Not the same as my mom’s fresh from the oven but still good.
