Thank you Pinterest

This weekend Trey went hunting with a friend. I was extremely productive. I guess you could say my energy is back with a vengeance.

Friday I went to Hobby Lobby to get some crafting supplies to fulfill some ideas I found on Pinterest, both for the nursery and for Christmas crafts. When I got home I decided I needed to clean out my crafting cabinets as they were quite messy. So I re-organized them. Then I set out the crafts that I would complete this weekend. I called my dad to help me get all of my Christmas decorations out of the attic (as I had forgotten to have Trey help me with that before he left.) While Dad was over here, I mentioned that Sudden Link was going to have to come out in order to install a jack for us to move the desk/internet into the guest room. Dad said "well didn't you have a TV in there?" I said yes, that we had. So he proceeded to say that the internet could just be plugged into that outlet if he wasn't mistaken. He looked at it and sure enough, that turned into us moving the desk/internet right then. So now that chore is complete. The guest room is now converted to a guest room/office and the nursey is one step closer! I cleaned the guest room out as it had been home to all the nursery stuff while we cleaned it out to get rid of the second desk and futon (sold in a garage sale a couple of weeks ago) - so it was all moved back into the nursery and now the guest room is liveable again.

Saturday I went to a baby shower and then came home and cleaned house, did laundry, and got all my Christmas decorating done (minus the outside lights, which Trey must do sometime this week), got our Christmas letter written and labels edited, and then did some crafting. It might be safe to say that my nesting has begun??

my mess of new crafts to begin for the weekend:

the tree I made out of rolled scrap paper and glued to a canvas:

I tinted these wine corks to use in a later project:

I made these letters to go in the nursery:

And I had one of the full name up, but I just took it down. I'm not ready to have it on full display just yet. I have no problem telling people when they ask about it, but for some reason, I'm just not ready to display it yet! So you may have been lucky enough to see it... :)

Now I'm exhuasted and ready to go to bed. It's 7:00pm Sunday. :D


  1. I have a craft planned that is a combination of two of those you just did. How funny!

  2. I'm also making a tree out of the wine corks. Could that be the one you are doing?
