Oh Monday!

So here is a few after pictures that I promised:
The new and improved sink. We were originally going to replace the faucet, but then we were like how can we put this new faucet on that old ugly sink?

I would REALLY REALLY LOVE to replace the cabinet doors - but that is NOT in any budget I have! I would be content to paint them but I am really not sure where to begin - they are not wood - YUCK!

Here we have those ugly candle holders + dinner plates = super cute mini cake stands!!

I didn't take an after photo of my desk turned sewing table - because it was covered with misc stuff and well I just didn't feel like cleaning it off!

(Keep scrolling for the before photos!)

Tomorrow I will post my project I did on Sunday.

Is it Spring Break yet??

I have the best mother-in-law EVER! she is taking my 9 year old and my 11 year old for the week of Spring Break - Beginning Saturday! I SOOOO need a break. Just some peace and quiet. Some time to get caught up. Some time all to myself. Maybe a trip to the spa, get my nails done...

YEAH RIGHT! I have a CRAP LOAD of things to do, finish, START!

Goal #1 Get little sister - (who has left to go on a trip to Ireland, England and Wales - BRAT!) Get her room emptied and painted. This is a HUGE project! Her room is HUGE and full of STUFF - Most of it she no longer wants or has just plain grown out of so I have to box up, clean and move it to the other room and THEN I can begin painting. she wants stripes just like the ones I did in my living room. See below: But she wants the stripes in Purple and Silver. (she is 16)

This photo was in 2008 and boy have things changed! I will have to post about that!

Goal#2 Finish work in Bathroom - entails more painting. (caulking, filling holes, more painting)

Goal #3 Finish Taxes  I don't even do them I just have to organize a HUGE stack of papers, list all the totals for my accountant!

Goal#4 do not add anything else to the to do list!

Coupon Organization

I started "couponing" last summer and I have been trying to find something that holds ALL my coupons - yesterday on a little trip to "town" I found it!

 It has 19 pockets, is long enough to hold coupons without folding them and I think it's pretty too!

I made a list of how I seperate my coupons

Then I made labels! Now off I go to fill it with savings!

Getting caught up.

I am currently cleaning out my craft/office room, garage, laundry room and I have some serious Spring Fever. The last two weeks I have spent in the car - Dr appointments, meeting after meeting, running the kids to appointments, and when I didn't HAVE to go somewhere - I did NOTHING. So now I am cleaning looking at projects. The Husband and I went out in the backyard and went over plans for laying railroad ties and filling spots with fill dirt.
I just confirmed the kids are going to Grandmas for Spring Break! How I love my Mother-In-Law! I have plans for some board and batten, painting and I am sure lots of working late!
I should have some photos tomorrow!
