I love to be inspired by what others have done.

I love to be inspired by other people's projects and goals. It challenges me to get up and get busy. I hope you're inspired to make a little progress on whatever project you've been dreaming of doing.

I've been a bit discouraged by our school progress...but at least my children can cook.  The seven year old wanted an omelet for breakfast...the ten year old found a cookbook and got busy.   I also have a new favorite breakfast casserole.

Happy Easter

My twin always makes the most amazing cards.  I never did get around to posting Easter greetings and since the storms are keeping us awake (and we're fortunate to still have power) I thought I'd post a few pictures.  I did finish the dresses I was making in time for pictures Saturday evening (even had the buttons on).    I hope the photographer was able to get a few good pictures.  Here's a glimpse.

31 Days to Clean

I'm in the mood to clean out.  Maybe this will help:  31-days-to-clean

Good Friday Fun - Easter Eggs

We started off the day with the chidren looking for some items we could dye our eggs with.  Here's what they came up with. 

These are my first two ripe (almost) strawberries...sorry, we can't use them. 

Buttercups & dandelions...can definitely use them.

Red cabbage...that will work.

Easter Preview

We've been ill around here and the original picture date was rained out (fortunate since pink eyes weren't something I wanted to remember at the time...although know I'm wishing I had taken a few pictures).  I have been making progress on these...

The big princess looked adorable at her cello recital.  The little princess will be naked if I don't get some sewing done tomorrow.

 The most exciting news of the week is that I now have a working washer & dryer again.  The laundry room isn't quite ready for a complete reveal...but I am thrilled to have a washer again.

There's a Dinosaur in My Loaf of Bread

Yesterday, when I was slicing bread I ran into something hard....

Fun Accessories

Wow, it's been a while since I've been on here.  No, we haven't been idle.  We've been busy working on some different projects and taking a short trip (and recovering from that trip).  I was reminded today by my dd's outfit that I forgot to post pictures of her new accessories.  She was given a new skirt that was a little too long.  A couple of weeks ago, before church, I ripped off the bottom tier and turned it into rosettes.  I forgot to take a picture of both together....
