Merry Christmas

It has been so long since I've posted. I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Since the last time I've posted my dad had to be placed in the nursing home. My mother could no longer take care of him. She did her best for as long as she could, but he came home Thanksgiving Day and will be home for Christmas. 

I have also started a small business called Bath Baubles, it is bath salts, bath bombs and scrubs. I will also be adding hand made soaps.
The business has succeeded so well, and I am very grateful. I also work full time and it has been a challenge, but a good challenge.

Merry Christmas bloggy buddies!

Wheathered Witch Journal Page

My attempt at a witch.  Blogger is giving me much grief! Sometimes it will not let me type and it keeps hanging up. I don't know why it is doing that, maybe it's my computer!
Any way Happy Friday. Wishing everyone a wonderful week end!

Gone too long...MLC (Mid Life Crisis) car...and some ATC's

Wow I have not posted in forever! I have been so busy lately. With school starting back I have started working full-time and do not have a lot of play time. I have been car shopping for months now. I originally decided to get a new car with great gas mileage. I actually could not decide on a car.  So when I saw this little car on the lot, it was love at first sight.  I only have to carry around my little grand daughter now, so I got it.  Not a new car and not at all great on gas mileage, but I love it! I call it my Mid Life crisis car. So I think I will keep it for a while and get a new car later, and the price was GREAT!

Here are a couple of ATC's I have made, these will be the last of summer ATC's, now on to Fall and Holiday ATC's. I'm so excited about fall, I just wish the temperatures reflected fall and not hot, humid summer.

Wishing everyone a great week end!

Back to School ATC Swap

These are the ATC's I made for a Back to School swap I participated in.

I just LOVE the little boy in this one, it reminds me of my curly headed little boys when they were young.

I really hope my swap partner likes them, they are going to Australia!

Red Neck Beach Fun!

Wow, July has flown by. School is going to start back in a week, I'm not sure if I'm ready.  I really enjoyed my week end.  I got to spend time with my wonderful sons and my Grand baby. She had never been to a creek, so we decided to introduce her to the REDNECK Beach!  This creek has been used for years. My cousins and I played here, I have taken my boys here when they were little and now I have taken my grand baby!  We all had a blast and she LOVED it!  I so enjoy simple pleasures as this and making memories.


Wishing everyone a Wonderful week!

DIY Home Made Chalk Paint Dining Table Makeover

After two years of saying I was going to re do this table, I finally did it using home made chalk paint.

1 cup of paint mix with 1/4 cup plaster of paris, small bit of water (maybe 1/8 of a cup). Mix plaster of paris up with water first and add to paint, mix thoroughly.
