This house is all consuming…

I feel like I should be saying Dear Diary since I haven’t written here in months. The house has taken over my life. Wallpaper, blue paint, 4 types of blue carpet. So far the girls rooms have been stripped of wallpaper and painted as have the dining room and entry way. At the moment I am trying to muster up the energy to start on Phase 1 of the kitchen which involves stripping more wallpaper and painting a few tiles on the back splash that have random herbs on them.
I am trying to decide if I want to chalkboard paint the back wall. Will my kitchen constantly be dusty because of it? Hmm…I am not sure this is the way to go. More research is in order.

Missing my peeps…

Today I am really missing all my friends and family. Moving to new states and meeting new people is a fun adventure but nothing replaces my good buddies from home. I miss you all terribly. No one can replace you. It’s the little things like being in the same time zone, having coffee on the porch, cooking for the masses, random art projects and eating cheese dip from Mexico Chiquito or going to a movie. I am definitely home sick for Arkansas. Over the last 2 years we have moved twice and are still not settled. Oh we will be in New York for years to come but haven’t found a house yet…the search continues. I miss my house in New Mexico too since I am listing things I miss today. Enough whining…gotta make supper.

The beginning…

Hello! If you are reading this THANKS for stopping by. This is my first confession as a new blogger. So here it is…I have never blogged before. It is scary. Putting myself out here on the web for everyone to see what I am up to. Feels a little like a beauty pageant and there are some awesome blogs I subscribe to. Having said this it begs the question of why am I creating a blog in the first place? For my own personal use. A storage place for my crafts, recipes, and thoughts. If anyone wants to read it go ahead. Feel free to use what I put out here, unless otherwise stated, offer me suggestions of more things I might like or even post a question about something I have created or confessed. Just know, I do this for my posterity.
