Before - After

One more project I can check off my list.  We have a fireplace in our living room that, in my opinion, was an eyesore.  The original brick reminded of something from the 80’s and it seemed dark and dreary.


So I headed to Lowe’s and bought some masonry paint and got to work.  It was messy and time consuming (three coats of paint and it could still use a few more), but well worth it!


Ignore the black dust under the knob in the middle and the cluttered shelves                  Just focus on the fireplace!

Craft Blog

My mom and I have started our craft blog!  We both love making things, baking and decorating so we decided to pull our efforts together and blog about it.  Check it out at


I live in a house full of males – that is my only explanation for my new obsession with Barbies and making them clothes.  Maybe some day I’ll have a granddaughter to pass the mountains of my latest craze to…..





In case you are wondering – I have my own collection of eight barbies and yes, I have named them all.  Call me weird, but again, it’s the boys fault!

Speaking of the boys – when I’m not looking, they are undressing my barbies and laughing hysterically.  Now that’s weird!
