rough stuff

Ya know that guest bathroom remodel that I mentioned a few days ago?  Well, I thought I'd share a little tidbit of the project with you. 
For six LONG years, I lived with this ugly pink ceramic tile...barf-o-rama!


No, it wasn't smashed into a gazillion pieces for six years.  But, it should have been!  This ugly pink tile (paired up with an even uglier black tile, picture to follow soon) made for one of the worlds worst looking bathrooms. 

It seems like there was always something that came up that delayed getting this bathroom remodeled.  For one, the master bathroom only has a stand-up shower.  So, with having small kids, a tub was important.  Now that Bryar has become a toddler, she's a lover of showers!  So, we decided that it was time to dig in and get it done!

All of us shared our master bathroom for about a month while this project was underway.  I can't tell you how many funny stories we have due to that bit of shared time - LOL!  Nevertheless, it is now complete.  Well, almost.  It lacks a few pictures being hung.

Anyway, here's a shot of the new bathroom floor that I am totally geeky over.  Wood?  Nope, it's tile.  Isn't it the coolest!!!!  See, I'm geeky.

I'll post more pictures soon.  But, this is my favorite part of the bathroom.  I know, it's just a floor. 
But, six years...six years and I finally have a new floor.  Happy dance!!!!

going higher

There are special moments in life where words are hard to find, emotions are flooded and your heart leaps within you. 

To my dearest Roxanne, I hope you reach high, win BIG and leave footprints behind you that leave your mark.

Kidbodies is having a HUGE summer sale.  Wowsers, the prices are great and the clothing is super-duper cute!

There were two little girls having a blast playing in the yard this week.  You'll have to excuse us but we're just country folks.  We don't have any close neighbors, it's hot, their little and I'd rather not worry with putting them in a bathing suit.  So, I just let them have fun in their undies.

I bought a HUGE beach ball sprinkler and the girls loved it.  They splashed around, drank giant gulps of water straight from the sprayer and had a blast trying to get me wet.  I grabbed the camera and took a few shots of them (and some nearby flowers) with my new lens.  It takes a tight picture with a very short depth of field.  Here's a few photos that I took of our wet day!

Let's just say it's been kind of like a circus around here!  School is out and the summer fun is in full swing.  Out of town trips, VBS, summer camp, a bathroom remodel (more about it later).  There is just something about the kids being at home, hearing their little giggles, funny made up stories and watching them learn how to be sisters, share, love and build a relationship between the two of them that will forever grow with them.

Those little cuties up there decided to retire from our circus and they took a trip to Utah where they would be loved and admired by my friend Kris in her new shop, My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe!  I used this pattern that Kris now carries in her shop (online ordering will be available soon). 

I hope that each one of you are enjoying your summer and that you will be inspired to get creative.  Here's to happy crafting!

fresh squeezed

There is so much to love about these precious photos taken by Jessica Myers. This adorable little girl, Khloee, is the daughter of a dear friend of mine. For her 1st birthday I made her this sweet lemon summer knot dress and headband. This lemon fabric has been a favorite of mine for years. Fresh squeezed hugs are in order for this sweet baby girl!
