About Me

I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

CHAOS - or what they don't tell you on DIY shows and a sneak peek!

Well our Kitchen cabinet makeover is drawing near to an end! (yeah!!!) I am thinking maybe 2-3 more nights -whew!! But this project is not our first time down this road but, in between projects you forget the following:

1. It probably will take longer than you originally estimate

2. It is wonderful if you have a date where you are having company over in the near future -wonderful motivator when you get to the half way point in a project.

3. All the stuff that is where you want to work has to go SOMEWHERE!!! (Most likely in your dining room, under chairs in the living room etc..) So the moral of this story is while you or your sweet wonderful hubby are working on a project your home might be best described (borrowing the terminology here from the FLY lady) as C.H.A.O.S. - can't have anyone over syndrome!!!

So it is really best to start a project with all these things in mind!! and if you forget just slap your forehead (like on a V-8 commercial and go "Oh yeah!" and take a deep breath it will all be ok).

Well here is a little "Sneak Peek" :

I am so excited!! I love this new color! It really is a little darker than it appears close up with the flash! I can not wait until the doors are done! We have done the cabinets themselves, as well as all the shelves. It took approx 4 days thus far!

I will hopefully be posting pictures of the completed project this Thurs or Friday!! Fun! Fun! Fun!


  1. Love a good family visit to get me motivated around the house! Your cabinets are looking great...can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. I love projects... can't wait to see the finish project!

  3. Wow. Your cabinets look incredible. It will all be worth it when you are finished!
