What a long week!

Well I really have no words of wisdom today! I am sick and I am heading up to the trailer for the long weekend! I sure hope I feel better soon! I am busy packing and getting ready today but thought I would share a couple of things. I have been working on trying to update my Etsy Shop. I have so many ideas of things I want to make but unfortunately my work is interferring in me crafting!!! I am hoping to get a bunch of stuff on there in a couple of weeks.

These are little crohet hook keychains. They are only about 3 inches long and I made a cute little ball of wool out of shrink-it to jazz it up a bit!
With all the homemade journals out there, I thought how cute would it be to have a homemade shopping list book?
Well I hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope the weather is fabulous!!
Until next time xxooDebbie

My baby is 15!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my goodness where has the time gone? My baby turned 15 on Saturday and we celebrated at the trailer! I can't believe he is 15 and in Grade 9. Happy Birthday Cody!!!! I love you!

Have I mentioned I love markers/pencil crayons before?? hehehe....

So I am still in the midst of cleaning my office/craft room up...I bought some containers for organizing and I am so glad everything is in one place for these. Now maybe I can get the creative juices flowing again. I am hoping to have everything cleaned up before the weekend so I can maybe get one wall painted....I will update the before and after pics when I am finished.

So update on the trailer situation....we brought a measuring tape up with us and a pad of paper and pencil and took all the measurements we needed. We are off this week to pick up some supplies and hopefully get started on the "pimp my trailer" project!
OMG!! I got my craft swap stuff today!!!! WOW!!! There are a lot of talented people out there....I love everything...everyone did a fabulous job! I would post pics but just in case somebody hasn't got theirs yet I don't want to ruin the surprise!!! I would definitely join in another swap...♥
Well I hope everyone had a great weekend and here's to a fabulous week ahead!!!
Until next time xxoo Debbie

My husband has suddenly developed a bad case of obsessive compulsive disorder! He is driving me NUTS!!! He is normally a laid back, go with the flow kinda guy. I made the mistake a month or so ago of saying, "we should buy a trailer". Biggest mistake...I need to learn to keep my mouth shut...LOL....
We bought this trailer 1.5 years ago. We basically bought it because it was soooooo cheap and we wanted to get into the campground (as they have a waiting list to get in). It was certainly a fixer upper..well the add a room at the front needed to be redone on the inside which we did. When you walk in the door and to your right, that is our little kitchen with a woodstove, table and chairs...the big area of the add a room is the livingroom with a pullout couch that we sleep on. There is a trailer behind the add a room (I think 28 feet?)...well that is where the boys sleep, washroom, and tiny kitchen with about 6 inches of countertop space. So I had one of my brilliant ideas, we should tear everything down and buy a used trailer. We have a bit of money put hard would it be????????
Well my husband is now obsessed....he is on the computer all night long, he is on his ipod touch the minute he walks in the door, he is laying in bed at night looking on kijiji for used trailers, he has phoned every dealer from here to there in search of trailers. We have found lots, but none in our price range.
The weekend before mother's day, he had found the "one" is only in Kingston he said? (which is 2 hours away)...I had been trying to put him off and finally I caved...we left at 1:30 in the afternoon and didn't get home until after 9:00!!!! OMG!!! it was in the middle of nowhere...and a piece of junk! We have been to tons of dealers and they are more than happy to sell you a new one with payments until I retire!!! I have a new idea????.........
I was on Attic 24 the other night and she had a few pictures of some trailers....I showed my husband and said, why don't we pimp out our trailer???
This is our little Tincan Cottage....It is actually pretty does have a lot of potential!
How cute are these pics? I think if we gut the whole inside of our trailer and pimp it would look amazing....and a whole lot cheaper than buying another trailer?

I think I have my husband convinced as he said we have to bring up the measuring tape and a pad of paper and make a list of everything we need to buy!
I thought we were on the same page but last night as we were watching Biggest Loser, I said, "oh what are you looking at on your ipod"?, Trailers he said?????LMAO!!!
Well let's hope we get everything we need and start renovating on the long weekend and then it will be too late to turn back!!! Wish me luck!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far!
Until next time xxoo Debbie

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day! I had a wonderful day! First off, does anybody know how to load pictures on their blog in the order you want as opposed to whatever order they show up at??? this blog post is a little messed up...I can't figure out how to rearrange my photos....
We ended up going to Mongolian Grill for lupper...(lunch/supper 3:00ish). If you have never been, it is make your own stirfry! You put everything you want in a bowl and hand it to the cook and you watch them cook it...
After you get all your goodies in your bowl, you hand it to the cooks and stand around this bar and watch them cook the meal you have prepared!
Sorry the pictures are out of order here...hehehehe...YAH...HAPPY MAIL!!!! I was so excited yesterday. I didn't get anything in March for my happy mail, so I was so happy. The picture isn't that great but look at all my goodies! How cute are those watermelon pot holders? There is a bag of M&M's at the back that are almost gone....some cool little alphabet stamps and I got my first ATC!!!! Those markers are amazing...they have glitter in them so your words are sparkly!! Thanks so much Gina!!!!!

Okay back to Mother's Day....LOL!!! How great is it that I have my whole family with me on Mother's Day!!!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far!! I am heading to the trailer this weekend!!! whoot whoot!!!
Until next time xxooDebbie

Is it Friday yet???

This week is dragging totally feels like Friday to me? I have been so busy these last couple of weeks, you would think that time would fly, but quite the opposite! I have been a bad blogger. I sit down at night to relax and bring out my laptop and go blog hopping. I see some people actually blog everyday!!!! How is this possible? As I like to keep my blog on a more personal level, if I blogged everyday I think most people would fall asleep at their computers with the ins and outs of my boring life? Well just to update you, our anniversary was wonderful...we spent the whole day together, just the two of us!!! Dinner was fabulous, we ate at a little place called Big Daddy's in the voodoo lounge...big comfy chairs with a fireplace...(very romantic and intimate). Mamma Mia was really good! It was a great day!!

I found this while blog hopping and of course I forgot to get the source where it came from? Anyway, I LOVE it!!! If I ever see it anywhere, I definitely have to get it and hang it on my wall!!
So I took yesterday off work (my boss rocks!! hehehe)..I painted this one wall in my little dungeon I like to call my office/craft room about 2 years ago! Yesteday I finally glued on my picket fence..I love it!!! (random posts-being a procrastinator....hmmm I guess so?) Well since quitting my job 3.5 years ago and working from home, my house has never been would think being home everyday I would get a chance to clean and tidy up...NO...I seem to be stuck at my computer and don't have time for anything!! So hence the day off work yesterday to try and make sense of my room...I seriously don't know how I work in these conditions.
I have realized that my daughter's old bedroom is not big enough for all my craft stuff and with the bed I put in there, I have come to the conclusion that I will leave it as a "spare bedroom", something I haven't had for almost 25 years! Which leaves me with my dungeon craft room. I started cleaning yesterday and didn't realize how big a job it was!!! I already have 2 garbage bags full!!! I went and bought some paint yesterday to finish the other walls (of course now I can't match up the blue because I painted over 2 years ago) so I bought a green to match. I bought some storage stuff and hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have it finished and post some pics for you as I am way too embarassed to post before pictures!! LOL!!! Maybe with the paint and some organization, I can get inspired to do more crafts!!?? We will see! Of course, I will probably be too exhausted to do anything by the time I am finished this big job!!!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
Until next time xxooDebbie
