The Beginning

So...this is my very first blog post.  I have decided to join the countless others who have come before me in the world of DIY/home and design blogs!  I'm thrilled at the prospect of this new adventure and the things it will add to our life.  Primarily a swift kick in the pants that will keep me going and FINISHING the projects around here.  I am a stay at home mom of four kids.  They are 11, 7, 4 and 3.  My oldest two are boys and my youngest two are girls.  They (and my husband) are the loves of my life.  My hubby is an amazing man who has sacrificed the spoils that could have been made in life with his astounding intellect and hard core work ethic for a life of service to his fellow man, which still requires an astounding intellect and a hard core work ethic...but makes much less money....which means I have to get creative when it comes to financing my projects around here.  I hope to be able to share my creative ideas with all of those out there in blogland.   

 I have been an avid reader of many ....many blogs for the past three or so years.  It was like a light bulb went off for me when I read my very first blog post and realized there was this incredible community of women with amazing ideas out there for the taking. I began voraciously devouring as much as I could read and then putting those ideas to task in my home.  I've been in project mode ever since.  I have been wanting to start my own blog for the longest, and with the acquisition of a brand spankin new laptop....I have begun! 

 My hope is to show you some of my projects that I have completed over the past few years at first in addition to updates with what I am currently working on at the moment.  Let's start this new year off with a BANG!  or should I have said BLOG!  

this is the last family shot we've taken.
Disclaimer***  I am not taller than my husband....and I don't know why it seems like it in this picture. (ha!) and I've totally lost 35 pounds since this photo was taken (yesss!)...and my poor second son, bless his heart....he's still trying to figure out how to pose for a picture.  He's not crying....that's his attempt at "cheeeeese".  He gets it from his daddy!
