Spring Cleaning

I'm a follower of Simple Mom Blog. You are correct..I not longer have little children, nor big children at home. But, guess you are always a Mom at heart. I love this gal, her thoughts, her wonderful ideas for organizing our lives  and living life simpler. So, today...she had this quote along with her Spring Cleaning week. Check it out on her site.

I have a ton of stuff around the house I have been meaning to ebay, garage sale, or take to tomorrow will be my day to work on this. Hope you have a good weekend as well!

Bit Overwhelmed

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed right now with so many projects that I want to get done around the house indoor and outdoor. We just finished our new privacy fence which encloses our courtyard aka our back yard.  This little space is in a bit of a mess right now since we had to move everything attached or near the old fence. Now time to get things back together. Not too hip on attaching a bunch of my junky stuff to this new fence. It is a work of art.  I am going to be very picky with what goes up on this fence.
I have had to start with a entirely new landscaping project for the area. New flowerbed, new shrubs, there is so much to do.
There are more projects inside the house....bathroom remodel, kitchern counters, painting, and floor for livng/dining space. I want to get this all done.I will keep you posted if I don't go crazy first!

Silver Bella

Someone needs to pinch me because I'll be going to 5th Annual Silver Bella 2010, along with my best friend. The Event of the Arts is the weekend of November 11th - 14th in Omaha, Nebraska. A few of the Event highlights: 9 nationally recognized instructors teaching 18 Workshops exclusive to Silver Bella, Friday night's Bella Market with juried and talented artisans from all over the country, fresh group workshop and presentation by Teresa McFayden, and a closing dinner featuring Guest Speaker Jenny Doh! The venue for this Event is The Embassy Suites, located in downtown historic Old Market District of Omaha, Nebraska. I've never been to Nebraska and I am sure it will be cold. But who cares? Its Silver Bella.  It was very tough to choose my five classes at enrollment.  Here are some of the fabulously creative women that will be teaching.
