Around our House

Since I can't seem to get my thoughts to quiet enough to write about the past few months I will show you what is happening right now at my house.

Remember these?

Well, actually you don't remember them framed because I just picked them up from Hobby Lobby yesterday. They are the pictures my talented artist husband drew of our three wonderful children. He's good, huh? I certainly think so.

Well, when you walk in our front door now you are greeted by this arrangement.

I know the table scape needs some help but I am so pleased with the way it's turning out. I have been looking for something to go in that spot since we moved in almost 3 years ago. I finally found the little table at Hobby Lobby (I LOVE that place!!). And, I just am so excited to be greeted by my three kiddos every time I enter the house.

And that basket, you ask????
Another of my souvenirs from Uganda. It's a handmade raffia basket. Isn't it beautiful!!

I have been spending a lot of time in the sewing room. I have opened an "etsy" shop hoping to make a little cash to help out our 3 "starving college students". OUCH!!! It is pretty skimpy on items right now but I have several things in the works that are about ready to be added. I'm also hoping to include some items that are a combination of hubby's artwork and my sewing. We'll see how that works out. As I've said before on this blog, I'm also hoping to improve my camera skills so that my pictures will be more appealing.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hubby is amazing!!! I love those portraits -- I can only imagine how you must feel about them! Good luck with your etsy shop -- those college bills can be a killer!!!

Hi Donna,
I miss you. You should write me and tell me about what's been going on. I would even write you back. I'm gonna buy one of your quilted purses on your etsy shop.. when do you think you might post your other stuff?
