CJ's First Ornament for 2009

I am finally posting my first ornament finish for 2009. This is a freebie from Gazette94. I stitched it on a scrap of Gold 14ct Aida using Carrie's Creation Floss called "Holly Days". Not sure how it will finally end up but the stitching is done. I have already started a second ornament from Gazette94 for February.

See ya!!

Antiques, Old Toys, and Teddy Bears!

Another child's room that I love! The bead board goes great with the "old toys" Theme! I love the Rocking Horse! I love Home shows, especially Utah Parade of Homes! It's always a fun day filled with a lot of joy and inspiration!

A Home Where You Can Have A Ball!

A Basketball court! Wow! Can you imagine? "Mom, I'm going downstairs to play Basketball!" This house was pretty cool! From the upstairs level you could watch your kids play basketball! What joy for a Basketball lover, especially in the winter! I took a lot of these pictures when we were getting ready to build, these homes were all so inspiring and so beautiful!

Laundry Room, Loads Of Fun!

I love this Laundry Room, my laundry room is more like the quote below!
" Cleaning the house while the kids are still growing is like shoveling snow while it is still snowing!"
My laundry room is located by my kitchen where life happens, everything ends up in the Laundry Room! If the kids don't know what to do with it, just throw it in the Laundry Room!
