Trying Times!!!

Not Quite Home Sweet Home!!!

I have been away from crafting, blogging, working out, just about everything I love to do in my free time because.....We finally own our fist home!!! Yeah, the search is over. I posted a while back when we were in the midst of searching for our fist place....boy was it trying times. I am glad that it is finally over. We finally decided on a 1920's colonial home. Its cute but needs a lot ofwork. Thank you Mr. President for your wonderful incentive for new home buyers....

Me In the "Family room" doing some construction. Who ever invented wood paneling "sucks!"

Mr. Papitag in the master bedroom wrapping up the disgusting carpet that was in every inch of the house

The Family room before Demo..but after we ripped out the carpet, to our surprise the hardwood floors were in great conditition...they will be excellent after a nice sanding and a nice chesnut stain.

entrance & Living room before Demo but after we ripped up the hideous green carpeting...again nice hardwood floors.
The Dinning Room before demo but once again after we ripped up carpet and to our surprise there was horrible sticky lanolin tiles underneath the carpet....WHAT IN THE WORLD! LOL

As you can see, we have a long way to go and only 2.5 more weeks until we have to be out of our apartment. I will be sure to keep the pictures coming. Silly me, I forgot to take a pic of the outside of the house....

To be continued....

Happy Friday


Thank goodness today is almost seems like I am wishing my days away to get to the weekend. I have been crafting a bunch lately and trying to increase my inventory for my annual craft show at Transcongretional Church here in town. Last year was my first craft show and I did great...overall I had the highest profit (exciting) glowing with glee just thinking about this year!!! Below are a couple of items that I have added to my etsy shop...I haven't made any for the craft show yet...

All Items can be found in my etsy shop at:

The family has been doing a lot of stuff together lately even though Mr. Papitag doesn't get home until after 6:30 most nights. We have been taking loads of day trips to the parks and taking full advantage of the "free" things that our state has to offer. We are both addicted to physical activity so the natural parks have become a great past time of ours...and Gizzy has been loving chasing the Geese!
Hopefully this weekend I can convince Mr. Papitag to join me in my quest to recapturing my title of "thrift store queen." I will have to keep my fingers crossed because he typically lasts about a good 10 minutes in a thrift store and if you are like me 10 minutes just doesn't cut it when you are trying to find lovely treasures. I will be sure to bring my camera to try to capture all the great or not so great finds!!!

The Family

Until Next time!
