Chore Sticks

Are you as busy as I am? I love this time of year...we usually head up to our cabin after Christmas to snowmobile for the week. But since there is no snow this year it's been postponed. Instead i've been busy enjoying my few days off and getting things organized for the New Year. I always clean out and spring clean this time of year. I've been cleaning out closets, toys and just reorganizing anything in sight. I've also been steam cleaning! Have you ever done that? Just a warning it's totally addicting! I love seeing the grim spray away.

For awhile now i've been wanting to make a chore chart/system for my boys. I've studied it for months on several blogs....and as I did I found one thing in common. Chore sticks. All the Mom's said it was tried and tested and worked the very best. That is was practical, doable and cheap to make. So I took their advice and came up with my own.

 The supplies...cute tin (I think I got it at the dollar store a long time ago) some vinyl, craft sticks and ribbon.
See the 5, 10, and 15... that is the amount of time each chore takes. 

I have to say it's been two days and my kids love it. It's worked great in switching up what they do. I find I always assigned the same thing to the same child because I knew they could it.

My New Craft Table

I've been wanting a new craft for a long time. I've looked all over for one and have never been able to find just what I wanted. It either wasn't the right height or size, no storage, out my budget, or built poorly. My sweetheart has known of my dilemma and so we started scheming together my perfect craft table. The project got hurried along about a month ago when he brought home the top from his job site. They were tearing out several lanes at a bowling alley. Under the lanes they have a very thick layer of wood. It worked perfect for this! I couldn't be more happy with the results. It's the perfect's large enough for two people have plenty of room to work and the storage is perfect for my needs.

Here's a close up of the finish. We painted it black with Martha Stewarts Francesca black. Then sanded and applied Jacobean stain by mini wax. Topped it off with a few layers of clear satin sealer. Now I just need to find the right bar stools to go with it! 

If your interested in having a craft table built for you..Ry said he is taking orders! 

~Merry Christmas~

Antique Window

One of my customers is redoing a bedroom in her house for her Mom. She comes and stays with her often and she wanted to give her her own space. The room is done very country/victorian and she had this old window. We put a sweet saying about Grandmas on it. I wish I could say that I had a load of old windows and could sell this to you. Unfortunately I don't...put if you know of any will you let me know?

I hope this gives you ideas for decor in your home or a sweet gift to someone special.
