Craftiness and other news

We had several big events over the past few months.

2 Birthdays and a wedding in the family.


We got to celebrate Jalen’s birthday over labor day at a water park in Cincinnati. It was HOT and a perfect time to be in the water. The rest of the weekend we spent at Ikea(heart heart) and hanging out.

Where J thought he should be the door greeter and tour guide for his brother in law. And anyone else who would listen….That man is crazy!
Allen seemed quite impressed and decided to stay.
I think I love this kitchen. What do you say? Think my new kitchen should be black or will that date too quickly?
This girl hit sweet 16 last week.
Time you are stealing away too quickly!!!
And my oldest brother’s son got married in the past couple of weeks…
New happenings for my family. First nephew to say I do.
This is my dad, brother and his son.
And we love his pick for a bride. She is the sweetest!
So we celebrated again this weekend with a reception for people who couldn’t make it to the out of state wedding.

Several months back I got this brainy idea to make them a coffee table with an old window that would lift up so it would be similar to a shadow box.
When we sold the house and started packing I kind of gave up the idea thinking maybe I’ll just give them a pretty plate.
But….
Yesterday when I woke up at 4 with J getting out of bed I said…
“Hey I printed out an idea of how that table could look..it’s down on your desk”.
And do you know what that fantabulous guy did?
He went out and built that table!
With stuff from his shop that we didn’t want to move 🙂

The only problem was… We liked it so much we thought maybe a pretty plate would still be an okay gift 🙂
I printed out some black and whites from the wedding and put them on display. But they can put whatever they want in there.
Just one more way to reuse old windows.

In other news…
We are starting the great move.
Today and the next 2 weeks.
I will be glad when these weeks are done.
This next weekend we will be having a Gigantic moving sale. If you know where we live come take a looksee! Tables, chairs, hutches, all kinds of household items. Out grown clothes and toys. I think Jason may have some things on there for men too!
You won’t want to miss it! 🙂 🙂 🙂
O happy day!

  1. I am not sure about having an all black kitchen. Today I am living in an all white (cream) kitchen that was sooooo in a number of years ago before we moved here. I am now very tired of cleaning stains off the white countertop among other things. Black would have it going for you in that these problems at least would not apply still sometimes it’s great to leave room for all the color God created…just saying!

  2. We entertained the tho’t of having whitewashed cabinets put into our new kitchen in this old house when we moved in 15 years ago. We’re glad now that we didn’t because people would know exactly what time period it was put in. The black looks nice if you don’t care about the “dating”. Love my hickory cabinets! 🙂

  3. Oh, yes, I forgot…..I’m going to make sure that Jonathan & Dave see a picture of the table that J made…..with all the barn wood around here and old windows in storage….just sayin’! 🙂

  4. Thanks for your input! I keep going between the Cherry mission(like I have had for the past 10 years) or black. I LOVE the cream whitewashed look but I too think the lighter would be harder to keep clean.
