Penguin Paralysis.

Penguin Paralysis.

It kind of sounds like an awareness campaign, doesn’t it?  But it isn’t the penguins who are paralyzed, it’s me!  Paralyzed by a penguin.  A stuffed penguin, at that.  Ready to see the culprit?  Here he is…or she?  I’ll have to ask my daughter… lt’s an innocent-enough looking penguin, right?  I’ve been wanting to show … Continue reading

A dilemma…

I’m in a quandary.  I really want to make a market for my children; we already have a shopping cart, cash register, play food, and many boxes and cans I’ve saved after cooking dinner!  I was going to find an inexpensive three-shelf bookcase, and then also set up a countertop consisting of two small closetmaid … Continue reading

Actually, it only cost seven dollars and change!  I love the Pottery Barn Kid/Teen dotted knobs, and wanted to use them, but they didn’t happen to fit into the budget.  So, I went to Lowe’s, found round wooden unpainted knobs, fixed them up, changed them out with the plain boring white knobs that were on … Continue reading

The finally (maybe?) finished tree!

The tree is finished!  Maybe?  I’m not quite sure yet.  But here it is.  I was inspired by some awesome decals, but, honestly, they just weren’t in the budget!  So I thought, hey, I could paint that!  [I also thought, hey, I’ll have this finished by May!  This IS May, isn’t it?!]  This is my … Continue reading

Name and Pin Board Sun

I finished a project!  This was already on the wall, but put up with sticky-tak, causing most of the letters to go askew and one to fall off completely – very alarming in the middle of the night :).  It took me about 30 minutes to replace the letters and then use Command strips to hang them … Continue reading
