Bulk quantity orders

I have a custom order to make a bulk quantity of these for someone. I will discount when items are ordered in bulk. What can I custom make for you? :)

The latest projects and such

Here is how my desk turned out.  It was painted black and I painted red over it and distressed it. Then finished it off with a dark glaze that I wiped off.  I'm really happy with it!

While my parents were visiting, my dad and husband tiled the top area of the shower stall in the master bathroom.  The water has been causing paint and drywall to come off, so we figured tile was the way to go.  I just need to post an "after" picture yet. :)  Maybe after we get a new shower curtain I will do that.

My mom brought me a vintage print that belonged to my grandma Evelyn Mae.  I am going to paint the frame a different color, perhaps the teal blue that I painted the kitchen desk?

I finally set up the Jenny Lind crib in the girls room.  Callie still sleeps with me at night, but she is doing well in her crib for naps during the day.  And I just love the spindles!!  It looks so vintage, almost like an antique crib would look.  The cute crib bedding came from Target three years ago when Elise was born.  I still love it!

A bittersweet visit

My parents were just here visiting with us a couple weeks ago.  They came while my husband was out of town for work, and stayed long enough to spend time with him when he got back home as well.  We were able to celebrate Elise's birthday with them (and Ronnie's too).  Those were the sweet parts of the visit.  The bitter part was learning that my mom has Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  We found out on Elise's birthday.  The doctor wanted to meet with them in person, but when he found out they were out of state, he told them over the phone.  Talk about a huge blow to the stomach.  The reality of it all did not really sink in for me, until the morning they left to go back home to Michigan.  I hugged my mom and started crying, and I didn't want to let go of her.  It is going to be very hard for me emotionally to go through this living 600 miles away from them.  But I know God has a plan in all of this, and I will lean on Him through this journey.  I would appreciate your prayers for my mom too, its a whole new way of life for my parents right now.  Lots of changes and adjustments and things she will need to be cautious of in order to keep herself healthy and well during her treatments.  She starts chemo this week.  Here are some photos from our visit together a couple weeks ago.
