Busy, Busy, Busy

I've been busy today!! I love being able to make things "pretty"! I have a friend that asked me to personalize sand buckets and cups for a birthday party and I went "Vinyl" happy!
Here's a few pictures:

For the buckets and cups, I used the "Rustler" font. 
I actually made bucket and shovel for every cup! Just didn't take all the pictures!
Then I decided to decorate a cupcake carrier and my cooler!
                                      The cupcake carrier got the cute "tinas baby shower" font!
And my favorite for the day got the "Janda Happy Day" font used on it! I absolutely love the way this turned out!
That's it for today!

I love Pinterest!

II am in love with the things that I find on Pinterest to fix the things with my house that need to be! Today I found where I can fix the spot on my antique table that was messed up! I mixed 3/4 cup of canola oil with 1/4 cup of vinegar and rubbed it on the spot that needed it and this was my result...
It actually worked!!!! I can't believe it! I am so happy that my table is beautiful again!

I'm trying!

In an attempt to be happy in my home, I am cleaning out and redecorating!!! I really want to lighten up my color palette. All our colors are dark....and depressing. I am also VERY frugal, I will NOT buy anything new  that I can make out of something else! With that, I made a "new" shower curtain out of a flat, twin sheet and pillowcases!
I am in Love with it!! I paid $2 for the sheet and 79cents for the pillowcase! I had some gray/white seersucker that matched perfectly with the bright yellow! It has already changed the look of the bathroom. I still need to update the wall art and rugs but this is most definately a step in the right direction!

Trying to be content in a "me, me,me" world!

These days nothing is good enough, everyone "deserves" more. This is just crazy! Your life is what you make of it! I'm starting to realize this!
I am always trying to find things to make tasks easier, nicer, prettier...But does that stuff really matter...
I have been struggling with being discontent in my home. I see all these amazing ideas and pictures of other's homes on Pinterest and Facebook. I shouldn't live my life in envy of what they have. We live in a 950 sq ft home, it has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. There are only three of us here, so why do we think we need a bigger house with more rooms, WE DON"T!!! I just to be content with what I have. I need to be thankful that we own a home, not just a home, but a HAPPY, HEALTHY family in that home! I need to worry less about what is wrong with it and focus on what I can to with it to make me happy with it again! In the world right now, everything is made out to be disposable, when you are fed up or "done" with it, move on. It doesn't work that way. We need to make the best of everyday, we are never guaranteed tomorrow and need to not spend everyday worrying about tomorrow!
