Here's What's Been Going On Here


Well February has flown...along with
the snow!

Today's post is an update post of sorts.

Back on Valentine's I made little bubble
bags for my kids at school with tags that
said "You make my heart pop."

Mr. Ken was in heaven with his Valentine
gift. Who could resist nuts and Jelly Belly

I have been working on "mini" projects
around the house. One project was this
book shelf. It has held a lot of different
types of books since I have had it.
I decided that I only wanted it to hold
books that I plan to read not a mishmash
of books I had read and want to read.
I bagged up the ones I didn't want and
will be donating. 


This little green box got a transformation
from a greeting card box to a Pattern box.
I wanted to have my patterns in a different
place than in one of the drawers in my sewing table. It came with tabbed files that separated the cards by months. I gathered all my patterns, bagged up the ones I will donate, used some of
the files and separated my patterns. Now they
are centrally located and not crammed in a
drawer out of sight. Apparently Blogger
decided where this paragraph was going in
this post.

This project was a true labor of love because
it would not work at all the way I envisioned
it. After many trips to several stores and
returns, finally used some frames I had.
My Father-in-law's birthday is in December,
yes that far back...and I wanted to make him
a family collage with Mr. Ken and I and his
sibling's families.
After much stress I finally finished it and am
so happy with it!

Sunday I took the guy to a car show. A
hall that was the size of three football
fields filled with cars, trucks motorcycles
and car "stuff." Who could resist that?
It was a cold day but it was sunny and it
WASN'T snowing!

That's what we've been up to. What is up
with you?

~Keep on Dreaming~


  1. Looks like you've been busy.
    Isn't it nice to be getting things organized?!
    It feels so nice to have spring cleaning started and things ship~shape.
    You did a great job on your crafts and picture collage.


    1. Trying to be organized is an ongoing process for sure.
      I do enjoy crafting.

      Have a great weekend.

      M : )

  2. You've been busy! I love seeing the projects you finished. It motivates me to keep going with my decluttering goals. Especially your bookshelf--it looks so inviting to choose a new book from there. My husband would have loved that car show.

    1. The bookcase was such a small change but a much needed one.
      Glad I can be a motivator for you.
      Mr. Ken had fun for sure.

      Have a super weekend!

      M : )

  3. Nice collage and all, taking Mr Ken to car show. Lucky you---more snow and bitter cold weather on the way here yet again. You wear me out-you're so busy! 😉

  4. Thanks! We had a lot of fun at the car show. Yes, we have more snow and cold coming in Saturday into Sunday.

    We are a busy bunch, you are right about that.

    M : )


Thanks! Hope you enjoyed today's post. Come back soon.
