Spring Has Sprung and It's Nearly Time for the House Closing

Hello All, or few these days....

Since I have not had time to keep up with my blog, my blogging buddies are waning. But I wanted to post in here about our new adventure of selling our house and moving to moms house and fixing it up. IT is going to be late getting done and I am starting to get worried where we will stay. This house closes on the 28th, unless anything comes up this week. I pray not!
My father in law was hit in the head with a hammer and then fell off a ladder the very same day and ended up in the emergency room and stayed in the hospital for 4 days with an concussion. He had recently had a brain tumor removed about 6 months ago. He is not allowed to do a lot of things so everything got slowed down and he eventually hired another worker to cover himself.
This is our house for about two more weeks and then hopefully we can work around the mess of moms house redo. I think a lot will get done this week, but we will need at least one working bathroom before we can move into it.
It's one day at a time Sweet Jesus...this is where I get stressed out and I am trying not to stress out.
I still have a lot of packing to do things I saved for the last days before moving because we still needed to cook and enjoy the comforts of our home. Behind those big closed garage doors though is a  packed pile of boxes.

Okay changing the subject I just found out about this really cool place called Bountiful Baskets Co-Op
I know several friend on Facebook who are doing this. Check it out!
Bountiful Baskets is a not-for-profit food co-op for families that want to have more fresh produce for less money.

I am probably going to have to shut down all three of my shops for 2 weeks. I hate doing it, but I am over my head. I will do it at the last moment though.

Tomorrow we will be eating the traditional Saint Patrick's Day meal and something green, my sugar cookie recipes, how about you? will you be eating anything green or wearing green?


Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Have a  great Sunday! Blessings ~Kat

I do hope my moms house gets remodeled in time. I did call my FIL to tell him, so hopefully things can get done by the 28th of March! this is when we have to be out.



I hope you are having a great week!

Happy Saturday the Fun Begins!

Today is the day I go to moms to get her things she wants to keep out of the house. She will be moving in with us while her house is remodeled. My Pop starts the work on Wednesday. Our for sale sign goes up on Tuesday morning. That is the photo I will probably post next. 
It will take Pop about 2 weeks to get my moms house done. After he is done we will all move into her house. Steve and and I will pack our house up a little at a time each day and bring the most essential things to my moms house after it is remodeled. 
I chose Shaker Cabinets for the kitchen in off white. My moms house is 2000 square feet smaller then the house we live in with way less cabinets for storage. My Pop is taking care of that problem in the kitchen and throughout the house but Steve is going to build them in the garage like we have at our house here, we keep large kitchen things and holiday stuff in the cabinets. It's going to be hard to give up all this space, but it's for the best. This neighborhood has never been a good fit for us. We love it here the city the atmoshere and everything about this area, we just don't love the way our house is situated. When we bought this house it was brand new, we only had a map to look at, that is never a good idea if you cannot have a true visual view of what things will look like. 
In any event my mom needs us and her house is situated perfectly, it just needs everything done to it!
It will be like a brand new house. Stay tuned I will have photos to share.
The next four days Steve and I will be going through moms house.

Here is a few things I made this week...earrings to go with my floral necklaces and a beautiful Fairy Sun catcher. I love Fairies.







I won't be able to get these posted to my Etsy or Artfire Shops until Wednesday if my body does not hurt to bad from working so hard. 

These earrings go with the necklaces I made and are posted in the previous blog post. although I do show the matching earrings to one of the necklaces above with the same necklace from the last post. I still need to make a blue necklace and Rose Gold necklace.

Have a wonderful Saturday! ~Kat
