Hello, Blog Readers!

Life is busy, busy in the Moore household these days....but I set aside some time today to blog.  How's everyone doing?

My oldest started SIXTH GRADE (!!!!) a few weeks ago, and my youngest started THIRD.  Time is going so quickly. *sniff  They both are doing GREAT in school so far, so I am very thankful for that.

As I posted previously, I resigned from teaching preschool this year.  Preschool just started, and it's weird seeing everyone's first day of preschool pics on Facebook and realizing that I'm not there...but it's good.  I know I made the right decision, and I am enjoying being able to spend my time doing things that I really want to do.  I'm super swamped with craft projects for customers and projects for myself as well.  Hubby and I recently decided (ok..I decided) to redo our bedroom, and it's been a very slow work-in-progress.  I am LOVING the results, though! I hope to share pics soon.

I'm still scrapbooking every now and then, too.  I've been focusing on older photos and getting them put away into albums.  The best way I've found to do this is through pocket pages!  I have gotten SO MANY photos scrapped this way lately, and it has been a huge time save for me!  I'll share a few of my pocket pages with you:

As you can see, I've got everything from old Christmas photos to our Disney World trip, old baby pics, older sports photos, Chicago trip pics, and more.  Pocket pages are so easy and practical for me!  I just mix them in with my traditional layouts, and I'm getting lots of photos scrapped that way. Can't beat that!

Well...back to housework and craft projects. Drop me a comment and let me know how you're doing! I'd love to hear from you. ;)

DIY Reclaimed Wood Art

Hey y'all!

Long time, no blog! ;)

What's been going on in your world? Mine's been crazy busy.  My sister and I have a Facebook page where we sell our handmade items, and that has been a great extra income (but a LOT of work!) for us both.  I've also been working on redoing our master bedroom, which has been a slow-going process.

I painted the walls "Revere Pewter" by Benjamin Moore after seeing rooms in that color pinned so many times on Pinterest. I LOVE the color...so nice and neutral, but really pretty and clean looking.  We've just bought a few things here and there as we could to revamp our space it make it more "us."  I'm going with a gray/teal/white color scheme, and so far, it's coming together very nicely.  But like I said....SLOW-going process.

What did we ever do before Pinterest? Seriously...love it.  I've pinned so many craft ideas and rooms I like on there, and that's where I'm getting all my inspiration for our bedroom redo.  Today, I finished up and hung an art piece that the hubby and I made. 

Here was my inspiration:

And here's my version:

Mine isn't near as distressed as the inspiration piece because I wanted a cleaner look...but I'm super happy with how it turned out!  My grandpa had some old torn-down fence panels that he gave me to make this with. It looks great hanging on my freshly painted wall! :)

More updates at a later time...laundry is calling! Thanks for stopping by.
