    Craft Room – Update #1 

    I love these craft room ideas. I dod not have a regular craft room at the moment, but when I did I used a rope shelf and the hanging closet item with little shelves for stufff like her. Great ideas. She is a new follower. If you love crafts and handmade check it out.

    Oh Yes, They Did

    While we haven’t actually started working on the bedroom/craft room makeover, we have started to accumulate various items for it.

    We picked up some paint swatches to choose a colour and have decided, I think the final choice, on what we are going to do on the floor.

    I am going to add some pictures of what we have accumulated, some of what we have planned and what we have decided on, I think, for the floor.

    While we can’t show you all of the ideas we like, (it would probably end up being a novel) you can check out our “Craft Room” Pinterest page and see all of the great ideas people have posted! https://www.pinterest.com/slm3567/craft-room/

    Any feedback is more than welcome!

    To start with, here are the paint swatches I picked up when I was in town at the Canadian Tire store.

    Let It Snow 

     Socks without mates (You know that problem?) were upcycled into little quirky snowmen. I wasn’t totally satisfied with how they turned out, but good enough to use in a couple spots I needed something added in bare spots with my own Christmas decorations.

    12 Days until Christmas.

    The story behind those Pumpkins 

    One of my latest posts was about my Halloween/Autumn painted pumpkins home decor.

    I Bring The “Beach” Inside 

    I thought I would join in this week with something I haven’t participated in for awhile, The Word Press Daily Prompt.  Besides, I love the theme of “Beach” ………

    Daily Prompt On Word Press

    It has been years since I went to any ocean beach. I had relatives when I was young that lived in the coolest town named Mukilteo.

    muk beach

    The place is close by Everette, Washington State. These were my Pacific Ocean Days.

    I lived In Florida- Pensacola for several years. Those were My “Atlantic Ocean” Days. Which ocean do you prefer? I actually like the wild Pacific, but then when you are a kid it just seems a tad more magical, so I may be biased because of age.

    Now I am so far away from those beaches in Missouri.

    There are some nice shorelines around other water bodies here, but I miss the ocean trips.

    So I came up with an idea to correct in my own home, the ocean:

    SUNP0136

    Wood and Rock Sailboat on beach wall art.

      Wonderful ideas here! The beach is a wonderful getaway and now you can enjoy it without even leaving home xx

      I love this. Absolutely love this. I’m an ocean person too. Have lived near to the Atlantic all my life (NYC and Miami). I’m in the process of moving to Jacksonville. I visited the Pacific a few years ago when celebrating my then 90 year old aunt’s birthday. It is wild and magical. But, I have an attachment to the Atlantic Ocean.

      I miss the beach, Nike. I never knew you lived in New York. My son was living in Stuart up the Atlantic coast for a couple years. Thanks for your comment.

      • NikeChillemi 10:22 am on May 24, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        Stuart is where the airport is, right? I know the general area. My brother lives in Duchess County. In fact, I’m going to visit him and his wife today.

        • blueribbonfair 7:28 pm on May 26, 2016 Permalink

          My son is here visiting, but I will ask him. He flies a lot so it is probably there. He says it is ritzy and does not care for it, so he is moving. He works and drives cruise ships in the summer in Alaska. After that, he may move back where we are or where is older brother and family are still in Washington.

        • blueribbonfair 8:20 pm on May 26, 2016 Permalink

          My son says they have an airport that the blue angels fly out of. He hasn’t ever flown out of there. Have a great weekend Nike.

        • NikeChillemi 3:10 am on August 12, 2016 Permalink

          I don’t know anything about the Blue Angels flying there, but it’s a modern airport.

      Lovely post. I was born in a city that lies just next to the sea which meant a lot of beautiful beaches. Where I live right now, there is not even one. I miss going to the beach. Your idea just helped me.. now I can bring the beach at home to me ^_^
      P.S. im an owl fan too.. ❤

      Beautiful art to bring the beach into your home, reminded me of a full wall mural a friend did for me setting sand, shells and some seaweed into it. Altho I no longer live there many others have had the joy of that refreshing mural!

    This one is rather strange . An old photo with colored dots painted over the faces. It kind of makes a heart.

    The Achievement(s) I need to Rejoice In 

    Ever since I first discovered Etsy many years back, I have wanted a shop to sell 2 things I love from: My handmade crafts and Vintage things. About a year ago, I finally achieved this. It has been slow going, baby step by baby step. Gathering and making things, taking photos (Cannot seem to get perfect in this aspect at all.) Listing, packaging, getting in mail. Keeping up with the shop as well as marketing and making contacts. This achievement will never end, but I have done it. I have sold a couple of things and I am up and running at a steady pace. 

    So for the Word Press Photo Challenge I am sharing some photos from my shop: 

    3D "Give Thanks" cute little home decor in frame.

    I hated to let this go. Candle making vintage kit. I loved the owl candles in it. It sold the first day.

    Pinterest does Pumpkins 

    As I mentioned over @http://ceenphotography.com/ earlier, pumpkins are my favorite thing that happen during the year.

    Today I have been pinning pumpkins off and on onto Pinterest. It is amazing how the designing and doings with pumpkins have changed over the years. Here are some creative, cool and different ones I found today on there. (Non of these first photos are mine.)

    PINK! is the new Orange!!!

    As you can see i am pumpkin happy. Now here are a couple of my own making and photos: 

    Little pumpkins my kids did a couple years back. They are so creative. Used whatever they wanted to make them their own. I was so sad when they rotted, though they lasted almost the whole year.

    Glue and glitter on top of it. I also wish I had sprayed a sealer since I have lost a lot of glitter. Hey I am learning as I go here-,Aren't you or were you born perfect? with kids , who needs a tornado? I may update this with more glitter and glue and sealer.

    Beautiful apple gourds. When I took the photo it had lost a lot of it’s glitter. It was supposed to harden and dry so I could keep it. maybe Missouri is too wet because it molded after about a year also.

    Yarn Pumpkins

    I love my yarn pumpkins. I made a white one to go with these this year.

    listia, ebay home cup and blog fall 003

    My first go at a “pop up” card. Of course I could not resist trying this when I saw it was for a pumpkin.

    Check out my pinterest to see what I pinned: http://www.pinterest.com/luvtapin/

    My Autumn Holiday board: http://www.pinterest.com/luvtapin/holiday-autumn/

    ^Lots of help for the Fall gatherings for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fun and Food.

    I am working on having a little Halloween get together. I also am making a paper mache pumpkin. I really want to try my hand at another pop out pumpkin card since the one I did ,  I had to use paper that was not what worked as well as the direction had you use. I got better paper now. I also did some other things  I want to share here, so hopefully I can post more fun stuff soon. (Look for these coming posts.)

    P.S. I also see some other blogs with some cute pumpkin ideas I want to skip over and visit. Thanks for reading and looking .

        Thanks. I saw some more ideas yesterday like making rooms in a pumpkin with small doll house furniture. There are also ways to preserve them, ( I have not tried that myself.) to keep them from molding. I could have used that with mine that molded, but never knew this prior.
