Hoping to create my life and home to the best of my perfectionistic (so not a word but I like it) style.


I need help.


Today has been a shitty day. I'm just tired of it all. I need to go to my bestie's house but I got 3 1/2 months to go. :*o(

Certain types of blogs.

I have been trying to find certain types of blogs. You know the ones, the crafty, shabby chic, beachy, cottage type. I'm at a loss, I've searched to my little hearts content and have found nothing that I want. Is there anyone out there that can point me in the right direction? Is there a webring or something like that that has a list of types of blogs? Just wondering and needing some ideas on how to decorate my house. 

My Craft Room

I am definitely working on my craft room today. I really need to get it done so that I can get the rest of the stuff built. Either me or hubby are going to put in a really nice L shaped desk and then put up more shelves. I would really love to have some of those JetMax cubes  from Michael's. That'll never happen. Hubby won't pay $30/cube. I'm sure we, he, or me could make something similar. I just want my room to be pretty, know what I mean? Here's a picture of what my room looks like now.

It's a mess, huh? Oh, see that blue dresser? I re-done that. It was horrible looking. I painted it and replaced the original dresser hardware with porcelain knobs and also put some wallies on it. It's not that bad.

Anyway, there's this scrapbooking forum I go to at Scrapbook.com that has a gallery of so many gorgeous rooms. Mine will never look like any of them cuz I don't have an eye for decorating at all. I'm hopeless. LOL

I need to get busy. TTFN! XOXOXO

A Purpose?

Ya know, I wish I had some purpose in life. I go on day to day doing random stuff and I feel as if it really doesn't matter. Sometimes I sit on my ass and do nothing. Unfortunately I am one of many that suffer from depression. I know I have things to do but I just can't bring myself to do anything. Like right now I'm feeling a little worthless. This is so hard to deal with but I've been dealing with it for years. So, life goes on. 
One bright thing that happened last night is my hubby bought my ticket to Connecticut so I can visit with my bestie. I'm sure I've talked about her. I've had best friends before but no one is like Paula. It's funny cuz she's a girly girl and I'm not. She has tried to make me a girly girl and has won to an extent. I'm now addicted to handbags (Dooney & Bourke is my fave) and shoes. I've become addicted to boots (love Steve Madden). This is all so funny to me because just 10 years ago, before I moved to the city (I lived in hicksville central), I knew nothing of this. I never carried a purse. The only thing I carried with me was my drivers license and some cash. The only time I carried anything that resembled a purse was when my boys were in diapers and I had to carry a diaper bag. The only shoe that I knew was a sneaker. I wore Reeboks. But anyway, I love her and I miss her sooooo much. I know I'm repeating myself just like Dr. Oz, for some reason he's a re-run. Who knows....

So, as I was saying, do I really have a purpose? I take care of my many animals. I don't know if they're the only ones that really need me. My hubby needs me every third day to get him up in the morning so he can go to work. He needs me to make his iced tea cuz he can't make it taste as good as I can. Yeah right, he just doesn't want to get up and get it himself. Then I have my 20 year old son. I bawled my eyes out when he turned 18. It's funny cuz I didn't do that when my oldest (he's 26) turned 18. My "baby" still hugs me and tells me he loves me. My oldest does that when he visits. I don't know why I'm so attached to him. Maybe it is because he's the "baby". Shit, I don't know. 

I gotta get dressed. TTFN!! XOXOXO

What should I get into today?

Today I think I might paint my scraproom. It's a very pretty pink. It's called Powder Pink by Glidden. 
Here's a pic of my room and also the shelving system my hubby made me. Hold on, gotta find it first.

Awesome, huh?? Yeah, I think so too. I think I'll keep him around for a little while longer :o). I think my next project for him is to be this Farm Bed that can be seen at Knock Off Wood.  Why don't you jump on over there and tell Ana how awesome she is. 

OK, Imma gonna go jump on the elliptical and watch some Dr. Oz (love him) then figure out what I'm gonna do. XOXOXO!!!

It's Sunday

I'm watching Jack Hanna's into the Wild and then my favorite Sunday morning show Sunday Morning. I love Charles Osgood. I don't know why, I just do. I'm sewing the bags today. I know I said I was doing it yesterday but hubby wanted me to go with him to get a new rotor for the truck. She (the truck) is 11 years old and is slowly dying but hubby just keeps taking her to the doctor to fix her up. Hey that's ok. She's paid for.TTFN XOXOXO

What I'm Getting Into Today

Today I'm going to be making cloth bags for the guys at the fire department who are on the s.w.a.t. team. These are for their gas masks. I've already made one and that's for hubby. 
Yesterday we went and looked at motorcycles. One in particular to be exact. Hubby just sold his Yamaha Roadstar a few days ago. Ever since he seen the Venture, he decided that is the bike he wants. He's also thinking about me cuz of the seat on the back. Here's a picture, it looks exactly like the one we're looking at.

Isn't it pretty? The picture doesn't do it justice. Anyway, if hubby gets approved for the loan we'll be picking it up and my sewing will be interrupted once again. Such is life, right? Also, if he gets approved he'll be buying my plane ticket to Connecticut. YAY!!!! The money I'll be making from the bags will be my spending money. I'll make about $30-$35 per bag. Cha Ching$$$$, right?? :o)

Ok, I gotsta go take a shower! TTFN!!! XOXOXOX 

Is There...

Such a style called Flea Market Shabby Chic? I'm gonna hafta find out. If there is, that's awesome. If there isn't, I'm gonna hafta create it.  I'm off to do some research.


This morning has been shitty. Well I really shouldn't say shitty maybe pissy. Is pissy less mad than shitty? Ok, I'm gonna say it is. I won't go into the details.

I really wanna know how I can turn this into 3 columns. I'm not sure if this is classic or the other. I went to a site and it said that I can find out on the dashboard in the upper left hand corner. UMMMM there's nothing there!!! I don't know if there is anyone reading this, but if there is, could you possibly tell me how to do it? 

Shabby Chic

I love it. IDK if hubby is going to like it or not but hey I do the decorating or at least try to. I've been trying to find a queen metal headboard cuz I really don't want to strip my headboard or sand it down and paint it white. I don't know where any flea markets are (I'm in central Ohio). I would love to go to Mt.Vernon and walk downtown and go to the many antique shops there but it's too cold right now :o).

This blog is kinda funny cuz it's not about decorating at all. I should just call it a bitch session and I get to blow off steam. My best friend, Paula, isn't here so I can't go to her. I am saving my cash so I can buy a plane ticket to Connecticut. I can't wait. I miss her so much. I need my girl/bitch session time and there's no one for me. Boo fucking hoo to me, right? Well shit, I don't make friends that easily. There is Melinda, we haven't hung out since our husbands quit working the same shift. They're firefighters at different stations. Anyway, she won't go anywhere unless he's working. Then when she calls me, she has called a total of 3 times in 6 or 7 months and one time was a mistake. She got the wrong Tammy. Go figure. But anyway, that is that. I need to go find something to do but I really don't want to.....
OMG I forgot something. Kate Goslin (or however you spell it). She needs to learn how to smile and not be so FAKE about it. It was announced last night that she was going to be on Dancing with the Stars. So over her, period.


I've been blog hopping. I'm wondering why am I being sent to sites that I can't read??? They're in foreign languages (yes, languages plural). I only know english. How is it that you can get only certain types of blogs? Say I want to see types of DIY stuff? How do I find it, other than using a search engine. Sometimes search engines suck. You search for the exact thing you want and maybe the first two sites are what you want and then everything below that is different. I know about searching for exact things in quotes. Usually nothing comes up but "try searching without quotes". 
Oh well, off I go on another blog hunt. Wish me luck. :o) 

You know when you decorate in that shabby chic style and then there's that perfect blue-green or aqua color? I see it all the time on those shabby sites but I can never find it. Or how bout that grayish bluish color that the designers on HGTV use? Shit, what's his name? Hold on, I'll go find it... David Bromstad (love, love, love him!!!). He always uses that perfect color. I'll find it. Whenever I go to Home Depot or Lowes I look. I know my hubby gets irritated with me. He always says "no point in looking if we haven't bought the house yet". I like to look and look and look.....

Ok, I just seen something hilarious! My cat, Katt, just used the litter box. OMG!! He balanced all four feet on the edge of the box and took a, well, a number two, too be polite about it. As soon as I can find my cord I'll put the pic up for you (yeah, I had to take a pic) :o)

Alrighty then...

I'm finally figuring out how to do this blog stuff. Soon enough I'll be able to put a picture with my header. We'll see how that goes. I'm still learning, so if by chance you come upon my blog by way of a search engine or what ever place you come from, don't be harsh ok? Thanks, I appreciate it. :o) 

I use to create websites when I was younger. I figured out how to do my backgrounds, links, images and so forth in html without having to copy and paste. So I should be able to do this with no problem...ummm yeah right. Did I mention I did it when I was younger. Yeah, I think I did. It's now a little less than 20 years later that I'm doing this. So we'll see how this goes.

I'm gonna go learn some more. Keep a watch out and see what I can do. :o)
