I have a crazy laundry list of things I want to get done. I need to break down that list into 3: Need to get done, want to get done, and really Joscelyn you don't have to cram everything into 1 week, it's called a vacation.
One of the projects that really needs to get done is our bedroom. The bedroom has always been the bane of my cleaning/organization/decorating existence. It never seems to get done, or partially so but never 100% done.
So I'm redoing it, it started a few weeks ago with the delivery of these:
16 cubbies with totes. I have 10, 8 of those are fabric and my husband gets 6. My awesome in-laws found these for me at costco. love them!
which no longer looked like this, it had evolved, and added an armoire.
The next project is to paint these night stands I found at Building Resources for a steal. They're solid wood,and actually filing cabinets but they match!
But oh the inspiration part of the post. The sewing projects for my bedroom involve these fabrics and this pattern
The blue and white fabric with the brown hearts is for curtains, I found it at the dollar a yard store. the rest of the fabric is from a kit using Fig Tree Quilts latest fabric California Girl. I love it, love love love.
The curtains are also on the need to get done this week list. The quilt will have a while yet, I have 3 baby quilts to finish and a quilt to make to raffle off to raise money for Ecuador

Anything inspiring you lately? I was at the shoe store a couple of days ago and I was reminded why its dangerous for me to go there in spring and summer,oh the cuteness! all the sandals and flats and espadrilles and wedges....
I have about 4 half written posts about various things I've been working on. Including but not limited to: another baby quilt, raising money for Ecuador,and redoing my bedroom.
That's just the fun stuff.
The last couple of weeks I've been cleaning and organizing. I didn't exactly have a set goal of Spring Cleaning, it's just kind of worked out that way. I really need to take a picture of the new shelving units I have in my bedroom for (mostly) fabric storage. They're massive, and beautiful.(they're taller than me, not that that's hard to do, but still)
Alas, that means taking picture, and you know actually getting them off the camera. That always seems to be the hard part.
For now know I have not fallen of the face of the planet, I do still enjoy blogging, life just keeps getting in the way.If only I didn't have to work. I just need to somehow magically become independently wealthy.
for now that's not the case and I really should get to bed so I can get up for said work tomorrow.
I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but for the first 3-4 years of my marriage I hated to cook. hated. Box mac n cheese (maybe with sausage), pasta, and the occasional chicken and dumplings were about the only things I cooked. If you could call it that. needless to say we ate out alot.
Well the last few years I've been cooking more and more and now I love it. I still can't really throw things together quite as eloquently as my mother can, but maybe someday.
Last weekend I tried two new recipes that were delicious.
They both turned out amazing. The hubby and I love brussel sprouts so it was great to find a new way of cooking them. my oven wasn't quite hot enough so I wasn't able to deglaze the balsamic vinegar quite as much as I needed to and it was a little too balsamic-y for me but the hubby said it was fine.
Have you tried any new recipes with success? failure?
