She's all mine!!

I did it, I finally paid off my car! I paid off my credit card debt about a month ago and now the car is done, I'm out of debt and it couldn't feel any better. It's been a long fought battle, but I won!! It's party time baby!!

It's happening, I'm getting old.....

The other day I was listening to the radio and they were talking about one of the Jazz players, Matt Harpring, and saying how he's getting old. Then they said he'll be turning 33! Excuse me! That's old?!?!? That's way too close to my age (28 & 11 months) to be calling someone old!!

Then today when I was driving back from lunch I noticed a fully grown in white hair! Please say it isn't so, I'm not ready to be old! I think I'll take on my Grandma Wagner's philosophy even though I might grow old, I'll never grow up.

One more weekend project

I always seem to use Conference weekend as a time to finish up projects while I listen to conference. I've had this monkey quilt all but finished for a long time.
I finally got the binding sewed down and it's now completely finished.
Now I just need to have a baby so that I can use it :)

Connor has a new little sister, Hannah. I decided that I needed to make her a quilt to welcome her to the family. I got the top finished this weekend and now just need to get the backing and do the quilting (my least favorite part). My goal is to give it to her by the end of May, so I'll have to try to keep myself on track.

I love to organize

Matt was complaining that our cupboards were bare so I finally went to the grocery store and did some shopping. I happened upon a caselot sale and stocked up. The only problem.....where to put it all!! I ended up pulling everything out and adding the secondary shelves and the "cansolidator". I love the new organized look, I wish I would have thought to take a before shot.
The "cansolidator" is by far my favorite part and I would love to get more for my food storage in the basement. That's my next organizing project......

Shhhh, don't tell Aubrielle......

My niece, Aubrielle, has been bugging me to finish this quilt for awhile. She called me up one day and said "I'm just calling to see if you've been working on my quilt a lot." I guess I can't blame her since she helped me pick out some of the fabric back in Sept :) Well it's finally done and will be going in the mail today, but I haven't told her it's done so she'll be quite surprised when it comes in the mail.
There are 2 squares of each picture so it's also a matching game.

What's wrong with these pictures?

If you answered that all the cabinet doors are missing, you are correct. What I thought was going to be a very simple project of replacing the hinges that had been completely painted over has taken on a life of it's own. As I was taking off the doors I started noticing how dirty they were. At first I thought I would just clean them up and call it good. But then when I went to install one of the new hinges on the cupboard, I realized that the hinges weren't exactly the same size and the paint was built up so much around the old ones that I'm going to have to sand that down and at least paint there. So I guess I might as well paint the doors......

Should we take bets on how long I'm without cabinet doors??
