Ryan.... weird, huh??
I'm going to have more time to Junque as of today - for the next nine months anyway. My four kiddos all headed back to school this morning! August 12th!! 106 degrees!! Whose idea was this?? This was a rough one - let me tell you that I only thought sending a 5 year old off to kindergarten was hard...try sending that one off to his LAST first day of school 12 years later....BOO HOO!!! I didn't realize it would hit me so hard. I've been feeling a little weepy anyway. My oldest looks like Zac Efron's twin - no lie. I went to see "Charlie St. Cloud" this weekend - it was like watching my son hurting on a 30 foot high screen. The resemblance is FREAKY.
Anyway - I'm crafting a back to school - crazy quilt like backpack for the little one - she is excited and picking out beautiful pieces of old and new fabric. I think I am going to do a quilt out of all of Ryan's old baseball shirts - it will be a LARGE quilt! Hailey - happy as can be to be back with her buds at school and looking forward to heading to Warrenton to Junque with mom and dance the night away at the JUNKORAMA PROM- and my Austin...well - he is a Houston boy at heart - and hopes to be there again soon...wish I could craft him a little happiness right now :(
Have a great one - make the most of it!

A gIrl aFter My owN Texas LoVin' heart!  Check her out - cooler than cool painted boots - might have to try my hand at that you crafty crafty girl!

So - the past week has been brain numbingly exhausting. Praise StARbucks and my Grande Nonfat No Whip Mochas for fooling me into thinking I am being good calorie-wise, yet keeping my eyes open with the double espresso shots. You all know when I need to shut down the noggin - the junk comes out along with paintbrushes, mastic, tile - whatever the hell works!! I am getting sooo close to finishing the ugly desk turned patio bar - and have the 5000 nailheads and ugly gold velvet off of one of the two cool chairs with first coat of primer on as well. GOD BLESS KILZ and the many ugly pieces of furniture it helps to turn into ReClaImed BeaUTies.

Good bye ugly gold velvet and hundreds of nails  - hello my soon to be funky shabby beauty!!

Here's hoping you all have a lovely weekend! Make the most of it!
