Five on Friday

Here we go again, thought we could start the new year with another Five on Friday!

Linking up with Darci from, the good life blog this week.




1- Whatever Craft Weekend

I am off to Wichita, KS this morning!  My friend Christine and I are going to Whatever Craft Weekend!  I feel like a giddy 12 year old waiting for her first sleepover!  Work on new craft projects – check!  Eat mouth watering food – check!  Pick up goodies at an antuque store – check!  Can it get any better?!?!  If you have never checked out Meg’s blog before, you need too right now.  Her pictures alone will inspire you, and within minutes you will be in awe of her beautiful crafty life!  Most excited to visit the “barn” and bring back some treasures.  We are actually checking empty bags for the flight there in hopes to fill them up with goodies to bring home!!


2- The Best Yes

Loading this book, The Best Yes, on my kindle for my trip.  I have read so many reviews on this book, that I couldn’t pass it up.  The amazon description alone, sucked me in: Cure the disease to please with a biblical perspective on love – escape the guilt of disapointing others by learning the secret of the small no.  Yes please!  Sign me up!  As a recovering people pleaser how could I pass up this book?



3- Friends

Not sure how I missed this – but every season of Friends is on Netflix!  Literally the perfect show to have on in the background as I work on my signs.  I have only seen episodes here and there on tv, so I am thrilled to watch it all.  Oh yes I am going to work my way through it!   Started right at the first episode in Season one and I am just moving along.



4- Letting go of stuff

My husband and I are are on this organizing- purge high right now and this quote is really what I want to focus on.  I know I hold on to way to many things that I got on sale years ago, or so and so gave me but I never use.  Suprisingly my husband is doing way better with this all.  Seriously I may be slighly nervous as I leave this weekend that I might come back searching for things he has thrown out.  It feels good to get rid of the clutter and simplify.  Its amazing how much stuff you just end up accumulating that just ends up sitting there.  I have a list of places in the house I want to go through and cleanse!  Not sure how he is going to feel as I lug back suitcases of goodies from Kansas – but he will just have to deal with it all.  I mean it could be worse right?



5- Projects & Chalk Paint

2015 is the year I will complete the list of projects in my head that I keep saying I want to do.  Since getting a pew from my parents house that was from the church I grew up at, I have debated painting it white.  Seven years later, I finally did it. And guess what it literally took 2 days, and was soooo easy.  I am moving righ a long to the coffee table and end table I had thrifted awhile ago, and let me just tell you it’s taking all the self control I have to not use chalk paint on everything in my house.  I have read about it for months now, and finally joined the club – I am hooked.  The matte finish, the way it distresses, I am obsessed.  I even saw somewhere you can make your own with paris of plaster or something.  Need to get on that quick!


Enjoy your weekend everyone!

This Jersey girl is headed out to Kansas to craft her little heart away!  Eeeek!!
