Feeding the Birds and Bubbles

Just stopping in to post two new layouts that I did a few weeks ago..

My niece LOVES to help her grandma put birdseed in the bird feeders. On this particular day, she wanted her papa (my dad) to help lift her up so she can reach the feeder.

Project Restyle

Elsie (a.k.a. Mrs. Larson--CONGRATULATIONS!!!) at A Beautiful Mess has started a Project Restyle awhile back and I just decided to join that bandwagon.

I just recently painted my bedroom and wanted one tall bookshelf instead of two smaller ones. My stepmom put these two together by drilling smaller boards at the bottom of one shelf and the top of the other shelf. (I am no where near construction/carpentry smart, so I have no idea really how to explain this...) After the two shelves were together, I covered a particle board with American Crafts patterned paper. I used a spray adhesive to attach the patterned paper. I, well not me but my stepmom, nailed the particle board to the back of the bookshelf. I actually measured the bookshelf wrong so the particle board was too short and too wide. The short part really didn't bother me because I just covered that up with books (the bottom shelf), but the wide part I had to do away with. I didn't take any pictures, but I took a utility knife and just cut it off. It came off pretty easy too! Now I am left with a bookshelf that I love!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! I have a few graduation parties to attend tomorrow and then back to the coal mine on Monday. I'm counting down the days to the 3 day weekend that is coming up!

What's In My Purse

I can't believe that it has been almost a month since I've posted. I need to get better at this blogging thing huh? My bedroom is done, I have to take pictures yet, but will soon! In the mean time, I decided to show you what's in my purse!

I LOVE this purse! It is a purse-n-ality purse party purse. It is super springy and I love the colors!

Anyways, here is what is in my purse...
1. Pens.. I have a thing for pens. I love pens and have a ton laying all over my room.
2. Book and receipt/bill.. I always carry a book with me. I usually read while I am on my break at work. I also have my eye doctor receipt and a dentist bill.
3. Checkbook and Car Payment slips..
4. Calculator and little notebook.. Need a calculator to balance my checkbook (I am horrible at math) and a little notebook to write down all the lists and things to do.
5. Perfume.. Gotta smell good through out the day! I love this Sex and the City perfume. I got it at Gordman's for $6!
6. Work schedules and receipts.. I am horrible and taking out my old work schedules.
7. Deodorant.. Can't have stinky pits!
8. Foot lotion and eyeglasses cleaner/rag.. My feet get super dry during the day and my glasses get really dirty through out the day as I work in a daycare.
9. Roll of stamps..
10. Prescription Pills and EyeRestore Pills.. Recently went to the eye doctor and they did a new test on my eyes and the macular pigment in my eyes is slowly going away and I have to take a pill daily to help improve the pigment. If I don't, in the future I could go blind. Scary!
11. Chapstick..
12. Hand lotion and sanitizer.. Twilight Woods from Bath and Body Works--smells really good!
13. Owl Wallet.. From Mod Cloth. I LOVE owls!

Normally, I can't find anything in my purse because I just throw any lose paper, candy, change, etc. in here, but since I bought the Kangaroo Keeper, it makes finding things so much easier!!
