I am back I am back I am back :o)

Hello blog world and blog friends I have missed you!  I have missed having my usually calm and normal life.  I have missed my somewhat organized life. And lets just face it I have missed not living out of boxes!!!!  But the internet is hooked up again and I am on the road to normalcy once again!  Overall our move went well it just felt like it took forrrreeeevvverrr!!!!  I remember moving to Michigan I hardly had a trailer full of belongings....ahhhhh but wow how times have changed....I didn't even notice until this move---my belonging have multiplied.  I like how my mother-in law refers to this little problem as the "stuff factor"  you know, the stuff that accumulates in closets and drawers.....yeah I am guessing we all have it, but wow does the "stuff factor" make moving to a different state difficult as ever!!!  But I am here, I am alive, I only had a few of my treasures break along the way (not bad if you ask me) and I am finally settling in.  As of yesterday the last big box was unpacked so that means that the fun part of moving is going to begin-----decorating (making a house into a home) and organizing (uggggghhhh I am not so good at this one)!  So as you can guess I will be sharing some of my ideas, tell you about my mess-ups and hopefully inspire you along the way!  

I should also maybe explain:  I am now enjoying my month in a half "off" before I start working (it takes that long for the state you want to practice in, to process your license), this means that I will have time on my hands while being on a tight budget.  My arts and crafts will be up-cycled finds and garage sale treasures, which I think are more fun than buying new anyways!  Also I must note that hubs and I are back under the same roof and are now living in a beautiful RENTAL home until we are ready to buy in the next few years.  I know most of you can understand that rental home living is different than home ownership living, and so of course I will be working with what I have (purple walls and all) to make this place my own (without tearing down walls or adding anything too permanent).  

And to start with I must show you my crafty room (or at least a tiny part of it I am attempting to organize)!!!!!!!!

First crafty project back in blog land is nice and simple:

All I did was find myself a bar from a garage sale....not sure what they were for but I liked them because they looked a bit vintage.  Find yourself some really inexpensive curtain rod hangers to hold the top bar and attach the second with ribbon.  I also found some super clearance fancy curtain holders from JCP for 2 dollars per pack.
That is about all for this project, then I just labeled the buckets---ahhhh crafty room I am loving you already!  I am sure I will be hanging projects or pictures or really anything that I am working on up here also but really anything that is super functional is great in my mind!!!! 

{not perfect, but like I always say, none of my crafty projects are}

I am linking up here
