B-Day Present to Self

Happy Birthday to me! Today I join the 40 club, yeah. I could not think of a better birthday present to myself then to get my blog started and get something scratched of that bucket list.

Welcome All! I am so excited to get this blog started. Starting a blog has been on the LIST for a while now (like 2-3 years) and I am oh so happy finally, to be at this point.

At some point and time, I guess I will explain what kept it on the LIST for so long. Anyway do you know what this means? Yes, it means I get to cross is off my LIST. As time goes on you will learn that I am a LIST kind of girl. It is a little insane actually. I think I have LIST for LIST. Michael (aka My Guy) just looks at me and shakes his head. God Bless Him is really all I can say. I think my obsession with LIST is because I have ADD and to try keeping myself organized I have to have a LIST for everything. Most people who know me know that if it is not on the LIST chances are it is not getting done. Therefore, if you ever need me to do something for you, make sure you tell me to put it on the LIST. Besides what could be more, gratifying then crossing something off the LIST? Yep at the end of the day, I look at the LIST and get a great since of accomplishment because the LIST is complete. To my fellow LISTER out there you know what I am talking about and those of you who are not, you should try you might like it. Anyway, that is enough about my insanity with the LIST. 

I want to share with you my 3 by 5 piece of heaven. What is that you are asking? Well that would the teeny tiny little room in my house I like to call my studio. Most people would call it a craft room but I prefer studio kind of makes me feel a little artsy ya know. Last May Jeremee moved out and before his bags where packed I was pulling off the trim and getting the project under way. Do not get me wrong I was going to miss my Bug. However, when you are surrounded by the male species it nice to have a little piece heaven to escape to. I did get a few before pictures not as many as I would have like but I did get a few. Keep in mind I am still decorating so this is a work in progress. However, you will see that the transformation so far is AWESOME if I do say so. That is probably because I completed this project all by myself. Yes, I did everything from replacing parts of the bad hard wood floor and trim to sanding and painting the walls. The project did take like 3 times longer then I thought though. I guess that would be the illusion of HGTV. They get rooms done in 3 days right. Anyway with that being said check out my before an after picture below and let me know what yaw think. Until next time.

    I saw you started this on Jocelyn's blog and wanted to say hi.

    Happy Birthday! You don't look anywhere near 40 so I'm wondering if this might be a fiction blog...and you're really like 32 or something!

    I hope you enjoy blogging. And I'll come by your ETSY shop when Uncle Sam and I have come to an agreement on how much he wants to rape and pillage me this year.
