Apparently, parking can be a problem anywhere

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Parking is no longer just an issue for the mall or grocery store. Yes, oh yessss…..you know what I mean, just a major cluster of those drivers that believe parking lines is only a suggested area to park.  Well apparently my kids have caught on to these wonderful parking skills!! Their logic, wherever it fits is where it sits. Which means 99% of the time that means…..PATIO PARKING….AND IN OUR WAY!!

Hello awesome peoples!!!  Hope y’all are having a great week.  If it is anything like ours….it is super BUSY!!!  The school year is ending for the girls, with summer & sports about to kick off,  Lowdy!!! Well besides all that…I wanted to share with y’all my awesome Momma’s Day gifts from Jeff and the girls!!!  He knew how much I wanted to add so much more color to my garden and they hit it out of the park for me!!

If ya missed my blab from last week….here they are in the pic below.  Cute little “stone” garden markers.  Made by the hands of my awesome hubs and my girls!! I wanted to share with y’all how you can make some of your own, which according to Jeff, they are pretty easy to do.  So bare with me this time….I have to do an “interview” since I was not a part of this DIY party, hehe!! And here we go….

Finally, for real this time!! Yes, really, I have finally reached the end!! Spring cleaning of my excess DIY “treasures” has come to a close.  Grant it MAY be due to sheer frustration that it is over, but nonetheless it is over.   I have to admit I am rather pleased with how much I was actually able to do.  Sometimes for me, it takes sitting back and just scooping out what I do have without an idea already planted in my mind of what I want to do.  Knocked out some of my wine bottles, leftover tile, bottle caps, shutters and cabinet doors (that just happened to be buried under said treasures) go ahead and check those out if ya missed it.  I’ll wait here. Hehe.

Well lets get to it….my last bit is just using up these two windows I had sitting in the garage and shed.  Need to get these going so we don’t have busted glass under little feet from any accidents that may happen.

Let’s enjoy a bottle, or two?!

Written by Jessica Chaffins

I have finally reached the end, at least for me!!  I feel like I have made a good dent in some of my extras, but sho’ haven’t gotten rid of it all!! Pssshhh I’m not that good!! At least I was able to use up a good bit of my little “things” that have added up and taken up the most room.  Used up a good bit of bottle caps (will be using more since my mom has now asked for one too, hehe), put my leftover kitchen tile to good use, even made great use of those shutters that have been sitting in the garage!! Needless to say, I am pretty pleased that I was able to use them up, even with some of the hiccups, still pleased.

Now onto my next cluster of overflow….major overflow….WINE BOTTLES!!! This is only a small smidge of ’em, geez, trust me, I have plenty!!!! Ssshhh….don’t judge hehe!! Momma has to have her grape juice too.

UPDATE for This will just make you “shutter”

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Well here I am, just as I promised. Almost didn’t return….I have to admit I became pretty irrittated with the remainder of this project.  If you missed it, check out This will just make you “shutter” and it will bring ya up-to-date with my bits of drama.

I finally got a chance to get a barrel bolt for my shutter cabinet.  Hoping that this will help keep the doors closed nicely.  Uhhuh…think again….SURPRISE!!!! That didn’t work either!!! Ok….now I am just t’d off, so much I literally grabbed up all my stuff and just walked away!!!  Dag-nab-it this cabinet is getting the best of me!!

This will just make you “shutter”

Written by Jessica Chaffins

OH…..This might have been too big of tackle for me (well mostly Jeff but hey)!!  After conquering two projects to overcome my clutter, I may have bitten off a little more than I expected.

My two trays from the past two weeks were so easy and turned out just as awesome as I had hoped……BUT this week I think I went in a little cocky! My plan seemed simple, but I guess that was the issue!  Might seem simple but is little more complex…especially when working with very old, wooden shutters.

Creative minds are rarely tidy….hence the extensive spring cleaning!!!  At least this is going far better than I anticipated!!!  Been able to combine most of my “extras” to make something new and so useful for us!!

But I will have to say that I am far more excited about my new project for this week!!!  This is something that I needed terribly and am soooo excited to see that it looks wonderful!!! I “shutter” to think that you will miss it!!
