HaPPy!! HaLLoWeeN!!!

Hey Y'all!!  Yes it has been a few weeks.  I've had so much going on and just not enough hours in my days to keep up!  Whew!!

But I couldn't let today get away from me without sharing this yummy treat!!!

I have always loved "Pay Day" Candy Bars.  And I love the salty 'n' sweet taste it provides.  So when a fellow co-worker shared this awesome treat I knew I wanted to make it and share it with you.

It is super easy to make and not really expensive either.

How To Make A Storage Box

Hey Y'all!!
I'm a day late but here is my D.I.Y. Project.
First I must apologize for my blurry pictures.  My battery was running low.

I pinch pennies.  
And I have been wanting some storage boxes to get my Linen Closet...
not just organized but pretty and fashionable too.  
But my budget just won't allow me to go out and buy any.  
I asked my daughter Allie to save me a diaper box from one our littles 
so I could try to cover it and turn it into a storage box.

How To Do Faux Venetian Plaster Wall Texture

Hey Y'all!!
I know you've all seen the walls at "Olive Garden Italian Kitchen".  You know those beautiful yet rustic Tuscan walls.  I love those walls so much!!!
For years I have been trying to figure out how to do those walls!!
I finally decided after searching for a good tutorial without much success that I was just going to have to venture out on my own and try to do it myself.  I first tried it in a small room....the Bathroom Makeover.
And now I've gone bigger.  I'm doing my kitchen walls.

Fallen Off The Radar!!!!

Hey Y'all!
Yes I'm still alive!  It has been sooooo long.  And I do apologize.  I have been running like a chicken with my head cut off.  Sorry!!  With cleaning and organizing homes, school starting and getting my preschool room and lesson plans ready, I have hardly had time to sneeze!

But I'm back and will be posting regularly.  Monday's will be DIYs & Crafting Ideas, Wednesday's will be PinTrusted or PinBusted, and Friday's will be open.  So I'm open to suggestions to post about on Friday's it will be a hodge podge day!

Check back on Monday to see how things are going on my Kitchen Makeover!

So what would you like to talk about on Friday's?

My Kitchen Update

Hey Y'all!  How y'all doing?

I have been going in circles lately.
But I am not complaining by any means!  Being busy is great!
Work on my kitchen is coming along.  I have been trying to squeeze in as much time to work on the kitchen as I can.

But I had a lady call and she needed me to come and do CPR on her home!  (wink, wink)
Actually she wanted me to come and help get her home organized, cleaned out and cleaned up!

So I called princess # 1 aka Mandi to come and help!  We make a great team.  We think a lot alike and in fact we can almost finish each other's thoughts and sentences.

We have been working 2 to 3 days a week lately plus I already had a couple of homes that I take care of on Wednesdays.  So squeezing in spare time has been crazy tight!

PinTrusted or PinBusted ~ Miracle Cleaner ~

Hey Y'all,
It's that time of the week when we see if a pin is Trusted or Busted.

This week I decided to put the "Miracle Cleaner" to the test.  You know the one that claims you can make your pans look like new again by making this paste out of Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide.  I have just the cookie sheet to test it on.  So come on and check it out.

I know....let's all say it together....GROSS!!!!
