I've been busy... :)

This past week I've been working on several different proects... a new wreath for my front door, an adorable romper for my niece and some beautiful, Oklahoma inspired, soldered jewelry :)

Being a militry wife, I'm always feeling patriotic... I love how this wreath turned out!

This romper is so flippin cute.. I cannot wait to see my niece, Izzy, wearing it :)
I think I'm going to make a Fourth of July one too!


And some beautiful jewelry :) This first one will be auctioned off @ starting June 10th!

Brag Bag

I LOVE this diaper bag I made for my niece... I used the Nikki bag pattern from Paisley Pear Quilts on Etsy.... I altered the pattern a little and added the ruffle and the inside pockets and, of course, embroidered sweet Isabella's name.... It really turned out beautiful! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Thank God for making Oklahoma

And on the 9th day, God looked down on his planed paradise and said, "I need someone to live where the red dirt is settled." So God made Oklahomans. He said "I need someone who can handle the blistering summers and the freezing winters." So God made Oklahomans. "I need someone who can wake up in the morning, drink black coffee, head out to the fields, cut the wheat, bale the hay, and stay in those fields till long after dark" so God made Oklahomans. "I need people tough enough to stand the heat as they work day in and out on drilling rigs and pumping units." So God made Oklahomans. "I need people to wear Orange & Black, Crimson & Cream and though those schools are rivals, all can rise together to support the Orange & Blue." So, God made Oklahomans. "I need people who believe in me and the power of goodness.  People who aren't afraid to say "Hello!" to one another and welcome in visitors to their land with open arms." So God made Oklahomans.  "I need people who are strong enough to stand thru the strongest storms and the most devastating heartbreaks" So God made Oklahomans. "And admits the destruction, turn to me for comfort and come together as a state and rise above it all." So, God made Oklahomans.

Change IS GOOD!

I've started a new blog with a new look... I'm a Marine Wife with 3 kids and an amazing husband... I'm a country girl at heart, born and raised in Oklahoma... We recently moved to Illinois and I've spent the past few months renovating this beautiful home we moved into... SO, I thought I'd share some pics ;) Enjoy! You can see all of my work at

I love this kitchen

 The beautiful Dining room was completely
 sanded and stripped and needed some love


My Studio... Like the dining room.. wood was bare...
I love the look the character of all the wood, but it needed some color..
