Thanks to everyone else who has participated and shared this giveaway on your blog! I truly appreciate you making the time for those things!! Make sure to keep stopping back here, I am finally starting to get my crafty mojo back and I can't wait to start sharing all my projects with you all!! PLUS, I already have a few items I have picked up for some more giveaways!! :) 

Unfortunately, I don't have a project to share with you today (but I AM working on some, so stay tuned! :)) but I thought I would share a few pictures from our recent holiday. My cousin and I took the girls to Orlando to do a little work on our home there, as well as squeeze a little fun in! :) 

We went to Clearwater Beach for one day, and the girls LOVED it!!! It was their first time ever seeing the ocean, so it was pretty special. 

 We also went to Downtown Disney a couple of times to walk around, do some shopping and have some yummy eats!! 

Every night we walked to the park in the community where our home was. 

 And of course, we LOVED having our own pool right on our patio!! Endless hours of fun!! 

Hope you enjoyed seeing a few pics from our vacation! We'll be going back again in December with the girls, plus a newborn!! Call us CRAZY, as it's a 9 hour travel day!!!!!

Trunk Full Of Love

Hi Everyone!!!!! So sorry it has taken me so long to get back on here to post.... I AM feeling better, which I am SO thankful for, but just am still trying to get organized after a couple crazy months.

One thing on my 'Getting Organized' list was to come visit our home in Orlando to do some upgrading. We rent  it out to families, but we haven't even had a chance to get here ourselves since we bought it in September! I came here with the girls, plus the help of a cousin of mine, to replace some furniture, pick out a few paint colors, light fixtures, etc. PLUS soak up some sun in the pool and at the beach. :) It has been exactly what I needed...(Other than the loooong flight here with screaming, cranky kids!!)

Here they are loving the beach, happy as little clams! :)

Today is my day to post over at the Pink By Design blog. 
I'm going to give you a little peek, but I would be soo happy if you would sneak over there to see the rest of the project! :)

 I promise I am trying to get working in my craftroom more often so I can post more, so hang in there with me!! I don't want to lose all of you great friends who used to stop in here to say 'Hi' all the time!! :) 

Wish me luck with the girls on the plane ride home!! (We're actually going to be on the plane the day this post is published!!)
