    A Painted Vintage High Chair… and Progress

    Today an AMAZING thing happened, I actually finished a project. Yes, I said finished! I know, I know, it is very hard to believe. However, I did have a little motivation in the form of an angry giant who wanted to pull his truck in the garage. Shh! Did you hear that? Me, neither… Two […]

  • Sunsets are Therapeutic

    They should NOT allow women with multiple children to attend church without a significant other/referee/hired thug. I thought I’d figured that out last week, but today really cemented it for me! Lulu was in rare form today… which was not helped by the “dry-councilman” going over time. I took the baby out once, June out […]

  • Don't just Survive, Thrive {Gypsy Magpie}

    Survival Mode

    I wish I could say that my absence from blogging was because I was on an incredible trip or doing something fabulous, BUT that would be far from reality. What have I been doing? Well, to sum it up in one word… surviving. You’d think that after 7+ years of this job, that the traveling […]

Yep, I have had a creative block, for MONTHS! To some people that might seem pretty silly, but for someone who has a natural inner need to create, […]

    Honeybee

    via The Graphics Fairy I found out this week that I am getting a niece. I couldn’t be more thrilled. Apparently, after all the boys my parents produced, there is no testosterone left! This will be the 4th granddaughter. Who would have ever imagined, well, other than my Nana. She wishes girls on everyone so […]

  • About Me {Gypsy Magpie}

    The Letter

    My Daddy thinks I’m pretty great. He always has. And if that wasn’t always the case, he NEVER let on. I was his “Sunshine Girl” and my little girl me made him happy. But, if you listen to most of my extended family or old neighbors tell it, you’d get a different story. I must of […]
