{ Wool Felt Ball Garlands For Sale }

I've started a little side business for myself. Well, actually it's so I can help contribute to our family of 8's finances.
We would LOVE to get out of debt and build a home of our own. So Felt balls is what I'm doing right now and I so hope and pray that it takes off. I/we really need this to work. I will be selling 100% Wool Felt Ball Garlands and some holiday banners as well.

Here are a few that I have made. All are available to purchase in my (Click Here Etsy Shop) or you can find my Etsy shop widget over on the right hand of your screen. :) ALL Felt Ball Garlands are $15.00 for a 6.5-7 foot Garland.
The colors are more vibrant than the photos show. I took these pics with my sad cell phone. I also have some Fall & Christmas Garlands ready to post as well. Just need to get the pictures up. :)

{ Ledger Turns 1! }

 So he went and turned 1 on me. It's okay really, i'm really liking this bigger grown up baby stage. He's more independent on his own and less dependent on me. It's a win, win for both of us! I had great ideas about doing his 1 yr shoot but he was less than cooperative, so we really only got 1 shot of him that was semi-decent and he wouldn't wear the headdress I had made. He's a little stinker but I love his guts!

{ Planked Bathroom Ceiling }

Did I ever mention that we planked our bathroom ceiling?
Mostly likely not.
Anywho, we have 1 bathroom in this house of 8 people. That's right I said 8. Yes, this bathroom most days is like Grand Central Station. I kid you not. We so need another bath or maybe we just need to move.
I say move, what? did I just say that out loud?
Anyway, focus Rachel! This bathroom used to be part of a porch. This old farm house never had an actual bathroom until the 1960's. They had used an outhouse up this point. I'm so envisioning an episode of Alaska the Last Frontier right now.

The ceilings are SUPER low and the bathroom is VERY small. In fact to make the bathroom even smaller, when we moved in there was a wall with a door in the middle of the bathroom separating the sink from the tub & toilet. We removed the wall and door and put in a new sink vanity and tile etc. But that left a nasty line in the ceiling where the stud was from the wall So the only thing I could come up with to hide the ceiling and all it's imperfections was to plank it.
Here are the before pics:

We used some leftover wood pieces (very thin wood might I add, as to not add to much bulk to the ceiling- the ceiling is low enough as it is) from my husbands work. So this project cost us PENNIES we used some nails (air nailer) and a dab of wood glue here and there. We have since painted the planks white with some leftover paint we had and I LOVE IT. It's holding up great, even with all of us who shower on a daily basis.
We also want to trim out the ceiling but are on hold as we may be doing a major remodel of the bathroom all together. We want to remove the tub and put in a walk in shower. That means new tile, new floor etc...

I promise to take some after pictures here soon.
We are still working on a few things like a light fixture, you would think we could get that one up, but no......
I'll post some updates soon!

Chat with ya later! Pin It

{ Ledger At 9 Months }

On February 16, 2015 Ledger does the whole HOW BIG IS LEDGER with his hands raised in the air. It's pretty darn cute. He also said MAMA!!! I'll take that win!
He also learned to shake his head NO. It's his new favorite thing, and boy does he ever know what he does and doesn't' like. 
He lets me know for sure with just a shake of his head!
On 2.19.15 he took on clapping.
