Just a thought!

Was browsing thru Pinterest and I came across this. It made me realize that even though times are hard, we gotta remember to thank God through it all.

The White House Fall Garden Tour

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit the White House last weekend thanks to the Hubs. 

The White House Grounds are the oldest continually maintained landscape in the United States. Twice a year, the grounds are opened to the public for a Spring & Fall Garden Tour. And we had the chance to hang out at the White House! 

 I was ready to snap away! 

It was surreal to be walking around the White House Garden as if it was my own home.

We had an amazing time exploring the South Lawn and experiencing the breathtaking views of the warm Fall colors.

Office/ Craft Room Facelift

New house, new mess! I was looking around my office and realized I needed it to look better and functional; some TLC and love!

We moved to Virginia in January and I need to get back onto my crafting/scrapbooking days, its been a while. So in order to get into the grove, I gotta make it look GREAT!

I have managed to create a mess and do research and lots of brainstorming. I am trying to be frugal and smart at the same way, so its going to take a bit of time to find the best deals and items. 

I need to get all my things organized and thats a lot. I used to be a Creative Memories Consultant so I have lots of scrapbooking things but since they haven't been organized, I don't know where they are.
My little helper
I started by making an inventory list to get an idea of what i had and what I needed to get. I wasn't surprised to find all sorts of things. It was an exhausting procedure but totally worth it. 

As of today this is how my room looks.  

Stay tuned for a more details.
