2014 is MY YEAR!!!

I have realized that this is my last year in my 30's...wow!  I am not sad or anything, but I am making this my year!!!  I have so much planned...nothing that can't be accomplished!

My goals are to:  craft more, cook more, read more, and save more!  Not too bad considering last year I barely did any of this.

First thing up is getting my craft room in order.  I am moving rooms to allow my mama space to move in when her house sells.  Even though this is a temporary move, I am going to make this space my own!  When we bought the house Pinterest wasn't around and since I have found many ideas.  Now I can do a trial run of the ideas I love!

Oh and I even ordered photos!!!  Disney 2011 is on it's way!!!  It will be so nice to see these pics and get scrapping.  I am celebrating my 40th with a good friend and the best place on earth...DISNEY WORLD!!!  This will help pass the time.  

You will be "hearing" more from me soon...that is my goal for 2014!

New Year, New Beginnings...Operation Opolski Organization

This year we are taking on a major overhaul.  We have acquired so much stuff!!!  We have vowed to gut and purge our lives of stuff this year...at least make a huge dent!  This also includes using what we have and doing some home decor.  I hope to be more crafty this year!!!

Here is our first step!  We went to get some supplies!

Finally some crafting...

Getting a little craftier these days!

These were for my friend.  Her son graduated from high school!
Then I started on Reed's 1st Birthday Invitations! 
I can't believe he is already going to be 1!  I forgot to add the date and time.  Oops!  Hope this will get me out of my slump.  I am working on Gramm's right now!

Until next time...

Another "Home" Vacation gone...

Both Drew and I were off the last week and I got NOTHING accomplished!!  Drew spent everyday working at his mom's which was planned, but I was hoping to do stuff while he was gone.

I did manage to try 2 new recipes from Pinterest!!  I have the 2nd one in the crockpot now!

I need to make a baby gift for my cousin and really should start organizing my thoughts for a nice craft project.

I also need to start working on teacher gifts for the nephews!  They will be here in a couple of weeks and want to send them back with them to save on shipping!

Until next time...

Getting Ready for May...

Well I didn't get any Pinterest projects done on my last vacation.  I have 9 days off this time and not sure how many I will get done this time. 

May is going to be so busy.  I need to help my neighbor with graduation announcements, my nephew Reed will be baptized, I need to finish my nephew's teacher gifts! 

Danica is doing well.  She is adjusting and Daisy LOVES having a new sister!!!

10 Days 10 Projects!!

Like many, I have become addicted to Pinterest.  I spend way too much time on there and have only done 2 recipes since beginning.  Now I have 10 days off and have high expectations!  Tomorrow I am heading to CKC with my friend Michele and I hope to do some of the layouts that I have pinned!!  I also need to get Reed's Baptism invites in the mail.  Those will be addressed and ready to go out on Monday!!

When I return from CKC I hope to do some of the recipes, organization projects, and home decor pins.  I think Drew is skeptical of the cooking!  I told him I want to eat at the table every day next week!

Oh and another exciting thing for next week is we are bringing home our new pup.  Danica "Dani" will be a little over 10 weeks, but will finally be home!  She is a beagle, pug, lab, basset mix!  She will be joining our beagle/basset Daisy!
