Livin' It Up!

Happy New Year!!

Oh wait it's January 11th already...it's been a doozy since New Year's when we all came down with terrible bouts of flu, cold, an ear infection, & teething AND were a million miles from the comforts of home AND had Nate's intensive job training leaving me single parenting.

But joyfully with God's grace we are making it through & I'm relishing in some new found energy {hey missed you}. Gotta say I'm inspired by downtime on pinterest & here's two of my own takes!

1) Organizing my Kitchen: Part 1 Before & After (original idea found on Inspire Board here)

2) Altering a Clipboard with Scrapbook Paper (concept found on Inspire Board here)

The clean portion of the kitchen gives me hope we will climb out the post holiday chaos & the clipboard can't help but make me smile with it's cheerful fun!

with redeeming hands,


  1. I love the feeling or organizing...I really outght to organize my kitchen, too! ;) I love your chipboard...you're right, you can't help but smile when you see it :)
