Craft Room Inspiration.

I was going to wait to look up ideas for when we moved, but since we are having to wait till our lease is up (which is may of this year) I thought I'd get started on looking up ideas. The first room I decided to look for ideas was our office/craft room which happens to be our 3rd bedroom. And here are some of the pictures I found that I really liked:

Our son Aiden used to be on a schedule back when we lived in England, but since we left he's never gotten back on schedule. We've just made sure to do the same routine in the morning when he gets up and again at night for bedtime. Since he'll be turning 2 in four months I thought about putting him back on a schedule to where I add things to his day like learning time where we use flash cards to tech him the alphabet, animals, body parts etc, read to him more (its hard to read to him cos he wants to turn the page after 2-3 words or he wants to throw it/chew on it.) and have arts and crafts. I'd also like to get him back to eating right. I feel bad to how his eating habits have gotten. He's so picky and doesn't seem to like much of anything except junk and even then he doesn't eat much of it. (he's more into playing/exploring.) So, I'd like to get him started on eating better so that he doesn't take those bad eating habits and go into the future w/them and become obese.(which he prolly won't cos like I said he doesn't eat much when he does eat something he likes.)

Christmas and the New Year.

I was unable to make a wreath and do a table setting like I wanted but here is how our home looked for Christmas....

My Christmas Inspiration.

I was looking up ideas for Christmas decor and came upon this picture:
I fell in love w/ the blue, silver and white color scheme and decided that's what I was going for this year. Will post pics as soon as I can.

5 days till Christmas!

This year I have my mother, her fiance John, my sister and her husband all coming for Christmas. I'm pretty excited and a little bit stressed out due to all the things that need to be done around the house. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so when I have anyone coming to stay or just coming for the day (doesn't matter who it is) everything needs to be clean from top to bottom and of course I cook, bake and decorate if the occasion calls for it. It can be pretty tiresome task when you have a toddler underfoot that wants to be held every 3 minutes or goes and does something to make it seem like he hurt himself so I can can pick him up and "kiss it better" and if I don't he throws the biggest fits so then of course I stop what I'm doing and  go calm him down and try to make him happy only to find 3 minutes later it happens all over again.....
