Focus Friday

Focus Friday

Ellen over at Thrifty & Chic Mom has this great weekly challenge. Focus Friday is where you list a couple of small and/or large projects that you want to focus on for the week and then the next week you tell how you did at getting those projects done.

Last weeks goals were...(I missed last week so these are 2 wks ago)

1.) Enjoy our family time during spring break! We had a fabulous spring break, look at my past posts to read about our family outings!

2.) Do a little work on the master bedroom. Over the past two weeks I got this DONE!!!! With the exception of the top of hubby's dresser, I'll keep *hinting* for him to get this done. Here's some after pictures...
I made the curtains from some clearance fabric and a pillowcase.

I used more of the fabric and another pillowcase for my vanity cover.

I used a flat sheet for the closet cover. On the dresser I got a reed diffuser, so nice for my new room to smell like "hawaiian mist".

This wall art has a wedding and a current photo of Mike & I and a marriage poem in the middle. The baby bed below is just waiting for a new little foster baby to lay it's sweet head.

This weeks goals...

1.) Go through the basement to find a few things to put in my friends garage sale next weekend.
2.) Bake something for the cheer bake sale.
3.) Straighten 2 areas in the basement.
