Hanging out on the farm

With the weather getting nicer the kids and I have been going along with Joel to do chores more often. We also have had our share of haybale climbing and tractor rides. Can I just say that I love spring? Or more the impending of it.

Get your craft on!

Let’s just say I have a bit of craft envy going on. You see there are these blogs that I love to read. I dream. I dream of the one day making my house look as wonderful as theirs are.

You see there is just one problem. I’m not creative. Seriously not a creative bone in my body. (okay so I can sew, but really these ladies I’m about to showcase have tallent, serious tallent!)

One of the projects I actually have the nerve to try is this one, from Kindra. Except I’m using a large window that was given to me. I was so excited to find the Mirror Spray paint on Amazon so I could have it shipped instead of driving to Lincoln just for a can of paint. I’m sure I could’ve found it cheaper, but oh well. Not dragging everyone out was totally worth it for me!


Oh so cute!!!!!

I cannot say that I have anything in the works for this next example, but I would LOVE if I did. It’s so cute, and I wish someone would just make one for me! Shelley is so talented, and I LOVE her work!

Another thing I’d love to do  is this makeover of my laundry room. Although it’s in the  basement, so it probably wouldn’t look as cute! :( Maybe our next house….a girl can dream right? If we did, I would totally do this project by Sausha, she has a way with furniture.

I TOTALLY want this for my laundry!

Show me your projects! I love all things that are a little bit not so “modern.”

Wow, it’s been awhile

Yes it’s true we’re still alive here in the Cast household.  We’ve been super busy with well, nothing really. Just life I guess.

For the last 6 months I’ve been working 3 part time jobs simultaneously. My house has gone to the wolves, and it was a fend for yourself kind of household. Within the last month I was recently let go from one of the jobs I love due to lack of funds. It didn’t really hit me how bad the economy is until then. But it’s been a blessing in disguise. I’ve had more time to work on the relationships that mean the most to me.

Since December Joel and I have been having a hard time being husband and wife. We even separated for a while to figure out who we each wanted to be, and to be sure that we still wanted to be with each other. Most people wouldn’t put this on their blog, but I feel why not. It happens all the time.

Thankfully we’re back on track to working things out, and back together. I wouldn’t recommend separation to everyone, but if you’re at your final straw why not try it for a while. It will either make you realize how much you truly NEED the other person in your life, or will just reiterate the facts that you’re better off apart. We’ve both done a lot of growing, and Joel has found his faith again through all of this.

So back to  blogging I’m a coming! Be ready, I’m going to be a better blogger… know now that I have a little more “free” time on my hands! :)
