Oh my goodness, it has been a while since I've been on my old blog! LOL I would definitely love to start it up again. I had so much fun :) And I'll tell ya - I have NEVER stopped with all the crafts and art!

I think I'll take a tour around my house and show all my old readers what I've been up to for the last 6 years!

Permenant Hold for a Bit

Hey folks, I realy hate to do this and ave been trying to sqeeuze by without, but SSB is going to have to go an permenant hold until further notice.

This is for several reasons...

1.  I have two jobs and two kids...I have NO extra time to blog...let alone sew, paint or craft.

2.  I don't have a camera.  So even if I could by crafty, I couldn't really share it with you all.

3.  I am trying to spend as much of the little spare time I have with my husband and children.  

4.  We are on a rigorous budget and have NO extra funds for craft supplies, paints, fabric, and all that other fun stuff.  Even our much wanted room re-do's may have to be put on hold.

5.  Blogging is not fun for me right now.  Without time, funds or even the true desire to create right now, whats the point in blogging?  Nearly 100% of my mental capacity right now is working, raising my kids and trying to run this household.

I hope you all understand and I do hope this break is super short and that we can get back on track as quick;y as possible.  Thank yo all in advance for your support, thoughts and prayers thru this difficult time.  

I promise to try and at least post to keep you updated on the status of the blog; when I might return, whats going on with the family...things like that.  But Mad Skills, Feature Friday, etc, will not have regular posts.

Thank you all again and God Bless!

Whatever Wednesday #36

So we'are getting ready to re-decorate our entire house...

we have BIG plans for the kitchen, master bath, guest bath, master bedroom, living room and even plan on enclosing our backporch into a sun room!  Super excited but its gonna take a lot of savings.

Here are some inspiration pics I have collected for our living room...
ps-I have no idea what websites they came from, just googled on web images.

What do you think...
Love the sea foam green with the flashy yellow chair...

I like all the colorful pillows in this one.

I'm admiring the couch in this one...

I like the unique coffee table in this one and the bright curtains.

In LOVE with this.  
Love the bright blue and the tight floral fabrics...not to mention the picture windows.

I like the airy feel to this one and the beautiful art on the wall.  
Kinda digg'n on the peach chair too.

Hope you enjoyed!

Alphonse Mucha Inspired Tattoo

So I've been itch'n for a new tatto but never could decide on what I wanted, and now I think I'll go for something inspired by one of my fav artists.  
Google Alphonse Mucha and you'll find a lot of art you'd recognize such as various wine advertisement prints.

Isn't she beautiful?
Love it, can't wait and I'm saving my pennies, custom work this this will be pricy but worth it!
