I have a lot of decisions to make! Looking forward to most of it...all but flooring. I don't like that part!

I am in the midst of thinking of what colors I would like to have in my new house. I am a color person...love it! However, just recently I have discovered that I also like little "pops" of color. For example, the walls painted white and then the accents in the room bright. Like the photo below, isn't it cool?!

The weather had definitely taken a turn for the better here in Iowa! Yesterday I spent all afternoon and evening cleaning up the yard. We have all these wonderful old trees on the yard...combine that with Iowa wind, and you get about a billion sticks all over the place! Yesterday was not so windy, so I decided to burn some of those piles of sticks that I have been collecting. I am wondering if I am exaggerating with that number of sticks...we have over 300 trees on our property, so I think I could be close!
While I was out there working, I noticed this tree, that is protected by a building, is starting to get it's leaves. What a wonderful sight! I had to get a pic of it. I hope you are enjoying your Spring!

I am in the middle of tearing my house apart for my garage sale that I am having. We are going to be moving this fall, and after 16 years, it is time to get rid of stuff! I have a lot of things that I have saved over the years from my walls that I know I will never put up in my new house!
In the past I have been to many estate auctions because I was in love with old things! Loved them! I still do to a point, but my tastes have changed somewhat. I will miss my old "hook" that I have in my bathroom to hang my hand towel on, but it's staying with the house.
Yesterday I videotaped my house (well, at least the clean rooms ;) so that I will always remember how it looked. I also did it for my younger kids because they probably will not even remember living here!The starting date for the new house is drawing closer, and I am getting very excited about it!

A week ago we had a lot of snow on the ground. In between we have had a lot of melting, however, we still have spots of snow here and there. I took this photo last Sunday and I love it! Even though it was cold and I am so ready for some really warm weather!

Yay! I did it...I cut my hair, and I am loving it! It's not as drastic as Katelyn's, but still people are going to notice! However, I don't know if I am as brave as Katelyn, so I'm not sure I will post pics. Yikes! Oh, wimpy me. (I always hate pics of me anyway!) But my head feels great, I'm loving the style, and I hope it's easy to do!
Here is my favorite card that I have made lately...just LOVE it! The colors are awesome together, and the font...oh I love that font! Just added it to my Etsy shop!

It's official...after selling on Etsy for almost a year and a half, I am just now getting some official looking cards with my URLs on it! Go Moo cards! I can't wait to get them!
I have been making my own, and lately I haven't made enough. Every order I was almost done packing then, oh yeah, a card! Made me so crabby! I'll be sure to post pics when I get them!
Here is my newest Mother's Day card: (I do need to take some better photos of it!)

I am loving this picture of the day thing! The other day I gave my camera to my youngest little tike, and it was fun to see his perspective on life! Take a look at the photo I chose for that day:
