I Did A Thing

Okay, we have all seen Pinterest by now. I am sure like me you have all tried and failed at several very interesting Pinterest ideas. Let's be honest with ourselves, they make it look way too easy most of the time. I know I have picked one or two DIY crafts thinking "this will be a piece of cake" and scrapping it half way through because I realized whoever created it on Pinterest was obviously a DIY Home Network Pro.  I could list my Pinterest failures but today I decided to list just one of my successes.

Have any of you seen the play house makeovers? Pinterest has been flooded with them the last few months and I vowed that if I found a used playhouse for the right price (or free) I would snag it and spruce the thing up. Well, my time came. I found a playhouse for cheap that had been collecting dirt, dust and spiders in someones yard for a few years. A neighbor helped me go pick it up and my two day project began.

I paid $40.00 for the playhouse (I tried but could NOT get the person to come down on the price).
I purchased $30.00 in supplies.

Total Spent: 70.00

This particular playhouse brand new is priced at $170.00. (And still ugly brand new).

Here are the before and after photos:

My daughter LOVES it and for a kid that plays outside all the time (seriously, she never wants to play inside) the remodel was worth every single cent.

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Wrapping Up Write Motivation

Write Motivation goals:
1. Line by line edit third Nether Book.(Finished). 2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Finished). 3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month) 4. Blog at least twice a week. (I did my best). 5. Comment on more blogs. (FAIL)!
All in all I feel accomplished. I am super fail at commenting on blogs. However, I want all of you to know I do read them. It is part of my daily routine (usually while eating breakfast). So just know you've officially been stalked and I love you!
My biggest goal was to get the third Nether book off to the editor and ready for publishing in late June or early July. I succeeded in that and I'm very happy about it! What's up next? I won't lie. I have no hard deadlines until 2014. I am taking the rest of the year off to just write casually before and after my baby girl is born. When I have time, feel inspired, or need to stay sane. It's a weird feeling not having a pressing deadline. The sense of freedo…

Things I Am In Love With Lately

Number One:

Dracula on NBC
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I have a long time love with all things Dracula. I can't even count all the different versions I have of the Bram Stoker novel. So when NBC decided to make a period paranormal drama out of it, I had to check it out. I fell in love, hard. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays the cold and calculating count Dracula and I tell you what, he could nibble on my veins any day. Jonathan and I go way back. I have loved everything he has been in (especially the Tudors) so combine his hotness and my love of good old Drac and BANG, you've got yourself a swoon fest. The acting is great, the story line is legend with a nice new spin on things, and the music...
...the music is just slap you in the face stunning and inspiring. Who is the composer you ask? Another one of my favorites, Mr. Trevor Morris. Here is a nice little clip:
