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.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#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…
