Just When Things Are on A Role

There are more challenges to being a "retuning" student then I ever thought there could be, and then there is just plain reality. Five months ago when we discussed the possibility of me going back to school we didn't consider all of the possibilities. It sounds great taking classes for a year and then going to vet school in some random state somewhere, and then spending 4 years in the Army who knows where.  It sounded fun, it sounded like and adventure, it sounded so freeing and challenging, and fun, like exploring all the possibilities life has to offer.  And why not we just did fours years in Louisiana we can do anything.

Five months ago before the long drive back to California, I was surrounded with some of greatest people I have ever met. They were people just like me and you, they worked, they had families, they lived the Army life, some even lived in my neighborhood.  So what makes them so great? Why do I consider them some of the greatest people I have ever known? Because they never once judged me.  They looked at me and how I did my job and saw I was good at it.  They talked to me and asked about my family and saw I was doing the best I could.  They accepted me for who I was and saw in me what I could be.  When you are around people like that, one you never want to leave, and two you believe you really can do anything.

Being in that environment makes it really hard adjust to perpetual pessimism that most people have.  Sometime I look around and wonder were the joy has gone.  Why are people so mean.  But I digress, I have learned how to balance work and school, I've learned how to work on my health and fitness while doing both of those. And I've even taught myself chemistry! Just when I'm starting to get the hang of this....

The schools aren't offering the classes I need to take, the ones they are offering are very limited and I'm now on the way bottom of the sign up line. We're moving again, to bigger nicer house, but it's far away from work and school.  My temp job is ending soon.  Which direction do I go now?

I can't answer that right now, I'm going to have to think about this for awhile....

My Return to School Update

Well it's been 4 weeks, 4 very interesting weeks since I've gone back to school! It is very different this time around. First off jumping into second semester Biology and second semester Chemistry after taking 7 years off is not an easy or um smart thing to do, talk about setting yourself up for an uphill battle.  And I'll be honest here, I'm not sure I can do this, I'm not sure I will pass my chem class this semester. It really is true, if you don't use it, you lose it. In order to devote more time to school I have drastically cut back my hours at work, which is helping a lot. I have also started going to office hours and tutoring. So I'm taking all the right steps to getting through this. At home I read, study, and do my homework according to the teacher recommendations, even learning new tricks to studying as I go.

As for being a student again at 32 well that is interesting.  Since most of the classes I need are lower division classes I am taking them at the local community college.  So I am definitely not the only returning student there.  Hey even my husband is there, sometimes we even "hang out" between classes :-)

It is more difficult juggling life though. There is still dinner to made house to be cleaned pets to be taken care of, and thank goodness my husband does all of that or I might have gone crazy by now.  10 years ago if my friends were making plans and I said I had a big test coming up I have to study it wasn't a strange comment, now however it's a little odd, but I'm sure in a few more weeks that will once again become the norm.  I feel guilty about our financial situation, while we have enough to get by I always thought by the time I was 32 I would be able to go on vacations every year, enjoy a nice dinner out now and then, stuff like that.  I just remind my self that the difficulties of right now are for a big pay off in the future.  As for kids well we are still talking about that, I don't want to wait 8 more years to have kids so figuring out how to juggle kids and school is the next big project.

Next week and the week after are the first exams in both my classes, at that point I'll have some idea of the direction of my grades.  Until then it's back to the books!

Thanks for following along with my journey


Antique Decor

One of the upsides to moving back home is the chance to sort through boxes of old stuff.  I know that doesn't sound very exciting but most of these long lost treasures belonged to my gradparents.
I'm not the best at picking design elements for my home so I tried really hard to make things look tasteful and not like a bunch of random items laying around the house.
I'm not sure if any of this is actually antique, or has any real monitary value, but it old and im my opinion interesting.

My grandmother sent me these embroidered framed fllowers when I first moved out. Since the red flower matches the color theme I decided to hang them up. The utensils on the wall above the stove were made to be decorations and not actully used so I added those as well.
These old sewing items would be the perfect decore for a sewing room. Since I don't have one they get a place on my mantle when the year around decore is out.
These next two photos are of completly random items and toys. A few of these items can even be found on ebay.

I don't know if anyone out there reading would consider any of these items decor, but I had a fun time putting them all together.

Change, Change, Change

This year has been a year of change, a lot of change. and through it all I have constantly wondered "when will life be normal?" Well after some long deep thinking I have decided to make some huge changes in my life. Changes that mean there is no normal in he near future.

I have decided to got back to school! Eeekkkk! I have decided to finish my pre-reqs for vet school and give the app process a try. It's a long shot and it's gonna be a long hard road to get there. Hard enough that I haven't told very many people that I'm even giving this a shot.

The next big change is choosing a new job. I have been filling in at my old job for another employees maternaty leave. Looking back on that decision it was a huge mistake, but now that it's nearly over it's time to move forward.

So what is it like going from a 32 year old Army Wife who has a both in a local craft shop to a full time student and part time vet tech?  Well stay tuned this could be an interesting ride!

Pinterest Addiction

There are so many cute things on Pinterest! I have started My Pinterest Virtual Closet lol.  Now I just need the outfits to appear in my closet!

It's Funny the Things You Miss...

I have been missing the military a lot lately. You know the whole the grass is always greener thing. While G was on active duty the disorganization and time commitment drove me crazy. Now that he is with Guard I miss the structure and discipline.

Even in civilian life i look around and wonder how different things would be if there were more discipline and structure. I feel like we live in a society where people have lost respect for superiors, elders, teachers, even being decent to coworkers is no longer something people do. All I hear is what a pain bosses are, how the elderly are too forgetful to work with, teachers are mean, coworkers are jerks. Everyone deserves a little understanding and everyone deserves respect. We are all human beings.  But then again in a society where we tip toe around discipline with friendly reminds, write ups, and no follow through what can you expect but a break down in the chain of command.

Tuned In or Tuned Out

Do you ever get the feeling we are more connected to our electronics then we are to each other? I first considered this when I was bummed that there were no pins on Pinterest or feeds on Facebook in the hour since I had last checked. I considered it again when i tried to make justifications for why I checked my social media so much.

In reality I don't spend a whole lot of time with electronics because I work in a environment that does not allow it. I don't have my cell phone on me at work, and I don't work with computers that have Internet access. But the first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do at night is check my various social media sites.

That alone isn't too bad, what is bad is the amount of time G and I spend in front of the TV. Him watching shows (which I consider dumb) and me on the computer because I don't like what's on TV. We are in the some room side by side and completely tuned out.

That is one of the reasons I am really excited for our weekends away hiking or at the beach. No Internet, no TV just good old human interaction :-) Can you tell I'm looking forward to this weekend!

T-Shirts, Stencils, and Paint

My new favorite craft is painting shirts! Why pay $30 for a workout T when you can make one for a fraction of that.

The following stencils were made by Jen at Stronger With Jen G they are awesome and I'm super excited she sent them to me!  The stencils were made with Silhouette Cameo and sticky vinyl.   
 This is the same stencil, they are generally only used once, but I loved it and very carefully removed it and reused it.
 I <3 burpees! Who doesn't :-)
These shirts came out pretty cool but I did learn a few things in the process.

When I started working on these shirts my first thought was I would use them to work out in.  The black shirt is a Dankin work out shirt from Walmart.  (I had this shirt liked the fit and had worked out in it.  Since it was still pretty new I decided to use it for this project). It's not a silky feeling moisture wicking kind, but the t-shirt feeling kind.  The stencil stuck great but I did learn it's better to dab the paint on vs brushing it on.  Brushing it on causes the stencils to peel up if you aren't super careful. I used soft t-shirt paint.  It's expensive but I have found it holds up better.

I liked how the first shirt came out so much that I decided I wanted one just to wear around and not necessarily workout in it.  I had a grey t-shirt (just a plain old Fruit of the Loom grey t-shirt) and decided to give the stencil a second go.  I had read about a lot spray paint diy t-shirts so this time I used black spry paint, yep just paint from Home Depot. The pros, it covers fast and there no mess to clean up, and it is washable in the washing machine. The cons, you have to cover every bit of shirt not covered by the stencil or you will get paint in unwanted areas and it doesn't hold up to heat in sweat in certain conditions.  I wore my shirt on a very long road trip in a car with no ac sitting in the sunny window.  Where the shirt was wrinkled the paint stuck together.  I think this is a pretty easy way to paint a t-shirt, especially if you are making them for a specific event and don't plan on sweating in a car alllllll day.

Shirt number 3 had it's own challenges. I actually went and bought this shirt because I wanted a moisture wicking tank top (simply because that's the kind of shirt I want to do burpees in, lol). What I didn't think about at the time was color of the shirt vs color of the heart.  Duh, blue or green would have been a better choice.  So I ended up doing everything in white. I wasn't sure if I would have enough paint so I left the heart for last.  And I did run out of paint.  As it turns out the second kind of paint I used let the pink through a little more giving it a slightly different color.  Sticky vinyl stencils don't work as well on the slick fabric.  The B of burpees is an example of where it lifted. I still love this shirt and work out in quite often.

These next shirts I made :-) 

The give blood t-shirt is a regular old Fruit of the Loom t-shirt in neon yellow.  I made these stencils with my Cricut and Freezer paper.  It worked great! I wasn't sure about the whole freezer paper thing but it worked like a charm and it's so much cheaper then vinyl.  The paint is a combination of spray paint and acrylic craft paint.
 And finally the 4th of July tank! This one was all over face book so I decided to give it a try.  The blue is metallic blue spray paint, the red is acyclic craft paint.  This has done great in washing machine and the dryer :-)
 There are so many cool ideas out there and so many different ways to paint things.  Hopefully this has inspired you to make a t-shirt too!

Back to Blogging

To pass the time while waiting to go to work I started to brows the many blogs I follow and I stumbled across this post from A Dose of Page because knee socks are cool it's on compression socks and she is giving away a pair! I want some so bad but they are so dang expensive I haven't invested in a pair. I entered the drawing (even though I don't have the best of luck at winning things) and I'm crossing my fingers I just might win a pair!

Long Time, No Blog: Post Move Check In

Hello everyone!

It's been way too long.  I have missed blogging and of course having things to blog about.  Life is starting to settle out here, or maybe I'm just adapting to the new pace of life.  I'm not sure.

The last time I posted was before our household goods were packed and moved.  That feels like forever ago, and yesterday all at the same time.

That was my first military move, and no matter how many people describe it to you, and no matter how many blogs you read there is just no way to prepare for the craziness.

I was at work when everything was packed, that may or may not have been a good thing. Even if I was home I could not have controlled how things were packed, but at the same time when they packed my delicate hand made guitar shelf I could have said hey that's fragile!  Even so not many things were broken and most that were I was able to repair.  I still wonder if they would have packed some of craft paints and candles.  They packed things with batteries in them and I was told they wouldn't do that.

Getting to California wasn't bad.  We have made the trip so many times now we just hit the road, took our time, and arrived 4 days later.

The hard part was unpacking! It is true they will pack shoes and plates in the same box! It's really difficult when more then half of your stuff has to stay in storage. The only thing you can do is open and unpack every single box and then repack the stuff for storage.  This process didn't go as well as I would have liked, I'm still thinking of things I would like out of a box, but finding one item in a pile of boxes is just not worth it.

There are somethings we are missing, and it's all decor.  I was really upset about this because they are all hand made items that cannot be replaced.  The big M, the Louisiana flag mirror, photos left in frames. None of it is of high monetary value, but none of it can be replaced either. I'm sure someday I will get over it, and might even try to remake some of the items, but until then I'll feel a little sad.

Now that we are in California and settled into our new house, we are realizing that it's not gonna be a good fit for us long term, it's affordable but too small and good 2/3 of our stuff is in boxes.  That means another move is in our future.  When I don't know for sure but probably sooner then I would like.  I mean really who is fan of packing and carrying heavy boxes.

I've managed to squeeze in a few projects this summer and I hope to post about those soon!

Moving Day is Getting Closer :'(

The movers come tomorrow.  They have very restrictive list of things they will pack.  It hurt but I sold a lot of my crafting supplies.  I know I won't have much time when we get home to craft so it's not the end of the world, but it just feels wrong to sell things that took years to accumulate.

I will be working tomorrow so I wont be here when everything is being boxed up.  I'm half worried, half relieved.

Tomorrow afternoon will be very interesting for sure.

"No Poo" Week 4 Update: Transition Complete but the Experiment Continues

Four weeks in and my hair is normal! Woo hoo I am so happy to have normal hair again!!!!
I have found that the mix I need is much stronger then 1tsp to a 8oz of water, I used about 4 tbsp to 8oz of water.

On a side note, I have made some mistakes this week....
My hair started to feel a little dry at the ends.  I read somewhere that this is a common side effect and adding oil would help, how much and what kind I couldn't remember, but as I stood in the shower washing out the baking soda I saw my bottle of grape seed oil and without thinking it through I poured some on the ends of my hair about up to my shoulders.  

I don't recomend ever doing that, it took 5 days to get the oily smell and look out of my hair! What you are supposed to use is Vitamin E or coconut oil.  Grape seed oil is much to oily. I finally got it out by using a little body wash on the oily spot only hoping it wouldn't negate all the progress I had made. 

My next mistake was trying real shampoo again, after the mess with the oil I thought it might be a good idea to restart the process. Ummmmm I can't even describe what my hair felt like after using the shampoo, it was like it was coated in wax, it felt horrible it was even squeaky!  I quickly re-washed with baking soda and finished my routine.

I now have my hair mostly under control.  I need to work on the dryness, after doing some more research of course :-)

If any of you have given the "no poo" method a try I would love the hear from you!

Ok, May Just One More Project Before Moving Day

I am the kind of person that likes to be busy.  If I'm not busy then my mind jumps to all of the things that need to be done in the next few months and starts freaking out. Yes I have tried to work on that but well that's just how my mind works.

Well I have had the last day and half off and my mind has done a lot of going crazy.  But on the up side I have come up with my next project!

Who out there has seen the up-cycled cribs made into benches! I sure have and I want to make one!  The theme I am going with hot pink with black zebra stripes!  Ok so I'm not a girly girl, I don't like pink or animal print stuff, but that stuff is selling like crazy so I'm going with it.

Once again I will state that I love living on an Army post! You can get so much stuff for really cheap.  So far I have bought the perfect pink paint, I already have black on hand, 2x4's left over from an old project, free sheet of plywood, and I'm supposed to be getting the perfect crib parts from a lady here on post as well. So far that's my only hang up, she takes 3 days to get back to me on anything.

But hopefully I can get everything together and this weekend I will create away!

"No Poo" Week 3 Update

Hi there everyone! I am now 3 weeks into my "no poo" trial. For those of you who read my last update, I was pretty discouraged with the results.  My hair was a disaster! It was so nasty that I could not run my fingers through my hair, and if I pressed strands together they would stick like I had glue in my hair.  My head did not itch, and it did not smell greasy. But the only thing I could do with it was keep it up and wear a head band.

Well I did some more reading this past weekend and found that the mix of 1 tsp to 8 oz of water doesn't work for everyone.  Some people mix up paste and find that it works better. When I started this experiment I had read that some people had a hard time getting the baking soda out of their hair once it was washed, so I went with the dilute mixture.  Well 3 weeks in and my hair had not adjusted so it was time for a change.

Today I made a much stronger mixture.  It wasn't a paste, but as I washed my hair I could feel the grit of the baking soda against my scalp.  This time when my hair dried it was soft and fluffy! I also discovered that I did not work the baking soda into the ends of my hair bc when the ends dried they were still sticky.

I can not tell you how relieved I was to have soft hair again!  My plan for the ends is to make the past and get the rest of sticky residue out.  I am hoping that by my week 4 update I will have this all figured out!

This is the top of my head with normal looking hair
 This is the patch (right about my shoulders) that is still sticky

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It's Sunday, the day I usually post a new project, but we are only 23 days away from our move back to California and my crafting room has been packed up and turned into a staging area :-(

So for the time being I am going to put my blog on hold.  I will still come and share my thoughts or ideas, but won't be doing any new projects for awhile.  (Unless of course I fins something awesome I can't resist doing!)

Wish me luck with my baking soda no poo project.  I will updating that story on Thursday 3 weeks in!

FInished Dresser UpCyle

Here is the finished dresser! I love it! If we weren't moving I would totally keep this :-)

Thursday, April 25, 2013


Several months ago I deleted my personal blog.  There were several reasons why.

One I wanted to focus more on this crafting blog.
Two my life really isn't all that interesting.
Three I'm trying to limit the amount of personal information out in Internet land.
Four There's only so many social media sites you can keep up.
Five I don't think I'm that great of a writer

But I digress...
I miss rambling on about the stresses in my life.

Hence the return of the blog!

The next few months is gonna be a little crazy, we are in the process of moving from Louisiana to California.  I have had to really cut back on the number of projects I have going :-( as well as the amount of supplies I have.  I am posting my last new project this week then my posts will shift towards cleaning and packing tips for quite some time.

One of the hard things about this transition is that crafting is my main form of stress relief, so now instead of painting I am job searching and sending out resumes.  Waiting for calls, returning calls, and planning our move.

I miss painting :-(

No Poo Shampoo

Awhile back I posted about making laundry soap and body wash.  I then started using dilute apple cider vinegar as a conditioner, which I absolutely LOVE! Well my next big experiment is baking soda shampoo, or "no poo" in the natural living communities.  After reading about it I decided to give it a try.  I knew it would take awhile for my head to adjust to the lack of chemicals but I was confident I could make it through the transition.  Well I'm a week into it and absolutely hate the way my looks.  Its is so nasty/dirty/caked with goo that I have to keep it up and wear a head band.  I posted about it on the natural living community blog I read and the responses were either "I gave up before I made it though the transition" or "stick with it and you will love it." I also learned the transition can take up to a month :-( I thought it was a week.  Well I am determined to stick with it. I wear my hair up most of the time anyway, and the head band keeps my bangs out of my eyes.  So wish me luck and if you use the "no poo" method I would love to hear how you like it.

The World's MOST Adorable Children's Table

OK I'm sure there are tons and tons of super cute tables out there for children, so is this the world's MOST adorable? Most likely no, BUT it's got to be up there right.  I like the way it turned out so much wish I had a reason to keep it :-( While the list of uses in my last post was pretty good we a moving in a few short weeks so this cute little upcycle needs a new home.

Children's Table Upcycle

I got this little table last week thinking it would be a wonderful upcycle project. It could continue on as a newly refinished children's table, or for those without children it could be a nice little plant stand? End table? Corner table? The ideas are endless! Due to my current color collection I am choosing teal for the top and lime for the legs.  I hope this project turns out well I think it has the potential to be a really nice piece once it's finished.
Stay tuned for the final results Friday :-)

The goal is to make something similar to this, it's gonna be a challenge but I think I can do it.
The templates are made and the boards are cut.  Once coat of stain has been applied. Due to 2 days of furloughs this week, I should be able to get it done and ready for it's new home by Saturday :-0

2x4 Flag

Here is my version of the 2x4 flag :-)
G voted to not distress the edges and add the bow on top.
Now I can't wait for July!
We will be taking a short vacation this weekend so I won't be posting next week, but! I have orders already in and will starting those after vacation.

Happy Easter everyone!

2x4 Fun!

This weeks projects are created from 2x4s! 
Both of these ideas I are gonna be for our house, they have been on the back burner for quite a while while I filled orders.  Since my orders are currently caught up I though this week I'd catch up on these!

Quick Craft: Coffee Mugs

I finally gave custom coffee mugs a try!  Deciding what type of font to use was probably the hardest part of this whole project :-)  I practiced a few times on a piece of paper then wrote on the mugs. I then baked them at 400 degrees for 40 minutes as shown in this tutorial.  Even though it takes some time to bake these and let them cool I decided to post as q quick craft because the amount of time I was actively working on them was about 5 minutes.   
I love the shape of these mugs, I kinda wish I was keeping them :-)

Happy Friday! FInished Flur de lis Bar Stools

Here is the end result of my bar stool up cycle.  Personally I'm not a huge fan of how the distressing came out on the seats, but I posted these for sale and they sold in 30 minutes so the distressing was deffinately wasn't a bad idea :-)
After sanding down the stools I painted the legs a satin black (I love this paint by the way, it's the same paint I used on my coffee table project).  The Flur de lis was done in black and gold and the wood was stained with a dark wood stain.  The tops were then sealed with a matte finish.

I was a little sad to see these go but also really happy they were so well received

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Making Progress :-)

Here are the bar stools with the legs black and the flur de lis solid black, so far I am really pleased with the progress :-)

Bar Stool Up-Cycle

This weeks project is to refinish 2 of these bar stools.  The wood is in great condition, they are sturdy, and don't rock.  The finish isn't the best though so it's time for a cool new makeover.  
I'm considering doing another Flur de lis project.  I want to paint a black Flur de lis on the seat, with the rest of the seat being stained, and the legs painted black.  Time to get to work :-)

Saturday, March 16, 2013


Today was a great day, the sun was shining, there was a light breeze, and it was 77 degrees outside.  I was a prefect day for tanning and I got some time in today :-)

I started my day off with spin class, always a good way to get moving on a Saturday, getting that heart rate up there.  

Once I got home I was able to complete all 3 of my sign orders, they are now wrapped and ready to go to their new homes :-)

I then started up cycling 2 bar stools, the sanding and base coats are done!  

It was a busy and productive day, a perfect Saturday :-)

Friday, March 15, 2013

Think Pawsitive!

I might need to make some of these for my house now!

Is It Really Only Wednesday?

Is it really only Wednesday? The time change this week is really kickin' my butt, how about all of you?

Some of my non-crafting goals this week are to go to the gym everyday, and continue with my healthy eating habits.  So far I have failed on both accounts.  I missed the gym yesterday, and ate horrible yesterday and today.  But tomorrow is a new day! I have packed a healthy lunch and planned a cardio and weight work out for tomorrow evening.

Tomorrow is new day, happy crafting everyone!

Progress is Sllllooooowwww

I have several projects to work on this week so I decided to try making stencils.  Unfortunately it did not work out well, the adhesive was too strong and the stencil ended up stuck to the board.  First I attempted to remove the excess with my fingers, then an exacto knife, both were causing a lot of damage.  I ended up resanding the board and starting over :-(

I definitely recommend testing out these things on a practice board before using them on an order :-)

New Project & Minor Changes

 I have decided to change things up a little bit here at the Wilton Charm Blog.  Due to my new work and school schedule I am going to start posting my new projects on Sundays, and my completed projects on Fridays.  Works in progress will still be posted on random days during the week if I remember to take picture during the process :-)

This week my projects are to make signs like these.  A customer who purchased other items from me sent me these pictures to see if I could do something similar.  Well challenge accepted! This week I will be creating signs like these.
