I am still alive!

Well, howdy!  I know it has been maybe years since I've posted on this thing (so sorry), but I am still alive, mercifully. 

I do intend to get better at this thing, but teaching is hard y'all.  Seriously.  I spend so much time outside of the regular school day, on weekends, at night... getting stuff done.  Plus, I have had some health issues that have given me anxiety issues that have kept me away as well.  Getting old sucks (but it is a privilege that I am grateful for)!

Anyway, I am thinking maybe I am starting to be in a place where I have a lot already done at school (as it is my 3rd year in 3rd) and I have (hopefully) resolved some of my health issues- which means I might have a little bit of extra free time to devote to this thing and more projects.

Actually I have a TON of new projects to share because I have changed just about everything but the kitchen in my house.  The walls are now light, I have board and batten in the dining and entry, we built a coat rack into our entryway, I bought and stained a new front door (craftsman style because why not?), we added craftsman style trim around our doors and doorways, a complete bedroom makeover, etc. 

So I am planning on taking some pictures (on my not so nice camera-forgive me) and uploading some new posts with all of our projects.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the stuff I've done from my instagram account:
