Amaze Me Monday #13

Hello Friends,

Here we are…. lucky number 13!!! 

It’s been a long weekend for my family…. we have been stuck indoors, next to a pool, on this glorious spring-like weekend.   

We ended our swim season on a good note and I couldn’t be more proud of my swimmers!  Everyone did their very best!!  It will be nice to have a small break (about 2 months) before we start the summer league.  If you have children of different gender and age ranges, then might I suggest swimming as a sport.  Not only is swimming a wonderful conditioning sport that won’t take a toll on their bodies years later but where else can you drop off all your children in one location!  No more running little Timmy to the ball field and then making a mad dash across town to get little Susie to the dance studio only to repeat an hour or two later to pick them up.  Really????  Why put yourself through all that!  just a thought

Thank you for your support each and every week that you link up to  “Amaze Me Monday” blog party!  I thank you for making it a successful blog party!

Jennifer from Peas & Crayons created a beautiful vintage master bath with a modern twist.

Michelle from Emerald Cove creates a beach themed faux fireplace.  Don’t forget to check out the rest of your beach master bedroom!

Second Time Furniture knocked it out of the ball park with this Shabby Yellow Dresser!  Do you realize the amount of work it take to restore a piece of furniture like this?  Fantastic job, Kim!

Karla at Home made a warm and inviting lounging area using twin mattress!  I have a couple twin mattress in the attic that I’ve been wanting to do the same thing with.  Thanks for the inspiration, Karla.

Milk and Cookies Baby Shower Invitations from Glitter to Gumdrops.  I can think of at least a half a dozen spin off ideas from this oh so cute project.  Thanks Christy!

Love me a good Knock off project and here’s one from The Cre8tive Outlet!
