esty listing

I just put this bow up on Etsy. You can find it here.

I've been kinda blaaa lately. Haven't done too much execpt for the Parker School peices. I did get another lady to work for me though, that was a huge plus this weekend! It's our children's pastor from our church...

I should take the dog out for a walk today...maybe all I need is some fresh air.

The weekend

Friday was so relaxing! I got up late, watched all the Oprah's I DVR'd that week, took a nap and went to church. It was a super day! Saturday I went with hubby to show a house. Dropped him off at work and went the salon. After my LONG overdue haircut, I went home to make my new favorite salad, taboli. It's so refeshing- cucumber, onion, lemon juice, parsley...then I made some party mix that I took with me to the ladies night out. Erin of the vintage pearl was a great host and I met lots of fun ladies!

This afternoon the ladies from church met at Pastor Mary's house for a soup & salad. We set around talked for an hour or so. We had a great time! In an hour or so, sis & I are going shopping.

It's been nice not having a huge order hanging over my head...I'll tell you more about on my next post. I want to enjoy the freedom right now...

We're on Etsy

My desgin group, the Boutique Jaynes, are now taking a stab at Etsy! You can find our items by searching Boutique Jaynes when you go the You can find my listings here

What do you think?

So I made this to match fabric that had bumble bees on it. I made it and Matt came in the bow room and asked why I made a roach...

What do you think? A bee or a roach? You can be honest!

Things get done when sis is here

Matt has seemed really movtivated lately to work in the house and Kara is here to help, oh so convenient! Shelves get hung, decorations put up and can you belive Kara & I fixed dinner last night. I's totally shocking! We had pork chops, mashed potatoes, corn and fried okra (yuck!) It's been so long since I'd cooked at home, almost forgot what it was like to sit down to a meal at home!

My newest house purchase...

I've been looking for one of these clocks since we moved into this house! I just love it!

My new employee


Kara moved in with us last week and how convientent, she wanted to help so I hired her! Can't beat having an employee down the hall!

My little sister worked for Norwegian Cruise lines and has been in Hawaii for almost 2 years. After she finished in Dec, she stayed with our parents in KY for awhile. She got an offer to work the Tulsa Airport the end of Jan. and desided to move out here with us. It's been so much fun having her here. I feel like little girls again staying up late and chattering!

If only

this fridge were in my kitchen...

I don't know what the deal is with us and refrigerators! We've been married for 3 years and have a different fridge every year. Granted, they weren't new when we got them, but come on! The first just completly quite. The second would drip...ah...pour water from the freezer to the fridge. When I would open the door, we'd have a mini waterfall.

Our 3rd fridge was given to us by a good freind. An almost new side by side with water and ice in the door- just what we wanted. Right before Christmas, it stopped cooling. We had it checked and said it would be cheaper to get a new one than get it fixed!

Now we're stuck with the waterfall fridge that came from the garage back into the house. We could run out and get a used one again, or wait and pay cash for that dreamy fridge in the picture! I'm waiting for the cash...and mopping up water.

Higher Mr. Matt

Almost three years ago I started keeping 2 boys off and on during the week. Just the other day, one of the boys was over and wanted to play blocks with "Mr. Matt". Block after block, he wanted Mr Matt to make it higher...I don't know who had more fun!

Cough, cough, sniff, sniff

That's what the last couple of days have been for me. Can I just sleep for couple of days? That's all I need to do...

If you're waiting on bow orders, I promise they are coming. I've sat at my bow table for 2 hours and haven't done a thing...sure sign I need to sleep!

the birthday boy...and his wife!

We had a birthday dinner for Matt. We went to Starbucks and relaxed before we headed to dinner with our dear freinds.

After a yummy meal and great conversation he decided that work couldn't wait...we headed to the office at 10pm for him to fax some papers!

Happy Birthday Matt!

It's my husbands 31st birthday! He was treated to a homemade breakfast with balloons and streamers. We're off to dinner tonight with some friends...we'll see if I can't get some pictures of the birthday boy!
