25 Things; Well not Quite

Today I'm linking up with Shauna from Perfectly Imperfect.
She just started a linky party called "25 Things".  
The object of the linky is to write 25 random things either about your day or
just whatever is on your mind.  It looks like fun!  Here goes my randomness!

1.  At 1:30 AM yesterday, my cell phone began vibrating.
I had received a text message that read,
"Congratulations, you're a first time auntie".
I was so happy.

2. Today I was so humbled to have made it to the top 12 finalist at Whisper Wood Cottage
for a chance to win a magazine feature.  I was so surprised!
The other projects are beautiful, so I was honored to be part of that list. 
Thank you Whisper Wood Cottage!

4. After missing school for a whole week due to fever and other ailments,
my son is back in class. Do you know what they sent home yesterday?
A letter stating that the Chicken Pox is going around!  Oh no!
Please don't get sick!  My poor baby has been through so much
already, he's just getting over being sick. 

5. I've never had the chicken pox!

6. I am in love with my new homemade iced coffee!
Contains: Coffee, flavored cream, sugar and condensed milk, Yum!
Tip: Instead of ice cubes, use coffee cubes.  Freeze left over coffee!

7.   I'm currently working on my craft room/ office space.
My hubs built a desk out of pallets, wanna see it?
The photo on the top of the post shows a glimpse of the desk.
I'm thinking about painting it, not sure yet.

8. I wanted my walls to be somewhat grey, they are blue!
There's nothing wrong with blue,
but now I have to change my whole decor plans.
I'm not buying another can of paint.

9. I'm trying to figure out how to make a tabbed content navigator widget for this blog,
the less items on my sidebar, the better.

10. I'm baking chocolate chip cookies today!
I will make Valentine's Day treat bags for the kids to exchange at their
Valentine's Day party.  My son prefers toys only, go figure!
But I showed him the special chocolate that mommy is using for the cookies,
white chocolate with red swirls.  "Okay mommy, but also some toys".

11. I finally got my cork board done!  I wrapped my cork board with burlap to make it
look nicer, something similar to this...

12. I'm also working on another fun project for lamps!  I will be posting about that soon, so stay tuned!

13. This morning as I read scripture, this simple reading calmed my heart & soul;
" Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you
as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
John 14:27 NIV

14. I want to start running with my hubs,
I want to transform this house to make it feel like "us".
I want to take a photography class.

15. I am lacking in blog time, I've been so busy with everything else,
that I have to literally squeeze blogging and reading other blogs.

16. I started carrying my makeup in a zip lock bag in my purse.
Yes weird, but now I can find it without having to empty my purse.
My sister will probably say, that's cheap and unstylish,
I know, but I can see through the bag, so it's easy to grab what I need,
it doesn't cost me anything, it keeps my purse clean,
no more spilled powder and it fits easily in my purse.

17. Even though white distilled vinegar works magic on grout, I want to try Grout Bully!


19. My latest work.  I like these so much, I'm thinking about keeping them.

I know it's not 25, but that's all I have for now.
Thank you for reading my randomness!
