under construction...

Well, school is out! YYYIIPPPEEE! I am so happy that it is now officially summer at our house. Jake has been hanging out with his friends all afternoon. Jake has some of the neatest friends. They remind me of the what my grandpa would have called "good ol' boys." They have been friends for years, and are great kids. Sarah came thru the door today stating that she now will be in the 8th grade!!! I just can't even believe it! She is our baby! I for the most part feel way to young to have these kids in Junior High, High school, and college! Now I do have my days where I feel old!!! That usually happens when I am laying awake waiting for 12:00 to hit. This is Jake's curfew. Nate's is now 12:30. I always know that once 12:00 hits, that 12:30 is coming soon. This is curfew for weekends. I am going to have to set some ground rules for summer. Well, since Sarah is going to be 13 in about 5 weeks she has decided she would like a new look for her bedroom. Kind of a little more grown up, but not to much. First let me confess a little something about myself. Some of you know this, some don't. I could decorate 24/7. This has been a passion of mine for many years. It started out as a hobby. Now it is an on going project. I have a huge love for "home." There is nothing more that I love to do than to make my home feel as warm, loving, inviting, as I possibly can. Steve is always happy when I am working on someone else's home. This means I am not shopping or doing for our house! He is a real trooper. I took some pictures of Sarah's room today. This is more for documentation than anything else. I want her to remember what her room was like. Now we are onto a new look! I will post pictures of our progression.

The pictures are wonderful, can't wait to see more. What a wonderful talent you have for decorating homes. We've hired a decorator because I always say "I'm decorating dumb".°Ü°

Wow. Her room now is a girl's dream world. I can't wait to see the next best thing! And now that I know this about you, I just might have to steal you away for my own decorating needs. I know what I like, but am so not good at putting it together.

and YES! I definitely want to do the cake decorating class sometime, and it would be infinitely more fun to do it with you! Fall sounds great. Don't let me forget!

Oh! that room is darling! You did a great job Michele!! I think it comes a time when every little girl wants a more grown up room, and it's SO heartbreaking to even think about it!

A milestone for Sarah...becoming a teenager. It's only fitting to go for a NEW LOOK in her room, if she's had the same one for years. It's a very cool room, though. I look forward to seeing what you do with it!

I feel the same way with decorating!! That is my thing. I just told my husband that some girls do the scrap book thing, my thing is home decor. I love it. I love going to the stores. Even though I just moved in our home a year ago I am redoing my girls room also. It didn't turn out as well as I had wanted.

Can't wait to see the afters!

I could instantly tell what a great decorator you are and that you must love it, based on those pictures!!

I can't wait to see the finished product!!

I would love to see more pictures of your house. I get my inspiration from seeing other people's homes!! LOL
