The Busy Bug

April 20, 2011


Hi everyone,  we are back from Puerto Rico and getting back into our normal routine!!  Boy, do I miss the ocean and the breeze, and the....(I need to stop daydreaming).....
I have made a decision about what direction I would like to take in my life at this moment.  I have been scrapbooking and making cards for awhile now, but there is something else that I really enjoy doing and haven't had much time to do.   That something is decorating, working with wood, gardening, and making my home the home that I would love.  I'm a handy~woman at heart, around my home, and I enjoy learning new ways of updating old furniture and fixing what's broken.    I have so many projects to do around my home and I haven't allowed myself the time to do them.  I will still be crafting and I definitely will be blogging about all my new ventures!  I'll be keeping this blog's name because it describes all the BUSYNESS in my life! :-)....and I hope you all will come along with me, because I have some REALLY FUN STUFF in store!!    Here is what my dear husband gave me for my birthday....other than the trip to Puerto Rico!  I am so excited to start using it!!
It's an Air Compresser, a Finish Nailer Gun, Brad Nailer Gun, and a Crown Stapler.  Now I can work more efficiently with these power tools!  Who knew I would be so excited about these kinds of tools!!!



  1. Awesome gift! Way to go hubby! Very cool that you're going to do some home projects! Can't wait to see! I always have tons of stuff that i want to do around the house, but just never seem to find the time to do it! :( Good luck with all your crafty adventures! :)


  2. Good for you Karen!! Do what you are passionate about. Glad you had a great trip and a happy birthday!


  3. That's some serious machine! I will follow you on your journey. I might learn a thing or two, I would love too get my some stuff done around my house too.
    Good luck!

  4. Nothing better than getting just what you want!! Looking forward to seeing what you do with these awesome tools!! :)

  5. Power tools are AWESOME!!!! Good for you to start doing other things you LOVE to do! :o) My hubby LOVES that stuff so I buy him those things! :O) And he buys me my crafy things! :o) Win-Win if you ask me! Sounds like you have one of the best hubby's a girl could ask for! Can't wait to see what you make.... I think my hubby will actually enjoy seeing a blog just for that!
    So you may end up with a new follower! LOL

  8. What fun! I treated myself to a new air compressor and a table saw this spring--and took back the diamond earrings dh got me for our anniversary! A girl's gotta have priorities. :-)
