So What are Your New Years Resolutions?

My New Years Resolutions
It seems to be that time of year in which we look back over our year and reflect on the things we set out to accomplish at the beginning of the year and what we actually accomplished by the end of the year. Looking back Month by Month:

January: In January I just wanted to make it through packing and preparing for the move to our new home. I wanted to have a safe birth and missed my hubby fiercely.

February: I fell down after tripping on uneven sidewalk bringing my son to school. The baby was fine but I went into false labor 4 times after that. The house is ready for the baby, because I am too determined not too.

March: Gave Birth to our beautiful healthy baby boy. My hubby was able to come home and spend time with us on paternity leave.

April: Started preparing for our Summer Vacation to Washington D.C. and Connecticut. I also started scheming up a new idea for a blog and began losing time to scrap memories. Graduated with my Bachelors Degree.

May: Successfully saved up for the summer trip and spent the last bit making sure my big boy stayed focused in school.

June: Started my New Blog The Many Adventures of Bran. Went on Vacation and had a blast. Purchased over 90,000 vintage buttons to sell.

July: Life became busy over the summer with both boys home.

August: My Big Boy turned 8 and school started again for both my big boy and I.

September: I turned 30 and life just flies by from here on out, a big huge blur really.

October: Handmade both boys costumes.

November: Enjoyed my Hubby's return and had a wonderful Turkey Day.

December: Had a Beautiful Christmas and became calm for the first time since June.

With 2011 over it was a good year, but an extremely overwhelming. Just chalking it up to being a military wife and a first time learning experience at juggling 2 kids alone. I am proud of where we have come and I plan to do better this year with all aspects of my life. I am challenging myself to sew at least 1 thing a month for myself, being active in all things I take on. Now that We have finally got back into a routine everything is in balance until hubby leaves again, giving me a chance to fine tune my resolutions for next year. What ever you chose to do for your resolutions I hope that this New Year will be bright for all of you. I love that you have stayed with me here so far and I promise to make it even more interesting next year. Now to create my blogging plan and ideas for next year.

Cheers!

Merry Christmas Eve to those who celebrate and Have a beautiful Christmas tomorrow!

courtesy of "The Graphics Fairy"

As many of you are joining me in this busy holiday season, I have fine-tuned and finished my gifts just in time for tomorrow. Now to get my house straightened and wait for my big boy to come home on the 26th from his fathers.

There is nothing more magical to me than to watch the joy of the season in my children's eyes the wonderment of my tiny baby who at 9 months old is loving the lights. I am so truly blessed to have a wonderful family to spend the holidays with. As many of you know I spent all of our first holidays without my hubby as he was serving and the solitude of him being away made it a challenging Christmas last year, but on the eve in which Santa would come on his sleigh and the light of the North Star shining brightly reminded me of the reason for the season, a tiny babe who was born who would be the king of kings that Christmas morn. I am blessed with the joy from the light of that star which somehow touches and sparkles in the eyes of my children reminding me that all will be well and the stresses and challenges of the year before would soon pass and while may linger in the corners of the New Year, they would be trivial and only bloom out of control if I gave it energy.

So here is to new beginnings, goals, and ideas for the New Year.
From my family to yours!

What a week to be Thankful!

As you all know, I have been waiting for my Hubby to come home for what seems like forever! Well, he had a surprise for me! I was not expecting to see him until Tuesday evening of last week and he showed up at the doorstep Sunday night! So that means I disappeared because the most important person in my life came home! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have much to be thankful for. However, amongst the joy there is sadness and a family friend who is like an aunt to us passed while shopping Friday. We are currently in the process of preparing arrangements and a memorial, but soon I will be back as life settles. Hope you all have been well!!
Cheers!

Free Pattern: Jacket in Crochet


Hello Everyone Happy Sunday! I am so excited as my Hubby will be home in 10 days...not like I am counting or anything. So in this month of thanks we reflect on things that we are thankful for. Out of the mouth of my 8 year old big boy, "does this mean that people are not thankful all year round mom?" I told him that it is a time to remember the history of our country and to reflect deeper on the things we take for granted everyday. Today I am thankful to have my family as they remind me of all of the things I am thankful for.

Whew made it out of October alive!!!!

So where did October go? Oh right sewing for others and creating the brand and doing the photography for my mom's etsy store. Also trying to bounce back from a serious cold that took over the household. In great news my hubby comes home on the 22nd I can't wait to see him, hold him, have him home enjoying our boys and preparing for the holiday season. This means more will get done and that is great for the blog :). My little boy has 2 teeth officially and a few more on the way and I received my copy of Sarai's new sewing book and I cannot wait to make new things from it! In the meantime here is a little catch-up from last month.
My Super Hero's The big boy wanted to dress up like super hero's for Halloween

Scout trooper soft armor for my little brother once we really get this baby fine tuned he can join the 501st

The Branding I did for my mom's products and the photography

To boast-my mom formulated this oil just for my poor psoriasis the stuff that has become arthritic Love it it works so well!

This is a tiny miracle in a bottle it just works and always has!

Divine! Yep a Tea bath that is so relaxing and wonderful!!

I have a new sewing machine!

Which means if I ever get enough time in my now very hectic schedule I will be able to sew for my fall challenge. I was very sad to come home and discover my cats made it into my sewing room/bedroom and wreak havoc. They got into everything and destroyed so many things. So this meant rewashing everything, cleaning the room from top to bottom, throwing away three of my fabrics from my challenge because they were ruined, and heartbroken over my sewing machine which they knocked down and you can imagine from there. On top of this very disgruntled moment, I was struggling to get my grade for my first class towards my master's degree. Lets just say not the best October by far. However, I took some time out to make up a camping trip for my oldest boy, as were very disappointed on how the den leader let us down. So this past weekend was very busy and next weekend will be too. Try as I may to sew for me, something else takes up that spot. I am almost done with the boys costumes and I am in the process of creating the soft armor for my brother's scout trooper costume. It has to be realistic for the volunteer work he will do to get scholarships for college. (No Pressure). Hubby will be home around the 19th of next month and that is when I have decided I might be able to sew for me. I have things for the shop that I need to finish and well that is life in the Layton household this month. Here are some pictures from our camping trip enjoy!
My little one is 7 months old now and has a tooth, it popped out during the trip!

my 8 year old big boy


Wonderment


Grill fire, no campfires allowed

Beautiful Transition

Fantastic

My parents 10 man tent!

The Fishing pier by port Canaveral we watched and heard the Disney cruise ship leave!
That is it for today folks sorry it has been dull around here, which usually means it is not dull at home. :)

DIY Tile Bookshelf with mirrors

Hey everyone! Just finished editing the pictures for the DIY and I am in love with my newly re-vamped family bookshelf/game-shelf. I have never tiled a mosaic kind of thing and at 24 tiled a kitchen floor. I love tiles and thought hmmm lets go to the tile store and see what there is to see. A lot of pretty fantastic and expensive tile...I did not let this hinder me in the slightest and started looking for more affordable pretty options and I found an amazing green glass tile on sale for $1.00 per sq foot. and A copper glass tile not on sale for $5.00 per square foot. I just adored the combo of the colors and so $18.00 dollars later I was off to purchase the rest of my supplies and bring it home and think about what to make. This was quite easy as I had a bookshelf that was handed down to me from my parents, I painted it white and pasted a geometrical paper to the inside for my sewing room, but it just did not work for me so I brought it out to the living room to hold our board games it was perfect but hideous in my earthy space. I knew I had spray paint from the teacher appreciation magnets that fit the family rooms colors. I thought hey why not finally use those mirrors I bought at Ikea two years ago (ahem... I watched the movie mirrors and that kind of did me in for a while). So now I present to you a pretty easy DIY of how I created my lovely new bookshelf/game-shelf.
The finished product!
What you will need:
  1. Bookshelf (Hand me down)
  2. Paint or spray paint (from my supply)
  3. tiles $18.00
  4. grout found at craft store for $6.00
  5. tile glue found at Craft store $5.00
  6. nails (invest in better ones mine were a dollar and were horrible)
  7. hammer (From my toolbox)
  8. tape (from my toolbox)
  9. large paper (From my sons room)
  10. ruler (from my desk)
  11. pencil (from my desk)
  12. mirrors or whatever you would like (from my future project box)
  13. Gorilla Glue (Not pictured above)
 At first I could not get the shelves out so I spray painted the insides of the bookshelf an orange color first and let it dry for about an hour or until the paint was no longer tacky.
 Somewhere along the line the shelves popped out and I spray painted them green.

I then set about to attach my mirrors to the bookshelf, here I repeat spring for better nails, but you can use gorilla glue instead like I did and the mirrors are still in place. :) 
 Do not forget to spray the part of the shelf that faces out.
 I tried to space the mirrors as evenly as possible (oh yeah this is where the shelves popped out) So I spray painted the exposed lines orange too.
 I cut out squares large enough to cover the mirrors so they would not get messed up along the way.

After I waited for the paint to dry again, I laid down paper on the orange part and went to down spray painting everything in my green paint.
 Then I set up the bookshelf and let it dry. I did not paint the mirror parts on the side only on the parts that would show including the space between the mirrors.
 While I waited for the bookshelf to dry I played with my tiles and found a design I liked for the mirrors and the top of the bookshelf. It is really important to do this before gluing the tiles down as once the process begins and dries that is it.
Practicing on the top after the paint dried. Than I ran out of daylight and took a break until the next morning. I ended up enjoying the cool evening with my parents having burgers in their back yard.
Sunday Morning I started early gluing all of my tile into place. I had to work in increments letting the each side dry so they would not slide out of place. Note: work on a flat horizontal surface when doing this other wise your tiles will slide down.
See there they are all pretty and glued. Then I had to finish my paper so that is all I could do on Sunday.
This morning and through out the day I grouted the tile. It was really simple once I got the hang of it. Tip: Use a spatula like the ones for icing cake with the rubber end. You can find them at the dollar store, but if you wash it off in between grouting sessions it will stay clean. 
Very important make sure to wipe down the top of the tile. If it looks foggy, I found that this is fine as it will wipe down like dust, but do not leave a thick coat or it wont come off. 
 I let it dry for a few hours and brought it in. It looks so fantastic and really works in the space.
And I did not have to spend $200 or more to get the look either. Truly a fun DIY! There are some areas I need to touch up but for the most part it is finished and in the space being useful.
But wait there is more, I have more green tile, a little bit of grout and some cork....stay tuned for another tile DIY!

Cheers!
