Inspiration Workshop {week 2} with Gussy Sews

this weeks prompt at gussy sews was "kitchen"


we are just beginning the process of redoing our kitchen (the pricing out the options step)

we are thinking of moving in the next year or so, so we are looking for the most cost efficient re-do. so, no ideal kitchen for me in this house.

a girl can dream though, right?

when i do imagine my perfect kitchen the first word that pops into my head is


maybe that's because i have three small boys that keep everything so, so dirty!

anyway, here is a gorgeous kitchen that has me swooning!

Inspiration Workshop {week 1} with Gussy Sews

when i saw that gussy (who is an inspiration to me!!) was starting a weekly inspiration workshop, i knew i had to join.

i have been feeling a little overwhelmed lately with the responsibilities of juggling my roles of wife, mother, daughter, friend, crafter, etc., and i think this is just the medicine i need!!

this week's prompt was:


well... i have a home full of beautiful handmade things that i have received over the years, and my boys have many things that i have made for them.

as i was rocking with e, i realized that i always stare at this cross stich on his shelf that my grandmother made for yours truly. it means so much to me to have so many handmade things from her. i miss her so, so much, and these things from her around my house help keep her alive in my life today. she is the one who taught me how to sew and it's her machine that i use each and every day!
