Christmas Tree Outfit & Great Giveaway by Make it, Bake it, Create it

This is a OOAK (one of a kind) Christmas outfit that I made last night, well, not all last night.... I had to finish it up this morning.  It is a size 3T.  Remember, this is the only one like it, so if you're interested, let me know.  I'm selling it for $40.  The outfit includes an adorable pair of ruffle pants made in a green denim and a turtleneck with an appliqued christmas tree

I'll be listing it on my Etsy shop, but you get to see it first!

Also, my friend Naz is hosting a great giveaway on her blog
 I'm not going to tell you what it is... you'll have to see for yourself, but it's AWESOME!

Today it's been a year....

It's been a year since my dad passed away.

The past year really hasn't been much different from the last 10 years.  After my parents divorce, I really didn't see my dad that often.  He had chosen a different life over that of his familys'.  I really only saw him about once a year; sometimes not that often.  However, since last November 8, I have thought of my dad almost every day.

Maybe because he was with us when he passed away.

We opened up our home to care for him the last weeks of his life.  During this time, I got to know him more than I ever had.  For those who knew him, you know he was not a man of many words.  So few words, I spend much of my life wondering if he loved me.  Some in this situation would have turned to other men, drugs, sex, or other dangerous ways to find love, but I was able to get through these tough years by realizing that I would know and experience love from the ultimate father... God.... Abba.  Not to say there was not a deep hurt by the lack of relationship with my earthly father.  I think there are issues that I still haven't completely dealt with.  I no longer question my dad's love for me.  We made peace in the best way we could.   He told me he loved me and that he was proud of me.  Isn't that what every child wants to know?

Even though the circumstances were not ideal, I am so thankful that we were able to give my dad a comfortable place and a loving home to spend his last days.  He had a chance to see his granddaughter everyday.  I think this probably brightened his spirits more than anything else.  He was so proud of her.  I was also able to see my husband in a way that I had never seen him.  The hospice nurses joked with him about how good of a "nurse" he was!  He took care of dad, physically, in ways that I had a hard time doing.

Dad and Elizabeth June 2009

I love you dad.  You are missed.

Goodbye October, Hello November & Home Improvements

Has October seriously already gone?   What happened to my favorite month???  Wow!  And looking back now, not one blog post?

What have I been doing?  Lots and lots of decluttering and home improvement projects.  Now we're asking ourselves "Why didn't we do this 5 years ago?"

Today,  I'll start with pictures of the kitchen.....

I can't believe I'm showing these!  
So cluttered!
Excuse the dirty dishes!
Kitchen counter all prepped for it's makeover. 
 I found this awesome paint at Lowe's made by Rustoleum called Countertop Paint.  This stuff is amazing!   If you ever use it, my advice?  Be sure to wear a mask and use a sponge roller.  It said to use a roller for smooth surfaces which I did, but it left pieces of lint, so my countertops are not perfectly smooth.  Oh well, if we were going to stay here another 5 years I would consider sanding and starting over, but to get it sold, it is fine.

Here it is!  We love it.... AND are asking ourselves why we didn't do this sooner.
You can't see the fridge in the picture, but I assure you, there is not one thing on it.... 
And on top?
