Housewife's Contribution - My New Etsy Shop - Now Open!

I'm soooo excited! I was finally able to get my Etsy shop up and running!

I don't have a lot listed in it right now. There are just a few goodies, but I'm hoping to work on more very soon.

As soon as I get my Dad's birthday gift finished, the laundry done, the dishes washed and our bedroom project done... I can start working on my shop goodies again!

With the help of the hubster, I've decided to name my shop Housewife's Contribution. Why? You may ask.

Well, after reading this...

"Some feminists, and non-feminist economists note that the monetary contribution of housewives' work to society is ignored in standard formulations of economic output, such as GDP or employment figures. Housewives work many unrecorded hours a week, while depending for money on their husbands' employment" ~Quoted from Wikipedia~

I thought it would be perfect!

I've always wanted a way to try and contribute to our household finances. This is my opportunity! I'm super excited!

Please check back. I will be adding more!

Functional Friday Linky Party #27

The last couple of days, I have been super busy around the house and haven't had a chance to work on goodies for my (hopefully soon) Etsy shop. It feels like it's taking forevah!

I'm having one of those weeks months where everything is out of whack and I'm having trouble keeping everything in line.

So, while I get things in order around here, I will be getting my eye google on with all of your projects.

I can't wait to see what you've come up with!

Let's get started with Functional Friday!

If you do not post a link to my party within your post or on your blog, I will not feature you.  Each project/recipe that is featured will be pinned to my Pinterest boards!

Here are a few submissions from last weeks link up that made me want to get all functional and stuff...

Painted Floors - Yes! Please?!

I don't think I will ever have the pleasure of owning my very own painted floor. The hubster loves him some carpet. Plus, I'm not sure that I would have the talent to piece together a room around a floor. I love to create decor pieces and such, but piecing them together in a room... that's a huge issue for me.

So.... in the meantime... I will just get my eye google on with these beauts...

Craft Today... Housework Tomorrow... Picture/Printable

A while back, the hubster and I went to our local Goodwill in search for some goodies to makeover. I found this frame for $1.99! Can you believe it?!
I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with it, but I knew that I had to get it!

Functional Friday Linky Party #26

I have to admit... I was a bit sad when I realized that it was the very last day of the Spring Cleaning Challenge Link Up & Giveaway. I would have loved to join in on this challenge, but once again... I didn't see it until the last minute. *sad face*

That's okay because I'm still excited to go back and read the tips and hopefully one day put them to good use.

However, I won't have my chance to win one of the awesome prizes! Sigh....

That's okay... I'm going to put my happy face on and act like it doesn't bother me one.little.bit...

Oh who am I kidding?! I'm devastated!!! Okay... not devastated, but it sure would have been nice to win one of those prizes for my family.... Sigh...

No worries, though... I'm excited to print out the tips and put them a pretty little binder...

Just in case you would like to read and/or print all the helpful tips... you can click here.

I'm loving the bright Spring colors used for this storage makeover! Shared by Little House in the Big D.

{Guest Post} A New Mother's Battle Against Mesothelioma

I am truly touched by Heather's story and honored that she is sharing her story on my blog!


On November 21, 2005, my world came crashing down around me when I was diagnosed with the highly lethal form of cancer called malignant pleural mesothelioma.  To compound my devastation, my only child was just three and a half months old at the time of my diagnosis. As one of my greatest fears manifested--the fear of facing a life threatening illness--I discovered that I was stronger than I thought I would be.
