Progress Plans Progress Plans

So our lives are almost all packed up... well let me retract that statement... MOST of Jeremy's life is packed up and some of mine is. I cannot believe Settlement is only one week away!! I feel like my "ToDo" list just keeps getting longer and longer!! But it's okay. I just keep reminding myself all of the stress is totally worth it and we'll be out of the apartment and into our new home by mid-December.

We got to go check out the basement and bathroom over the weekend!!

All of the dry wall is up and it's starting to look like a real space!!

Over the weekend we also went out and checked out some sofas. Unfortunately, the original sofa we picked out is WAY TOO BIG! So I think we're going to opt for this one instead. The only problem is the color. I like brown and Jeremy likes green. Which do you like??? [Please don't hold my horrible photo skills against me!!]

The new bathroom sink and faucet is installed and looking great!!

Now we just need to find a new mirror and some lights to complete the update! I've been keeping my eye open for a mirror but haven't found the perfect one yet!! I'm also undecided on a paint color!?!

I think we've also decided on the paint color for the dining room!! What do you think?

I'm undecided on the exact color for the living room but I know its going to be in the tan family. Oh and I saw this picture on Rocky Bella's site and automatically fell in love!!!! This will be in my living room... or well some version of it!!

So many decisions!!! So many decisions!!!

Enjoy, Amanda


It's a big day in Blogland for Scribbled Sentences!

One of my absolute favorite craft websites is Dollar Store Crafts and can you believe me surprise when I checked it out today and saw that I was featured in a post on Sunday for my Makeup Bag Tutorial!!!! This is a huge personal accomplishment. It gets even better!! Joanne from Ready, Set, Craft! used the tutorial to create her own makeup bag!!

Doesn't it look great?! I love the fabric she used.

Has anyone else found the tutorial helpful?? I'd love to see pictures of your finished products!! Be sure to leave comments and become a follower! [We all know how much fun it is to get a new follower!]

Thanks to those of you out there reading! I hope you all find some inspiration and entertainment in my blog. If you have any suggestions on how to make it better I'd love to hear them.

Enjoy, Amanda


Overwhelmed?! Stressed?! Anxious?! I'm ready to move already!

I've decided I don't want my blog to be put on the back burner while this new and amazing part of our lives is happening. And more importantly the fact that this weekend I'll be packing up all of my craft and sewing supplies and they'll be sitting in boxes for who knows how long is making me a bit nervous!! I still need to be creative and the fact that I've been consumed with paperwork and thoughts of the house and not sewing/crafting is starting to drive me nuts!

This week I dove head first into the blogland of interior design and furniture refinishing. I have high hopes that our new home will one day be as nicely decorated as some that I've seen this week. Although, reading posts and looking at pictures has me more and more anxious to just get settlement over with so I can be moved in and making our new house home.

Thankfully, the next few weeks are packed full of plans [and my BIRTHDAY on November 21] so I won't have too much time to sit around and day dream. We found out earlier this week we will be settling on November 25th [keep your fingers crossed nothing gets pushed back]. Then it's Thanksgiving, Black Friday SHOPPING, our first annual "Friends Thanksgiving Dinner" [hosted by Vicki], Raven's vs Steeler's [thanks for my birthday present Vicki], and then it's packing and moving!!

I'm actually super excited for this weekend. Tonight should be nice and relaxing. Tomorrow morning I'm waking up bright and early to go shopping with my mom. Later in the afternoon Jeremy and I are going over to the new house to drop off our ceiling fan to be installed and check out the bathroom and dry wall.

I know I know... I didn't give you too many details in the last post so you're probably wondering why we have to check the bathroom and dry wall out. Well, the sellers are being super generous and did some upgrades to the bathroom and basement for us. [If you're reading this before I get home from work I apologize I am uploading pics when I get home. I unfortunately don't have my camera cord with me.]

The bathroom had a slight leaning issue... it seems the floor kind of leaned down towards the sink and toilet. It gave me vertigo instantly. Well the sellers tore up the flooring leveled it off and put in a new sink and faucet for us. I wish I had taken a picture while the works was going on to share. Well we got word it's all complete so I can't wait to go see it.

The basement was in the very beginning stages of being finished when the sellers decided they wanted to buy a new house. Lucky us, the sellers told us they'd finish the basement for us!! Tomorrow we get to go over and see the finished product!!!

I hope to have more pictures to share with you since this is pretty lacking!!



BIG things have been happening!

A girl can dream, right?

Please excuse my extended absence. Big things have been happening in our world. It looks like we're buying a HOUSE!!! This has been the quickest decision I think Jeremy and I have EVER made, not to mention the BIGGEST decision we've ever made. With that being said the past two weeks have been consumed with signing many many many papers, writing checks, having inspections, and catalogue browsing [my favorite part]!!!

I hope to continue blogging. I have tons of projects in my mind for the new house [one that has already turned out as a big fat failure] that I want to share with you. But please excuse my lack of crafty blogs... it looks like my craft supplies will be packed up soon. Maybe I can go back through my archives and come up with some projects I haven't share yet.

So back to the exciting news!! If everything works out as planned. Jeremy and I will settle on the 30th of November and be happy homeowners!! Our new home is a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, finished basement [well half of it is], end of the group town house!! I'm so excited to decorate!!

I hope to share more with you soon!!
