It started with the table…

Our kitchen table was a hand me down from my parents, like a lot of things in our house which are hand me downs, bought on Craigslist or DIY. It was basically a natural stain with no real finish on it, so after years of having the girls eat at the table and me rub it down it was looking pretty tired. With the end of summer and our gorgeous weather I realized I had better get on the project of refinishing it or I’d have to wait another year.

A little bit about me

Hello!

I’m Sarah, I thought that I would introduce myself for people that don’t already know me. I live in Portland Oregon and have my whole life. I have been married to my best friend Mike since 2007, we started dating when we were 18/19 and have been together ever since. We have three great kids, Lilly who is energetic and so sweet is four and a half. Mia, who currently is mid her terrible twos and shows it but is also very fun is two and a half. Lastly we have my amazing baby Carver! he is 9 months old and is the best babe ever!

My house is a bit wild, with kids every where, stuff everywhere, a big dog, a fluffy cat and usually some sort of project or craft that I am attempting to do taking over part of the kitchen. I love to cook, garden, read, crochet, sew, make jewelry, I’m newly taking a ceramics class and am pretty much interested in any sort of craft. I love traveling around Portland and have my favorite places to go but am also trying to expand my repertoire (said in fancy accent) and try some new stuff.

I’ve been interested in starting a blog for a while but have been busy having babies, now that they are a bit older I’m thinking I might be able to get it together. Plus I have a lot of fun doing what we do and would love to inspire others to get creative too!

That’s it for now but I’m sure there’s more!
