MUCH better!

This baby used to be my Mom's. (OH, what a surprise,right?!)

It's stinkin' OLD, like MUMMY old! Just like ME....EEEKKKK! I used to plop my booty down in front of it and chow down on carrots and peanut butter with my Big Bro (in comes Big Bro!)

while we watched I Love Lucy reruns.


Okay, so back on track. First things first, I used the doors that were falling off to make these. REMEMBER?

Cupboard Door Picture Frame

and my
Little Faux window thingy

After the poor thing screamed out from all the tearing and sanding it suffered, it now sings out "FABULOUSNESS"! WHOOO HOOO!

If it could talk, it would totally thank me for all the torture I put it through. (No prob homey!)
I LOVE me some paint, that's FO SHO! It looks SO MUCH BETTER! Now my little Man sits his little booty down in front of it as he challenges the whole family to games of Madden 11. This HAS to stay in the many booties have been parked in front of it it should be considered a family heirloom. LOVE THAT!

Our {Suite} Journal

It can get pretty crazy around here! Crackers and jelly crunched into the carpets, A puddle of somethin' or other on the floor, pee everywhere but IN the toilet, dishes in the bathtub, dirty clothes trailing down the hall way, salt ALL OVER THE PLACE,

lotion rubbed into the leather couches....I can go FOREVER! I'm havin' that feeling of being overwhelmed again friends! PLEASE TELL ME I'M NOT ALONE! Okay, SOO, I have always LOVED Flylady (she's one fly lady!). Right before I had my third baby I was on a schedule and my house was in complete order. I loved it. It was like the house ran itself. WELL people, NOT NO MO!! I'm SO off schedule and my house feels like it's falling apart. Why am I barfing all of this on you? Cause I'm totally ready to "fly" again! I'm ready to get this house back under control! If you are needing a little somethin' to kick you in the booty, here ya go...KICK! I'm sharing with you the beginnings of Our {Suite} Journal.

To start I needed to figure out a routine. I will post mine so you can get an idea. I have a routine set for each part of the day. I like having it all set out so I can keep on task. If I don't follow it completely IT'S OKAY!

Here is my before breakfast routine:

Here is my after Boys are off to school routine:

AND my routine with my little girl:

Then, My After School Routine:

Last, my Before Bed Routine:

I'm excited to put these babies into action! I will be back later with more of Our {Suite} Journal.

Suite Tut: Do you know where your keys are?

Call me "MISS I CAN'T FIND MY KEYS OF AMERICA"! I am ALWAYS losing my darn keys(more like I'm losing my brain!). When I was little, I always lost my house key and I became the professional window breaker-inerererer by age 8. You'd think I'd remember to at least leave my window unlocked so I wouldn't have to completely remove my window EVERY TIME! I totally panic even to this day when I am locked out. I think I have conditioned my self into thinking it is the worst thing EVER!
WELL, do you blame me? It's hard to climb into a tiny window with large hips! After my most recent episode of a major key lose, due to my 2 year old...I have had a key holder plan in the works. I finally finished it. YAY! Hey Stac, Mags, aren't you so proud of me?! I will NEVER lose my keys or anyone elses keys, ever again! STOP THAT, UMMHMMMM, I total heard what you said!

Meet, not only my new best friend,the best invention ever....A key holder:) GENIUS!

I have to give props to a couple fellow bloggers that inspired me, Brown Paper Packages and Sweet Daisy Designs, THANK YOU!
What you need:

Old frame from Momma

A piece of wood cut to the size of the frame. I used the pretty picture as my template.

More wood cut to the size of 2x2
Pictures trimmed to fit on the wood with a little space around the edges.

Here's what ya do! Paint your small wood blocks with the color you likie. I sanded the edges when I was done.

I also sanded the edges of my pictures too. Then decoupage the pictures to the blocks. Let them dry.

WASH and paint your cute frame. I used a regular black craft paint and scuffed it up a bit once it dried.

Next, I covered the large piece of wood with a fabric that matches my jade paint color. You could also use scrapbook paper and it would be super cute too.

Hot glue the small photo blocks onto the larger piece of wood like this.

Now to hold the keys...I used horse shoe nails. You can purchase them at your local feed store. I tied a cute black fabric and twine around each nail for fun!

I TOTALLY forgot to get a picture of my metal before. OH WELL! I found a small sheet of 5x7 metal at Lowes in the roof section for like $.60. SUWEET DEAL! I used my scissors (I KNOW!) cut a strip of it off for my quote. "Happiness, the KEY to family". Then, at Wally world, I found these upholstery brads for under a dollar.

I used two of these to attach my metal strip. I ended up pre nailing through the metal and wood so the brad would go through easily.

I popped it into the frame and here it is again all finished!

I can't wait to put it to work!

NOW, I have one question for you...DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR KEYS ARE? I DON'T:)
