April in Review 2017

Again, how is it already May?? It seems like I blinked and April was gone! Unfortunately, I’m thinking May will be very similar. You know how it is…concerts, contests, graduations, tests, last days of school…add in to that people coming home from college, baby showers, wedding showers, and more things I’m sure I’m forgetting (which, btw, is my biggest fear – forgetting something 😳 – maybe because it’s happened), and well, the month will soon be over. I pray that I can fully enjoy every minute of every day! So today I’d like to look back and see what we really got accomplished here @frazzledjoy in the month of April.

I love looking back, do you? It helps. When a month flies by so quickly it’s easy to get discouraged about all the things that didn’t get done. Looking back helps you focus on the positive – the things you did get done. So here we go.
When my girlie moved to college we cleared a ton of furniture out of her room. Actually all of it except the bed. I mean really what more does she need on her weekend stays?? We do a lot of furniture swapping around here, how about you? Rather than buy new we just move things around. The bookcase from her room was the right size for my youngest son, but not the right color. A little bit of paint and wax fixed that!
I shared with you a quick tip on how to keep painted shelves looking good. Curious?? Check out my super cheap secret!
Our Master Bedroom was my first ORC project. And, although I like the space, I have kind of fallen out of love with it. I’ve come up with a few ideas to freshen it up a bit, and add a little more wow to the space.
Easter is always a very special time for me personally. A precious time of reflection and remembering what Christ did on the cross. Also included in the post – lots of cute pictures of my kids when they were little. 😉
I came across several pictures of our home from move-in day and I decided to share a fun mash-up of before and after pics! Again, it’s so nice to see all the progress we’ve made!
And to top off the month – I opened my very own Etsy shop! If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, head on over to frazzled JOY design and look around!
See, I feel better all ready! I actually did get stuff done last month!! Now, bring it on May! I’m ready for ya!
