What time is it?

I found this amazing clock at the DI.
I must say that I fell hard for it.  I love the clean lines
the numbers on the glass.  It totally reminded me
of a clock you might find in a school gym in the 50's
So what else could I do but take a chance on it
and bring it home to meet the family.

Now that it was apart of my life I didn't know just
how to handle it.  I thought of vintage fabric or maybe some
vintage wall paper.  Then in April Conference I heard
"There is only one that she didn’t put with the others.
It is still behind the glass in our kitchen clock.
 It reads, “Jeanene, it is time to tell you I love you.”
It remains there and reminds me of that exceptional daughter of Father in Heaven."
I Loved the saying and I thought of my clock but alas
as life does it got in the way and I forgot all about it.
Until this past June Relief Society Activity
where my RS President Sister Thompson quoted it.

So I decided to act and to act fast before anything could

I sprayed painted the inside and out.

and my amazing friend Megan used her mad cricket skills
to cut out the letters.

Next we used spray adhesive to adhere the letters
and for good measure I modge podge them on.

Don't you love it!!!! I do!!!

Here's a cost run down.
Clock  $8.00
Spray Paint $3.00
(I bought the blue at a store closing for 69 cents)
Paper $3.50
Grand total $14.50

On top of things????

I love my life, I love my kids and I have the most
amazing husband who I also love.
With that said, right now I should be cleaning up
the kitchen, doing some laundry, making dinner and
checking to make sure everything is ready for Sunday.
Oh did I mention I have as of yet not showered.
But alas I am maybe just a little bit in a funk and maybe
I might just be hiding from all that is required of me at this moment
and blogging just to have a few moments to myself.

Stay tuned because I have a project that should be done soon.
In fact I'm going to work on it as soon as all the
 things I listed above are done(well maybe not the shower). 
All I'll say now is it centers around a huge vintage clock
I was luck enough to find at the DI. 
Can't wait to get started and that is all the motivation
I need to finish all I have to, so why am I still blogging?  See ya later. Kem

Bike Trailers?

I have been wanting a bike trailer forever and now that the sun is

starting to shine its time to get more proactive in

finding what is right for me and my 2 little ones

Chariot 2x

I love this one it has a lot of attachments like a cross country skiing and

hiking one. I don't cross country ski but I do love to snow shoe and think that

it might just work for both. But alas it runs over $900 without all the

lovely attachments and I'm pretty sure Justin would have me committed just for

mentioning it.

Which bring us to,

Burley D'lite

This bike trailer also has great attachments like a jogger and

cross counter skiing but at a better price and somewhat better reviews.

It starts at around $580 which while still costly it is worth the price

because its to things in one a trailer and a jogger.

Which is what I'll tell the hubs once I have saved up the money.

I think I'll also paint a picture of laughing children out in nature, of long moonlit

bike rides with our 5 children (maybe I'll leave out the 5 children) and maybe a picnic by a waterfall.

Yup that should do it.


Also how cool is this! If I had but one baby I would

by this in a heartbeat. Maybe down the road when both of them

are older I'll get 2 and those moonlit rides will be with both of us pulling

a laughing child.
Also make sure you come by this Saturday and support the charity yard sale.
