Show and Tell Friday 8

Hello All.

I have learned something about myself this week.

As much as I am a constant multi-tasker, when I am in a creative mode, that is all I am.

Room by room I have re-working my house, especially our guest bedroom which has never really been finished.

The result – PURE. CHAOS. IN. MY.WAKE.

Seriously, I am like a tornado.

I have spent little time on the computer, my kids have not had the greatest meals – in fact one night – they made their own dinners (they chose pretty well though!) and my laundry is piling high.  As I move from room to room, the “stuff” piles follow me.  Stuff goes in, stuff comes out, stuff goes back in, stuff goes back out.

You get the picture.

I have also learned that there is an incredible amount of “stuff” in my garage and basement.

I have been “shopping” there all week and I am amazed I keep finding more stuff.

Note to self – your husband is amazing because he never complains about your hoarding tendencies.

So, now on to the sharing…

Do you feel like we are being bullied by Google?

First they take away Google Friends Connect, then they take away Picnik.  I feel like they are forcing our hand to come to them as opposed to making a product so good we all flock there naturally.   I joined Google+ a bit ago, but know nothing about it and I know I have to jump in and figure it all out.

Mural Maker and More has written a post to get us all started.

Craftberry Bush shared her beautiful mantel including an incredible painting she created


And Virginia Sweet Pea shared this really cute faux patchwork idea.  I think this could be applied to so many things and I thought it was super cute.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  1. I don’t like this Google stuff…when the Friends Connect is over, does that mean we can’t follow blogs? Now you have me wondering how this is all going to affect us…Phew! – Good luck with the cleaning, I thought you were talking about me and the way I clean rooms out.

  2. I am about to start on our kitchen and then redo some of the den, things are about to get really crazy here! So funny I called my grown, computer savvy son on the way home from work today and said, help, what am I gonna do about all these changes for me regarding my blog. He says Mom get with it, Google+ is great, but I feel just the way you do! And I also feel like I am being an old stubborn person, by not wanting to change! Ok, going to check out Craftberry Bush, love those colors!

  3. Thanks so much for featuring me this week!

    I’ve got to read up on Google+. I know not a thing about it and it looks like I’m now forced to learn!

  4. Hi Laura! Thank you SO much for featuring my Google+ series! I know everyone is a bit overwhelmed – myself included – but hopefully if we all work together we can have some fun! There are quite a few great features, or at least what I like, about G+.

    I have no idea how long this series will be. I just keep pluggin’ along and trying to decipher all the geekspeak, ha! Thanks again. Have a wonderful Sunday!

  5. I am a little fed-up with Facebook but am wondering if taking the plunge with Google + will be worth it….
