Well in an effort to come back to my Blog. I have made it one Of my resolutions. I will try to make time to reach out and share what I have been up to more often. I have spent a lot of time over the last year volunteering at 2 animal shelters. I also spent the summer away working at a Girl Scout camp ( I had a blast). I have gone and got Red Cross certified as a Lifeguard and Certified as an Archery Instructor for Girl Scouts. Its been a year of ups and down as most families have but we have pulled thru:)

 My first project I want to show you for the new year is My youngest daughters bed. She had a bunk bed and no longer wanted to have to climb a ladder to get in bed or just lounge . Easy enough i remember browsing on pinterest and seeing people making beds from pallets. I have always thought what a great idea. The search began to find pallets. Unfortunately not as easy as it sounds. After many stores telling me no I finally found one that said sure go ahead and take them:) Thank you Gander Mountain. Although they were larger pallets and not the regular size I could see there potential. I called hubby and he came with is truck as I was driving my jeep and they sure were not going to fit in there.
We loaded them up and hauled them home. Now to design and Build. This is what we made her:)

This is the original size of the pallets on the left we cut them down to 2 equal sizes

We sanded off all the edges that could cause splinters.

She wanted it blue, so Blue it is:)
We used a total of two of the big pallets to create the bed.

We added a lighting system in the bottom base pallets.

This is her finished bed. She has a nice step up and a ledge for storage. 
Great for book bags and dance bags:)

All in all the bed was a hit she loves it. This bed only took 12hrs from start to finish. I started at 8am and finished assembling in her room that night at 8pm. We had a beautiful day so it was a great  work outside project. Paint dried fast which made all the difference:)

I hope you enjoyed my first project I am sharing in 2014. My goal is to share a project each week more if I get on a roll hehe.

I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2014. May all your days be creative!!

My project was made a special card it will actually be going to a special little girl. A designer designed the stamp I used for her to be used by artist to make cards for her. She is very sick and all she wanted was to get cards from people. So he made a stamp set and is giving it away to those that will send a card to the girl. I have the info on my messy art desk and when I find it I will post a link. Until then I hope you enjoy my project.
