New Background! & Work out room before & after

Wow. I stumbled on to For the Love of Cottage blog (which I adore!) and she had a link to the creator of her fabulous background, Aqua Poppy Designs and I have been wandering through her many creative backgrounds. I simply could not choose, there were so many! Here is my choice for now, it's called "summertime". I want to try them ALL!! It was easy, SO easy to do, and her instructions were written with all the details. If you use one of her backgrounds, let me know, so I can take a look!

Okay. I have played on the computer TOO long! I have a new goal to exercise every day, this is day 2, lol. Why do I avoid it? I want to be in that place where I WANT to exercise. I have the equipment that I like, and a space that I enjoy being in, I have lots of loud music to inspire me. Now, I just need the will power and stick-tu-it-tive-ness!

This is my downstairs room, we will call it the "workout room". Last weekend we purchased a new (to us) exercise bike at a yard sale. I didn't think it would fit and after moving things around, it seems like there is actually more room than before. So, enjoy the photos and imagine me HAPPILY exercising to my favorite tunes!

See what I mean? It looks (and feels) bigger. See that door on the right? That's my sewing room/closet. I'll show that space on a future post.

Okay, I'm going, I'm going.


  1. Hi Stephanie,
    I love your new blog look...very the colors. I also love your exercise room...gosh, I wish ours was that big, very nice!
    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I had a lot of fun doing that little binder. It's heavy chipboard that comes add your own paper and embellishments. Sorry about not showing the inside pages, but since it is full of pics of my sisters, I decided not to post the insides.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Isn't that site great?? And easy, and for me that's very important cuz I certainly am no computer whiz. Thanks for the sweet comment.


  3. I love the new look of your site. The colors are great for fall. And your picture is great. You sure don't look like a grandma:))
    Also love the new look of your gym room. It's fun to rearrange and find more room!
