You guys!!!  I am home, and happy to report that Amy’s wedding was a MASSIVE success!  I cant wait to show you everything,  you are going to die at the beauty that we were able to pull off with a teeny budget.

I am sure that you have seen this.  And, while I admit, that I have to watch it on mute because this song makes me want to hurt small creatures, I am over the moon in love with every second of it.  Why did Soul Train not exist in my life until now?  It makes me sad over all of those lost years!

New train of thought.  I find myself thinking about all of you and the things that are going on in your project lives.  Are you working on something really fun?  Are you stuck?  Do you need a little motivation?  I want to see them!  It will make me feel better about the neck deep project situation that I am living in….

So what do you say?  Want to play along?  Hashtag #projecttrain so I can give you a cheer of encouragement and possibly a kick in the pants if needs be!

Here is what I am working on:


It is getting real folks.  I cant talk about it yet, because I have to get far enough ahead that it isnt 74 years between updates,  but the dream (or nightmare) of a vintage trailer has come true in the Gubler household.

How about some adorable leather tassled luggage tags that are coming down the pipeline?


(Tim Riggins I love you!)

And just finished up this little sprucefest.  It will be on the blog tomorrow.

Your turn to jump on the #projecttrain (woot woot!) (That was a train whistle woot, not a raise the roof woot.)

Love Your Guts

    That Soul Train dancing puts me in a trance. They just don’t do it like that anymore! So fun!

  • Chelsea 23.06.2014 at 19:37

    All aboard! Chugga, chugga 😉 Can’t wait to see what everyone shares!

  • Kelly Cort 23.06.2014 at 19:45

    Oh my. I haven’t thought of Soul Train in a million years. I smiled and listened the whole way through. And then I turned green….the camper! I want one so bad. Can’t wait to see your magic touch on it. :)

  • savil 23.06.2014 at 19:54

    um, i think you mean stuck, not suck

    • Mandi 24.06.2014 at 14:58

      Yep! Haha thanks for the heads up love!


  • Jennifer 23.06.2014 at 19:57

    Ahhhhhh…I dream about having a vintage trailer. Hoping to one day talk my Hubs into and make it happen! Cant wait to see all the progress on it and live my dream through you. Tim Riggins…swoon!

  • JENNIFER 23.06.2014 at 21:28

    wow, you. are. BRAVE. I can’t imagine the work you’re setting yourself up for. But it will be fun to see what you do with that little camper. I’m sure it will be amazing if you’re doing it! You’re killing me with your sneek peeks–I have to wait til tomorrow to see how your room project turned out? Oh, you are soooo mean!

    Um…Tim Riggins is Mine. :)
    I just started and finished (in the matter of a few weeks) the entire series that is Friday night lights. Sadly, I find myself wondering how the characters are doing and missing them as if they are real. And Tim Riggins. umph.

  • Britt 23.06.2014 at 22:46

    Fun! I just started watching FNL and my cell’s area code is 859 so that luggage tag feels just for me. Apparently Lyla Garrity is from Kentucky…

    • Mandi 24.06.2014 at 14:56

      It is the best show ever right?!

  • Steph @ Crafting in the Rain 23.06.2014 at 22:55

    My husband works in a camper in our backyard! I wish I had a girly one!

  • baileywife 24.06.2014 at 11:41

    I’m currently “updating” our new 1998 camper. It’s not vintage, but the gross 90’s scratchy mauve and blue material is horrible. I’ll be sharing it’s little transformation soon….hopefully, fingers crossed! ~Kim

    • Mandi 24.06.2014 at 14:55

      I am dying to see what you do to it!!

  • Tyra 24.06.2014 at 18:07

    Ha I died when you said you have to listen to it in mute because I feel the same.exact.way about that song…ugh!

  • Jessie 26.06.2014 at 06:47

    My husband and I bought his grandparents 1968 camper just like a week before you announced yours. I finally talked him into glamper style and we picked out fabric. I’m pretty excited about it, there will be a major test of my sewing skills. I will have to get some progress pics going soon!

  • Karen 26.06.2014 at 20:40

    Love it all, but I REALLY love the leather luggage tag. I need to know more. Excuse me for now, I have to go see why you want to hurt small creatures.

  • Krista 28.06.2014 at 00:25
