A Note from Tina | №8

Hello There! 

Welcome to 'A Note from Tina'. A monthly note where you can catch-up on all the projects, d.i.y.s, crafts, recipes, and life here at Maples & Stone. I'll also throw in favorite idas, inspiration, small businesses, home decor, recipes, instagram feeds, favorite purchases, etc or get on my soapbox about the price of eggs and/or social media! So grab your favorite drink and join me for a few. Thank you for being here! 

• Life

The end of February is here! Which means we're that much closer to Spring and Easter!

 We spent the first part or should I say weekend in February moving our extra furniture into a larger storage unit. My son 'J' (truck driver) has a few pieces of furniture in there and our youngest son 'M' has an engine!  So you can see why the larger storage! 

In April 2023 (3 months after my daddy passed away) my mom was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She was doing really good, but was admitted back into Duke University Hospital. Mom was released on Valentine's Day into home hospice care. 

In last months 'a note from Tina' I posted projects we wanted to work on. Below is the list of what we finished, anything left will be carried over to March.
