Blog Makeover

Yeah, finally finished! It didn't take very long to get this done today...well, once I was done playing around taking pictures. My husband thinks I'm a nut! He still doesn't understand why I was taking pictures of a "bunch of stuff". Oh well, I like how it turned out, so we're all good =)
Nope, your in the right place...
I just got tired of all the dark colors on my blog, so I decided to brighten it up a bit. I thought with the new year I would try a new look. I've pretty much had the same design since I decided to start a blog or since my daughter decided I should start a blog.( I have enjoyed blogging in my spare time ever since.)
You'll have to forgive me ...I'm still working on the header. I'm not one that's very savvy with a computer. Its been a while since I've made the last one and I think, if I remember right, after messing with it for several hours I figured out how to size it by accident. I have no idea why I thought it would be easier for me this time around. Any way, it should be finished soon. I'm pretty sure I have it figured out, I just have to add a few more details and tah dah ....done!
Hoping you all will like the new look....its done in my favorite colors.

Whimsical Ceramic Tile Coasters

What would we ever do without Mod Podge? These are some ceramic tiles that my mom had left over from re-doing her bathroom. We chose some travel scrapbook papers and some stickers for decorating the tiles. Mod podged them on, and clear coated them after they had time to dry. I love these!! They turned out awesome. I love the bold colors and the whimsical theme. We had fun making these together & were thinking this would be great for a girls night party.

Earth Tones

We moved my daughter right before Christmas. There is still some unpacking to do and of course decorating is always an on-going project. Today we decorated with some natural branches that she went out and cut herself. She chose earth tone colors and other natural accents for her loft bedroom that over looks the living room. As you enter the loft we added three branches that are sprayed with a clear coat that has sparkly glitter dust...they turned out really cute. It keeps them looking natural but still added just a bit of sparkle when they catch the light. Carmen was lounging on her bed while we did all the work...the cats love that she has sheer curtains surrounding her bed, Its like a little hide-away.

Icy Morning

I went out to warm the car up to take my son to school and my car was frozen solid, totally encased in a clear sheet of ice. So who do you always call for a mini crisis, mom! Knowing my son had a way to school it was sorta funny. Im not sure why, but my car was frozen shut for three days. I thought for sure the afternoon sun would have melted the ice, but it was to thick from the rain and sleet the night before. What ever managed to melt during the day kept re-freezing at night. I seemed to be the only one having this problem...go figure. Every one else's cars seemed to do ok including my husbands. In spite of all the ice, it was a gorgeous chilly morning, the light reflected off every surface ...perfect for curling up with a warm cuppa coffee.
