Black Friday decorating!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend! Hope everyone had a fabulous Turkey day. Well despite the commercial pressure to get out Friday for crazy shopping I slept in until 10, my wonderful husband got up with Lyla and started prepping the living room so we could paint. I'm really happy with how the color came out. Now we just need to find some working couches that will match, I want to go with either yellow, brown, off white/khaki or gray. We'll see but until then here is what it looks like with the new paint.This sofa make's me want to learn how to reupholster furniture! AMAZING! I LOVE IT!

fall accordion book

First of all Happy B-day to my Momma And baby brother Skylar. I'm so glad you were both born today and that God put you both in my life. You both bring me so much joy and happiness!

This is the fall picture project I was talking about. I did 4 4x6 digital scrapbook pages and attached them in an accordion book style. Then I decorated the cover and sent them as gifts to those I love. Hope they like them, and get them before seeing this. I will take picture of the actual project and would like to have a digital download at sometime but I am still figuring out how exactly to do that.Also my Church showed this video on Sunday and it was amazing, convicting, challenging and just all around awesome. Makes you want to be a part of the change.

Happy Monday!

I Heart Paint!

We had so much fun today getting messy! Lyla loved painting with the homemade edible paint we made and the weather was perfect for it. Here are some of my favorite shots.

I will be scrapping these at some point but probably not for a little while since I am currently super busy. Right now I am working on a fall picture project and also have a big final logo project due in my graphic design class. The Holiday season is coming and I am getting so excited about it this year. If you want to make these paints at home it is super easy.
2 cups Flour
2 cups cool water
mix together then divide in bowls and add food coloring
Have Fun!
