Cow Appreciation Day

Lyla made a cow costume using an old pillow case and her handprints as the black spot's she looked so cute.  We love Chick-fil-a and all their promotions and their fresh squeezed lemonade. 
I entered Lyla in the Dress Like a Cow Photo contest, Go here and vote for her!  It's listed under Lyla.

4th of July and other stuff

Well we had a great 4th of July weekend (if you want to hear all the details go to my husband's blog - aka "the writer") I have pretty pictures from Lyla's friends birthday party. It was so cute and all the kids had a blast.
Also I finally got around to hanging up this beautiful art by our very talented friend John Lee - doesn't it look great! The very cool retro bread box was a gift from my friend Karry for my birthday and I use it to keep letters and cards in - it's so cute and one of my favorite home items for sure. I eventually want to take pictures of more of my house - but that requires cleaning and well... who wants to clean in there "free time."
We also painted the office and dragged all the furniture back into place - I of course made my first project the chalk board on the back of the desk. I love how it came out! Chalkboard paint is THE BEST! I needed a place to store the chalk so I recycled a frosting container I was saving (I have gazillions of old containers I save for reuse projects) put paper on it and nailed it to the desk. Perfection!

Happy 1st of July

Wow!  I can't believe it is july already - the summer is flying by!  I have been a little frustrated lately - still waiting for the wall to be finished in my office after the water damage from the bathroom pipe.  And so I am making due on the dining room table, but feeling a little creative block without being in a proper working space.  I will have some new projects to post soon - just need to take photo's and scan things in.  

Here are some recent photo's of me and Lyla that make me happy!  Eating ice cream - yummy!  Since starting south beach I tend to vicariously eat through Lyla!

I want to play around with taking photo's with sparklers!  Loving these one's and feeling inspired to do another crazy photo shoot soon - Tasha you need to come and be my muse and Bekka too!
