Getting Ready for Fall!

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 | Permalink


Yes, I know I am a couple months early but I love fall so much that I am already pulling out my fall decorations.  Yesterday my little sister and I decided to make harvest inspired wreaths for our front doors. 
We ventured to Hobby Lobby to gather fun fall goodies to decorate with. 
Here’s our loot.

We added our family initials to the wreaths.  I wasn’t sure about the color at first but ended up being very happy with my choice.

The final product!  Ready to hang on my front door and welcome the Fall season!

Pinterest Craft

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 | Permalink


I finally finished a “craft” that I’m borderline proud of.  It didn’t turn out PERFECT but it turn out good enough to display.  It was my sister’s idea… something she found on Pinterest and wanted to try so we did!
Here are the supplies…

12 x 12 canvas and scrapbook paper… Mod Podge and brushes
And since I don’t have a way to cut letters out I had to do the first ones by hand.
This was very time consuming and annoying… I found a better way…
My great friend Adele has a cricket!  So she brought it over and cut out all the cute designs for my pictures.
After I laid out all my canvas and paper I was ready to bust out the Mod Podge.
I even had a volunteer little helper to paint on the glue for me.
After finishing the first one I wasn’t too impressed with my work.  My sister and I sadly decided perhaps we should just give up on crafts… BUT…
We discovered the next morning after all the glue had dried that our project wasn’t a total disaster after all!  I was actually rather pleased with what we ended up with. 
I don’t have a very good camera so I just had to use the one on my blackberry to get a shot of the final display. 
Hope you enjoy seeing what I’ve been working on!

Here’s 5 Things I’m in Love With Right Now…

1. Casio’s Baby-G Watch – This watch is a must have and my newest obsession.  It is multifunctional and has the prettiest face. I found it in the mall and resisted the urge to snatch it up.  I’m so glad I did because I found it online for $35 less!  Perhaps I will just go ahead and order it one day.

2. Owls!  I have recently fallen in love with Owl accessories.  It started when I found these cute earrings in Francesca’s Collections at the beginning of the summer. I went back and got the matching necklace this weekend.

3.  Coral!  I love Coral… coral nail polish… coral accessories… coral shirts… coral shorts.. It’s my new favorite color.  Coupled with navy, turquoise, white, green!  It’s fabulous.
4.  My new hair cut!  I love it.  I took a chance on a new stylist and got lucky.  He was a Master stylist from Chicago that recently moved to AL to take care of his aging mother.  He said he used to work for Jenny Jones as the head make over stylist before her show got cancelled.  He also had his work featured on Oprah.  Now do you belive all that?  He was working out of the JC Penney salon in the Mall.  Some would question his resume but I could care less… I love my new cut and color and will definilty go back. 

5.  Aviators.  I’ll admit I’ve been in love with aviators since I got my first pair of Ray Bans in High School.  Sadly, I lost those sunglasses one day during cheerleading practice and have never replaced them… until now!  While at beach this summer my sister and I took in some retail therapy where I happened on a great little store selling every kind of aviator sunglasses on the market.  I went in with Ray Bans in mind since I am totally branded toward RB’s.  But came out with these perfect Oakleys!  I absolutely love them!
