Hair Bows!

Houston, we have hair!

Little Miss Suzanne has been working hard on her hair -- 3 years! We finally have enough hair that it's getting into her eyes more often so at the Hearts at Home conference I ran across some cute hairbows. Did I buy them?? Oh no! Why buy it if you can make it!!! So, I got a package of alligator clips at Sally's and some ribbon from the $1 bin at Michaels and set to work. This is the first creation which she has agreed to wear and it actually goes quite well with the dress she has on today! Enjoy :-)

...and the painting goes on.

Master Bath


The first pictures were taken before we moved in. About 2 weeks after we moved in, Suzanne sprayed hairspray on the walls :-0 Well, let's just say that hairspray eats contractor paint! Between that and the light repair that still looked patched this room was ready for it's color! The color is Mystical Rome from the Kilz Color Collection. I have some more decorating to do and some things I want to hang on the wall above the tub and replace the hand towels and such.

So there ya go... this weeks project. Next week, Suzanne's room -- a wonderful color called "bubble bath"

Happy Birthday Little Brother

Happy Birthday!

My brother Scott turned 30 this week! Here he is with his son Kyle blowing the candle out on his cookie bouquet.

Here's the cookie bouquet, all assembled before we left the house.

Close up! I made a hammer and saw, footballs, stars, and chocolate 30.

From the party, I wonder where Suzanne gets her gorgeous curls?? (That's Aunt Kim!)

Kitchen Backsplash


It is done! With the assistance of my fabulous neighbors I was able to make my kitchen backsplash ideas a reality! I selected some tiles from Lowes in 5 different colors and then got busy arranging. Eric and Stacy were patient and got me through my first experience with a wet saw without a hitch! Last night we grouted so today I could do the final wipe down and put everything back. I might get addicted to these ubber-cleared off counters! I just love the way the colors pull everything together! One matches the appliances, another the counter... the gold (which Jacob selected) pulls the wheat colored paint you can see in the bay on the left together.
