Family Rules Project

I reignited my love for Picnik last night and finally completed one of the things that’s been on my ever growing to-do list FOREVER …

Our Family Rules Poster!

Unfortunately, the dishes are still in a pile beside the sink.  Ah well – you can’t win them all!

So, take your vote…which one should I print to hang up in our entryway?  Black, Green or Red?

O Christmas Tree…O Christmas Tree

Here’s what happens when you try to capture a good photo of your kids standing still beside the newly decorated Christmas tree…

Funky eh?

Ah well!  At least I got a few good ones of them putting ornaments on.

Riley loved helping!

Nate hanging his ornaments. Notice that Riley even decorated her kitchen by placing a stocking on it!

Can you even begin to imagine THIS being your attic?  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

For some reason, I’m obsessed with lime green walls and dark gray or black

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Well, in my opinion anyway, which is all that matters, right?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this time of year…the cooler weather…sleeping with the windows open…s’mores, apples, chili…and most of all – HALLOWEEN!  My favorite holiday!

And, what better way to spend my day off than shop and decorate for my favorite holiday season?!

Photos of the decor to come soon, but for now, I’ll leave you with a favorite photo of mine from last year…

Ewwww...Pumpkin GOO!

Damn You Pillows – Go To Hell!

Have you ever purchased something you just had to have only to realize that you should’ve spared yourself the misery?

No? Well, I have.  Here are the pillows I love to hate….

Don’t get me wrong, I still love the colors, the pattern, the down feather fluffiness of them…

Then why, you ask?

Because without fail…every night… my beloved pillows end up like this….

All over the floor…recently used to build a fort or used as seating for a tea party or worse yet, used to smack your sister upside the head….

Then, at the end of EVERY NIGHT I have to pick them up off the floor and put them back onto the couch…all the while cursing under my breath… Damn you pillows! Go To Hell!

Getting my craftiness on – take one

I stumbled across the photo below of a reading nook / canopy tent and instantly fell in love.  My daughter, Riley, loves reading books all the time and also loves hiding in our curtains.  Why not combine the two and create her own little piece of paradise?

Let me denote that I am not crafty, by any means.  My philosophy is typically to buy something already made for twice the price because by the time I fail miserably trying to create it myself, I’ve already spent four times as much as I should’ve!

So, here goes nothing…I’ve purchased a hula hoop, curtains, fishing wire, fabric and a bean-bag chair to try and re-create this picture (with slightly different colors).  I’ll post photos once I’m done (as long as no laughing is involved in the outcome).

I recently made a promise to myself to actually finish decorating the house one room at a time.  I guess that means we’re starting with Riley’s room!

Enter craftiness take two…

I purchased a chandelier for her room over a year ago and it’s been in my closet ever since.  I asked hubby to hang it today, so we’re well on our way to making her room complete!
