Happy Halloween

Have a hauntingly good day....

and young moms remember....
all chocolate should be removed
from your child's treat bag. hehe!


Dollar Store Tray

I wanted a tray for the bathroom counter, so I
took this dollar store frame and gave it a makeover.

I like the 'deep' edges on this frame.

I just cut a pretty piece of paper to fit, added a few
small paper doilies, beads and paper roses.

Voila! Super simple project.

Have a 'simply' creative day!


Studio Cleanup

I'm slowly puttering along, trying to dig
myself out from under the disaster
my studio has been the last few days.

I finally got my work table cleaned off
tonight. I can't seem to function anywhere
in the house, if my studio is a mess.

I'm just waiting for one more shelf,
on the bottom and they'll be finished.

I decided to decoupage vintage sheet
music onto the shelves...and I'm loving it.

Now, I just have to decide exactly
how I want everything.

What are you working on this week?


Home Sweet Home

Hubby started working on the new shelves
in my studio yesterday. Because I had to move
everything from the closet, my room is buried,
which means no space to create right now.

I was so desperate for something to do today,
that I actually did some cleaning!

So, I've been taking pics around the house.

I'm hoping to make it to Lowe's tomorrow
for some paint. But, we're supposed to be
getting snow for the next three days.
I'm sooo not ready for that!

Stay warm and cozy!


Here We Go Again!

My studio is in a shambles again!

The project this time? Another redo.

Do you find, as you work in your studio,
that some things just don't work the way
you thought they would? So, you need a redo?

Or, you just don't have the space you need?

I do.

So, I'm moving a few things around.

I'm not doing anything major...just needed more space
within my 'growing ever smaller' space.

So, hubby is filling my closet with shelves.
The extra storage will be wonderful!

What fun project are you doing today?


Tickled Pink! And a Beautiful Giveaway!

Awhile back, I participated in the Rococo
Fan Swap, hosted by Sonia.

My partner Leslie, had some problems
trying to make the fan, but I decided to wait.

Yesterday, I got my fan. And it was
well worth the wait.

First of all, it's in my favorite color!

And just look at that beautiful fabric
she covered the blades with. *swoon*

It has all the pretty things I love.

I am just tickled pink with my fan!

And it's perfect in my livingroom.

And if that wasn't enough, look at all the pretty
extras she sent me. Ooooooooh!

It feels like my birthday all over again!

What a week! Thank you so much Leslie!
