I had a friend order this University of Utah vinyl from me the other day and I loved how it turned out so I thought I would share it with you.  She is making them for Christmas gifts for her friends she is dorming with how cute huh?  I know it is late for Christmas gifts but this is defiantly something you could do all year with any team!!

I thought I would give you an update too.....we are having a little girl!!!  I am so excited my daughter will have a sister.  Every girl needs a sister, I know I love having one, my brothers just don't quite cut it all the time...ha ha!

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!!!

Do it yourself Christmas ornaments

My tree all the past years has been lime green and orange....yes I know odd colors but I get them at an after Christmas sale for so cheap.  I decided this year I wanted a Green and Red tree.... my orange ornaments are big ones....So I decided to spray paint them, glitter them and add rhinestones!!  You could really do this to any ornament as long as it has a smooth surface so the glitter and paint will stick!!

here is before....

I just used a spray paint that will stick to plastic

Once the spray paint dried I sprayed the ornament with a spray adhesive and sprinkled my glitter.  For glitter I found that the brand Sugar Coating worked the best.  Once the glitter was all over I sprayed it again with the spray adhesive to hold the glitter on a little better.

 I then added my rhinestones.  The believe above I purchased at a scrapbook store and for the star i just put them on like that myself!!!

 For this fun one I got double sided adhesive tape...again from the scrapbook store and added white glitter.  I love how much it added...and it is different!!

Photo tips....part 2

One of my favorite things to do it mix up the angles you take pictures from.  It can add some great dimension as well as a new look on a photo.

This photo is taken from standing over the subject!!  This is my little Princess, I just love her

 I love how this one turned out from behind, it really tells a story!

This one is taken from the side....I have to say this kid is so so so cute!!!
 I love photos taken in the distance that are not posed but straight on.  Sometimes a "in the moment" pictures tells more than a posed one!

Holiday Photo Tips....PART 1

I LOVE to take holiday pictures.  Probably for the fact that everyone is together and so much work goes into the prep and of course cause they are so so so fun.  I have taken a love to Photography, it is so fun to try new things and see what the result is!!

For my first tip:

Don't be afraid to Zoom in on the subject.....(now this doesn't always have to be true) but it can make a much more personal photo with less distractions.

 I know my child really really loves Santa...we will hope for different this year!!
You can check out my photography blog too if you would like!!

I am back!  I feel like I have been gone forever.  But I am feeling much better...not normal but better.  I can handle this!  So I have had this window in my garage forever so I decided I needed to use it....I love the simplicity of it and how much it adds!!!  Don't mind my husbands speakers.......they are always his touch to the decorating!!

A Sneak Peak at my Daughters Room

This is her room before...

And below is a start of the NEW could call it my idea of shabby chic.

 I decided to redo my daughters room mainly because I have had so much fun finding old CHEAP furniture and redoing it!!  I love how it all turns out too!  
Sorry I don't have before pictures on all of them.



 I actually found this piece at the DI Thrift store for $7 .... this is the piece that started all the refinishing!

This was my great grandma's head board... I just white washed it...I LOVE IT it is so beautiful and just what the room needs.

I think there needs to be this picture in there too...and possibly a real one too!!  That is if I can convince the husband that his 2 year old daughter needs a chandelier in her room...I don't think my odds are very good.  HA HA

Charm HOLDER!!!


So I have been making these cute charms!! And they were getting thrown in the jewelry box .... They needed a house of their own. So here is my solution....Jewelry Picture Frame! It was so so easy. I found a frame I hadn't used for years and painted it black, drove nails into the back, and wrapped wire around it!! Told you super easy!!!

Bottle Cap Alphabet

I have really really wanted ALPHABET magnets for my fridge. My friend JENNIE inspired me, with her bottle cap addiction.....if you buy 300 of something it is considered an addiction right?? Ha Ha. So I decided I needed cute bottle caps for my fridge! The best part is they are super easy!!

all you need is

Bottle caps
Glue Sitck
Diamond Glaze

Jennie actually had a 1 inch punch I used to cut out the circles which made it super easy. Glue the circles in REALLY REALLY GOOD, add your letters and put on the glaze. After they are dry just apply the magnets to the back and you have super cute fridge magnets!!!

He is now 30!!

Well the party turned out good! I couldn't decide between the wreath and the topiary so I decided to combine the two. And actually I think it was the conversation piece of the party...ha ha!! I ended up making 125 mini cupcakes...they were so good and it worked great to feed people. Plus it only takes 2 cake mixes to make that many!
Yes I know the Party was at the beginning of the week and I am terribly slow to update...but man I have been busy! TODAY was super saturday so I have been getting ready for that....the items I made to come!!

happy 30

So My hubby is turning 30 next week!! So I decided he needed a really really big party so I invited everyone I could think of to come for cake and ice cream! So instead of making a huge cake I thought it would be easier to make mini cupcakes with lots of frosting!! I have a cute video below from You tube. I love this decorating Idea from Ready Set Create and how does that is where my planning has stopped....any other ideas???

Also while I was at her house, we crafted and made these Pottery Barn inspired chalk board rocks...SO FUN!! Thank you JESENIA!!!!!
