Chair Rehab

So, I for got to take the actual "before" before pic but here is the almost before pic.





This is a chair I made for my 12 yr old daughters room. It is super cute! didn't take much time at all, its a pretty old chair so we needed to add some extra stuffing and I decided that we would add some heart shaped buttons... oh and best of all this chair cost me a big $5 bill at the Salvation Army!!!!

Baroque Front Door Wreath


This was a quick and easy project!!


A little hot glue, ribbon, circle styrofoam thingy and my little letter!!!
The "C" was originally black and my front door is also black so it required a little spray paint. Wrap the foam in the ribbon add a little glue to secure it and tada ... I love this wreath.. :o)

Our Saturday Adventure!

My baby girl!!

Mayas ice cream she made and was so proud of!
OK Mom stop taking my picture... lol













Goofy child!
Maya and I had lunch at Super Salad or is it Soup or Salad.... Anyway we had lunch together on Saturday and it was a nice lunch. Maya loves this place because I let her get 800 plates of food and of course she only eats about 1/2 of the food she gets but I usually dont have to hear Mom I am hungry for a while after we eat there. After our little lunch we went to hang out next door at Michaels craft store... I LOVE CRAFT STORES!!!!
