Sooooo.... I decide to do a complete makeover in my daughters room!!! It was hot pink and black and very cute... but decided to go soft and girly and shabby chic!!! I found this great dresser for a steal and gave it a complete makeover... I L O V E the way it turned out!!! I had this old nightstand and redid it to go with the dresser and transformed this little lamp, too!!! But, my favorite is this picture I created with an old frame I had. It says "Like stardust glistening on fairies wings, Little girls dreams are of magical things" How sweet is that!!!! Lots more to do... make some valances, paint and distress the bed, add some finishing touches... but I really love how this is coming together!!! I'll share the finished product when it's complete!!! Hopefully, very soon!!!!

I haven't been on in a while!!! I've been sick, the kids have been sick and everything else that can go wrong, probably has... But, I'm here and I'm blessed to be here!!!
A friend of mine is redoing her daughters room for her 12th birthday! So, yesterday we decided she needed a fun desk to go in her "new" room. I whipped this one up in no time AND made a custom chair pad to go on the chair! The room turned out beautiful!!! Here's some before and afters! Enjoy........ and Happy Birthday, Becca!!!

I am really loving sewing, lately... I just jump from one craft to the other... So, my best friend wanted a blanket and pillow for her daughter to use for nap time at preschool! I had to make it fun, of course... I love all the colors and the middle is soooooooo soft! She's gonna be napping in style!

I'm loving the pillowcase dresses all the little girls are wearing... So, I thought I'd give it a shot and make one! Of course, I wanted a really cute pillowcase and didn't want to search for one, so I made one myself. Then, I made the dress!! It turned out really cute! And they're so simple to make!

I came across some AmAzInG blogs on this fun little scavenger hunt I went on over at http://thediyshowoff.blogspot.com ... I think I was mostly inspired by Whisper Wood Cottage. The photographs are unbelievable. All the details that are captured are phenominal... It really makes me want to work on my picture taking skills. Go check it out! You'll love it! http://whisperwoodcottage.blogspot.com/

So I had a lady ask me to redo this bedroom set for her 13 year old daughter. She loves skulls and crossbones and funky stuff like that... So, I went right to work... I think it's absolutely "the cutest thing I've ever seen"... It was so fun to do and I can't wait for her to see it. Unfortunately, the before pictures are on my computer that died yesterday, so all I have are the afters... but that's the best part anyway!!!

This is one of my favorite projects!!! It truly went from trash to treasure... A friend of mine told me she put an old desk in the trash, so I went and picked it up.. what a transformation!!! I painted it, added lots of fun paper and some rhinestones... Spray painted the drawer pulls and that's it! The before and after pictures say it all!!!
