Red and white have always been one of my favorite color combinations (they were even my wedding colors) and I enjoy creating unique home decor so this project was just my style.

Memo, Memo, on the Wall…

Chalkboard projects have been pretty popular for a while now, and although I love to see what other people create with their chalk and their boards, I couldn’t see it as a project that I would enjoy doing.  You see, I kind of hate chalk.  There, I said it.  Yes I’m a mom of two […] Read more…

2013 ~ Thoughts for a New Year

Welcome to 2013! I took a little time off for the holidays and I’ll be back soon with a new project post.  But I wanted to say a few things regarding this upcoming year and this blog.  I realize that I’m still fairly new on this blogging journey, and I’m still learning and trying different […] Read more…
