What We've Been Up To

Life is starting to fall into a normal routine.  Cam works from 6am-5pm, while I go to the gym, clean and soak up some sun :) (I think I have the better end of the deal)  I am still job hunting though, in hopes of finding one soon!

We had a busy weekend which ended on Sunday with a 3 hour drive to Wyomming to see my sister and her husband...  We crashed my brother-in-law's family picnic but they gladly welcomed us :)

Last week Cam and I went to this place we discovered called SPLASH.  An teacher gives you step by step  instructions on how to paint her picture.

The finished product! Cam loves painting so much he took on the task of painting our kitchen red... it's almost finished which means I can get my kitchen back in order..  pictures to come soon!

thanks for reading :)

Homemade Wreath

So I really wanted a wreath for my front door and headed out to Michael's for the supplies... Unfortunately the wreath I wanted to make would have cost about $30

Luckily the wreath I made only set me back $6.00 thanks to the good old DOLLAR TREE 
I bought two thin grapvine wreaths and wired them together. Then I spent an hour or two cutting, jamming and wiring little flowers into place.  Gotta love the dollar tree, who knew it contained so many fake flowers?

Another afternoon project was painting some labels onto my canisters... the plain white container needed some improvement.  Using carbon paper I traced the letters onto the canister, painted it and sealed it with a protective spray.  It turned out just like I hoped it would!

Thanks for stopping by

Memorial Day Weekend

So this is my first post from my new home in Colorado! It's definately a big change from Pennsylvania but i'm starting to meet people and am getting adjusted.  We had the pleasure of hosting Cameron's parents for the long memorial day weekend.

This photo was taken on our way to the top of pikes peak.. the view was breathtaking!

In honor of memorial day we made mini fruit pizzas that Cameron so patriotically decorated

My craft fingers are tingling and I've finally found the time to start a few crafts.  These flag blocks were inspired by a tutorial from Brown Paper Packages.  Army, memorial day, 4th of july.... I thought it was fitting to set in the house for the next few months. 

Thanks for reading!
