Gallery Wall

I had a very productive weekend! I made swings, cleaned my art room (which Juniper promptly UNcleaned for me…), finally beat Zelda: Ocarina of Time, planted more things in our garden, helped mow the lawn, went grocery shopping and spray painted a ton of picture frames! I’ve been wanting to do a gallery wall in…

Swings!

Remember these swings I mentioned wanting to make? We finally bought some wood and went for it! Of course, we are cheapos, so we bought whatever was in the discounted scrap wood pile at Menard’s. Which means I couldn’t follow the tutorial exactly because the measurements were all different… It was such an irritating process…

Painting Buddies

I have the cutest painting buddy. Anytime I break out the paints, little miss Juniper is right at my side asking if she can paint with me, and I love it! She likes to draw pictures of her family, with “CRAZY HAIR”. Speaking of crazy hair… Juniper’s hair is out of control. Her bangs are…

Quilted Zipper Pouches

I got a new computer at work the other day and while I was copying all of my files over, I found these snapshots and they made me smile. Last Christmas I made each of my sisters a quilted zipper pouch, and stuck some small presents inside. I had fun coming up with all of…

The Comedian

These kids are so silly, this picture kills me. Flynn still isn’t really talking, but he’s got a few new words! He can now say Hi, Hot, Heart, No, Yeah, and BOOM! I love listening to his tiny voice. Having conversations is my favorite part of having kids, so I am so excited about him…

Flowers and Refrigerators (and Sushi!)

This post is going to be completely random. But I just finished a super stressful day at work and now I’m just waiting for the clock to say 5:00 so I can go home. So random it is!! Last year my husband’s grandparents gave us a bunch of iris bulbs, which we planted along our…

Painting Cats

Just last week, I was talking to my husband about the fact that I’ve never drawn a cat. I’ve drawn a few dogs, but never cats. A lot of people who commented on Amanda’s giveaway mentioned their cats, but obviously the winning painting didn’t include any pets. So when a guy at work asked me…

A Painting for Cara

Remember the giveaway over on Little Lady Little City? Well, I just finished this painting for the winner! Cara and her husband are such a lovely couple, I really enjoyed working on this painting. Oh! Speaking of giveaways, I have yet another one going on right now! I’m a little giveaway obsessed at the moment.…

Grand Galloping Gala

This past Saturday we had the MOST FUN PARTY ever, for no reason at all. We are big Friendship is Magic fans in our house, so we thought it would be fun to throw a Grand Galloping Gala party and invite all of our pony-loving friends. It was ridiculous amounts of fun. Everyone came dressed…
