I've added a couple new paintings to my etsy shop. Go check them out HERE!
Hopefully I'll get some more up very soon. I forgot how much I love painting!

Decor Day Friday

Looking for new ideas on decorating our room. I've found some sweet ideas (that will be easy to change when we move out) But here's some really cool pics I came across while looking.
 I love seeing random paintings on walls

 This made me laugh!

 Seriously in love with patios like this! When I get my own house I am going to have patio party's all the time!

 Brick walls are one of my fave's

So cozy...

Most. amazing. rug.

This is a really neat idea. I might need to start collecting wooden hangers...

Have a lovely weekend <3

Spring Feaver

Yes I believe we are all feeling it... Everyone seems to be cleaning out their closets and making their yard sale piles.
I was so delighted to find out that my brother and sister-in-law are coming to visit us! I haven't seen them in over two years :( One of the things on my list of goals this year was seeing my brother and I thought that one most likely wouldn't happen, but it is now!

So anyway, we are cleaning out the spare bedroom in my moms house for them which has turned in to a storage/playroom/tv room. We decided to get our bed out of storage and put the other in the spare bedroom. Which has given me MAJOR spring fever. The room we're staying in now (my old room) has a mix of random furniture my mom has found to put in there and a mix of a bunch of my old paintings and stuff. I am finally going to paint and decorate it to look like it all somewhat goes together rather then the hoge-poge mess it is now. I will take before and after pics. ...I just wish i got some before we moved the bed :( I get so excited this time of year to clean out everything that's accumulated over the winter and organize, organize, organize!

Chase will be gone this weekend playing for a band so hopefully I will have time to do a lot of this before he gets back. And still no luck on finding a job... it's discouraging, but I'm still looking and I know God will take care of us like he always does! I'll be back later with DDF.

Happy V-day!

It's such a beautiful day here! I don't even need a jacket to go outside! Perfect day for a hike. I made breakfast for Chase with heart shaped eggs(and burned hashbrowns).  I'll be job searching the rest of the day. Wish me luck!
Do something sweet for someone you love today :)

Home Decor Fridays- Valentines Edition

Happy (almost) Valentines Everyone! Here's a few cute ideas for sharing the love in your home on this holiday... P.S. Most of these are things you can make yourself :)
Ahhh too cute. I love design sponge.
Not crazy about Martha Stewart, but hey, her site has some great ideas. And now a tea party sounds like so much fun! 
dream. room. 

Gotta love the old Polaroid/heart
I want to make one!

So excited for Valentines! We usually don't do much, but I enjoy all the love going around!
 These don't have anything to do with decor, but they were too cute to pass up...

Snow Day

Last night it decided to dump a ton of snow on us
 So this morning Chase and I made a "Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Man"
 Our local newspaper even showed up! hahaha. That makes me realize how small our town really is. So silly...
Isn't he just lovely?

The rest of the day my sister and I painted since it got so cold outside.
(Almost) finished project. I'm glad we got out the painting stuff today. I need to do that more.

Me and my brother might be collaborating to make some new items for my shop. I really hope it works out! Here's a sneak peek...

Also wanted to share a super cute card my mum designed. Love 'em! I am so lucky to have such a creative family <3
Over all it was a wonderful day! Snow days are so much fun :) Wouldn't you agree?

Home Decor Fridays

I am in love with this chair!
Pretty n' pink!
Aren't vintage kitchen appliances just the best thing ever?
The most random picture ever, but this is amazing! I want to do this in Chase's studio when he gets one.
I need this in my back yard! So beautiful...
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Sorry I haven't been able to do this for the past few weeks. It makes me sad, I love looking this stuff up...
Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! I'm making cheesecakes right now for this weekend and Sunday we get to go to Ouray, CO to their hot springs EEEKK! So exciting :)
