making a home.

brian is out of town for a week. we are half way through and i’m happy to say things have gone really well. i’m thankful that i feel so safe and comfortable in our new house so quickly. awesome answer to prayer. so like many times when brian is away the creativity is level is flowing extra high and lots of projects get done. i did some decorating this weekend and it was so fun. i like what i have so far but you know there is always more to be done and that is what is so great about decorating….a constant process!

the kids and i made a trip to good will and bought these for $15.


i disassembled them and painted them and several others we had.

in one room i made this collage with some of the pictures i ordered from mpix.

also picked up a tray and wooden candle stick from goodwill, did some painting and gluing. added the paint can to add some weight while it was drying.

and came up with this. i got this easy idea from my friend danielle. i added some colored pom poms for color. these also are great to be counted, lined up, made into shapes and most often thrown at each other:)

in our entry way i did this. love how the enlargements turned out.

also did some decorating on the table, not completely happy with this yet but once again…it’s a process.

gotta love the official “time out” chair in the pic:)

so that is it for now.
