Happier Notes

On a happier note...

I've found a slew of creative blogs that I'm in love with and am officially motivated to start sewing!!

I've also got a list of projects to complete and completed a major trip to Lowe's to get supplies for some chalkboards and book slings I am going to make for Noah's playroom. Also, got some trim for the walls by the stairs and the rest of the paint so finally, this weekend, I am GOING to complete this stinkin project!!

I am so excited to do these projects and I wish I could take credit for them but I can't! haha. I'll blog about each one as I complete them but here is a list of links for your reading pleasuree..

The chalkboards aren't from a site. 
I just got some old wooden frames from Goodwill, took out the glass, etc and am going to repaint them bright, fun colors.
I bought plywood at Lowes and had them cut it to size for each frame. Now I need to prime and paint it with chalkboard paint and Viola! Adorable chalkboards for Noah to create little paintings in!! I'll put up a picture tutorial once they've been completed.

THIS site is incredible...her photography in and of itself is amazing. I would like to steal the lanterns/pompom idea and put in into blues/creams for his playroom....so adorable!!
I'd also like to make this pallet reading bed once we get into a bigger place.

And this site has an awesome tutorials list!!!



  1. what?! are you serious?! hahaa..just yesterday i got hit with an incredible desire to sew, curtains, shower and windows, tablecloths, runners...etc. my mother just gave me her old sewing machine, and i'm ready to go. not to mention i'm moving again. so the decorating bug is biting as well. sorry i missed your call. :)

  2. Can't wait to see what you do. I like the book sling. I might actually use that idea in my bathroom. :)


I don't hate comments.
