5 Things I Love Sunday

Since I was a total slacker last Sunday and didn't post my 5 things I love, I decided that I better post it tonight. So here are 5 new things that I love.

Handmade Lamp... Doesn't look handmade does it? I love, love, love the color.

Mod Tree Pillow... I love that the tree is made of felt and the colors of the leaves are AWESOME!
Found here

Urban France Art Photographs... Aren't these colors AMAZING?!?! I think these would look awesome hanging on the walls of my newly painted bedroom.
Found here

Spray Painted 3 Tier Organizer... I was looking on Elsie Flannigan's Project Restyle Flickr and saw this. I don't know why I couldn't think of spray painting my ugly white tiered organizer. It is something that is so easy to do and won't take a ton of time. I also love that you can't see into the drawers of the organizer.

Shelf Restyle... I also found this on the Project Restyle Flickr. I think this would look awesome on my wall with a few scrappy items in it!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. I wish it was longer. I painted my bedroom yesterday and today (a color called Beach Water) and I love it. However, I ran out of paint today doing the 2nd coat. So I have to go back to the hardware store tomorrow morning before work to get another gallon of paint. Sigh. So I am sitting on my bed that is almost in the middle of my room and clutter all around me and it is driving me nuts. I need to finish this paint job and get my room back in shape. Don't worry, I have pictures taken of the mess and once my room is back in order, I will post them.

I haven't scrapbooked this much in a couple months I think! I did this of my cutie patootie niece who really never played with babies, but every once in awhile she would take one for a stroll.
I used a sketch, but I can't remember where I got it from, so if this looks like one of your sketches, thank you!!

Products Used:
Patterned Paper, Stickers: Echo Park
Brown Cardstock: American Crafts

I watched the little Turk Face today while my sister went shopping, again. We were watching Scooby-Doo while laying in my bed this afternoon and I looked over at her and she was out. I snapped a few picture, careful not to wake her. However, when I went to get out of my bed and go scrap, she woke up. Do you like her bangs? She cut them herself yesterday. Well, my sister tried to fix them. I didn't see what it looked like after the fact.
After her nap, I had to take up her little coloring table from our garage so she could do some "scrapping-booking" with me in my room. It was cute how excited she got when she would cut and glue some of my old patterned paper. I tried to get a picture of her, but she refused to let me get one. Oh well, next time because I think she is going to be a little crafter!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I will be back soon with my 5 Things I Love Sunday post!

Did I Really Need This?

Probably not, but I got all this stuff anyways. I went to A Walk Down Memory Lane today after work to get zoo papers and only zoo papers. I walked out with all this stuff and no zoo papers. I got 3 paper packs... I love paper packs... some stamps, and a few single sheets of paper. Why, oh, why does this hobby have to come with such a shopping addiction? I feel as if I need all the newest, latest and greatest stuff out there.

Scrappy Layouts

My church had their monthly scrapbooking night tonight. I was there for 3 hours and I got 2 layouts done. I think that is pretty good for me!

Oh Brooklynn, you are such a silly little girl. I love you to bits though!
Sketch is by PageMaps

Last summer, I wanted to take a nice picture of Brooklynn in front of my stepmom's flowers, but this little girl never will stay still long enough for that to happen. So this picture is what I got. It will have to do until the flowers become pretty enough for me to try again. Isn't she a stinker or what?
Sketch is by So Sketchy!

I hope everyone has a wonderful crafty weekend! I have plans to scrap some more tomorrow and Sunday afternoon I have to watch the Turk Face.

Coming Home

Has anyone seen the new show on Lifetime called "Coming Home"? It is on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. central time. I watched it last night and all I have to say is holy cows they should have warned me that I would need a whole box of tissues. I love that they have created a show that shows the homecomings of the men and women who have/are serving our country. It was awesome to be able to watch those homecomings.

I work at a daycare and there is a 2 year old whose dad is currently deployed. She is a daddy's girl and it breaks my heart to see her miss her daddy so much. Today she was standing in the middle of the room looking sad and I asked her what was wrong and she told me that she wanted her daddy.

As a person who sees the hardships and sadness of a someone who has a family member deployed, I am super happy that there is a show out there that shows the happy returns and the exciting surprises.

If you haven't see last night's episode, make sure you check in next Sunday night. I do have to say that this is the best show out there!

5 Things I Love Sunday

I am going to try to blog more. I really need to get into Elsie's blog love course. Anyways, I am going to start a 5 Things I Love Sunday feature.

Woodland Creatures Bookshelf w/ Bookends... I want this shelf with all the little critters! I want it now! This is the most adorable shelf that I have ever seen. I love all those bookends, they just add that extra cuteness to this already adorable bookshelf.
Found here

Hello Wooden Sign... I love the color of this wooden hello sign. I think that this would look awesome near the front door or above a coat rack.
Found here

Printer's Drawer Jewelry Holder... I don't have many earrings or wear much jewelry, but I love this printer's drawer turned jewelry holder. I also love that this is distressed.
Found here

Tweet Hoot Barn Owls... these are adorable! I want one or two or three in my little scrap corner.
