OK, so I am such a nerd {and a clutz*}

I won TDC's giveaway and I am freaking out so much that I have to post about it and put a link on facebook, and I am tempted to e-mail everyone I know...  Not just because I WON the giveaway, not just because I never win anything, not just that ABCD images are totally amazing, but because this is the THRIFTY DECOR CHIC we are talking about here... I LURVE her people :)

Now the HARD part...


any inputs?

*I fell down the stairs and I need to whine about how much my foot hurts - waaaaa!

Meeska, Mouska, Mickey Mouse!

Obviously all things Mickey Mouse are a big hit around here.  
Hubby and I bought a cute little Mickey Mouse over the summer for a buck, because it was a 2000 anniversary Mickey and its ummmm 2009! 

And months later I finally remove the tag and find a TREASURE inside!

Perfect Magnet sized circles of the one and only Mickey the Mouse!!!


I love them!

Hubby even loves them!

And, well, someone else loves them too, betcha can't guess who.

Halloween Hair clips

I haven't sold a single Halloween bow and yet I can't. stop. making. them. ahhhhhh!
And it's ok because I love Halloween and hubby hasn't told me I have to stop yet :)
Check out my newest ones:
And my other  Spooooktacular Hair-boos!

Of course listing prices, and any effort towards marketing them might help me sell them - but I am more of a crafty type person than a business person, so if you see something you like make me an offer!!!

I am slow!!  

It takes me a long time to warm up to trends.  

Take damask...
This wasn't an "I hate it type item" but I was just behind.

Now I am a freak for damask.  


I LOVE it. 
I want to wallpaper my whole house in it.

Wasn't that way for me with animal prints.
I HATED animal prints


Now I am warming up to it and even beginning to adore zebra prints.

speaking of warming up...
I am still warming up to leg warmers,
I adore leggings (wasn't always the case)

But this little item I had never even seen or heard of...

Marabou Puffs!

But once I was made aware of them I figured I would try making them!

I just bought a Marabou Boa and cut off a 2 inch{ish} piece, rolled it into a circle and hot glued the ends to a partially lined clip.

Now the true test is if they will hold up to my toddler tornado!
I'll get back to you on that!

They would be so sweet in pigtails!

They remind me of Harry Potter

You know, what Ginny's Pygmy Puff would look like.

A day late and...


registration for more free paint from glidden had to be turned in by yesterday!

My sis told me about it Friday and I thought I could sit on it for a weekend - my notorious procrastinating has once again bit me in the butt!

And I love Glidden!
I have an entire Shelf in my Laundry room closet dedicated to it.

Plus all of my FREE projects I have done from the last giveaway...

Fireplace niche, living room, bedroom, dining room, and my entryway Map Project

I am blue :(

oh blue would have been a fun color


K- I'm done! Plus I made more Halloween Bows and some "puffs"
I will post them very soon, and no more whining from me...

Bad Influence


So my painting adventures must be wearing off on my hubby because when he was home for the weekend he asked for some paint and a foam roller...

I was occupied with other things so I handed it over, only to later find him doing this...

{he is totally saying to me don't you dare take a picture, and you better not blog about this}

What exactly is that he is doing I ask myself...

oh yep- that's what I thought...

I have decided to let it rest for the winter and see how it weathers...
If good, then I will do the other side (because he was about finished when I got these pictures taken). 

The reason I post this on my crafty blog and not my family blog is

A. it won't get e-mailed directly to him when I push publish post; and

B. {hopefully} I can turn it into a crafty before/after; and

C. because this blog is public maybe some vinyl/painting genious will read this and comment on the proper way to paint a vinyl fence so that it looks GOOD and will LAST!

Conference Crocheting

My goal was to keep my hands busy and my mind clear so that I could get the most out of conference without getting on the computer, getting distracted by Audrey's messes or falling asleep.  
When Elder Bednar began speaking I was overwhelmed with memories - the roommate that taught me this blanket was a BYUi graduate who adored Elder Bednar and this was the SAME blanket I learned on 5 years ago :)  
the very same
I don't crochet much but it ended up being the perfect conference activity.  
This is the blanket she gave me for baby #1

I love the sweet little hearts :)

Here is my halfdone one...

(it's purple not gray - I should have probably turned a light on to take the picture!)
