crafty things

Hi!! I wanted to share some of the crafty, non-paper related things I have been up to lately! I decided that I was sick of the yellow in my kitchen and I needed a new color on the walls! So even though that was the original still isn't quite finished! Of course when I decided that, then all these other ideas started coming to me too! With the help of my good friend Lela I chose a new paint color, 2 actually. Lela suggested doing an accent wall, I love that idea, I was just always too chicken to do it. I picked a creamy caramel type color for the walls and a shade darker for the accent wall. (pics to come soon) Then I thought why not paint the wall where the fireplace is the same as the kitchen walls so it all ties in together! Love how it turned out! Then after talking to another friend of mine I finally felt brave enough to paint my door black. I have wanted to for a long time but again was too chicken. I added a vinyl welcome and I LOVE the way it turned out! Would you believe that I made this?! It was just a plain old piece of wood when I started! Isn't it cool! I have wanted a clock like this for a long time! I finally have it! I love the way this red turned's kinda bright in this picture. It is going to hang in the kitchen on those creamy caramel walls. {hmmm, I just realized that I am calling my walls a creamy caramel, but it's not the stampin' up color...just what it looks like to me!}
thanks for stoppin' in!

Did I scare you? I mean it has been eons since I last posted anything! I miss my blogging and my blogging friends!! Life is just busy and unfortunately blogging is one of those things that gets pushed to the bottom of the "to-do" list all the time! Apparently it is frowned upon to completely neglect your children so that you could be at the computer all the time or making cards and crafty things! Whatever!!! ;) is a "BOO" banner I made. I saw some pictures from convention of a cute one that I wanted to this is my version! I loved using the pennant banner differently than just the typical triangle I had been making all my banners out of. For the BOO letters I just printed out the word in a font I liked and cut it out and added black stickles to it!
I hope you have a wonderful relaxing Sunday!!!
Thank you so much for coming by!
