Coloring Easter Eggs Playdate

Shelby Lynn and I had her friend Ellie and her mom, Amanda over for an Easter Egg coloring party. I wasn't too sure how it would go, but the girls seemed to like it. They definitely liked just playing together after we colored eggs the best, but all in all I think it was pretty sucessful!

PAAS, the best for coloring eggs! And some sticker books that we wound up not using.

Shelby Lynn coloring her eggs, in the beginning the eggs were all pretty and different colors and then she just wanted to them in each color, so several turned brown, lol!

Ellie was so cute, she kept saying I want to color eggs and Amanda told her we are coloring eggs, but I think she thought we were going to use crayons!

What pretty colors (this was before Shelby Lynn decided to put them in more colors!)

I had to share this pic...Shelby Lynn is peeking thru the window at Ellie, they thought this was soooo funny (and so do I)!

Thrifty Decor Chick Strikes Again!

So if I haven't mentioned it before I love

Thrifty Decor Chick !

She has so many fantastic decor ideas that are simple to do if you are short on time! A while back I made some of her

no sew curtains and I loved how they turned out. And this time I attempted the Dream Pantry

Unfortunately I didn't get a before pic, but here is the after!

I hated those wire shelves and Thrifty Decor Chick's simple solution is perfect! And
I loved the idea of using chalkboard paint to label the shelves. I was so excited to get this closet done that I attempted to organize the coat closet. Once again forgot to get the before, but I did remember once I took everything out of the closet:

All this came out of a tiny coat closet, that was amazing enough on its own, but I then was able to organize it into this

My table extention fit perfectly in the top of the closet and made the shelf sturdy to hold seasonal decorations and then I had an old wire shelf and some baskets which I used to store cleaning products! It feels good to be organized!

Fairy Nursery Mural

I went home to Knoxville to meet Zoe Bella and while I was there I was able to finish her Fairy Nursery room. I am pretty please with how it turned out and Melanie was really happy and that is the most important thing! I really enjoy doing this and would love to actual do this for you! If you like what you see and live in Stafford, VA or the surrounding areas and would like a free consultation please feel free to contact me!

This Sassy Fairy is on the wall as you walk in the door, I love that you can see it as you walk down the hall! Her wings have glitter in them!

This sweet fairy is flying over the crib.

Her rocker is in the corner with what we called the "momma fairy" looking out the door. Be sure to click on the pics to see them close up. Once again if you are interested in a custom mural for your room, please either leave a comment here or email me!

Finally Back Home!

So this is a picture of how I feel! I have soooo much to do and so many posts I would like to put up. First I need to get to work on this month's digital layout for Spinkydinkscraps. (sorry it is not up Lindsay) I can't wait to use her new kit! Check back tomorrow to see what I do with it!

This pic was actually taken in TN at Build-a-Bear and she really had a blast. She just got mad because I was letting her walk around and she tried to walk out of the store! But she got over it pretty quickly and went on to something else. Can't wait to get the rest of the pics up!
