Another customer photo

Thanks to the Hall Family for sharing their photo of the bare tree decal. I love how they added the birds around the mirror to complete the project.

Thanks to Hanna and her parents for sharing their photo. I love what they did with Hanna's room. The green and pink combination is one of my current favorites.

New found inspiration for my daughter Mackenzie's Room




This is going to be the new theme in my daughter's room. I came across the design while spending the weekend with the owners of The Olde World Quilt Shoppe in Phoenix, AZ. They put together this cute panel wall hanging as a display. It's a work in progress so I probably shouldn't be sharing it yet, but I LOVED it and my daughter is thrilled by the new look her room will have. When the wall hanging is complete and on display in the shop, it will be embellished with all kinds of great bits and baubles...I can't wait to see it finished. For now I'm happy with just getting the fabrics ordered and getting started with a quilt of my own. If your interested too, just check out their store online. I know this isn't a quilt they have listed but either Dee or Whitney at The Olde World Quilt Shoppe will gladly help you create one of your own.

A HUGE thanks goes out to a group of people I've never met




Last night while struggling to help my son study for his 8th grade honors algebra exam. I was at a complete loss and as a last resort posted on etsy forums with a couple math questions and crossed my fingers in hopes someone out there would know something to help. I was amazed at how quickly several people were to jump in and help.


Just to mention a few that really stuck out


CopperLeafStudio
Miss EmmyGreen
neblik
cwebster.

I checked out there profiles and grabbed a couple things from their stores to show what these great people, who took time out last night to help, have listed. Thanks...
photos are from CopperLeafStudio and neblik if you get a chance stop by and check out their stores.

A weekend of fun








We finally broke out the pitching machine my husband had as a kid. It's been in the garage for longer then I care to think about. But we broke it out this weekend and got it set up to play with the kids. What a blast! I was shocked at the speed that it threw the ball. YIKES! The kids however loved it. Mackenzie much more then her brothers. She lasted for hours just playing catch with it. The boys got hot and headed inside after just a few pitches.

Our Bamboo has just gone wild







Our bamboo has just gone through a huge growth spurt. Seems that springtime does wonders for it. After watching it grow so quickly over the past few weeks I was inspired to add a bamboo decal to our collection. I love how it looks in our backyard and love the way it can add a great accent to a room.

Happy 10th Birthday Tommy


Today is my son's 10th birthday. I'm hoping he has a great day at school. He's taking cosmic brownies to share with his class. Then when he gets home we'll go out to a fun family dinner at a restaurant of his choice. After that I think we're headed to the new Wolverine movie.
