Quite frankly, I'm embarrassed. I enjoy writing this blog and sharing my stories. I'm passionate about inspiring people with my projects and helping readers become thrifty designers, smart shoppers and ambitious DIYers, so that one day they'll pause and look around into the individual rooms of their home and think, "Wow. My house is pretty awesome." So I understand it may be hard to believe how much I actually enjoy writing my blog -- when I haven't written in three freaking months.
I have not given up on my blog and my first home makeover journey. It's certainly unlike me to not finish something that I've started. My makeover journey began back in February of 2010 and it's so far from being over.
In fact, although I have been mute for the past three months (vacationing, trying to figure out what career path to take, DIYing, watching ALOT of the Real Housewives and Bethanny Getting Married), I have also been keeping myself quite busy with projects.
So without anymore blah blah blah-bing, I'll jump right back into the swing of things and show you hightlights of what I've been up to...
|we made some kitchen improvements: purchased new counter tops, added a backsplash and re-painted.|
|we spent a week in san francisco. so gorgeous. totally love blue bottle coffee...and so much more.|
|yup. I finally purchased a good ol' sewing machine. did my research and got me a decent beginner one.|
not gonna lie...i'm kinda good at the sewing thing.
|searching for the most perfectly fabulous fabric prints to transform into bedroom and kitchen curtains.|
|i have a crush on the color purple - i'm drawn to it|
|...and more stenciling|
|apartment hunting for roxy. found her a nice abode at IKEA for $6.|
|buying bedroom furniture - for prices you wouldn't believe.|
|planting flowers and herbs and making flower beds|
|meeting my nephew, Caiden, for the first time. he lives in florida with his mom and dad. precious.|
|going for long bike rides|
|inspiration searching for ideas on how to transform this $40 dresser.|
Sorry for my lack of blog enthusiasm. I hope you like the images I shared and that you keep checking back for the full behind-the-scenes scoop on these projects.
Have a wonderful night!
