Let's Get Organized

I've been going through my photo files and trying to organizing them. Hopefully when I finish, I'll be glad I decided to get organized. Until then, I just want to scream!

I stumbled across this photo which I absolutely love!
There is no specific reason I love it, but every time I see it I smile.

I am simply in awe of anyone who can capture some of life's the most amazing moments with a click of the camera. I have ALWAYS been the "photographer" in the family/group and have a tendency to take an insane amount of photos (with absolutely NO talent). My very sweet hubby decided to surprise me with a new camera (which by the way, I have NO idea how to use), in hopes that I can capture some of the same moments that I "ohhhh" and "awwww" over.

I've started to do some research and I'm looking for advice/guidance for simple tips to help me make the most of my gift!

I love my hubby SO very much and I am grateful that he thought to surprise me. In his eyes I am capable of accomplishing anything I put my mind to. I can't let him down! ;-)

This Little Light of Mine

We finished another project!
I was wanting a chandelier to hang in the downstairs bathroom and this one was found at a GARAGE SALE! It was definitely in need of a makeover.

First Step: PRIMER

Second Step: BLACK PAINT

(I LOVED the idea of a black chandelier with crystals)

AND... the finished project!

I had the crystals at home from a previous project and I think they worked just perfectly!

Now... if you could've seen the before photo of this bathroom, you would be in complete amazement of the transformation. It was just HIDEOUS!

Hoppy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and took time to reflect on the true meaning of this very special holiday. I know we did...
Below are just a few photos from our Easter weekend.
Tidbit dying eggs... being the creative family that we are, we absolutely LOVE dying eggs! My little man is a perfectionist and is not please until the eggs are "Just Right"!

Mini Key Lime Cheesecake Easter Baskets... Yummy!!

Decorating cookies would not be the same without personalizing at least one. If it has your initial, no one else can eat it. Right?!

A quick family shot

I'm not quite sure how to post more than 4 photos at a time without going through Photobucket... but will keep trying until I figure it out!

A MASTER Makeover

We decided to FINALLY makeover our Master Bedroom.
Many people have mentioned that they'd love to makeover a room in the house, but don't have enough money to do much. SO... I have been on a mission to see how much we could accomplish with a small $500 budget. The photos below show how much we accomplished without going over budget... BE INSPIRED! ;-)
(I don't think you should ever have white walls in your home.)


(It's amazing how warm a room can feel after adding a little color to the walls.)

The hubs and I designed and made the headboard. The PERFECT focal point for $50!!

We wanted the bedroom to be completely different than any other room in the house (like a get-a-way) and I believe we accomplished that!

Be inspired... it IS possible to have an amazing transformation with a small budget! We plan on purchasing a rug and I will be painting some art for the walls, but wanted to share photos of the room with $500 worth of change!
**Side note: Maybe that is what I should blog about... Making something out of nothing, using hardwork, patience and a small budget. Just a thought**
