More pictures...

Here are few more pictures of the living room taken during the day.  I think they are MUCH BETTER pictures!

I guess there is quite a learning curve going on here when it comes to photography and photo editing.  I have been using the "picnik" editing program but I just found out they will be closing in April.  Just when I was really getting used to it, BUMMER!   Anyone know of another editing program similar to Picnik?  
Let me know, thanks...

~Our Living Room ~

Here is a look at our living room. It could use some updating, maybe some fresh colors for the walls, sofa, and drapes but it will have to stay this way until the playroom is completed.  I don't know why I always start thinking about another project while I am in the midst of one.  Crazy!!!

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!

*Fonts, Fonts, Fonts*

I just go crazy over new "Fonts"! I just can't get enough of  letters and numbers.  I love them on stationery, plates/cups, I love them framed, on wood, and signs (especially on old signs).  I get so excited when they pop up on Pinterest, I have to download them immediately.  Here are some I have found...

I found these on Pinterest here.

Check out the fonts from Emily at Jones design Company
Love them!!!

These were found on Pinterest here 

I suggest you download these great fonts today, so you can start doing some fun projects with them!!!
I know I am...

Have a great weekend!

* New Year - New Projects*

It's 2012, time to get motivated, organized and clean clean clean!  The Christmas stuff is put away and the cleaning has begun.  We have also started on a new project.  ML (my husband) and I have decided it is time to re-do the kids playroom (probably because ML purchased a new TV for Christmas, well really what got the  ball rolling was we switched our cable to Fios and since the cable guy was coming to hook up the new cable we (needed) to purchase a new bigger, better, HD TV for the playroom.  I suppose that was a good enough reason but I figured I would get a new room out of it so I went along.  Sooo the new TV will go along with a new sofa, chair,  lamps, rug, art for the walls, etc...  You get it , right?  So I put together an inspiration collage and I am attempting to stick to it.

     1.Ikea   2.Ikea   3.Ikea   4.Potterybarn   5.Ikea   6. Potterybarn   7. Potterybarn  8.Ikea  9.Potterybarn

 I guess I got stuck at 2 stores, less expensive and more expensive, well these are just ideas.  We already have the TV (of course)  but haven't had time to shop for anything else.  Wish us luck!!!
