finally made something

cute and useful :)

Debee Our Home

I blogged over at Kenner Road today... shared this little ditty.
Totally inspired by Anthro and some KR love. I had to share some home snap shots. I love the progress we are making. Even if we haven't really done much to the place besides clean. It definitely makes us thankful for everything.

Debee Our Home- 1

This is us waiting for escrow to come to an end. Except it took 2 weeks longer than it should've. Here we were homeless. Staying at an extended stay hotel with lots of yummy gift cards :)

This is our sweet little space. Our bedroom is lofted. Our bed it white and soft. I LOVE our anthro pillows. With embroidered birds and flowers. Mr. Handsome just really loves that they were on sale for 19 bucks :) eh. We both win lol.

I'm always cleaning. I LOVE doing the laundry. LOVE it! It must be the fabric softener or something. I just can't get enough of the fresh clean smell. YUM.

My book is packed with ideas, swatches ( the yellow picture behind the swatch tag is an actual picture of the fabric on our accent chair we have in the living room. We loved the pattern so much we bought 2 chairs in 2 different colors :) Isn't that flower crotchet total cuteness? I have to get me some skills.

A tip for a technique I used: The KR Salmon Creek kit comes with naked chipboard letters. I simply gessoed over the top of them. Very half washed. I let them dry a little. Then dabbed a paint brush in various watercolours and then into water back over the top of the letters. Voila! It gives it a haunting appeal to the lettering I think. I likey :) Add as much or as little gesso or watercolour as your little heart desires.

Back to life...
-making zucchini muffins
- washing a ton more laundry ( I can do your laundry too. come over :)
- work on a scrap class I will be teaching (crossing fingers)

enjoy loves,

happy news!

handsome and I have FINALLY moved into our condo! woot woot! A happy dance is in order... break it down!
After the whole escrow drama which started April Fool's day (we shoulda known ;) and after 2 months of waiting...we are finally in our place. With our weeds, our funky looking carpet and our crazy amount of boxes :) Pictures of course to come... now this blog will be about redesign in our home. Overload.

So while everything was packed away the lovely KL sent me a beautiful package containing the KR June kit of course! LOVE deep deep love for KR kits! I squeeeeeeezed time between packing, graduations and moving to play with this months kit. see?

I never leave home without my spray can :P

Can you believe it's been 7 weeks since Handsome and I said "I Do"? CRAZY! Right now we are just happy we survived the whole wedding planning, the wedding, and the home buying experiences... all of which came with their own set of drama for EVERYONE's mama. amen But none the less, happy is pretty much our state of being. Blessed and happy. :) We are SO thankful we had a very small and humble wedding with NO credit card debt or post wedding debt for that matter. AND that our family and friends were there to cheer us on and have a good time. Srsly. It was the best. :) This is us walking down the aisle as official husband and wife.

Baby G is a very funny kid. Silly sleepy head hates going down for a nap. SO right before he does he gets extra playful and jumps on my lap to play with my laptop and photobooth. It's so cute! He pushes the button to snap the pics :)

This layout is a bitter sweet one for me. A couple months back I was going to physical therapy. I was told to stop doing straining activity like drumming and I didn't. Because that's how I roll. Play till your arms fall off right? yes. that's how rock works. anyway, since then i started going to occupational therapy and they told me I had on top of the carpal tunnel in BOTH arms, tendonitis in BOTH arms too. Oh nuggets. Not good. I got worse and of course that was a wake up call. Chill out. Rest. Relax. And so I'm happy I get a break but I guess I am afraid I will never get back to it. I always wished I would be the drum rocking grandma....I'm holding onto hope. There is always hope.

and to end off on a happy note:

Oh my goodness handsome and I are BIG fans of Mario Batali! I love watching him cook on Iron CHef and more than that I LOVE his food at Mozza, in LA. The Pizzeria blows away any pizza I've ever had. Simple. Not greasy, yummy overload and happy tummy feeling good. So if you are ever in LA you MUST go. Call and make a reservation weeks in advance. Handsome and I just went recently for our honeymoon. We went to LA just for that. :) The Madonna pic is of a picture I took of a poster outside of Mozza. We were hanging out waiting for the restaurant to open and I thought it's make a cool background :) cool cool.

Alrighty, fun times to be had today:
Starbucks run
unpack boxes
lunch with dad
unpack boxes
take a nap :P

Wishing you all a happy week. Enjoy not having to unpack!
see ya
