I love paint and especially spray paint! There is so much you can do with it! I have painted so many things to give them a whole new look. I recently painted some frames to hang in the playroom I am in the process of putting together for my daughter. These picture frames are just a few of the many things I have panted.
I painted the frames and took out the matting. I then cut letters out of scrapbooking paper. I got the frames for free. I bought the pink paint but I got enough that I will be able to make MANY more projects with it. I had the brown paint left over from a room I had painted. I also had the paper on hand so I really didn't have to buy much to make these.
|I decided I liked this paper better so I changed it all out and will use the other set of letters for something else.|

I thought it was time that I share my baby nursery. It is still not fully finished but it is close enough that I thought I could share it with you. I only have one before picture. Oh well.:)
|I still need to finish the curtains I am making for the window. I got my crib and changing table for $30 each! I made the changing pad cover from scrap fabric I had laying around.|
|I found this chair on a garage sale for $40. I love that it reclines! I want to reupholster it some day to make it match the rest of the nursery,|
|This is another picture I bought at a garage sale and redid.|

I know. I know. I more pictures of baby L.:) What can I say she is just so fun to take pictures of. These are her 4 month (well almost 4 months) pictures. Enjoy:)
|I am so sad. I had my camera on the wrong setting so a lot of these turned out a little grainy. When I tried to retake them she was already to tired.:(|
|Taking pictures is hard work.:)|
|Nap time doesn't stop me.:)|
|I just love sleeping babies!|
|I couldn't resist adding one of her feet.:)|

A while back I was looking for some things I could hang on my walls and I remembered a picture I had bought on a garage sale. When I bought the picture I was not sure if I would use it the way it was or if I would end up redoing it. I chose to make something of my own out of it.:) I ended up taking the whole thing apart. Sadly I did not get any before pictures of it but I have an after I can share with you.
|I used scrapbooking paper I already had to make the outer edge and for the background of the inner section.|
|An easy and cheap wall hanging.|
I paid three dollars for the picture/frame at the garage sale and then I already had the scrapbooking paper, flowers, and picture.

Do you love those grocery store cookies as much as I do? I was on Pinterest the other day and found this recipe for cookies. The recipe said they were supposed to taste like the cookies you get at the grocery store so I had to give them a try! I made them today and they turned out really good!
|The recipe suggests rolling out the dough on the plastic wrap that you refrigerate the dough in. Way less mess this way!|
|I made my cookies about 2 in around instead of the 2 1/2 in around that they suggest.|
|I got 6 1/2 dozen cookies out of one batch!|
|I am going to freeze a bunch for later.|

Today I start babysitting my little niece. My daughter and niece are about 2 months apart so this could be interesting.:) My sister and I both have to go back to work for two days a week. On two of the days we don't work we will be watching each others baby. On one hand I am happy because now I only have to work two days instead of three days. I have been working three days since my husband was laid off. On the other hand I have a feeling it is going to be super busy.:) I have a feeling I will not be getting any housework done one the days I babysit. Hopefully I can still find enough time to blog here and there still. Maybe they will be really good and always nap at the same time. Here's to hoping all goes well. :)

I was looking around on Pinterest today and found this tutorial for making fabric flowers. They were so cute I just had to give them a try! This is the website I found them on but I did modify mine just slightly.
|I used a shot glass to trace around because I did not want the flower to get to big. Also, I cut 9 circles total. I made one smaller to replace the piece of the felt used in the original instructions because I didn't have any.|
|I used scrap fabric I had laying around.|
|I thought one of these would look cute with it.|
|My happy little helper. :)|
|She wasn't so happy to try it on.|
|A bath and some food and she is happier again. :)|
|I am really happy with how this turned out!|
I think I am going to be using up a lot more of my scrap fabric in the near future.
