Heres my room key...

So I told you all I was redecorating my bedroom.. Heres the before...

What a mess!!!
Here are the after pictures...


The bed set is from Target. I got it last year right before Bryan got home from Afghanistan. It seems a little weird that I put it back on right before hes about to leave again. Oh the irony.

Anyways, I think the set is on sale at Target right now. Of course the deco pillows and sheets are extra, but its a cool set. Oh yeah, those are black velvet curtains... yummy!

Thats all for now... Have a great day!

I told you...


I would tell you what I was working on and here it is! Custom Hand embroidered Christmas ornaments! yay! Im making a bunch to sell and If I dont sell them, I can use them for my own purposes! Fun stuff.

Yesterday, I rearranged and redecorated our bedroom. It took me several hours but I didnt buy anything new. I only used what I had here. It forces you to be creative, like using a scarf as a table runner. I will post pictures later today after I go straighten it up. Why is it that after all that hard work and a pulled glute... it gets messy the second hubby gets home??? Sometimes I feel like a hamster in a wheel... Running and running but never getting anywhere!

Have a great day everyone!

Works in Progress....


I know, I know. I've been out of it for a while. With everything thats been going on and Bryan's impending deployment, I havent had much time to blog. Sorry bout that!

I think I could open a little shop in my apartment! Look at all these goodies... why do I still have them? Nobody knows. My sales have picked back up a little. Last week was a good week for me and this week started off well. Hopefully that will continue.
What am I working on now? Besides Grace clutches? Take a look... here's youre hint






I'll tell you what it is tomorrow. Something along the lines of Christmas! Yippee!!!!


And heres one of my newest bags! I love the fabric!

I'm having a hard time listing some of my newest clutches... I want to keep them all!

Well, I guess I have to go to Joann for some more interfacing... and maybe get some bread!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
