We’re finally getting to the part of our kitchen expansion that I can be more involved with (will I regret saying that? Most likely…): The decorating!

The walls are drywalled and ready to be mudded and taped, which means that painting will soon be upon us, and then installing the flooring. Since this also means that within a few weeks (cross your fingers) I’ll be hanging curtains and recovering our kitchen chairs, I’m looking for options.

I’ve always loved these colors together, and since I saw it in a couple weddings on the Style Me Pretty Blog, I’ve been wanting to incorporate the colors into my home. If I can’t get married again, why not use in the home decor? Haha!

I’m going to be talking with my interior design friend to see if these fabrics would look good with the wall color I’ve picked out, and what she thinks about having them all together. Maybe a bit much? What are your thoughts?

 

Let Spring Come!

Love this Treasury West made by AMI Designs. It reminds me of spring, which I wish would just come already!

Well, it’s my last day of work at the radio station today. Thank goodness I’m outta here! It’s a complicated issue, but basically I’m working for two bosses and it makes for confusion! Not only that, but the communication in the station is nil and so they are always making our office work double time to pick up their slack. Frustration.

For the income tax season I’ll be working with my husband at his grandpa’s accounting office, but after that, the coast is clear. And I’m praying for creativity to fall into my lap! I need a fun job, and something that’s not too demanding.

No…I’m not picky…me? Noooo…

It’s really pretty.

And it’s on SALE! OOooo!

So last night was a busy one…actually yesterday as a whole was a busy one. Hubby was worried I wasn’t getting enough sleep so he told me to take the morning off of work and sleep in…not going to say no to that!! I didn’t get to work until 11:30 and it would have been perfect had I not woken up with a headache! Oh well.

Then at work I taught several students how to make lip gloss. It took up the whole afternoon, bringing me to 3:30 when I needed to leave work early for an Arbonne meeting in the next town.

A long drive to the Arbonne meeting, a GREAT meeting with Patrice Mattison. She’s so amazing! She’s an Arbonne trainer from the States who focuses on leveraging your time and communications with your clients / potential clients. It’s seriously incredible!

We drove up there with two of our Regional Presidents, IN A WHITE MERCEDES. I’m SO getting one of those!!!

If you’re interested in receiving some samples from me, let me know! Arbonne is an incredible company…if you’re trying to earn some extra money AND if you’re looking for high quality body care products!

Getting Out There

It was a long weekend this past weekend so I had way more time than usual to work on my bags (: Yay! My hubby says “So what are you planning to do today? Something fun?” “Yep,” I replied “Sew!”. He just stared at me blankly 😀

I had more fabric left over from the Nautical Bag, so I tried another color and just LOVE it. I’m really enjoying this pattern! I bought some great fabric on the weekend too so I’ll be sewing up different colors in this style.

We had friends over last night and they were looking through the bags I was in the middle of…I’ve now sold a couple of those (I’ll post pictures when they bags are finished). ANNND because of the auction my bag was in for Nie Nie, I’ve made new contacts and possible sales.

I forgot to post the Goals entry last week, so that’ll be coming up later on this afternoon (:

Enjoy your Tuesday lovelies!!

I’ve been thinking about this design for a while now and finally had the time to sew up my first bag! I just LOVE how it turned out! I have a thing for nautical stuff, and this is just so perfect. I’m not sure if I will be selling this exact bag, but I’ll be making more along this line (not only nautical, but other looks too!) and selling them in my Etsy shop and at the Farmers Market!

                              

                             

                             

Ps: Note the grommets?? I used my grommet machine on this one and LOVE it!
