painting our blank canvas home one stroke at a time
Sunday, May 9, 2010
I wanted to write a quick update... We are 9 days out from closing on our pretty new house! SO excited to get in there and start decorating! We traveled to my home town for an early Mothers Day celebration, because guess what?! The hubby had to coach last night... That's right, Spring Football in Texas is upon us! Several people have asked me if I went to the scrimmage, and I'm sorry to say that no, I did not go. I was at home packing up the things we wouldn't need for next week and a half. Mom and Granny both loved their gifts... Success! I have a bunch of projects planned for the house, so stay tuned for an ambush of tutorials!
I'm a twenty something newlywed "Coach's Wife." To keep myself busy during those times between "off seasons," I craft. I sew. I decoupage. I scrapbook (usually unsuccessfully). I fawn over my shiny cricut expression. I DIY as much as possible. We just built our first house, and I am looking forward to turning the beige walls into a home. I'm a bargain hunter, I scour craigslist and the clearance racks for the best deals. I have a habit of looking at something in the store, taking a picture of it, and stating, "I can make that." I plan on using this blog as a sounding board for my projects... Sometimes they work, and sometimes, they just don't.
