office art...

Hello! Real quick- I wanted to share with you a cute little canvas I painted for my office. I needed a pop of color and something cheerful to look at-- I love it!

3 new pins....

Helllloooo! I've got a few new pins to share! I made another burlap football door hanger- this time for Brian's parents-- Wynne Yellow jackets edition... love it! Mrs. Susan even added a cute blue bow at the top and it looks fab on their door!

A little while back I blogged about the amazing homemade pizza I made.. it's back but this time I topped it with spinach and chicken.. it was sooooo good! I'm still amazed that using only greek yogurt and flour you can make sure a delish crust!  

And last but not least... chocolate chip cookies stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough! These were sooooo, so rich that I could hardly eat a full one. (good thing!) And something went kind of wrong when I was stuffing them, it's like the dough part got too soft that it all separated?? I'm not a master chef, yet.. so I'm not quite sure. Anyway, Brian & Clark gave them two thumbs up!

Pinning!

HELLLLLO! So glad we are already halfway to Friday. And tomorrow... I will finally have cable and internet. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally addicted to Mad Men on DVD right now but I'm dying to watch the news every morning/night.

I'm loving living in Little Rock! It's been a great week and a half. I can't wait until I have everything unpacked and in it's place, I can't stand seeing boxes and empty walls much longer. In all the chaos of moving I have found some time to work on some pinterest projects....

These DIY curtains I found at the link here --> curtain tutorial. I was so excited about these because I wanted a pop of color in my living room but couldn't find any curtains that would work. So I bought cheap white curtains (maybe too cheap and thin) and taped off a grid, then connected the dots and removed the grid tape. Painted them and finish! I don't love them and I will replace them when I find something I like better... but they work for now. The curtain is almost too thin, I need to sew a liner behind-- the sun makes the paint look like it needs like 5 more coats of paint. But for now, they are fun and bright! Mission accoumplished.

Apple Pie Breakfast- So delish! This one says you can throw it all in the slow cooker, go to bed and wake up to a hot breakfast... but after reading the instructions, you really can't. I cooked mine on high the night before for about 3 hours, stuck it in the fridge and then I heated up just enough for breakfast on the stove. It was soooo delish! So simple.. just oats, apple juice, water, cinnamon, apples, and brown sugar. Try it! 

You probably know by now that I started a new job last week. My office had lots of papers just stuck in the wall with thumb tacks so I decided to go back to middle school and get a bullitin board. But in true crafters fashion.. I had to make it cute! So I bought a cheap board from Hobby Lobby, covered it with fabric (used modge podge to secure the fabric to the board) and I wanted to use decorative nail heads around the edges, could not find them so I settled on silver push pins. Beware... my thumbs are still numb!

Hope you love the new projects. Have a fabulous week and weekend :) xoxo.


Woo Pig Sooie!

Okay.. so we lost. To Louisiana-Monroe. That's all the comment I will make on the game. I'm almost certain we will beat Alabama this week :)

Totally forgot to post this cute picture from the weekend. We had a fabulous weekend.. did I mention I love living in central Arkansas?!
