I found the lovely lady that does photography in Cypress, TX! She is right up my alley for photography so we struck a deal!! I do have to say that her photo my Flower Bow looks 100 times better than the one I took with my old rinky dink camera!!
This was a custom Christmas Tutu, Onesie, and Bow I did for her as well. Doesn't she take such great photos!! Wish my daughter was THIS easy to photo!!

Happy Halloween!!

I have been pretty busy lately and haven't gotten time to do much! But I really wanted to get the Halloween pictures up!! 
My sister and I made our little ones costumes and I love how her Abby Cadabby costume turned out!! My twins were fish and little miss LaLa was a witch.
They are busy opening up there Halloween Baskets!
This is the Burkhardt family! My sister Chencha, the Cat, my niece, Kinsley, Abby Cadabby, and my brother in law, DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba!!

I just love how LaLa's outfit turned out!!

An attempt at all of them together!!
Sadly, I can't tell which twin this is, but isn't my baby cute?! This was their fish costume I made for them!!

Enjoying some cupcakes after that long hard walk for candy!! LOL!!

Heather Bailey's Craft Room

I am IN LOVE with Heather Bailey's Craft Room! So much so that I went and found my own dresser and painted and stained it and now I have my own Heather Baileyish Dresser. LOL! 

I've started working on my room again and my goal is a room as elegant as this. I even found a chandelier similar to her green one. Mine was all white when I got it and I've painted it pink and green.


Now I've just got to figure out how to take pictures more professionally! I've got a lot of work to do to my room, heck, my whole house still isn't finished, but I try not to think of it and just do it one at a time. NOT easy for someone like me who wants it all done NOW!!

Magnetic Alphabet Bottle Cap Sets

I have seen a lot of these magnetic "bottle cap" things going around and thought how need they were! But my daughter was way too young to wear them so I kind of forgot about them. I decided to make some to see how they would sell but I didn't have any idea what I wanted to put in the middle. So... long story short, my kids were playing with their magnets on the fridge and I had an "ah ha" moment. Why not a Magnetic Alphabet Bottle Cap set? I started with these and am hoping they sell. They have the super strong tiny magnets on them too! Not those thin black basic ones, so they won't fall of your fridge when you are shutting or opening it!! If you are interested in them, check them out at my Etsy site!!

My First Before & After!

I've been looking at a lot of before and after blogs of late and so many of them have inspired me to try my hand at it myself! So, I have a quite of few that I've been working on and one of them is my daughter's room. She has black distressed wood furniture and it just never went with my "shabby chic" theme I had going on in there. So... I changed it! This is what the dresser looked like before...(sorry about the drawer missing, I had already started painting and almost forgot to take a photo of it before!!)
And this is what it looked like AFTER I worked so hard on it!!...

I still have to do LaLa's armoire and crib but am so worn out!! I'm working on her chandelier and tea table along with my work dresser for my craft room, which I can't wait to show!!

Here are a few links to the ladies that I received all my inspiration from! Thanks girls!

Actopus to Zelephant Nursery!

I have been looking for ideas for my twin boys room and came across this blog today. It's called Tweetie Pie Baby and has some really cute ideas! Especially this one! I think I found a wall idea that not only is super cute but super inexpensive as well!! She used Mod Podge, two canvases, and cards from Michaels. Try it out!!

My Very Own Craft Room

With our new house, I've finally gotten a craft room all to my own! I've been slowly fixin it up and have a long ways to go, but, I thought I'd show some pictures of my favorite room!!

The blue desk was originally all red. I found it on craigslist for $12 and had it in my twins room but, when we moved into this house, I saw another need for it! So I spray painted it blue and then with a lighter blue paint from the Martha Stewart Collection at Home Depot, I made the drawer lighter. I painted all the frames too!  I had the flower garden stakes from my daughters first birthday lying around and decided to mount them on the wall. I plan on painting the room also, just haven't figured out what color yet.
I got this desk off of craigslist too for $20 and spray painted it ivory and then painted the front of the drawers and top of the desk a light pink. I love it! I still plan on going in and spray painting the lamp and redoing the lamp shade. 

This was my twins original changing table that I also went to town on. I just love all the colors! The hanging lanterns where from my LaLa's 1st Birthday as well and I wanted to put them to use so I hung them here! I had no place to put the Tutu's and decided to hang them from the bottom of the lanterns. Turned out pretty neat, I think!
