My New Scrap Room

I’m a bit later than I said I’d be but here are the photos of my newly renovated room

I got the desk at Pottery Barn Teen, the chairs were from an old dining room set and I picked out some Michael Miller fabric and then choose four of the colors from the fabric to repaint the chairs. My sweet hubby painted them for me and then recovered the seats.


The chandelier also came from Pottery Barn Teen


The word art is from and I got the idea from Jodene, it is not a great photo but it says do something creative everyday. I found the big scissors on Ebay and the word scrap has been on my wall forever I just added more ribbons to match the new colors.


The shelf is from Ikea and the baskets and boxes are also from Pottery Barn Teen

I absolutely LOVE it and plan on spending tons of time down here.

Oh and my good friend Chris is making me a curtain out of the same fabric that is on the chairs so I’ll be sure to take another photo when that is here too!

A Wonderful Thing to Wake Up To

I actually slept late yesterday (7am) and it felt great and then when I went to let Sadie out this is what I saw:

I love rainbows, they always make me smile and to see this one was just the right thing to get off to a great day.

Michael and I went to Ikea to get a second Expedit, a black one for the den so I have somewhere to display my albums instead of in the basement in my scraproom where no one ever looks at them. We are going set it up and move all the albums off my new desk today so stay tuned for scraproom photos!!!

I’m excited to break in my room on Friday when Debbie, Deb and Dawn come over to scrap. It’s been too long since I’ve seen them and I can’t wait to scrapbook.

After IKEA we went out to lunch and then did some shopping at the mall. It was a fabulous afternoon and then when we got home we went over to our neighbors for a swim and bbq. More fun! I love weekends like this!

OK well that’s about it for me for now. I’ll be back later or tomorrow more!

Have a fabulous day!

My First Photo Shoot

Well since I didn’t get paid for it and it technically wasn’t my first since I’ve done the ‘christmas card photo shoot’ about 13 times now maybe I should say my first magazine shoot. Cause that’s really what it was! A good friend of DH’s 1965 Buick Riveria is going to be in a Buick magazine and he asked me to shoot the photos to send to the magazine! I won’t share the ones that actually made it to print but here are a few from the 150 I took:




And since they were official photos I figured it was time to make myself a watermark. I’m still playing but what do you think?

OK, I have to get off here and get ready to go to the neurologist to get some migraine help. Hope you all have a fabulous day!
