design space

So I've been thinking of adding some "spice" to my kitchen above our cabinets. I was thinking of putting some pretty bowls like these:

And then I was thinking of something pretty like this:

All surrounded by these:

I know it's very "fall" ish, but my colors are burnt orange, natural brown and cream soo....


Well I've made it to 23! This was the best birthday I think that I've had in a long midterms and no school, no work, and all PLAY:) My family had been in town for conference the weekend before and we had a little cake party with a wonderful surprise from my mom:

A laminator and a di-cut flower

Then the next Sunday we had bbq chicken and ICE CREAM CAKE, my fave. Ty bought me a pair of boots, which he bought online and were just the kind I liked, but when I tried them on, they didn't fit!!! I gave him a huge hug and kiss for effort:) (don't worry, I sent those back and got some that fit beautifully)!

Then I did some birthday are some of my goods:

tank top is purple

Sunglasses are in black

Plus, Ty's fam gave me a $50 gift certificate to Hobby Lobby!!! MY FAVE!

great italian chicken recipe

I love easy recipes that I don't have to very much work:) and that Ty and I can eat for one meal. Here's another great one for the crock pot

Cream Cheese Chicken
4 Chicken Breasts (I used 4 chicken thighs and it was AMAZING)
8 oz cream cheese (I just used 4oz since I used less meat)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 packet Italian Seasoning Packet (I just used half since I had less chicken)
1/3 c water

Combine the seasoning packet with water. Put chicken in the crockpot and pour seasoned water over the chicken. Combine cream cheese and chicken soup until thouroughly combined and pour over chicken. Let simmer on high in crockpot for 3-4 hours.

I served over rice with steamed garlic parmesan green beans. YUM.

I had a boutique

Last week I participated in a home boutique and was able to make some good sales, but I also have quite a few things made not sold!!! Here are some of the items

Burp Cloths:

Diaper Bag Diaper Cases and Wipes Cases

Fall Decorations

These are the only fall decorations I have....

It's a good thing too cause I think it's going to be a SHORT fall

So, when we got home this summer there was this ugly, tacky bubble gum pink bookshelf outside our house. It sat there for about a month and I decided I could either just take it to DI or re-purpose it for a good use. For $3.00 I spray painted it black and then decopaged orange fabric onto the back panels. I think it turned out great! Now I use it to store my fabric stash--but it's totally cute and will function as a bookshelf or anything else when I need it to:) (I had a picture of the "before" but it got erased when I updated my phone. SADDAY)
