  • Project: day 106: get crafty/ new house paint: benjamin moore’s alexandria beige
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 4 (thanks to my husband for this one, he’s a peach!)
  • Would I do it again? yes! We loved this color, thanks to my wonderful designer best firend for this color tip!
  • What I would do differently: we’re hoping to do an accent wall in the family room with the same color, but there is so much to do when you move, not sure when we can get that one done!
  • Items used: Benjamin Moore Alexandria Beige (we painted over a rusty bright orange which was already there, and didn’t quite go with our furniture)

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 47: get crafty/ kids party decoration idea/a year in photos, collage
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? yes! It’s a great way to commemorate your child’s past year in photos (or anyone for that matter). We did this for Morgan’s Minnie Mouse birthday party coming up, and I thought what better way to show what she has been doing for this past year, and how much she has grown. It hopefully should be pretty cute with all the fun Minnie Mouse decor!
• What I would do differently: get the photos in black and white!! I meant to but started uploading all of the photos and forgot to change them to black and white. Oh well, next time!
• Items used: instead of waiting to put them up on the day of the party (since we are not having the party at our house, but rather The Little Gym), I thought it would be better if I could make it ahead of time. So I just laid out legal size copy paper, stapled them together to for the number 3, ordered about 70 picture of Morgan all taken since she turned 2 last year until now (you can probably get away with using 40 or so, I didn’t use all of mine), taped the pictures with double sided tape to the paper, and voila! Now I can take it to the party and it will be ready to go!
until ipinterest tomorrow!
