Friday Feature: Our new addition...

The POOL!!!
Well, this is the new big addition to our back yard that I mentioned before. 
We finally did it!

It's still a work in progress. 
Landscaping, furniture, floats, all the little extra things are needed....

But for now, I am just happy that we have a body of water to jump into on the hot summer days! 
I'm happy that we can share it with all our friends and family...
have lots of pool parties...
keep the kids out of the house and away from all electronics ; )
... use it for exercise...
and most importantly enjoy it and create many memories for years to come.

Alright...who wants to come over???
Lets swim!!!

My little Brownie and Mothers day...

On Friday my baby girl moved from being a daisy to a brownie...
It was bitter sweet. 
Just proves how fast she is growing....

I am so proud of her. She has really opened up and come out of her shell these past 2 years with her daisy group. I hope she will continue to grow and build life long relationships and memories along the way.

 Here she is (in the middle) with all her "brownies"!!

Then on Sunday I was showered with love and gifts from my family. I could not have asked for a better Mothers day.  (other than for a little sunshine)  

I hope all the moms and moms to be out there had a great Mothers day as well.

Friday Feature: framed fabric...

I love the idea of using fabric as artwork. With so may great prints out there it's a great way to personalize your walls ...AND on a budget! 

Here are some ideas on pinterest that caught my eye....




So I decided to put this idea to use and frame some for myself!

I had some framed prints laying around that I didn't care for, but didn't want to get rid of them. I liked the frame and matting. 

So I went and picked out some fabric, ripped out the back, and got to work....

I cut my fabric to fit and used fabric adhesive spray to apply it to the print. I made sure to cut out the fabric to make each frame a little different. 

And that was it....simple as that!! I got two new framed prints that I am now happy with. All for only $5!!! Can't beat that!! 

Now all I need to do is hang them ; )
