It's been a very productive day!

I received an award from one of my very favorite blogs, Paper Pal Arts. Best Dressed of 2010. Wowzers! Thanks PPA Team. I am honored to say the least!

Yesterday, Hubby and I decided to paint the palyroom. It's a discusting place where my children do things I don't even want to know about. If boys are grosser/messier than girls, I could not even imagine! These girls are slobs!

So, anyway, "painting" snowballed into many other things. One being the "Gallery Wall." I've been wanting a special place to show my kids artwork for a while. I am raising a house full of artist and their art work is piling up! Luckily, I had all these things around the house. Hubby put up the trim and I applied the "Create" Decor Element I had originally ordered for my office, but has sat in the corner for 6 months. It was perfect for this wall!

That's their new art space below the wall!

The ribbon is, of course, my favorite ribbon ever! SU's 1 1/4" Grossgrain Night of Navy and Marina Mist.

The other wall has these cute polkadots. A sunday school room at our church has big polka dots and I've always wanted to do them! I gathered several lamp shades from around the house and traced them right on the wall. I hand painted them in . The colors are, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Marina Mist... OK, not really, but that was what I wanted them to be! LOL! This quote is from a local craft store.

So, this makes post # 3 for me today! See what happens when I am not working! I get lots of fun stuff done!


  1. What great ideas!! I love the display "board" I think I will case that for my stamp room - and use it to display cards!! what a great idea!! thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh my goodness, what a bright and cheery collection you have there from your children. And a very unique way to showcase it. I am sure this will get many years of use, and definitely be something they will remember for a long, long time! :) TFS with us! I followed a link to your blog from a fellow stamper at SCS who used the teabag gift pocket wallet. Sooo glad I did. :) Kelly

  3. Usually Blogs lack depth for serious learning. They are good for intellectual entertainment (in a good sense), announcements (again in good sense -- for example announcing some new ideas, new articles, new products), "general interests" reading. Not the case with your post though, really enjoyed it reading it and it held my attention all the way through!
