New Pillows!

Okay, so they aren’t new pillows, but they are new pillow cases for the throw pillows in my office.  I found this lovely fabric at Joann’s for 50% off and made the pillows using this tutorial.  They took me longer than 10 minutes, but I got them done!





They even match my cute binder!  (Yes, I’m a dork.)

Snow Play

We decided to try out a new idea today - painting the snow.  Not sure where I got the idea, somewhere in blogland.  It’s just food coloring and water in spray bottles.  Here, Mady is writing her name (click on photo to enlarge).


Rylan didn’t know what to think. Especially when Dad stuck him in a snow drift!


We also built a snowman.  It was the first time Devon and I have ever played in the snow together (I pretty much hate snow usually, but it was warm enough that it was bearable). It was kind of romantic – until we bonked heads putting the middle on the snowman!


Yes, Devon is wearing shorts.  And the face and buttons on the snow dude is real spray paint (not the food coloring/water mix Mady was using – It’s real black spray paint. Leave it to Devon!)

Valentine’s Wreath

I used this tutorial from The Idea Room.  This is one of my favorite wreaths and was super easy!
