Projects in the Pipeline

I am not sure how many times I’ve mentioned this, but I am reminded during every waking hour I’m in my home that it is a complete and utter disaster in almost all facets. However, being my father’s daughter, I’m constantly brainstorming and working on remedying it.

Right now I have these projects in progress:

  1. Tray project
  2. Lamp makeover
  3. Bathroom reno

If I were to make a list of all my To-Do projects this post would never end but my high priority projects are these:

  1. Bar makeover
  2. New flooring (whole house)
  3. My entire master bedroom (the whole thing needs love, desperately)

As I look around my house, there is no place I find that doesn’t need some kind of help.  Thank God for handy aunts, Ikea, Pinterest, and blogging.

Taking Stock.

While I was pulling out my Christmas decorations this year, I realized that we have two new additions to our little family. Last year around this time, there were only four of us living en mi casa.  Me, my man, and our two roomies.  Three days before Christmas, we adopted Loki and over the summer we adopted (or took in) my sister. I pulled out our Christmas stockings and knew that it was time to craft a few new ones. Before I get into it, “craft” is a word I’m using liberally. You’ll see.

I went to Target and picked up two more of these $1 stockings they have.

I whipped out my Gold Glitter Puffy Paint from last year. (I’m shocked I found it too)

I gave it a little test run to make sure it wasn’t gummed up with any sparkly debris.

Then I carefully penned their names on the cuff just like the others.

The original four are scribed with our nicknames mostly because I thought it would be more fun that way. And it is. Hence the Becca Boo. Mine says Kuh-tee. This project was just something festive that we could do without breaking the bank.  Obviously, you could do a lot more or differently depending on your taste and skill level.  Maybe next year I’ll break out a new design? At $1 per stocking, that’s not a big deal.
