PAINT MOJO: Outside The Square

I finally dove into Tracy Verdugo's Paint Mojo book. So awesome!!!   And here is my painting from one of her excercises. Completed with only 5 colors...Craziness...and I call it "Go Barefoot?"

DECOR: 2349

I ventured out today to Hobby Lobby. Usually equals trouble but they had great sales. And once I saw these...I had to have them. 
And so I then had to find a place to put them up. And the stairway wall was the right spot. I ended up getting my house will always be part of my history as the first place (and maybe only) I owned. 

I did have a little game with myself called "How many holes can I make before one number is level and up?" Let's just say I got better as I went upward. 
And yes I survived a probably not so safe attempt to hang the "2". And I am in my pj's. 

But I love the finished look. And it also means the start of my art creeping up the stairs. I need more wall space. 

Some other ways you could use the numbers is for family size. Or kid's age, etc.

DIY: Fabric Topiary Trees

The obsession of making fabric trees followed me home from Nebraska. This time in the form of a topiary tree.

2015 Creative Team for Take 10 Kits
What could be a more wonderful way to start off 2015, then to be selected as part of The Studio 29 Designs' Take 10 Creative Team.  It is a pure joy so far working with these fabulous women.  Each person has their own AWESOME style.  And it's so fun to see the creations and inspirations come to fruition.  Not to mention, I completely love getting surprising Happy Mail and doing pocket scrapbooking/Project Life. 
Make sure to check in tomorrow for my first SNEAK PEAK here and go check out my profile* on the site as well.
(*note it was completed prior to my lil guy, Barkley, passing away.)
