Happy New Year! graphic provided by Graphic Fairy It’s 2013, can you believe it? 2012 was an amazing year and I hope 2013 is even better. I also hope everyone stayed safe celebrating the new year as the clocks turned midnight. New Year Resolutions? Do you make a list? Do you follow them or toss them out the window by Jan. 2nd?

2012 has been one wild and crazy ride. The year started off with a relationship with Scrapbook News and Review who I have followed for over a year. After joining the staffer team I moved over to the The Art Studio to teach students my love of flower making. Scrapbooking has really changed my life and how I look at my upcoming endures.

The Problem Our new home has an extremely small kitchen with very little space for storage.

A few days ago I received my first shipment of pallets from a longtime friend of mine and I am super excited to get going on many pallet creations inside and outside of my home. Don’t worry I’ll share the journey and recreates over the next few months. Yep, months! Hint: The first pallet creation belongs in the dining room. Stay tuned 🙂 Share This:
Christmas trees are my favorite Christmas decoration of all decorations seen throughout the Christmas season. Over the last few years my main Christmas tree has changed themes and colors. I’ve had red & white, blue & silver, blue & white, brown & maroon and this year my tree is decorated in black, brown, and maroon. Love the color scheme this year.

I love anything DIY and if you add something recycled to the mix it makes for even a better project. We purchased our house in March and it has taken till last month to decide on curtains for our living room and dining room. After many hours of searching online for curtains that would not only fit my taste but also please the hubby I finally came up with an inexpensive
