My daughter was on the tv show The View with Whoopi

A year and a half ago I partnered with Modern Bird Studios to create a custom piece of art. After sending a photo I took of my daughter at the beach, they sent me the most beautiful custom artwork. Apparently it was one of Modern Bird's most favorite pieces as well! When The View (yes, the TV show!) contacted Modern Bird Studios to showcase their art on the Whoopi's Favorite Things show, they wanted to share the painting of my daughter. Well, the show aired last Monday. Check out these screen shots I took: Holy cow, my daughter's face is Right.There.! Whoopi and … [Read more...]

Easy Lamp Shade Update

In an attempt to try to get one step closer to finishing my daughter's room, I updated her lamp. It was so easy it's almost not even worth a tutorial! My daughter has this basic chrome lamp with a hot pink shade from Target. It seemed a little boring, so I just added some orange ribbon to the shade to help match her recently finished curtains. To add a little bling to the shade I just took some leftover ribbon... ...and attached it to the shade with double-sided tape. I started and ended at the seam along the back of the shade. For added bond I added a … [Read more...]

Save yourself a lot of hassle with this spray painting tip

As most of you know, I love spray paint. I will spray paint anything and everything! Nothing is safe in my home from a can of good 'ol spray paint. :) With summer almost here I want to share a spray painting tip with you. Hopefully it will help you to not make the same mistake I made last summer. I decided I wanted a bunch of picture frames painted white for my gallery wall. It was August in Texas at about high noon which translates into at least 100 degrees outside with bright blue skies and lots of direct UV rays. Pretty much hotter than hell outside. ;) Perfect … [Read more...]
