FOREVER DIVA


A couple weeks ago, I opened a beautiful package of goodies from Vicky Alberto's cute cute cute ETSY shop.  Most of the embellishments you see are from Vicky's shop.


Those cute flowers, pearls, that canvs tag are from Vicky.


This awesome piece of wood cut into a flourish!


The ribbon/lace and crochet flower!  The stamps on the tag are from UNITY STAMP CO.  Which by the way, Unity has a NEW web site up and running and it's AWESOME - VERY functional for your shopping experience.


And here I applied some SHIMMERZ paint to tie in the blue and brown.  Can you see the SHIMMER?  I applied it with a paint brush and it took all of 1 minute (maybe you can tell LOL).


I entered this layout into BACK PORCH MEMORIES Guest Designer contest (which they have each and every month) and I won!  So for the month of November, I will be designing with Back Porch Memories!  Whoot whoot!

AND - here is a sneak of my NEW craft room!!!  I got some wallpaper up.  Here is my ACCENT WALL.  I know damask may soon be out of style, but I wanted something dramatic.


I am VERY proud of myself.  I drywalled the ceiling with only a little help from my husband and Dad, and applied a total of 10 coats of paint, and hung my own wallpaper - NO HELP!  Now I have to rip up the old carpet and get ready for cabinet installation.

If you don't hear from me, I'm either seeing the doctor for a pulled muscle, working on the craft room, or sleeping.

Bye for now!
