Adventures in the Caribbean


Just popping in for another travel report....last month I went on a Caribbean cruise with some friends. Ever since my trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, I've been wanting to explore some other Caribbean islands and a cruise is definitely the way to do it!

Fabric Bunting

Hello - long time, no blog!  It's been a busy, busy summer and I also have a deadline to meet, so I've been slaving away to make sure I don't fall too behind.  So, things may be continue to be slow on the blog-front in the next few months, but I'll be sure to pop in from time to time.

Today, I'm sharing fabric bunting that I made.  I've always loved the look of these, but there's really no place for one in my home, so when the opportunity to make a few of them came up, I jumped on it.

Sconces & Mirrors: A Master Bedroom Mini Update

Last week, I shared my plank headboard that I finally got around to making.  I still have some other projects in mind to make the room complete, but for now I've added a couple of small touches to give it a mini-update.

Plank Headboard

I mentioned previously that I'm working with Duluth Trading Company - they gave me a Kick In The Pants to get whatever project(s) that I needed to finish.  Two plans that I revealed were for a plank headboard & a dining table and I finally finished the headboard!  Several things came up since I originally planned these, including a sprained ankle, school work, & a lot of family stuff, but I was finally get it completed! (I have all the supplies for the dining table & it will still be done, but at a later time).

Projects In The Works

It's been quiet on the blog, but not-so-quiet on the homefront.  There's been lots of things going on, all the while I've been trying to fit in projects when I can.

I think I mentioned before that I've been in the process of making a plank headboard.   I ended up buying a Kreg Jig so that I could go with Plan B, which will make it easier to finish up the project.  I played around with it tonight and am loving it so far!

I actually had to put the headboard on hold for a bit since I helped make decorations for my friend's daughter's birthday party, which was last weekend.  (I thought I was going to have a couple of posts about the decorations, but I sort of forgot to take pictures of the finished products.  Oops.)  But, I'm hoping to have the headboard finished up soon.

I also want to make a few gifts, which I'll need to get done in the next couple of weeks, so I need to get on that - especially because my ideas are pretty ambitious and using processes I've never done before.

So, that's what's been going on - busy, busy, busy and several unfinished projects in progress.  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer - I know I sure am!

Maleficent at the El Capitan

Maleficent opened last weekend - did you see it yet?  I saw it on Saturday at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood in 3D.  I won't give anything away, but it was awesome and Angelina Jolie was perfection!  She WAS Maleficent.  They did a really wonderful job with the storyline - such an interesting version of this old tale!
