Well I adore my sweet friend Jennifer, or more well known as Shabby Happy and yes she is one of those girls who is always pretty happy about life and I adore that about her!!!! Anyways, she is doing fab on her new journey in marriagehood and I could not be more thrilled for her!!!! I had such a great chat on cell session with her today and just wish her the bestest!!!!!
Also, my dear friend Michelle (blogless)-LOL-is going to be teaching Sign 2 Me classes to parents and children in northern Florida. How cool is that!!! I highly recommend those classes!!!! And she asked for some pics of our Josher's signing. :) Well I got a few fab pics. And she is planning on putting them on the bulletin board and possibly the brochure as well! Cool! Our kids learned to sign from Signing Times and they are just about the coolest dvd's your kids can view. I love that they can sign a ton of words even before they learned to talk. Amazing. Anyways, here's one of my favs of Josher's signing the letter "B". :)
Okay onto some more fabulous stuff!!!! Remember those sooo totally chic and awesome glass crystal hooks I got? And was going to use on a special project? Well here it is!!!! :)
Amazing what you can do with an old door. My builder did this for me once I sketched it up! Sure it took him a few days but isn't it worth it? I love it and love the appliques all over it. Gave it the Shabby Miss Jenn painting treatment #23 (yes I might write a book about all my painting techniques someday-lol). But I LOVE how it turned out! The bottom opens so that our kiddies can throw their shoes in there and also can easily get them. The backpacks hang from those hooks and so do the the baseball hats! LOL Shabby Jul's handmade bag looks so great up there too! Love the shelf on top too and it holds my princess frame of our dd and my old McCoy vase and old roses tin. :) Ahhh to live the shabby life..totally fun!!!
Well I have another major TOOT for miss Susie Scraplifter. She just got published in the CK Top Ten issue that I got in my shabby mailbox this morning! WHOOO HOOO!!!! Her lo is PHENOMENAL!!!!!!! She used Ronna Penner's Time will Tell kit and oh my word she really did a fab job on it! Here's the issue! I couldnt' help but post it cuz it is sooo gorgeous!!!!
Okay and one more last thing to share...I had a paper crafty day today! I love doing that!!!! I saw that Kristie got a fabulous and darling monogram from her friend. Well I wanted one for me by my desk. So I went to my craft store and scrap store and got a few papers and also a Rhonna paper and they are soo cute!!!! I put mine on my "J" and sanded away. You see this shabby girl's most favorite toy is her electric sander (craftsman of course, dh wouldn't settle for anything less). LOL And I went to town on it. Love it. Then I added a huge fluffy silk rose, a dark thick screw (from the shabby barn-LOL), a rattled old tag and two lovely Hedi's shabbied pink chipboard hearts! LOVE THESE!!! YUM. So there I had this all done and love it and it hangs right on the wall by my shabby desk. Ahhh...sooo fun!!!!!!
Okay so that is one dooozzeee of a post! LOL Warm shabby wishes to you all!!! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!! Lots of rest, relaxation and fun!
