I was going to ...

...do a better job of updating my blog in the new year, but I've already failed at that. Oh well, here goes my second blog post of 2012.
I recently and finally put artwork up in Jack's room after painting it last spring. What can I say, I don't like to rush things.

Here's a few projects I did for his room that I really liked. I used an old book to make a shelf, after seeing the idea on Pinterest. Also, I used an old, plastic dinosaur toy to make a lamp for his room. It was a really inexpensive project. 

I got the toy at a thrift store for 50 cents, the lamp was from a garage sale for $1. I basically just had to disassemble the light a little bit, spray paint the dino, drill a hole and viola I have new lamp.

Pin It

Happy 2012

I hope everyone had a chance to ring in the New Year with loved ones. 
I was lucky enough to have my Aunt and Uncle and their son over. It was fantastic. The kids entertained each other. The adults could actually carry on conversations and as midnight neared we all headed downtown Jackson to the ball drop celebration. It was our second year doing this and it was so much fun. Bigger crowd this year and better fireworks to celebrate the year ahead.

I said goodbye to 2011 by finally finishing a project I've been wanting to try ever since seeing it on Pinterest.
I'm excited with how it turned out. I can't wait to make some more.
