What a little paint can do.

Well, my new project. I can't believe that sometimes all you need is a coat of paint and you can have a hole new room. My Aunt asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said a gallon of paint. Well, that's what I got. So here I am on my Christmas vacation doing what I love to do best. Make a room look great for as little as possible. I wanted it to look elegant, not like it was a child's bathroom (yet it is my children's bathroom, we will add a couple of monkeys later to hold their tooth brushes). In the next photos you will see where I got my color palate from, the shower curtain. The only problem is trying to get photos of the bathroom so you all can see it. I was trying to squeeze into a corner trying to get pics.

Its really hard to get photos in a small bathroom that will show the affect of how different it looks. I still have to get some help putting the big mirror back up but I couldn't wait to show you all my new bathroom. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New year.

Sammy's Birthday Cake

Boy its hard having birthday parties around Christmas. So we try and make sure we keep them separate because Christmas is Just for Jesus. So because of all the gift giving and things there isn't a lot of money for the cake and things like that. So, you know me I am going to cut corners where I can. Jason and I got the bright Idea that we could make a cake, just as nice as the store bought ones and that's what we set out to do. I tell you I have the best husband in the world, God has truly blessed me. He made the cake, the fondant, rolled out the fondant and then put it on the cake. All I had to do was try my hand at the art work. Now we know that we can do it Tabby's birthday is next month so i will be at it again. Hope it turns out as nice.

This was the scary part. trying to find the right photo and then draw it on free hand. Its not like having a pencil with an eraser, however I found out water will do just as good on erasing food coloring.

Just finished painting the cake

Jason went in and added the finish touches for the final product.
