It was this weekend last year that I completed my first DIY project. I made my sunburst mirror just in time to hang for my youngest peanut's first birthday party. I hung it proudly over my mantle and crossed my fingers that someone might notice and comment on my craftiness. (No one did, but whatevs) Fast forward 1 year and here we are, the eve of her 2nd birthday and 2nd birthday party. Only fitting that I make my return to my blog after a 2 month hiatus and start posting again.
My mom kept telling me that I was going to lose followers if I didn't start blogging again. Low and behold, she was right. When you only have 35 followers, it kind of hurts to lose 2, but I would have dropped me too I guess. Anyway, I have my sea legs now that I have been working full time for 2 months - I've gotten my groove in the the classroom and at home and am now able to start working on some projects around the house again. So, I hope those of you that are reading continue to check in on me and see what else we have been up to around here.
And, surprisingly, I have been doing a few things here and there. Remember these sconces from long ago?
A few weekends ago, I tried them again and just decided to go 1 color instead of the 2 tone affect. I think they came out much better this time. In fact, they are almost Tiffany blue, what girl doesn't love that?!
