feliz navidad.

i really had fun with our Christmas cards this year!

i got the idea for this silly card from a funny pic
 of the hubs and i at Jordan and Clark's gender reveal party.

 I showed my idea to Kristina @
everyday lovely and she totally
got my vision and with her crazy skillz
made our kitsch-tastic christmas cards...
i love them!
and I really enjoyed working with kristina...
y'all should check out her stuff. She is super talented,
 super sweet and was really prompt.

Feliz navidad, friends!


girls, snow, paint.

I had a lovely weekend with the ladies in Dallas....
we ate great food all weekend and
 just really enjoyed being together!!!
 supper at Mattito's / breakfast at Bread Winners
 a little bit of shopping...
the weather was dreary but the company was cheery! 
(check out that cute little pregger belly on jor....)
 and to start off the work week...
here is our house sans shutters and paint.
We have scraped, sanded, primed
(we used a tinted primer on the body), caulked and now
we just have to wait
 for a warm spell to paint!
(We've been working on this since April...
so don't be surprised if it takes us til April to finally finish :)

We decided on white eaves/trim and black shutters/door
I think they will be a nice contrast to our selected paint color
Kelly Moore's - Beachcomber.

just a reminder of what the house looked like when we bought it...
Can't wait to get it all done and show finished pics!

hope you all have a great week!



I'm not sure where I saw this idea...most likely pinterest.
Fabric as art in needlepoint hoops.
I had a few fabric scraps that had all the colors
that I want to incorporate in our guest bedroom...
so I slipped the hoops over the fabric and cut off the excess.
 we have a pair of twin beds in there
and these hoops were just the thing for over the headboards...
please note my sweet husband's craftsmanship in the
beautiful headboards that he made:
 hope you all have a lovely weekend!
So excited to get Christmas underway at our house!
