So Many New Things!

I have so many projects that I have finished, half finished, and not even started yet. I was in the middle of my kitchen makeover when I had what felt like a million other things come up that needed my attention more than my ugly bright orange countertops.

DIY Fabric Flowers

With the arrival of the new little princess (my grand daughter) I have decided that she will probably need a new hair bow or head band to match each and every outfit.

The Tarnished a sparkly new tiara coming soon!

This week is off to a great start! First of all--the sparkly new tiara--is my first grand baby coming Tuesday. My daughter is going to the hospital to be induced.
