I apologize for my lack of posts this week but if you have been following the news you've probably heard of the terrible devastation in Alabama due to the tornadoes that hit yesterday. Thankfully my family and friends are safe and did not experience any damage to their homes, but several Alabamians did and the images are just unbelievable. My prayers go out to all who have experienced loss due to this horrible storm.
I hate to leave this post on such a depressing note, so one thing I am happy about right now is that the Royal Wedding is tomorrow!! My DVR is set so that I can watch this very happy occasion unfold when I wake up! I'm sure some of you have planned viewing parties, and if so, you should go to The TomKat Studio to check out their fabulous FREE printables!! Cheerio...

I am in LOVE with this bright and colorful Easter party from Pizzazzerie! It is fun to see an Easter celebration that is not drowning in pastel colors. I don't know about you but sometimes by the time Easter rolls around, I am tired of looking at eggs, which is why I am crazy about this carrot themed party!!

I know you must be so tired of my obsession with bunting and banners, but I just can't help it. I am totally LOVING this return address stamp. Seriously....can it get any cuter?? This would be perfect for using on invitations....

Ok, so I have to admit I am the worst blogger when it comes to documenting my DIY projects. I start the project and then halfway through I think, wait I need to be taking pictures! Therefore, I don't have a good photo of my hubby cutting the plywood into the pattern we chose, nor do I have him mounting the foam to the headboard with adhesive spray. But, as you can see I have him wrapping the batting around the headboard and securing it with staples. Once it was time for the fabric I got involved!! I helped him wrap the headboard in our fabric...which turned out more challenging than I thought. The edges that are cut out on the top corners were harder to get smooth, but we persevered and made it happen. It is a good thing we didn't go with one of the more intricate patterns in my post yesterday. Another part of the project that I let the hubby handle was attaching the headboard to the wall. I have no patience for measuring, finding studs and using levels. He did a great job though! I'm trying to decide if we should add nail heads. I love nail head trim! What do you think???

My hubby and I have really been getting into sprucing up the house lately, so this weekend we decided to tackle making a headboard for our master bedroom. With so much inspiration online and bloggers providing the step by step process, it was pretty easy! Above are some images that inspired our look. Don't worry, photos of our headboard are coming soon!

Hello deliciousness!! This sweet treat has me dreaming of Easter egg hunts and spring weather. Its been a crazy week down here in Bama. Cold rainy weather has been dampening my spirits, but sunshine is on the horizon this weekend! March had itself all out of whack.,..it came in like a lamb and out like a lion...not cool March...not cool. I'm glad April is here now and hoping that warm weather and sunshine will be here to stay!
