{ in total awe }

When I saw this transformation, my eyes about bugged out of my head.  No joke.
This kitchen should totally be in a magazine.

Erin from Rare & Beautiful Treasures took this tiny rental kitchen from this:
to this:
 for less than $100!

And you'll never guess how she did it!  You seriously need to head over to her blog to check it out.

I was honestly amazed at her ingenuity.  I don't think I EVER would have thought of it.

Isn't that such a wonderful thing about blogging?  Finding so many new and awesome ideas from all the millions of people out there who are SO much more creative and talented than I am!  I LOVE it!

My favorite part about her new kitchen? 
I adore how she strung up pictures with clothespins! 
Such a fun, easy way to make a bold statement.

Remember this little awkward area in my kitchen?:
(I'm talking about the small weird space between my cabinets and counter next to the fridge.  Sorry, wish I were home to take a better picture!)
Wouldn't a line of clothespin pictures look fabulous there? 

I cannot wait to put some candid ones up! 

Thank you Erin for inspiring me with your gorgeous re-fab!

{ fall wreath obsession }

Um, I love wreaths. 
Like, totally, completely, 100% love them.

and when I found this wreath over at Dream Home, I almost freaked out.
Okay, okay, I totally freaked out.  But how could I not?  I mean, look at this beauty!
 It is simply GORGEOUS!

I LOVE the simplicity of it.  Oh, and those adorable rosettes.  To. Die. For.
When I get back to Utah, I'll be replacing my store-bought wreath (which I do still love):
with a knock-off of Kasia's adorable wreath!

Any other wreaths I should be checking out and swooning over?  Point me in their direction, and I'll gladly come drool over 'em!

{ i had a baby }

Which is why I've been MIA for so long.

That plus moving from Maryland back to Utah to have the baby, then back to Maryland, and now to Pennsylvania for my husband's work equals VERY little time for crafting projects.

Also, it has taken me awhile to get the hang of two kids.  Cause, you know, they outnumber me now.
I feel like I am finally getting there though.  Course, since I'm in Pennsylvania for the next couple weeks, so my projects will be severely limited.  But I'll be here, lurking around. (um...not in the creepy way that that sounds though :))

And while I wait to get started again, I'll be enjoying giving mucho smooches to these two lovebugs.
sorry for the quality...crappy phone pic

Ah! Love those two. 

I will be back shortly with some projects to show you.
Until then, thanks for continuing to inspire me with all your crafty genius.
