I love printables with sweet words.  And when it comes to sweet words and quotes, there have been a few that I have been really wanting to incorporate into my little gals nursery.  And so naturally I did what any crafty gal would do, I made a few printables.

I have to admit, my nursery progress is on hold right now because we are renovating our entire upstairs and kitchen.  In reality I may not have a nursery for some time, and most likely not before the little gal arrives.  But I have come to terms with that and I am on to doing small projects that I CAN do right now.  Printables are little, but at least I can say I am kind of sort of accomplishing something right?!

I am not sure if these are the final version, but I thought I would share them with you and see what you think!




You are more than welcome to use these printables if you like them!  All you need to do is right-click the image and save to your computer.  Then you can print away!


They may even make cute cards if you printed them on smaller paper… hummm, I should really start making… can you believe that I bought 4 cards from Hallmark the other day and it costed over $20.00 ?!  The crafty gal in me is thinking that is printables for cards sound great!  BUT I do love Hallmark–have I ever admitted on here that I worked at a Hallmark in high school?  I loved it!  Any other ex-Hallmark employees out there?!

I LOVE a good before and after project!  Especially when the project happens to be sitting in my house!  I had some fun using a new paint Maison Blanche La Craie furniture paint and I have to say I am completely swooning and in love.



Maybe I am so in love with my new paint because it helped me fix up this old chair that has been patiently waiting in my garage for a makeover for over two years now (head in hand with shame).



I am sure glad that I never gave up on this guy and just tossed it in the goodwill pile!
The paint that I used for this particular project was SO simple to use, no sanding no priming, so simple!
All I did in this particular case was clean the wood surface to be painted, apply two coats which went on very thick and then wham bam I was done!  And the best part is that there was no odor, so that means that this pregnant gal could paint away!!!  Score!
Isn’t that color just PERFECTION?!  It is called sugar cane and I suddenly think that I would like every piece of furniture in my house that color!
And if you think that is an amazing color, check out the rest of the colors in this amazing paint line here!
Isn’t the can even beautiful!?  Now, here is some exciting news, you have a chance to win an AMAZING haul of Maison Blanche La Craie furniture paint and products!

The Inspiration Gallery Link Party Week 17

Happy Thursday sweet blog friends!

First let me tell you, you ARE in the right place… It is link party night, BUT, Lucy, Taryn and I have decided to rename our party–to the Inspiration Gallery instead of Happy Hour.

I think it is the PERFECT name for our party, because I truly do think that each and every link is inspirational, and I appreciate each idea and project that you share with us!

And before I go on with normal party business let me just say, a heartfelt thank you.  You guys have given me the most special week ever.  Sharing my baby news with you has been SO special!  I can’t even begin to tell you how each message left for me has meant so much to me.  I like the idea of going through this experience with each of you.  So one more time for today, thank you.

But, like I have promised, no more baby talk for a little while…. lets focus on those of you who have crafted and shared this week!

At the new and improved Inspiration Gallery Link Party!!!

The Inspiration Gallery Link Party

As always, there are 3 hosts for this party, and we love sharing what we have been up to just as much as you do!!

SO lets, start here!

Crafty Scrappy Happy

Yep, I spilled the beans, my husband and I are expecting a “Little Bean”!  I made the official announcement here, and then shared more of my personal feelings here.  Then I asked you to help me decide if I officially have a bump or not when I got you all up to date on where I am now, 13 weeks!  Okay, and I am caving because I am going to tell you AGAIN, I ADORE each and every comment you left me this week.  You are each such great friends!  Thank you!

Taryn is back in the CUTE crafting mode this week!  She made an update to her sweet twig wreath so it now fits her post Christmas decor!  And she made the cutest wood tone welcome sign!  I love it!  I have really been drawn to the mix of wood tones and paint together lately!

This week Lucy started off by sharing some AMAZING photos of her family, and she talked about how her “word” of the year, I think it is a perfect word!  In the same post she shared a very clever way to make your own fire starters!  Lucy also shared how to make your own chalkboard signs using PicMonkey, I love her examples!  Finally this week she also shared a simple treat bag idea for Valentines, of course they made me drool because my all time favorite alphabet stamps were involved!
