Just wanted to let everyone know what's been going on and why its been so long since I've posted. I am FINALLY getting moved into my new house. It has been a massive undertaking. After 5 straight days of moving stuff out of my old house I've come to the conclusion that I have too much stuff!!! I am now living in a beautiful new house that is crammed full of boxes everywhere I turn. My obsessive-compulsiveness is starting to get the best of me and I'm getting a little panicky that I'll never get them all unpacked and get the new house the way I want it. I am VERY excited to share pics of the new house and hope to have at least one room done soon. I wanted to go head and decorate my blog for Christmas though because at this point it looks like I may have to skip Christmas decorating this year. :( But right now I'd settle on just having a cleared out corner where I could put a tree if I had the time to decorate it. I'm thinking about doing a blog post where I reminisce about last year's Christmas decorations. Maybe that will help get me in the Christmas spirit a little more!

Jungle Fever

Here are some pics of a shower that I did for someone this weekend. It was for a little baby boy who is already here. The mother didn't have a theme or color scheme for his nursery so I was free to choose whatever I wanted. I'd seen these plates before and just loved the colors in them so I knew that I wanted to do a jungle themed shower so that I could use them. They ended up being super appropriate since the plates say "Welcome Little One" and the baby is already here. I also had most of the stuff to do a jungle diaper cake. This was probably the easiest shower I've ever done. Everything just fell into place. I was even lucky enough to hit the jackpot and find the aqua satin fabric, green table runner fabric, and aqua tulle in the remnants bin at Hobby Lobby. That kind of luck never finds me! With everything I have going on right now though I was so greatful to be able to find everything that I needed to pull the shower together without having to search high and low for what I needed. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Blank Canvas

Just wanted to share some exciting news. We finally sold our house, again, and hopefully everything will go through this time without a hitch. For those who don't know the situation, we've had 2 offers fall through on our house. One was due to financing on their part and the other was a contingency offer and the people were unable to sell their house. So this has been a long process which may be finally coming to an end. We are currently looking for a house to buy and live in while we build our new one. So pretty soon I will have a blank canvas to decorate! I'm very excited because I was out of places to put things in our house and have been itching to try out some new design schemes. We should have a new house decided on in the next day or two and I'll post pics as soon as we do. I've already started looking for new stuff and my head is filled with so many ideas it may explode! So get ready for tons of pics of ideas, possibilities, and the end results.
