27 Weeks and Projects

This is the deceiving pregnancy picture. You can hardly tell how pregnant I am and it makes you wonder why people ask if I am getting ready to deliver OR how many I have in there.

But then I realized that I really look like this to them:

Oh and I have 13 weeks to go, how embarrassed they get when I have to tell them that. Of course, I try to make them feel much better about their lack of knowledge of how big I actually get when pregnant.

There is this awesome blog, with this awesome artist that is really behind and not taking any orders for artwork. What she did do is some tutorials on how she paints and some advice for complete novices, like myself. So .....I decided to try my hand at some artwork for Colt's room.

I took the colors and the stripes from the bedding and tried my hand at the circles she demonstrated. Believe me it is by far not perfect and there is no way I could charge anybody for my work. But I am proud of myself and happy that I made something for his room. Don't come over and look closely at it though.

Now when we remodeled our kitchen a few years ago I could not decide what type of lighting I wanted over the island. We bought some pendant lights that match our dining room light a couple years ago. Since it is my birthday month (and a big birthday it is) I get alot of projects done from the hubby. So here is his 4th of July project.....

Love them!!! They look better than I could have imagined.

I have about 5-6 other projects that are in various stages of completion. Obviously, my goal is to have them all done by the middle of September.
Hopefully, I will be a better blogger soon too.
