13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / CUTE Valentine's wreath. Cheap and easy!!! on: February 12, 2008 08:29:38 PM
I made this last year, I'm such a slacker at posting projects... Undecided

I bought a bunch of roses at the dollar store, cut the stems off.

I cut a heart out of sturdy cardboard.

Hot glued the roses to the cardboard heart, and added a cute polka dotted ribbon to hang it with.  

Voila!!!  Everyone thinks I bought it until I turn it over and show them the cardboard.   Cheesy

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Zen in my Den and Dining room (Img Heavy!!) on: February 12, 2008 08:13:56 PM
Okay...I'm on a roll showing off my home.  This is the last of them for now, because the other rooms are cute but nothing to brag about.  I would love to paint, but we're renters.... Undecided

Here are my dining room and den...kind of an asian/indian fusion goin on.  A lot of stuff from Target again.  I'm a total Target junkie.  Its nothing special, but its super comfy and warm, I love it.

Sorry for the poor photography.  I suck at it.

Forgive the clutter of toys....I have a two year old.  I kept moving them as I took pictures, but it got tiresome, and my daughter was crying, so I gave up.

My house is always pretty clean, but usually there is a layer of toys covering everything, kinda like a toy store took a dump.

My dining room...

I love this statue...

part of the living room, theres the toy clutter I was talking about, but usually its everywhere!

another view with dining room in back.  the pillows were the first thing I made when I learned to sew, so don't laugh!!

love seat...these are the comfiest couches ever...

wall behind love seat...

another view...

view from the door...my 2 year old is watching blue's clues


shadowbox on wall above love seat...

that's all folks!

15  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Hello Kitty Toddler room!!! (Img Heavy) on: February 12, 2008 07:37:40 PM
So, my daughter is almost 2.  Her room has been like this since before she was born, I just got around to taking pictures of it!  I know its nothing spectacular, just wanted to share.  I want to do more to it, just don't know what, its getting cluttered!

If we weren't renters, I would have like to have painted the walls or a mural or something, but we have to be boring...

So here is her room....that she won't even sleep in!

Her bed...

Here is something I painted for her room....I think its kind of dorky, I don't fancy myself a painter, but she likes it, so oh well!!

Her dresser, used to be changing table...notice the hello kitty valance on the window...

Close up of knobs...

Stuff on dresser...


old shelf I painted for her...we love bunnies too!

awwww...Chloe when she was a lil baby...

and here is the princess now, eating her cupcake!!

What a lucky little girl, to have a room like this, and she won't even sleep in there!!  She wants to sleep with us still (along with our dog and two cats, what a full bed) , our room is totally boring!!!

16  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My YUMMY Red and Pink Kitchen (Cupcake Heavy!!!) on: February 12, 2008 02:55:43 PM
Ok, so this is my first official project post.  I'm mostly a lurker and a swapper.

I have been working on my kitchen for about 6 months now, mostly just collecting things.  It started out red, then 
I started buying dessert stuff (mostly cupcakes), then came the pink.  Red and pink is my favorite color combo (next comes red and aqua!)!  I love my kitchen, it makes me really happy. I can't wait to see what it looks like in another 6 months. The only bad thing about it is, it makes me want to bake, and eat.

I still have a lot of work to do, like collecting more ceramic for the top of the cabinets on the other side.  I also need to do some artwork for the walls, especially the big bare spot above my sink.  I plan on stenciling a quote above the window.  Either "Let them eat cupcakes!" -or- "Life's short, eat dessert first!"  I'm hesitant to do too much, since we are renters... Undecided

There are quite a few pics below, you're pretty much getting the grand tour.

I apologize ahead of time for my poor photography skills, its not really one of my talents.

Comments, criticism, questions, ideas, inspirations, all are welcome!!!

First off, my stove, with all its Target goodies...

I reaaaaaaaaaaalllly want to make these https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=174111.0 as Christmas Gifts,

I know it says to use a 3.5 hook and a thin yarn, I don't have either on hand. 

My smallest hook is a 3.75 and my yarn  is just regular red heart brand. 

My question is.....can anyone help me modify the pattern so that I can make them with the larger hook and yarn??

I will be forever grateful!!!!!!!!
