Hello Mint,!!

This weekend has been extra busy, but the good kind of busy. The kind of busy that leaves you feeling incredibly accomplished!

Friday we went to Hobby Lobby, grocery shopping and out to dinner and then I worked on my journal page (which took me about 4 hours), while skyping with my mom. I will be posting (so you can see the decoration) the page on next Fridays journal post, but I'll be blurring out the words.

Saturday was paint day. I love decor change, maybe more than I should. I am constantly moving stuff around and changing it up a bit. I think its good for the soul!! I woke up extra early and taped off my entire craft room, moved all the stuff to the center (it was a mess) and then went to the salon. hehe

After getting more black low-lights put in (that I still can't see) I decided to dye the entire bottom part of my hair black and put layers in (next month). I'm going for the chocolate dipped look.

So after my salon trip I came home and started painting. I got it all finished and even 90% back together!!! I am so pleased with myself for finishing it in one day (and all by myself I must say), this room is HUGE!!! If you put your mind to it you can get it done!!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE mint and had to match it perfectly to my nail polish. So that's exactly what I did. I trekked to Walmart and matched paint samples to my polish. It matches perfectly!!!! I compared it to my toes since my nails are pink right now. and yes, that's a random freckle on my toe! I love it!

I was going for the fresh and clean look and did it!! I absolutely love how it makes all my wall decor pop!!! Mint has my heart right now!!

I still have a few pictures I want to move around so I haven't hung a few up. I'm thinking of adding something to that wall, some sort of border at the top, maybe a small bunting? If anyone has any ideas, feel free to share them with me!!! plz plz plz!

Oh and a tidbit, the bottom half of the wall is made out of concrete and not easy to paint, so I just left it white. I think it looks nice :)

After finishing my studio me and the hubs watched Chocolat and I loved it.. Can't say as much for the hubby since he passed out about halfway through it. :P

This morning Joseph surprised me with heart-shaped blueberry pancakes, they were delicious!!!

Also, I wanted to share these super cute pics Janel sent me with the whale I made her. Aren't they so cute???

Janel and her new BFF Boris

I'm off to go work on today's journal prompt, and make a few things for some special people in my life!!

  25. I love it all!!!! Love the color! SO many pandas lolol

  26. I love the new look! The mint and white really make everything pop. Isn't it amazing how much you can accomplish when you set your mind to it?? We painted our bedroom walls and ceiling in an evening. Crazy!! Oh love the random freckle!! Too cute!

  27. I love your mint paint!!! I just painted my room today. I still need to do a second coat though. Your space looks awesome :-)

  28. Most excellent! I love the way the mint makes all your decor pop. And I have craft room envy, yours is SO BIG! Mine is dinky and just stuffed to the rafters. Even if I painted you couldn't see it since I have shelves full of supplies to the roof. You did a great job!
