Fall DIY Pumpkins

My obsession as of late is spray paint.  I wanted  Fall decorations but didn't want to spend much at all. I bought these plastic pumpkins for $5, and had spray paint left over from other projects. I love how they turned out!  Gives a nice sense of autumn with some  classy colors :)

Baby Quilts

Here are a few of the baby quilts I made for some great friends.  Baby Nina and Baby Cooper.  We choose fabrics that represented both of them so they are both a little different.  Lots of work, but love how they turned out!  I originally saw this quilt over at Moda Bake Shop, I don't follow it exactly but it's a great overview.

My New Dremel

My guilty husband knows just how to cheer me up :) my version of power tools!  I need some ideas for what projects to do with this baby... ready, set, go!

DIY Kitchen Island

We recently moved into a new house that we are in love with.... except for the very small amount of counter space that it has.  We started looking at options for kitchen islands and quickly decided that we were going to try a DIY option.  Professional islands were just too expensive and not quite what we needed.  We first wanted to just find a nice table at a thrift shop, give it a paint job and wheels and call it done.  Alas, we couldn't find a table we liked.  We then decided to buy the unfinished cabinets at Home Depot (on sale, woot woot!).  We added panels sanded, stained, sealed, and added wheels.  Next was the counter top.  Super easy and I love how it turned out!  We bought 1 long board, cut it into 3rd's, glued it together with Liquid Nails, sanded, Stained (x2) and sealed.  Viola!!  We have a new kitchen island.  If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask :)

Perfect Winter Wedding

It finally happened Kyle and I got married, January 12, 2013!  We were so lucky to be surrounded by our amazing family and friends.  I will let the photos do the talking :)  The wedding was at La Caille in Sandy, Utah and our photographer was Jacque Lynn Wedding Photography.  The bouquets and boutonnieres were done by Vanessa at Decoration Inc. in Salt Lake City, She was AMAZING!
