Altered wood frames...and a letter

I am linking up to Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage
Before & After Party at Thrifty Decor Chick

So I am pretty sure everyone knows about the $1 wooden frames from Michaels but I just discovered them. I ventured out from the rock that I live under the other day and had a little fun at Michaels.

This is what they looked like before.
They are 8" frames with a 3.5" x 3.5" spot for the picture.

I used distress ink on this one all around it. No paint at all. The paper is attache using Mod Podge. The little saying in the corner was made using a clear stamp and some white cardstock that I inked up using distress ink.
I colored the edges and the inside of this with a sharpie. :-) I used some black ink around the edges on the paper. I made the little flowers myself.

I inked the tips of the roses and added a bit of glitter glue to them. I painted the back of this one using my free paint sample from Vlaspar. The color is called Rapids.
The paper was decoupaged on and the back and edges were painted with another sample from Valspar :-) I got the flowers from, which is a very bad place, in a very good way :-)

Have a blessed day!

Wedding Ceremony

So here are some pics of the actual ceremony.
I absolutely loved the ceremony & we had the best reverend ever.
So many people complemented us on how good he was.
It was such a special time.

Wedding Post

Alright so I have pretty much neglected my blog since I was so busy with wedding stuff and...well just stuff in general.
I thought it would be fun to do a few posts of the wedding.
For now I think I will just do one post with a bunch of pictures and then maybe I will do a few individual ones on different aspects of the wedding,

I gotta say though, the wedding was better then I could have ever imagined!

This ring is my Great Great Great maybe one more Great Grandmothers engagement ring :-)

Alright so about 3 weeks ago I was cooking some raviolli for dinner.
It came time for me to drain the ravioli so I grabbed the pot and proceeded to take it over to the sink to empty it out.

As I was pouring the STUPID pot I spilled the BOILING HOT water all over my stomach.
It hurt sooooo bad. I could feel my skin boiling, burning, etc.
I automatically lifted my shirt off my stomach (which I later learned I should have just left it there) and I saw the huge skin thing hangin off my belly.

It looked like a huge blister just had popped. If I left my shirt alone it would have formed a blister. I mean really though, who would just leave something on themselves that is causing them pain...My first reaction was to get the stupid thing off.

Over the next few days it really started to look...gross.....I am pretty sure it was infected at one point or another because I saw....stuff....coming from it...yuck!
So after we got our taxes done we figured we would pop on over to the urgent care that is about 1.5 miles from our house. We could not find it, so we went home. Apparently it closed.

So I have just been putting antibiotic ointment on it constantly and keeping it covered at night. It is slowly starting to heal. it itches a lot on the outside of the burn.

I am taking a antibiotic, oh but its not for my's for THE STUPID FINGER INFECTION I GOT ( look up paronychia).

So I just wanted to post about this because I am pretty sure my husband is tired of hearing me complain about either my burn hurting/itching and my finger being so swollen I could barely bend it.

Etsy Shop

I just wanted to post a few of the things that I have listed in my Etsy shop.
I have been wanting to start up my shop since last year and I just recently got enough courage to list items. I really enjoy creating things for my shop.

Thanks for looking!

Here is the link to my Etsy shop :-)

Been A Long Time.....

Wow it sure has been a long time since I have written on this blog!

So much has happened since oh..July of last year.

The wedding was awesome!!

Nothing else major to report..haha

I am trying out a new little business venture idea.

I have started selling things on Etsy.

Started this a few days sale yet, but I am hopeful.

Here is the link

I currently only have my magnetic post it note holders listed but I will be getting new things up shortly.

I have so many ideas running around in my head of things I am going to make it is hard to keep track of it all!

I also have started a new blog for my new shop/crafty stuff.

I am going to use that blog to talk about things in my shop, eventually have some youtube videos on it and just talk about all things crafty.

I will also be hosting some giveaways there too. Have to get some followers for that first though...haha

Well I hope everyone is having a blessed day!
