beYOUtiful

Recently, we have been cleaning out and redecorating our house. One of the rooms that we changed was the bathroom. We changed the colors to navy, coral, and gray. Previously, we had pictures hanging on the wall but they did not match the new decor. So I decided that I would paint a canvas to hang up in there. I looked up some sayings to put in a bathroom and the one I liked the most was ‘beyoutiful’. So I bought a canvas and started painting and I think it turned out great! I hope you like it as well. IMG_0128

My Market Experience

As you know, I went to market at the beginning of this week and I loved it. At first it was a bit overwhelming because everywhere you turned was a store. There are three buildings, a home, gift, and apparel. Each building has many stories. And when I say many, the gift building was eighteen stories high. On each level, stores line the hallways that go in a square and bring you back to the elevators where you began. Below I have included a picture of the apparel building just to give you an idea of what it looked like. Prices for items were also fabulous! Since it is market, items are already marked down to the wholesale price, and most places sold it 50% off of that price. I found some great deals! Needless to say, I spent all of my money. However, I did purchase a lot of Christmas presents. It was a blast and I enjoyed having an all girls weekend. I cannot wait to go back!

I’m going to Market!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is getting into the fall spirit because fall and cold weather are definitely beginning to set in and I love getting to bring out the sweaters, boots, and scarves! On another note, I’m not sure if any of you know about Americamart in Atlanta, Georgia, but only two more days, and I will be there! For those of you who do not know what it is, it is a big building with tons of shops that sells items at wholesale prices. The only way to go is if you have a business. Each owner can invite a few people to come with them which is the way I am getting to go! I am so excited to get started on some Christmas presents early! In my next post, I will follow up on how it went! I hope you all have a blessed week!

crochet coffee cozy

Fall is in full swing and October is already coming to an end. Everywhere, pumpkins are being carved and used for decorations. This past week my sister decided to crochet a few coffee sleeves that she saw on pinterest. The pumpkin sleeve ended up turning out great. I, however, have decided that I will leave the crocheting up to her. I hope you like it and if you want to make one yourself just follow the example in the link provided. http://claireabellemakes.com/2013/09/27/crochet-pumpkin-coffee-cup-sleeve/

Appliquéd Sweatshirt

Monogrammed initials are becoming very popular lately. Almost everywhere you go, you see something that is monogrammed or appliquéd.  Not too long ago, I saw a sweatshirt at a boutique that I loved and just had to have. It was gray and had big initials in the center. Since I just learned how to sew, I had to try to make this myself! With my sister’s assistance, I got it made and I think it turned out great!IMG_0110IMG_0111

Burlap Door Hanger

Fall is beginning to set in with cooler mornings leading to a warm afternoon and cool night breezes. Stores everywhere are decorated and shelves are full with fall decorations. Not too long ago, I saw an acorn door hanger and I fell in love with it. So I decided I would make it myself! I ended up making one for my sister and my mom and they turned out great! I hope you love it as much as I do!acorn

First time Sewing!

Hey everyone! This week, I learned something new. A couple of years ago, my sister got into sewing and started making a lot of children’s clothing and accessories. About six months ago, she bought herself a machine that monograms and embroiders and she loves it. Anyways, one of my friends is having a baby later this year and I have been asking my sister to make some burp cloths for her little boy. She said that she would but only if I helped her make them and that is when I learned how to sew. Below are pictures of three burp cloths I made and a backpack that I put his name on. I think they turned out great considering it was my first time sewing. I hope you like them!IMG_3838IMG_3839IMG_3840IMG_3842
