creative surge...

So I decided that it's about time to put something up that I've put together. A couple weeks ago, I got really bored with Ryan's blank wall in his new bedroom. I had purchaed a DCWV wall rub-on quote to put up but didn't like how small it was. So I decided to alter it a bit... and had quite a bit of fun making this canvas...

I used three canvases, red, blue and brown paint and the DCWV rub-on quote. Now his room doesn't look quite so boring anymore!

I'm working on getting back into the groove with school again- it's a lot harder being married. I just want to be at home with my little boy and wait for my husband to get home. I do love classes... it's just different this time around. Knowing that i still have four years left is hard. But I know it'll be worth it...

Well I'm going to have a movie night with Ryan tonight with yummy popcorn. Here's a project I did last christmas for Mychal. I got the idea from Taylor Swift's song "Love Story" and the lyrics of the song are throughout the book (including the title). I had so much fun making it.

I started with just a plain white book that I had ordered back from Bare Books a long time ago. (I adore these books, I use them all the time) Then I used a ton of random tags throughout the book to add journaling, more pictures and even a few memorabilia things like our movie tickets and wrappers to the chocolates he gave me. I was quite happy with how it turned out... here's a sampling of it. I think one of my favorite things about it is the beautiful velvet ribbon that I used on the spine of the book- a goodie my mom had picked up for me as a gift somewhere.

Alrighty... off to watch the 'doggy' movie.

lovin' me some pictures...

so i'm apparantly terrible at updating... I told you so though.

We've been gone to North and South Carolina for the past week for my grandma's funeral. I can't say it was the best trip we've ever been on :( But we did find some good moments. She lived in North Carolina for as long as I can remember and while we were up there, we took Ryan to Tweetsie Railroad. Mimi used to take us when we were little- it was Kyle's favorite place to go. So we decided that we had to take one last trip up there and let Ryan see it because Mimi would have done so herself if she had had the chance.

South Carolina was absolutely beautiful. We got to see where my dad grew up and all my family. Our cousin's house was beautiful and right on the lake. We got to swim in their amazing pool and just relax. We got to see Cromer's Peanuts in all it's glory. :) Mychal wants to take it over.

I told Mychal we should move there someday. It's perfect.

Anyways, so I got home and my wonderful friends had cleaned our house for us. :)

There were also two CD's on our counter that said "Mychal and Kelsey". I squealed when I saw them- no, really, I did. I knew exactly what they were and I was so right. My photographer for our wedding- the fabulous Jamie Fender- had sent our pictures with Virginia. I was so excited. I'd already seen them on her website but now I HAVE them. I can't wait to get them printed... here's a peak of some favorites...

How amazing is she?? I was just so psyched when I saw how beautifully they turned out. It made my day.
