Diy fail. Ikea wire rod with heavy fabric doesnt work. Trying to remember bob ross no mistakes....just happy accidents. So annoyed to have to start all over!
My mom gave me 2 boxes of cafe lights from costco for christmas 3 years ago when we had house plans. Excited to light up the deck and cross that job off the list. Bring on summer! #hometodiein
Trying to get back in Project mode and finish up things left undone when we moved in. Finished staining/sealing the attic railings! #hometodiein #atticplayroom #timeforreesescup
Chicken and a snail. It was an amazing morning with cousins until the chicken pooped all over her favorite dress.
I'm supposed to get back in construction mode and tackle all the building projects we didn't finish before we moved in....like shelves in closets. But I'd rather start my next stained glass window. Maybe I'll just play my little ponies with my girls and do neither today. #hometodiein #masterbath #stainedglass
Messing with my blog today and remembered this painting I made for my husband's waiting room at work. If he ever leaves that job I am taking it back! #wherethewildthingsare #wildrumpus
Made slime and the new game is laying under it as it slowly drips off the counter until you get slimed.
Lynette made this custom African wedding jacket for a friend she boxes with. More pics on the blog!

My pointe shoes sat in a basket in my mom's living room for a decade, then in a box in our garage for 6 years. I gave a lot away, but couldn't get rid of all of them. I never thought I'd ever display them, as it seemed like Uncle Rico dreaming of the past. But they're now going to live in the art corner of the attic. They tell a story, most have the date I last wore them and ballets I performed in them written on the sole, and represent finding myself and who I wanted to be. Ballet isn't part of my life at all anymore, but it was a crucial part of becoming who I am. #hometodiein #atticplayroom #danceratheart
Holding her baby cousin. #squashed
It's probably an April fools joke the weather is actually sunny and warm today, so I unboxed the summer clothes even though it will probably snow tomorrow. Trilobite stamped circle skirt I made a few years ago after being inspired by @miriamtribe in her printmaking class at sewing summit.
After dinner activity....otoscope checks. #medicalkids
Swinging in the attic. #hometodiein #atticplayroom #ropeswing
Packing my fabric and came across a forgotten and highest quality piece of fabric I've ever owned, from my sister. I hope I dare to cut it one day. #georgecostanza #ofcourseitscashmere
Packing up my craft room and found a folder of past watercolor attempts. The fat boy is my husband, from a childhood photo with his brother. Painting is something I would wish i was good at. I think I'm right up there with napoleon dynamite as far as portraits go.
