Happy Memorial Day

Master Bedroom




After 10 years in this house, I finally decided what I wanted to do. I had to make it acceptable to my masculine half (DH) as well! We both love water and my parents spent many days, hours,
even lived on their sailboat. It was a no-brainer once I discovered http://www.sxc.hu/profile/stockxchng . So, I just downloaded a bunch of cool Nautical pictures. I put them in Photoshop and cropped them to the size I wanted. I made them 300
dpi and uploaded the finished pics to Walgreens or Scrapbooks to share. I bought two 16x20
frames, four 10x13, three 12x12, six 8x10 frames. The hardest part was putting them on
the wall in the layout I wanted. I ended up making templates the exact size of the pictures and
moving those around before I hammered in the first nail. All in all, I only had to repeat one hole.

Also, special thanks to Bon and Sara (my teenage interior decorator).

Now, I've just brought a little piece of Florida into our mid-western home!

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
