all grown up

My sweet cousin Sage's senior year is ending fast. 

She will soon be entering the real world and I know she will excel at anything she puts her mind to.

I had the honor of getting to take her before prom pictures which will hopefully prepare me for next year when I will see my sister off to her senior prom as well... I will be emotional

Beautiful isn't she?

a little paint

I love taking something average and sprucing it up a little.

Alan and I were given this 70's  painting that was a little pretty but it was so covered in dust we couldn't really see where we could put it in the home.

I went to Home Depot and got a little tester of Martha Stewart's Vintage Gold Paint and started practicing on some 50 cent frames.

I liked it so much I then tackled the big one.

It brightened the whole painting.

It's resting place for now...

A lot has happened since I last posted including an unfortunate trip to the ER.

One Saturday I was unpacking some coffee cups...alas they arrived broken.

I decided to pick up the box and they proceeded to fall out the bottom.

I tried to catch it with my arm and this is what occured...

Nastiness I know...

Wrapped up until we could get to the ER


Staples removed, but it slightly resembles the Phantom of the Opera's face
