Didn’t get to one caught my eye post the whole summer! It’s good to be back:

I love all these diy growth charts I’ve been seeing around! Here is one from 517 Creations:cme

We made these on the first day of school, and if you are the chewy chocolate chip cookie type, you’ll love these!august 2011 004 1


Love this tutorial from John’s Journal: how to cover bamboo roman shades with fabric. They are fully functional!cme 2


And now, if you’ll excuse me, I may just go paint something yellow…

    OM! I may be just with you on the yellow paint! We close on our new-to-us house on Friday...I am not in love with the front door color. I wanted red...but yellow may be lovely as well! Thanks for the eye candy!
