must. glitter. everything. (oh JOY)

It's been a while since I've done some legitimate crafting. With the house buying and the painting and the moving and the unpacking and the life-ing (totally a verb... trust me), I've been a bit busy.

Now I've done some small projects, but we all know what makes for an actual legitimate craft. Glitter. Lots and lots of glitter.

Love Sticks

Random acts of kindness are my favorite. I get a lot of self satisfaction from doing things to make others happy. And since Chris is so easily amused, it doesn't take much on my part to make him smile.


Granted, if he's going to buy my roses, bring me chocolate covered strawberries, and stand outside in the cold darkness to replace my light fixtures all in the same week, I need something that's quick and simple to return the love. That's where the love sticks come in.

I love painting.  I find it enjoyable and relaxing and rewarding.

Which is probably why I was okay purchasing a house painted an awful color.

I originally assumed that the previous homeowner chose the less than desirable shade.  But after snooping through a parade of homes house down the street, it looked as though the builder was responsible for it. And that explains why EVERY room was that same color.

The House on Lynnrae

So I decided to keep up the facade that I'm a real, live, actual adult and bought a house. Crazy, right?

Let me remind you, I'm one of those girls that had never even mowed a lawn.  Seriously.  Never.

(My older brother always did it, so stop totally judging me.  I won't blame you for judging me just a little. But only a little.  That is all that's allowed.)

Now let me clarify, when I say I bought a house, I really mean I bought a bachelor pad.  Mostly,  the place is great.  It is relatively new,  structurally sound,  and perfectly Michelle-sized. But the last owner decided to perform a few questionable DIY projects that turned out less than desirable.

I will be the first to admit,  I have a very eclectic design style. I'm not really going to love anything unless it's completely mine. Which gave me the perfect excuse to redo EVERYTHING.  Yeah,  that's right.  Everything.

So stay tuned for my wonderful before and afters as I tear my way through the house :)
