A Peek into our new "Creative Room" and a Speak Louder Project UPDATE

Here's the deal ya'll, I'm just going to break it down for ya nice and easy.

First, let me THANK those of you who have given toward the Speak Louder Project to give a pair of shoes to an underprivileged child! Brandon and I have sowed our seed right along with you and are so excited to see God work! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

That being said, we are not quite at our goal just yet, almost, not really, actually we have a ways to go. SO, I gotta get a little K-Love pledge drive on you guys now.

You've heard my heart, read my plea's...now let's just get REAL.

If we do not meet our goal, a child or 5 or 10 will not receive new shoes....I do not want that to happen! Do you? I don't think so Tim....so listen...

Can you give 10 dollars? Cause if so and we can get 50 people to give 10 dollars we will reach our goal! And I would be so grateful and I would cry and I would actually sleep tonight.

The paypal is set up to be super EASY. Trust me, my Mom used it with absolutely no problems and that is a down right miracle. Seriously.

You do not have to have a paypal account. Just click this link, enter in the amount and your info and you are DONE!






If you would also please leave a comment and share how you took the step forward to speak louder, to plant a seed, to bless- PLEASE DO! Let's hear how and why you were inspired to give, lets encourage each other and inspire one another to join in!

While I was writing this, my sweet husband decided to put up a challenge on his facebook...for every dollar given, he will match it up to 1000$! This means he is giving out of an account I am unaware of...uh, babe? Just kidding, he just sold something that means a lot to him and I'm assuming this is where that money will come from. Thank you babe!!


***If you don't care about my room re-do then you can stop reading here, I'll forgive you***

So, because I know I have a lot of nosey readers and because I know I started talking about my room re-do like a month ago and forgot to mention it again, I thought I'd offer a little peak into the room. It is mostly done and I LOVE it.

It has truly been a labor of love this thing...yeesh.
I'll write more about it when I show the whole room, but for now, I'll give you a little sneak peak.

Do you remember that time I said I couldn't sew? Well GUESS WHAT. Something came over me and I decided to give it a whirl. I started by just making one of my pom-poms and then sewed it to a 1.99 IKEA pillow....then I added 2 more.


I'm sorry what? Stinken cute? I KNOW!

AND THEN I decided to try my hand at making the coordinating cushion. What's that? A cushion too, you say?!
Yep!



This chair was found at the thrift store (remember-trendier, cuter word for GOODWILL)...it got a nice wash down , a fresh coat of paint and voila...it is now where I sit when I'm writing this here blog.



8 dollah ya'll....Well I'm not counting the fabric in that total. It's Heather Bailey fabric I purchased through Etsy. I've had it for about a month afraid to do anything with it because I love it so much.

Which reminds me, I also decided to put it behind my new favorite print and LOVE how it looks with it much better than the yellow mat I showed you it with, don't you?




Since I had my camera out I thought I'd take a picture of the wall it's on.


It's my favorite wall in the room. I made the pennant too.
I know, stop it right? I really did.
I'll tell you how, along with the rest of the room some time next week.

Ok so, Enter my GIVEAWAY, make a DONATION call it a day.
