Flip Flops and a Clean Living Room...

180 days until I get to change my last name :) (Just in case you were wondering...)

I really love being crafty, even though I don't get to be crafty very often. Last week, I spent many hours making these as gifts for my students at the dance studio (Every year I make a gift for my Mini Company)...



Aren't they just adorable? Funky little flip flops, for funky little girls. Next time I make funky flip flops for some little diva, I will use more stuff on them. However, when you have to assemble 11 pairs, your fingers feel like they are going to fall off, and you are sneezing from all of the little fabric threads that you have stuck up your nose.

Saturday, my sweet fiance did so much around the house. He worked in the yard, bought pavers for a new sidewalk, and CLEANED THE ENTIRE LIVING ROOM! This usually would not be a big deal to most people, but let me tell you, this living room was a wreck. There were piles of junk taller than our makeshift coffee table! There is still much to be done in this living room (i.e. art, end tables, coffee table, new rug, eventually new furniture...) BUT, I am showing you what we are living with for now...



Isn't it kind of sad? I don't like that color blue, but it was free, and it will have to do for now! The trunk has character, but doesn't really work in this space. And the rug is just so puny :) I can't believe that I am actually posting this on here, but I think only Leah reads this, so it is ok - she knows what it is like getting started in your own place! ANYWAYS, isn't it clean? No mess! No piles! I love my man :)

I think that room looks FANTASTIC!!!

I like that blue sofa--think the trunk looks amazing and the color on your walls is just beautiful! The white fireplace really pops too!

You have to promise that you will put nothing else but that fabulous black letter S up on that mantle! Nothing could look as great or make a better visual statement!--Love it :)!
