I {heart} mod podge

I was introduced to mod podge while in Utah for my craft boutique. I can't believe I've never used it before! I am totally hooked and I can't get enough of it. I made a couple of cute frames and I'm wondering what I can do next. Any fun ideas??

The stars aren't aligned exactly, but that's okay, I think it turned out cute!

I made this cute frame for Jetts room {pics of the nursery coming soon!}

Dining Chair Reupholster Project

I have been meaning to reupholster my dining chairs for the longest time. I found some super cute fabric at JoAnn's several months ago and I finally found some time while Jett was sleeping to get to it. I love the way they turned out, and I'm so happy I finally did it. Now that I have fresh bright fabric on my chairs, I don't know how I lived with the chairs before. I reupholstered them a couple of years ago and thought I loved the fabric, but looking back it was so blah. About a year ago I stained the table and painted the chairs antique white. I love it. I like a touch of country here and there {without all the frills that make the look of country look stuffy}! A few months ago someone spilled red soda on one of the chairs so they were totally filthy! I love my table now, and the fabric on the chairs goes so well with the colors in my kitchen/front room. Next project... painting the boring cappuccino end tables in the front room.

Baby Jett!! All the hard work with the boutique paid off... big time! Five days after I returned home we got a call from our caseworker with the big news. He told us a birthmother had chosen us and to pack our bags because we were going to Utah! Holy crap!!! The next week was a whirlwind and we couldn't keep the days straight. We got to meet sweet Jett's wonderful birthmother and her family. It was an amazing experience and we are so blessed to have this little guy in our lives. He was born June 11.2010, weighed 6 lb. 5 oz., 19" long- BEAUTIFUL!! Our family is complete. We are so in love!
