Brownie Troop Investiture

Wow, I haven’t updated in awhile! My apologies! I’ve been hard at work on a website project for my friends carpet cleaning business, working a full time job and getting ready to get my list of girls for the new Brownie troop we’ve formed here. I also managed to volunteer myself for the Communications Coordinator position here in our service unit! Things are about to get very interesting.

I’m getting things together to start our meetings, and of course first we need a parent meeting and a first meeting with the girls, but one of my favorite things from my Girl Scouting days was the investiture or bridging ceremonies!

I was trying to find a stock certificate to give each girl when it came to that time and just couldn’t find one! So I made one!

Check out the results below:

If you want one customized for your girls, just let me know! I’d gladly help out 🙂

More later! CIAO!

Modern Résumé Update

We last night’s Résumé update seems to have gone well. I need to make some, as I seem to be long winded in the descriptions but for the most part I’m enjoying the look/feel of it now. I’d love some input!

My Next Project: DIY Burlap Ruffle Lamp Shade

My Next Project: DIY Burlap Ruffle Lamp Shade

A ruffled lamp shade in burlap and lace will be my next project. A quick tutorial here but I think I’ll stitch my burlap on and use some lace ruffles in between layers. I can see it in my head. Can you?

Tree Murals

How to make tree murals: Tree Murals– a great list 🙂

I’m thinking of making a picture/scrap-booked version of this up my stairwell in my apartment. Thoughts?

This is the one I’m thinking of for my stairwell

I’d love some ideas from you!

A New Dresser for Meghan… Sorta..

ImageI’ve had this sad little dresser sitting around the house for a while. It has so much potential but I’ve never done anything with it. (That’s sort of a trend in my house actually.) It started out as a garage sale find of my mom’s back in early 2002 or so. In 2003 when Grandma moved in with them, mom lined it with some floral contact paper and Grandma used it as a night stand and dresser. Most recently however, it’s been sitting in my son’s room virtually unused. Someday I hope it’ll be for fabric or craft stuff in my own office/studio but alas today it needed a new life!

My sister Meghan is coming to live with us in a few weeks and I have nothing really for her to put her things in or furniture of any sort for her really. So here comes this sad little dresser. I was looking at it and thought it really could use some cheer.

I have TONS of scrapbooking paper but thought of a set of paper specifically in purples, blues and greens with knights, castles, stars and more fairy tale fun on it!

Image

I  got some pretty contact paper at the dollar store for the inside, and pulled out my favorite bottle of Modge Podge and all the purple colored paper to go along with these two I could find!

Two hours later and the final project came out pretty good. I doubt this will be the final changes to this dresser but it should serve Meghan pretty well while she lives here.
