Stuff we've been up to

My awesome friend sent this scripture tote to me. It was the first one she'd ever made and she came up with her own pattern and everything! I love it!

Luke started Joy School this month. He is having school with two little girls once a week. He has gone three time and this rotation has been at our house. He keeps asking when he'll get to leave and go to week!

I hosted a baby shower for one of my most wonderful friends! This is the banner I made with the baby's name.

Here is my first attempt at a diaper cake. I thought it turned out pretty well!

Brad got me a cricut for my birthday and I finally took the time to use it this month. I did a bunch of vinyl stuff.

I added some extra things to Nelson's BYU wall.

I finally repainted my game room!!!!! I have been wanting to do it for about a year. There have been paint sample cards tucked into the base boards for at least 7 months. Brad and I finally chose a color, bought all the supplies and I got started.

The game room was a dark red

I started with the primer

We did half of the room and then moved everything to the other side and did the other half. Brad did help me. Do you see those green walls? It turned out alot brighter that we were expecting!!
Half the room is done.

Starting the second half

The finished room! I put things up on the walls pretty quick. I had the wrought iron bar for a long time and had never put it up. I love how the vinyl names turned out. I still haven't put up pictures of us , but I'm happy that I got this far.

Our new IKEA shelf. My dad put it together for me when he was here. (I love it!)

At first I really didn't like the shade of green. It was much more intense than I was wanting, but it has defiantly grown on me. Now I really enjoy this room. (Thank goodness for hosting a baby shower! It was my motivation to get this done quick.) I still have more pictures to hang, but, I feel great about this project!
