Look what I did today

Today was very productive. Cameron has been in need of a hair cut, so I took him to SportsClips because I had a coupon for a free boys hair cut. I guess you get what you pay for because I could have done a better job (and have been doing so) in my sleep than the girl did. My poor boy has a hack job of a hair cut and just a week before his birthday.

I went to Jo-Ann's & Micheals (sorry my dear Hobby Lobby, there was a sale) and picked out these fun fabrics for a skirt for myself.

I will be using this tutorial from Freshly Picked I am way excited to see how they turn out. At Micheal's I picked up some wooden letters to jazz up our hall wall after being inspired by this tutorial on Samster Mommy. Can you tell that I love craft blogs. Those are just two of some of my new favorites.
I came home and Cameron & I painted the letters to spell out "I am a child of God". I weeded, raked and trimmed the trees & shrubbery along our driveway today & picked some fresh oregano, rosemary & thyme from our garden to give as a thank you to someone who wrote a letter of recommendation for Brian (the guy likes to cook). After dinner, FHE & putting the kids to bed I painted the circles on the wall & with left over paint painted a star wall hanger that I have been meaning to for awhile for Cameron to hang up his painting smock.
After the wall dried I hung up the letters.

Now, all that is left to complete the wall will be to paint two picture frames ivory & put photos of my two beautiful children & hang it up. I can't wait to get it done. We have lived here 2 and a quarter years and still most of my wall are bare it drives me nuts. So, in the last few months I have been putting things up & slowly my house is feeeling more and more like a home.
