New Year.....New Projects

I know it's not officially 2010 yet, but it is the week of. I normally use this time off from work to complete a few projects I've had in mind during the year, and this year is no different.

First up was the playroom re-do. Anna Kate was ready for a more grown up look and since I spend as much time in there as she does, we decided to go for something that we both like. I didn't take any pictures of the completed playroom simply because I have a few more art pieces to paint for the wall, but I'm finished, I will take pics. In the meantime, here is one piece I did yesterday.

I hand painted the zebra print on the mat and added a pink border. I'm having the next pic printed as 11x14 for it. I can't wait!

Next was a new chair for AK's desk in her bedroom. E, Jeff's mom, gave me one of her old ladder back chairs (I think she told me it was her grandfather's) a month or two ago. I painted it white and converted one of AK's many bed pillows into a cushion and tied it on. I love it!

And finally, I've picked up crocheting again. It is so relaxing to me. These are a few my latest pieces.

This is an iPod pouch. It was my first one, so don't laugh.

I'm proud of this one! There are some things I will do differently on the next one, but AK loves it, so I'm happy :c)

Yesterday was an all-day pajama day...we enjoyed doing projects and playing games. Mama won the first game of Candyland :c) Daddy won the next two. Poor AK.....we are an extremely competitive family.

And now I'm headed for the shower and Wal-Mart to get supplies for my next project for the playroom :c)
