Yummy goodness

I finally have my new room done! I am so in love with how it turned out! It's very girly without being over the top. It's hard to capture the true color (the 1st pic is as close as I can get it) but think granny smith apple green with a touch of classic pink and dark pink/red.

here's the view from the doorway...

to the left...

the ribbon station is made up of a tape cassette holder I bought at the thrift store for 50 cents painted white, perfect size for holding spools of ribbon, and a key holder with the strips of ribbon held together with binder clips and rings. I love thrift store finds!

I still need to add some things to this wall. I'm thinking a magnetic board, calendar and maybe some pictures. I also am going to make some curtains. I have something specific in mind so it's just a matter of lucking up on it.

I am so excited to finally have this done and the rest of my house put back in order. I can't wait to start scrapbooking again!

Some more yummy goodness....

It's amazing how the love of a hobby can bring a group of people together from all over to form friendships with people you've never even met. I got the sweetest box in the mail from the gals over at Scrapgarden. They all came together and sent gifts for the new baby, me, and even something for Ben. I didn't get a baby showeer with this pregnancy, so this was as extra special for me. Here are the goodies they sent...


blankets and towels (don't you just love the ducky towel?)

a pampering gift from bath & body works for me

and the most thoughtful gift of all, handmade thank you cards for me to send out

There was also a Lightening McQueen car in there for Ben, but as you can image it was immediately snatched up and he hasn't let go of it yet. I can't express enough how grateful I am that these girls did this for me. I am very blessed!

Oh, and if my day hasn't been sweet enough....Ben and I made a goopy, oozing, dripping carmel cake that may not win any prizes for looks.....but it sure tastes good! :)

9 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:

Love your scrap room colors, Tabitha! I have that green in my laundry room and accented it with a dark red too. Soooooo pretty! I know about painting stripes (have them in my kitchen) so I appreciate yours. ;)
