Pantry re-do & Homecoming Jazz..

Am I the only one in the world that repins tons of things on pintrest and gets overwhelmed by ideas? For me, I really think pintrest does more harm than good.  Now that I officially found a website to waste more of my life away than I already have with facebook, I constantly want to re-do my entire house! So I tried my first go at it with re-doing my pantry.
Here are a few of my inspiration pics from pintrest...

I didn't get very good before pics of my pantry, but believe me it was a total disaster!! I painted the whole thing white, threw out a bunch of old stuff and completely re-organized and put things in containers.  I found some lilly pulitzer contact paper at tj maxx for $4.99 and it completely made the space. Everything else came from target, walmart, & dollar tree. TOTAL COST.....$25!!! I'm still working on a few things. I want to go to the container store and look for some unique coke dispensers and things like that, but overall this space did a complete 180!

And....My homecoming corsage I made for Magnolia's game. My friend Hillary & I got together and made our own, just because we love crafting together! Here are the finished products...

Not sure why this pic is sideways, but here's an up close of mine.

There's a mum under there somewhere....

Here's a pic of my new fall decor in my kitchen.  I love my new plate I found at Pier 1!

That's all for now, but we have a lot going on in the next couple of weeks, so check back soon for updates!   I I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Better late than never!

This blog post is long over due, but between school, football games, and personal stuff, I have been slammed every day with something going on.  I can't even remember the last day I had to myself where I would just lay around and do "nothing".  Like so many sweet southern women say in a time like this..."honey.... I am TOO blessed to be stressed!"  I am trying to live by this everyday, but sometimes I forget every word in that but stressed! 

I have been very crafty lately in what little free time I do have though!  Here are some pics of my newest crafts and inspirations (added note:  If you would like to use my ideas for your own use, feel free! I post my ideas for my sweet FRIENDS to be inspired too! :) 

Project #1 Halloween sparkle!

I came up with both of these ideas on my own and got all of my materials from pier 1 & hobby lobby.

Spray painted sticks (black) from the yard add a little whimsy to my entry way.

Table decor from Pier 1....

Hobby lobby deco mesh w/orange sparkle witch's broom makes for a spooky entry...

Next blog posting....pantry re-do & more!
