The 'little girl' and I were just sitting in bed sketching some girls on paper. She was showing me how to do it! We love having a little time together before bedtime.

In this first image there are so many things I enjoy...I really like the black and white contrast, the moroccan lantern is gorgeous, the shape of the coffee table is so great, the arched entryway with the beautiful twisted pillars are perfect, and finally the large piece of artwork and mural on the other wall are so eye catching.
This lil' pic above shows snippets of my living room. I know I haven't shown many updates.... If you are like me you hate posting pics of your unfinished space. I could use your help so I really need to get over that. I still need an area rug...coffee table...accent chair.......curtains.......and maybe some bookshelves. I will get around to sharing soon!

Thinking about the holidays coming up.....trying to remember where I spent last Thanksgiving...my family or my husbands. This is a big debate EVERY year! Most of the time we have to look at pictures to know for sure.
Sad that this weekend we roll the clocks back...... hate when it get's darker earlier. Really hate it.
Time to eat some fresh hot cookies...see you later!!!!

Of course we should take one more look at the inspiration...remember it......*swoon* ...
Your supplies should include:
- 149 bamboo sticks (usually 2 packs)
- a round foam disc , 15/16 x 7 7/8
- 10" mirror
- black paint , Paint brush
- glue gun
- felt for backing (not a necessity, just hides the ugly foam)
- leather strip for edging of mirror or ribbon
- twine for hanging
The most expensive part of this project is YOUR LABOR!!! The longest part of the project is the first part, painting your bamboo sticks. I must admit I totally messed up the first pack. I originally spray painted all the sticks a creamy white and was going to paint the stripes over it. BUT I didn't realize the white paint I had was waterproof and therefore the stripes would not adhere.... Oopsy.
Yes YOU WILL be hand-painting the black stripes on. Place them sort of randomly...with the largest amount of black towards the bottom of the stick. You don't want them to match up exactly. I originally only used 100 sticks but today I added 45 more in and I think , 145 should be your minimum amount for this size.
Let them dry a couple hours.
But I will tell you this mirror should hang in an area that people will not bump into this!!!!
If you are going to try it, send me your links I would love to see it! And post them. If you are not the DIY type but want one, email me : )
Since I was housebound, I was able to work on a project I mentioned to you...remember the Porcupine mirror, well I finally worked on my DIY version. I'll share with you tomorrow when I can take pictures in daylight!!!!! I do love it.... it's not perfect, but it's perfect for me!
See you then!
