Sweets for my sweeties...

Good morning! Sorry I have been neglecting this blog o' mine lately. I have been painting and painting....I'll attach some photos of our latest project, our living room. We decided to paint it a warmer color and have been changing out all of our trim to white, which was a huge undertaking! But I really enjoy how it's coming out, it has a much cozier feel now. I was always afraid the room would be too dark, but it's actually quite the opposite and feels larger, yet homier! If you've been thinking of changing colors, go for it! =)

Anyway before I get to that, let me share a couple of projects with you. I love Valentine's Day so much and love to be on the giving end...so I decided to create a little hanging heart to put treats in for my girls using the new Enchanting line. You can view the directions on the Pink Paislee blog today.This is a clear box that my chipboard came in from the new Enchanting line by Pink Paislee! Easy little project to create. I used the chipboard, papers and rub ons to decorate it and added some little candy words. I found a plastic mold at AC Moore, melted white chocolate colored with pink food coloring, poured it into the tray and put in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to harden. They are so easy to do! You'll find this project and lots more coming soon in the Pink Projects section at Pink Paislee, so keep checking back!
Today the next challenge will be up over at Card-a-licious. The challenge was to create a card using 3 patterned papers and orange letter stickers. I used some of the new Melissa Frances Fresh Twist papers here and also a couple of MF rub ons and chipboard heart. The sticker letters are Pink Paislee's new Captivating stickers. I added the frame rub on right over the ribbon/papers then popped up the heart with pop dots. The background circle is by Worldwin Cardstock and I added a little bit of white ink on the edges.
I'll leave you with a few pics of our living room in progress with the new paint color!

Still working on the stairs...have to paint the bead board before the carpet comes this week. Phew! Then I'll be done!
When the lights are on, it looks like a different color, but it's the same color in the living room and on the stairs!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I love decorating projects, but they are exhausting!!! Loving your choice of paint colors...can't wait to see the final results. Adorable valentine's projects! How is it you can still find time to create with paper when you are creating with a paint brush??? Amazing!

I love your living room colors. Maybe because they are similar to mine. You are right about the color looking different in different light. Mine looks totally different day and night.

Love the valentine projects too.
