jaymin's ninja party

Jaymin's asian themed ninja party was a bit of a stretch for me
but I actually ended up really liking how it all came together.
And, as per usual, the delight of the birthday boy and his guests were worth the challenge. :)

our home: half bath redo

Our worthless space turned mudroom was a pretty big overhaul for us
especially because we did everything on our own.
That includes moving walls, doors, retiling and finish work.
I was pretty thrilled just to have that space so I wasn't in too big of a rush to finish the bathroom.
But it's finally done and ready to share.


This is what was behind that closed door…
And it seriously stayed like this for awhile.
I mean, I cleaned up the construction stuff…sort of.




Ahhhh…..
Much better than staring at the toilet while making dinner. ;)

What I did (after door relocation):
- removed frameless mirror
- painted vanity black
- changed knobs
- painted walls
- added towel rack and toilet paper holder

knobs and mirror - Hobby Lobby
step stool - Ikea

my baby sister turned 21.

My little, and one and only, sister turned 21 last week.
This is a big birthday no matter who you are,
but it was even more exciting as she is 11 years my junior
and now officially an "adult" in my book. :)
I know as we age the gap between us will grow smaller and this felt like the first step.
Something I'm probably way more excited about than she is. ;)
It was such a big deal, I actually made a cake. And I don't do cakes.
I was super proud of the fact that it was 3 layered and pink ombre on the inside
only to end up with no good photos of it. Bummer.
Enjoy her summery, feminine party!

Blessed Handmade Events: twinkle twinkle little star baby shower

I had so much fun doing this twinkle twinkle little star baby shower!
It was an intimate brunch for 6 and I kept the color palette simple
with pale aqua blue, natural colored muslin, gold and white.
