Here is our new bathroom and bedroom!! We are so excited how it turned out. I wish I had taken before pictures (but I had NO patience for my camera)...The bathroom used to have pinkish chocolate dark walls and pickled wood cabinets...didnt it turn out nice!!!

Here is our new bedroom!! The walls used to be dark burgundy and everything else was burgundy and gold....I love the new really softens the room :)

Battery woes and beads :)

Hello!! It seems I have not been able to stay on top of things for the past...what...3-4 months I would guess??? I hope all of you are still out there....sorry I have totally neglecting my blog and beads!!! I was able to make a few sets on Tuesday night and made 4 more sets tonight that I am excited about sharing with you all. I have been having camera issues....I love my camera, but it will not take "regular" have to buy those high power batteries that look like regular batteries but apparently have more "kick" to them. I have had the same 4 batteries now for about 2 years and well...they just wont keep a charge anymore....long story short, I bought new high power batteries, charged those babies up...and power to my camera :( I'm not sure what is wrong, but I need to take it all to my trusty (but not close by) Ritz camera store and see if they can figure it out....I'm hoping it's just my is the one problem with that theory though....I put the old batteries in the charger tonight....charged them till the green light came on....and they powered up my camera just long enough to take a few pictures of a set of beads I made for my dear friend Kristen (long enough for 3 pictures to be exact) grrrrrr...I'm so ready for everything to work like I want it to!!!

Well....anyway, here are the beads. I had to take the pictures indoors because it's dark outside. I hope you like them Kristen!!! I think they will go perfectly with your new beautiful sunflower set!

Have a great evening everyone....I promise to get more pictures up of the 4 sets I made tonight by Saturday (when I have daylight) even if I have to charge my batteries several times!!!!
