{clock makeover}


I've had my eye on cute clocks like this one for awhile now...

                                                   source

So when I came across a cute little wood clock and a paper doily, a lightbulb went off in my head.

And I came up with this...


So cute, right?

And this project couldn't have been any simpler. The hardest part was figuring out how to get the hands off. And I'm embarrassed to say that it was NOT hard. Ha :)

Here it was before...


I took off the hands and painted them a fun shade of blue {totally forgot to take a picture of this...but you can figure that out, right?}

Then I took a paper doily, cut a hole to fit it over the mechanism, and used mod podge to adhere it {a layer under and on top of the doily}...



Yeah...I know it covers part of the 10. Bummer. But oh well...I still love it.

Then I reattached the hands...


And voila!


I still haven't picked a home for it, but it looks pretty darn cute on our mantel...


And this was the cheapest.project.ever...the clock was a freebie, and I already owned the paint and the doily.

Can't beat that! :)

Have you been working on any fun and free DIY projects?

{playing dress up}


Oh.my.goodness. 

This week is kicking my butt friends.

Lots of events at work...the boys started a new preschool schedule...pure craziness. I don't even know how I managed to put together decent outfits.

I do have to say that planning my outfits is a fun distraction when life gets this busy. It is one of my little rituals that I do before I go to sleep {that and getting the coffee maker ready} that helps me to get out of bed a little bit easier in the morning.

Cute outfits and coffee...my two sanity savers. *smile*

So here's what I've been wearing lately...

#1...
Kohl's dress // maurices cardigan // TJ Maxx skinnies // Target boots


#2...
maurices top // Dillards cardigan // Sears skirt // Target boots



#3...
Kohl's top, earrings & boots // Target cardigan // TJ Maxx skinnie

Etsy ring

#4...
Target sweatshirt & boots // Kohl's jeans // Etsy earrings


#5...
Kohl's sweater // TJ Maxx cords // maurices flats 

earrings c/o A Tad Monroe

How is your week going friends? Do you have any night time or morning rituals that help you keep your sanity?

Oooh and today is the last day to enter the $40 shop credit giveaway from A Tad Monroe!! What are you waiting for? Head on over there now! :)

{sunday morning}


It has been awhile since my last Sunday morning post...I've gotten away from sharing pics of the boys lately and I need to be better about that! 

We enjoyed sleeping in this morning and now the boys are watching Spiderman while I enjoy my coffee...


What is your Sunday morning looking like?

{Giveaway with A Tad Monroe}


Are you ready for a giveaway?!

Today I'm excited to be partnering with A Tad Monroe to give one lucky reader a $40 shop credit!


Are you a fan of ATM on Facebook? If you aren't, and you love jewelry, you should be!

The ladies behind ATM, Lauren and Denise, host a weekly trunk show on Facebook every Tuesday night starting at 8 pm.

Here are a few of their great pieces...


Here's how it works...simply like their page, and stay tuned each Tuesday night at 8 p.m. CST to buy bracelets, necklaces, rings and more. They post photos of their pieces; you pick the one(s) you want; and the first people on the list get to buy!

And everything in their shop is $25 and under. Love that.

Lauren and Denise were so sweet to send me a necklace and earring set that I am in love with...here they are in action...


I love the versatility of these pieces...they go with so many of my outfits!

So are you ready to try to win some of their pieces for yourself? Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below!
