Just Checking In

After much searching and experimenting I've come to the conclusion that I just need to hunt down the installation CD for the photo editing program I had on the PC and install it on this one too.  If I remember right it had a Mac version on it.  I just can't seem to find a program that I like as much as I did that one.  So....I'll be up and running again soon, I promise!

And just so I don't leave you photo-less for too long, here's a peek at what the next post will be once I get all set up - my winter decor and a Snowman Party!

We Interrupt This Program.....

Okay, just wanted to let you know that blogging has been temporarily interrupted.  We recently upgraded from our PC, which we've had for about 7 years and was a bit of a dinosaur where computers are concerned, to a MacBook, which I'm loving.  But, we're still trying to figure out how to get all the info and pictures from the PC transferred to the Mac, and I'm going to have to find a new photo editing program.  Maybe now would be the time to try the free version of Photo Shop or Picnik?   Anyhoo...I just wanted you to know I'm still here, and I'll be back.......right after these messages.

Best of 2011

Donna over at Funky Junk Interiors is having a "Best of 2011" link party so I thought I'd join in the fun and do a little recap.

My favorite home decor project of the last year was definitely the trunk/coffee table redo.  It went from looking like this...

To looking like this.

The new paint job shows off details that were hidden before.  I'm loving the new look! 
(You can see more details and pictures here)

One of my other favorites (and the 2nd most popular post) was the Edison Lamp I made.
(more details here)

Another great project from this year was the vintage style tray I created.

I'm also still loving the suitcase table I was able to put together for $4.

By far, the most popular post (with 1,845 page views so far!) is my daughter's Pinkalicious birthday party.

5 months later and it still gets an average of 20 hits a day.

And the 3rd most popular post is this magnet board I made for $1.
(more about that here)

I started this blog back in March, so I haven't even been doing this for a full year yet, but I'm looking forward to another fun year of sharing projects.
