"Slimming" Black Rooms

While seeking inspiration for interior colors, I have often read that one must simply open the doors to her closet. The color of clothes that you tend to gravitate towards is the secret to painting a room that will soothe and comfort you.

For years I have opened that closet door hoping to find the right color to paint my rooms.....denim (I don't even really like blue and NOTHING in my house is blue) or black! Everything else in my closet is Black! I could never paint a room that color.........for heaven's sake - my room doesn't need to "look slimming".

Well think again I tell myself.......! You don't have to live in a loft in SoHo or be a total Goth to use black in interior design.

I love these one word: G L A M !

I bet her and Becks have a posh black room in one of their homes!

What a Give Away

I just found this blog.........and I love the giveaway.............go fast check it out!

Have you ever been "booed"?

It's time for some "booing fun". To "boo" someone is simple!

First, make a sign! And thanks to Cindy at Skip to my Lou. You can make this cute sign in about 2 minutes.

You can download Cindy's sign here.

Once you have downloaded ...... print the sign out. I just used plain white typing paper.

I then cut off the white edges and applied spray adhesive to fuse the sign to purple cardstock. Next - fold in half.

I then cut along the dotted line, following it to the circle. Continue to cut out the circle (this is necessary so that the sign can hang from the door knob).

I embellished mine with purple, orange and green ribbons.

Once your sign is complete.......gather up some goodies and assemble.

As soon as it gets dark out. Place your package at the "lucky" receipents door........ring the doorbell and run!!!!

The person who has been "booed" turns around the sign to announce that they have been hit by the halloween ghost (instructions are on the sign).......and then it is their turn to "boo" two more people.

Have fun!!! And thanks Cindy for the cute door hanger - much cuter than the xerox copy of a ghost that has been floating around my neighborhood for the past 6 years!!

Back....I am Back

I have so many excuses why I haven't blogged in months..........but I am back and to prove it I am posting just a quick little post!

Happy 16th Birthday to my son Michael.........!!! Hope you enjoyed the cake created by your little sisters.

Not sure what his plans were for that little innocent dwarf.........

About Me

I have been very happily married to my "kindergarten sweetheart" for 20 years............well we actually didn't start dating until we were in our 20's...... Together we have 6 wonderful children. They are 17, 16, 15, 14, 10 and 8. Although, we have moved around often, I am hopeful that we are now settled back home in Michigan.
