My honeytone peanut butter jelly time toast sketch post

Sadly, I haven't been up to anything TOO exciting this week. The remodel still consumes us on a daily basis. We are making some major progress this week. My FIL Mike and I installed new carpet in the master bedroom today. Monday night I painted the room" Honeytone", which is made by Glidden. Its a light warm shade of yellow. Its a small room, but I love the way it looks with the white molding and chair rail. I'm going for a bright, happy, creative style room. I hope waking up to color will freshen my day and make me a happier person and I'll feel inspired to scrap even more . Ok so this is the comforter I chose. Its called fresh nectarine. Its one of those down alternative ones, so I'm hoping its snuggley soft. Its so pretty, that I cant wait to take it out of its bag.

I'm really stuck on Orange lately. I use to hate that color. I'm going to add some bright throw pillows with blues, teals, greens, reds and pinks to the bed, and maybe even a body pillow in place of Euro shams. I know it sounds kinda teen-ish but I don't care.

After the carpet was finished and the primer was dry, it was off to pick a color for the front room, Pretty much the entire main living area, and I've been thinking about this for weeks now. So we walk in, Blake walks up to the little paint card selector and pulls out a color. And surprisingly only one, then he and Dad disappears to the electronics. After looking at every shade of yellow, green, tan and gold there and Twenty minutes later, I decided my 22 month old must know best. Yep! you guessed it. In the end, Blake choose the main paint color. Its called Queens Gold by Dutch Boy and I think he made a great choice. I painted a huge wall tonight and I must say I'm liking it. Why do we tend to make things difficult when we grow up?

My sister Connie, is taking Blake on a special Valentines Day date. I'll tell you more about that another time. While they are gone, Josh and I hope to get everything unpacked and moved in. So cross you fingers and scissors and lets all hope we get moved in this weekend.

Have you seen all the beautiful red and pink Valentines flyers and sales ads this year? Usually I'm not a huge February 14th fan, bc its always been just another day for me. Actually I'm cynical or even jealous, bc its a man made holiday with the sole purpose of selling flowers, candy and cards, plus the fact that my dear husband, never acknowledges the day or any other holiday as far as that goes. Seriously (Josh) I don't expect anything this year, bc we are so broke. In all honesty, I hate the holidays bc it reminds me of what I don't have in life, and Im not talking material things. Back to the beginning , In honor of the day, I made a valentines sketch. I see it covered in rhinestones, hand stitches, hearts and pretty paper. I love the we are memory keepers "Heart Attack Collection". I especially love sweetheart and Flutter paper.

This will probably sound crazy, but this sketch was inspired by that crazy peanut butter jelly song. That song reminds me of toast, and well do you see the toast in this sketch. I don't know how it will transfer to paper lol, but this is what boredom will do to you.

I love this photo of Blake. I think it really shows that he is quickly approaching 2 years old and the baby stage will officially be a thing of his past.

This is Jayla and Blake. They really love each other. She loves to lay and nap with Blake, and they play so good together.

Off to bed. Mike and I are laying Blake's carpet in the morning, and his room will be ready to go. I cant wait for him to have his first real bedroom and it be a big boys room. So exciting!

Sounds like you got a lot of work done this week, I'm keeping my fingers crossed the rest will go according to schedule! I love that orange too, seems that the older I get, the more I like the things I used to call "kitch".

And you're so right, once they get to Blake's age, they tend to learn something new every day, they want to do everything themselves, and it's time to say goodbye to the baby years, he's a big boy now! A bit sad, but it's such a sweet age too, you'll love it!
