P is for Project

Hello, my name is Aja and I have a little... problem.

With projects.

This comes as no big surprise to me and virtually none to my husband by now, either, but I like to.. as they say.. have more than one iron in the fire when it comes to any kind of project. I just have so many ideas in my head! I'll start 2 at a time or want to rush ahead and begin something new when the first is only half way done.

Sigh... I'm working on it.

Sort of.

So I'm sure you were all expecting Part 4 in the wildly exciting internet sensation that is my Guest Bathroom Facelift. Sorry folks.

Frankly the idea of steaming my DIY shower curtain for pictures just isn't lighting my fire at the moment, so you'll have to wait a bit. But I promise I will deliver!!

So anyway, with our recent Winter Weather situation, I was able to work from home on Thursday and Friday (cue the Hallelujah choir) and had time to cross off and add to my little project to-do list.

First up: my knock-off Pottery Barn pillows. Yes, I know, these debuted quite a while ago, but well... I've had this linen fabric and wooden buttons for about 3 or 4 months with the intention of making them!

You see! Too.Many.Projects.

What do you think?? I won't go into details with how I made them.. email me if you want a full run-down.

What was that?

In the background of my pic?...


You see what??..

Oh, yes. I see what you're pointing out there. PAINT.

Yup. Moving right along. I started painting our family room (or living room?? I haven't decided it's proper name. Add to list) last night. It was time. It feels right. I like the current color (that we painted a mere year ago), but our couch and chair (not pictured) are too close to the same color and it all blends together into blah blah land. (Sorry for all the parenthesis)

So this is where you'll find me this weekend. Semi-snowed in and getting high on paint fumes. How's your weekend shaping up? Are you snowed in, too?


  1. I am so jealous of you being productive. Does surfing the internet, eating bonbons and reading books count for anything? Love the new color, btw.

  2. I have the same green/blue pillow as you behind the knock off! :)I think it is at least.. TJ maxx?

    :) Great job!

  3. Rachelle,

    Actually I found those at Target for $4 each on clearance! But I could probably point out at least 20 other items in the room that are from TJ Maxx- love that place!


  4. We have been snowed in since Saturday and I have gotten a lot of cleaning done and started painting my bedroom today. I would love for you to share how you made the pillows, I am a beginner sewer, but my mom sews really well. Love your blog by the way.

  5. Thanks queenbee! I'm contemplating a few more pillows in this room, so I'll take pictures next time!



I ♥ your comments! Strange or lovely or somewhere in between, lay 'em on me!
