My craft for the week

It has been a beautiful week in D.C.!

Today’s post will be a bit short, as I’m going shopping for suits and whatnot for the new job. I thought I would share with you my craft project for the week. It’s a recipe book. I compiled all of the cookie recipes my mom has always made for Christmas.

Do you want one of these with your own recipes but don’t have time to make one? Fill out the contact form and let me know what you are looking for.

Have a great weekend!

Drum roll please…

Tada! My finished living room – post redecoration. As I am sure I have said before, I am completely in love with the new space. On Friday, I showed you the design board I pulled together while deciding how to redecorate my space. Now, you will finally get to see what my new space looks like!

What do you think?

In regards to budget, you can find the shopping list of everything in this space here. While this total seems high, most of these items were purchased before the redecoration. My redecoration purchases were most of the items under “Living Room Redecoration”; I was able to redecorate it for about $250. My most expensive purchase was the area rug and was well worth it. I got the rug for an amazing price; it is also very durable and really makes the space.

Now it is time for you to share your space redecorations! E-mail me photos of your space. They can be before and after or just the final space. If you are in the process of redecorating and want some tips, e-mail me those too!
