Plainville Hot Air Balloon Festival

Matt and I recently traveled to my hometown in CT to celebrate our engagement with my side of the family. While there, I got to see the many family members that I rarely have the opportunity to visit with and my aunt, grandmother and cousins helped put together a great little party for us. It was wonderful and the whole trip - however short - made coming back to South Carolina just that much harder than usual.

The FROG Gets a Makeover

About a month ago, when I left my job to pursue a new career, I had a bit of time on my hands. I gave myself a week of "free time" between jobs so that I could do a few things around the house because it's going to take me from now until our wedding day to stock up on vacation time for my wanna-be honeymoon.

But if y'all know me, and I think you do, you know that I wasn't exactly kicking back eating bonbons. My free time very specifically included a FROG makeover and some DIY art for the house.

DIY Wall Art - Copy Cat Edition!

I have been talking about hanging pictures up around the house for months and while I was on break between jobs a few weeks ago I finally got the chance. Michael's was having a killer stock up sale which included my purchasing six 10" x 10" frames on clearance for $6 each (score!) and I had been scouring Pinterest looking for some artsy (frugal) inspiration to recreate for our house.

Matt has been giving me a hard time for the last six months because my stash of picture frames and canvases has grown exponentially and yet none of them have made it to a vertical surface. After spending so many hours painting after we moved in, it breaks my heart a little to litter the walls with holes and pencil marks. But something's got to give and since everything in this house seems to be brown (I have a problem with neutrals) I had to finally commit and get to work to bring some color to our lives.
