Stencil Fever

I went to Michael's the other day and stopped in the aisle full of stencils and for some reason I became obsessed, and I had to have them all. I literally had every stencil in my hand. But I had to control myself, and I only picked three. So know I have to see what I am going to do with all of these. I have some ideas, which I am really excited to see how they turn out!

I had to get the peacock feather because I have always loved how they look. Of course, I also had to get the pack with the fleur de lis (hello my Saints)! I am planning on making some paintings with these stencils. I want to make sets of three small paintings with the same stencil in different colors to stack on top of each other.

This stencil is huge and is supposed to go on a wall. I decided to brave this and put this stencil all over one of my walls in my bedroom. It is going to be an awesome accent wall ( if I don't screw it up). But I am excited to see how this turns out!
This is how the wall is supposed to turn out. Fingers crossed!
I'll keep y'all updated on how all these projects turn out :)

OHP for Fall and a BIG IDEA!

Fall weather is here! OK, well kind of.. the weather in Houston is getting there. Hey, it's in the 70's, that's good for us! But I cannot wait until the full on fall weather is here (even if it is only for a few weeks). So my pinning has been focused on what I can wear for fall.. layers, colors, and my favorite boots. Follow me on Pinterest HERE.

I wanted to run an idea past everyone. I am extending my Chloe and Isabel jewelry Fundraiser for the Veritas Charter School in Memphis, TN un til the end of September. And I wanted to do something special... Host an online "Trunk Show" for all you bloggers!!! Here is how it will work. For three days next week I will post about Chloe and Isabel jewelry. Then if you are interested in purchasing any piece from the online boutique you would contact me (email) with your order so it will go to the trunk show. Here is the BIGGEST PERK when you participate in this trunk show. I will enter everyone who purchases something into a raffle to WIN ALL the hostess perks (aka free jewelry of your choice).
And a special we are running for September the Hostess of a September Trunk Show will get to pick out one of these pave branch bracelets when sales go over $400.
Let me know what y'all think. Would people be interested in participating or not? You will not hurt my feelings. I just want to try a different way to get Chloe and Isabel jewelry out there and raise some money for charity :) Feedback is definitely welcome!

National Cheeseburger Day.. Yes Please!

Happy National Cheeseburger Day!

I'm reminded of the HIMYM episode where Marshall is in search of the best cheeseburger ever. Is there really a burger that can be called the best EVER? This cheeseburger recipe claims to be the best and even has a secret sauce (dun dun dun).  It looks and sounds amazing. I'm going to have to try this and see if Marshall would agree.
via Six Sisters Stuff

This brings up another important question. What do you put on your cheeseburger.. do you stay classic or get crazy with it?

My favorite toppings:
American cheese
onion rings

...And yes, I would put those all on the same burger. What are your favorite toppings?

OK, now I am hungry. Damn you National Cheeseburger Day!!

Start the Happy Dance!

It finally happened!!! I got a real, big girl JOB!!! I am beyond excited :) I'll be working for a marketing agency here in Texas as a social media manager. Hard work and persistence does pay off.

Oh, Chevron. OHP.

Lately I have been pinning everything with a chevron pattern. It doesn't matter if it's a dress, crafts, decor, art I'll pin it. Here are some of my favorites. I can't be the only one with a slight Chevron addiction, right?

Need this dress.

Perfect for spicing up the boring stuff!

Glitter, Chevron, and Pink.. You cannot go wrong.

I have always wanted arm chairs like this!

Cute way to redo a dresser.

I wish I had stairs to do this with!

Love it! Hello crafts.
