Top Secret

My parent's room has been in desperate need of a makeover/facelift/TLC/any kind of new decoration for a long time now. Mom is too worried about the rest of the house to bother with her own room, so I've taken it upon myself (and my handyman aka boyfriend) to help her out in the form of an upholstered headboard. The project is going very well so far, and I'll give a more detailed post later, but I'm currently sitting out by the lake as I watch someone in particular use a jigsaw to cut plywood into the desired shape.

Grand inspiration:
Grace from Design Sponge made this headboard about a year ago and it's been floating around the world wide web ever since. I've watched her video at least three times now.

Trick or (Frozen) Treats

Things have been getting pretty crafty around our household. Some say it's that time of year while others simply have taken on way too many projects than they can handle. Either way, we embrace each one with our creative minds and get right to work. With Halloween quickly approaching, these stationary cards were fun and easy to make. Oh, and the "I scream!" was penned by yours truly.

Skulls & Bones

After eight weeks of nonstop studying of Anatomy & Physiology, I am more than relieved to be finished with finals and beginning my two week break. Unfortunately I just can't get away from the skeletal system. I recently perused Z Gallerie's website where, low and behold, the home page had a framed picture of the human body. I instantly zoomed in on the skeleton and clicked to "Shop Look". If only I had this picture to study from when I was learning all the bones in the body.

Upon further browsing, I came across a more taxidermist piece. I can't say that the moose is an animal that I am very familiar with (nor is taxidermy), but this mounted head would be so much fun to have in any room of a house! The white makes this a simplistic piece that would not be too overpowering or intimidating.

In the past few weeks that I have been MIA, I have been studying about these things... lots of less-colorful books than these...
...when all I really want to be doing is... I'm sorry, but I didn't think you'd be interested in what my life is currently consumed with: Anatomy & Physiology and Biology.

peace, love, and scientific thoughts :)
