I did my very first DIY project and it’s for the soon-to-be nursery! Thanks to Pinterest I discovered painting over mirrors with chalkboard paint and since I have had this mirror for years and not ben using it what a perfect little project for Baby Z :-)
First I taped off the edges of the mirror so I wouldn’t get the black paint on the white molding.
I bought the chalkboard paint, foam roller and edging brush from Home Depot. Overall it was a pretty cheap project as well.
Two coats of paint and a few hours later we’ve got a chalkboard!Read More
I need to take one last review tomorrow night, I’ve been looking at it too long today, but it appears I should be able to send the photo book for my parents to the printers this week! So excited to get to give this to them in person. And, to be honest, really proud of myself for getting this books done. I really wasn’t sure I’d get them done before the next Christmas! Thank you iPhoto!Read More
I am so excited! For Christmas Mr. Z and I told our parents we would be giving them photo books of our wedding. It’s taken time but I finally finished one and it should be here on Monday–just in time to give to my in-laws at Easter :-) This book is yet another example of why I heart Apple. Literally. I used their iPhoto program through iLife ’11. I picked the photos, clicked the ‘creat album’ button and it imported all the photos into the book template I chose. From there I reorded the photos, deleted some, added quotes and other text and voila! We now have their book. I really hope the print job looks as good as it did on my computer.
Next step: make one for my parents :-)Read More
