This is my scariest post yet! 
On December 25, 2010 
this picture statement became true, about me! 
This and the new year approaching 
are giving me so many idea's on goals 
for the upcoming year! 
Stay tuned for my list! 

Count me in on Project ReStyle!

I love being part of other peps great ideas... 
and A Beautiful Mess always has the best things to be part of! 

Project ReStyle Guidelines

1. You must use unwanted, damaged or unusable vintage or used items to ReStyle. One of the big purposes of the group is that it encourages green living and is budget friendly. You can use items from your own closet/attic that you no longer love, thrifted finds or hand-me-downs. 
2. Take a Before & After photo of your ReStyled project. It's that simple!
3. Share your creative work on your blogs and in our Flickr Group. If you don't have a Flickr account, it's free to join. We'll be choosing favorites each week to share on our blogs, so you'll want to be sure to join the fun. 
4. You can create fashion, home decor or gift items. There are no limits on what types of items you can ReStyle! Be creative and make items you know you can really use! 

I'm off work until Jan. 3rd, so hopefully I can get a thing or two done for this before then! :-)

IHF -Pets!

I have been waiting so long for I Heart Faces to do another pet themed photo contest. 
As anyone who knows me knows, I wanted a puppy of my own for a long time... and just last December I finally got my wish! 
My husband and I took a trip to the Delaware County Humane Society, to just "look.." 
Well, I knew better! 
I knew if I found the cutest puppy ever, it would be coming home with me! 
We took a stroll around all of the kennels, dogs shouting "pick me, pick me!"
Most of them were fairly full grown. 
I really wanted a younger dog that I could bring up all my own... 
so we kept on looking... 
Down the 2nd row we slowly checked... "oh, puppies!" 
One was already being looked at by an elderly woman who came in before us. 
Then another was just chilling on his little cot, watching people walk by. 
My husband says "look at him!"
I say, "Let's take one more trip around..."
Only to come back to the quiet one chilling on his cot... 
Better known now as STEVIE! 
He's a great dog, and an awesome cuddle buddy!

Look at his amazing cute face! 
He wants to give you a nice big doggy kiss really bad!

I Heart Faces - Self Portrait

I'm so bad at making decisions on what pictures to use... so here goes!
I thought the frame made it even more of a self portrait! 

Let me know what you think! 
Then head over to I Heart Faces to see more self portraits!
