Back in blogland with a list of projects!

These past few weeks have FLOWN by and I am amazed at how quickly the days go by.  I've been keeping up with my Project Life photos and more on those in another post.  I have not kept up with Project Life Tuesday, but I'm hoping to get back on the ball with the couple of weeks I've missed in posting.

I've got a few ideas brewing for projects around our house.  My Lenten focus is to really make our house a home.  We bought our house thinking we'd be spending about 5 years here....it looks like it's going to be longer than that given our stellar housing market in Phoenix.  That mindset though has led both of us to not really settle into our house...we still have countless things not hung up, our bathrooms and bedrooms remain unpainted and I'd really like to get rid of our linoleum floors.

I'm thinking about making a coffee filter wreath....I saw this AMAZING dress at Anthropologie in Boston...totally constructed from coffee filters.




Ithought it would be an easy project and can hopefully fill part of our giant living room wall.  A quick search on The Nester's site led me to THIS:



I'm not quite sure how it will fit into our decor yet, but a few coffee filters and styrofoam wreath are worth the few $$ to find out.

I'll post a photo when I'm done  :-)

Have a great week!
