- I am in the middle of planning a dinner party with four of my very close girlfriends. The cooking part is easy. I want my menu to consist of lasagna, with my homemade, fresh noodles, Italian wedding soup, salad, bread, wine, and of course dessert. Dessert may be birthday cake because two of the girls are celebrating birthdays in February. This dinner menu is one I am quite comfortable with, so I can focus my attention of the pretty kind of details. My big plan is to make my table beautiful. In my mind, my color scheme is red and gold. It is, after all, the month of love. I have a gorgeous dining room table and I have gotten out of the habit of using that room for how it was originally intended, so this weekend I have made plans with my friend to go antique and thrift shopping to make the table B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Some items on my search list are tall glass candy jars with lids to use for my table setting and unique printed red and gold plates. I am hoping for some great finds.
- For my second project, my 10-year-old daughter, Doodle is going to be thirlled in helping me with. I have always loved beautiful door wreaths. My goal this year to to make one for every holiday season. First up is this "too cute" Valentine's day wreath. Its a crepe paper wreath that I found on Little Tipsy. She has included all of the step-by-step instructions. She even noted that the she made the accessories deattachable so the wreath can be used for other "red" holidays like the Patriotic Holidays and Christmas. Is that not genius!
- My third project is to finish the small antique buffet table that I began stripping back in late summer. Once the kids went back to school in September, my days went back to chaos. Since I am in Michigan the weather cooled, I admit the project has been stalled. The table is just sitting in the garage begging for some love. I have to take advantage of the warmer days ahead to complete this project. I could well use this storage is my dining room and it will be a beautiful addition to it!
So, there you have it, that is my top three creative project list. I have tons of other ideas and projects that I have placed on the back burner. I will continue to "pin" my my board to do at a later date. I swear, my new love for Pininterest has simply lit my creative spirit once again, even if I am overwhelmed with all the fantastic ideas!. This blog is my little way of sorting it all out and inspiring me to get it done.
