A Refashion {Blazer Jacket}

My new favorite color is navy right now. I can’t get enough. I love it in clothing and furniture design. I’m just waiting for that perfect piece of furniture to paint navy and call it my own.  So, while I wait for that perfect piece of furniture to find it’s way to me I’ll settle for this little blazer.

{check out the rock’n old school transition lenses pre-laser surgery.  Hot stuff right?! lol}

I picked it up at my local Goodwill. Check out this awesome buttons and shoulder pads

I used a blazer I already know fits me well and used it as a template for the new hem

I cropped the sleeves, took out the shoulder pads, and removed the buttons

I added a simple pewter button and my new blazer was ready to wear!

Still recovering & craft day

So my eyes are still recovering from PRK last week. The dr says it can take up to 3 months for my eye site to stabilize. I’m hoping for like 3 weeks! I went back to work yesterday and because I sit in front of a computer all day it took a toll on my vision yesterday. I’ll gave good days and bad days until everything stabilizes so my postings might be a little sporadic until then.

Sunday was the first craft day I held at my house. There were 7 of us gathered around my dining room table crafting wreaths and having girl talk. We had a fabulous time. Everyone made a different wreath and each were gorgeous! I was having too much fun crafting to remember to pick my camera up and attempt to take good pictures with my poor current vision. So I hope the girls will take a few pics of the wreaths they made so I can share them with you all.

I did manage a picture of mine but am unable to see lightroom well enough to edit then picture;)

See ya next week!

Today is the big day! I’m getting vision correction surgery.  I found out last week I’m not a candidate for regular lasik so I’m getting  PRK instead.  The results are supposed to be better than lasik (so I’m told) but the recovery time is longer. I’ve taken the week off from work and I’ll also “offline” from everything else for the week. 

I was hoping to get a post ready for you all this week but we had a full birthday weekend and I wasn’t able to sit down and put one together.

BUT it will be worth the wait.  I’ll be back next week with TWO big reveals next week!

Have a great Monday and a fabulous week!

Charleston, SC

The hubs and I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary 2 weeks ago by having a relaxing weekend in Charleston, SC.  One of my best friends lives there and scored us a great deal at the resort she works at.

Here is our trip in pictures

Random

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend. Friday I attended an auction and got a few random items, some will make their debut next week and some are being saved for later.

Saturday I spent lunch with family and got to do a little shopping with my little sis.

Sunday I had a maternity shoot, which I’m hoping I’ll get to share those pictures with you all; and I started working on a dresser for a client.

All in all, it was a fantastic weekend!

This week, we are in full Birthday mode for this handsome soon-to-be 3 year old.IMG_1811               IMG_3040

 

One of the things this little guy is getting for his birthday is a new Big Boy room

This is how his room started; it’s made a few changes since these pictures were taken but this is the nicest picture I could find. Do all 3 year old rooms look like a tornado whipped through? WOW!!!

Today I go in for my pre-op appointment for Lasik. I’m super stoked about getting this done, It’s been a few years in the making. I get the procedure done next Monday and will have limited computer time outside my regular job for a few days after but I’m hoping to get a post written before hand so I’ll have something to share while I take a few days off from the computer.

My husband and I had our 6 year wedding anniversary 2 weekends ago.  We took a long weekend to Charleston, SC to visit one of my best friends and had a blast.  I just finished editing the pictures and I’ll share a few of my favorites later in the week.
