DIY pallet wall.

So I am helping to design my boss's new restaurant Meat & Three. It's a work in progress, but it's coming along. Today we decided we were going with the idea of a pallet wall. With all different lyrics from various well known bands. So we started by finding the pallets (behind Walmart) and then I bought some Early American Stain Finish and painted the pallets to make them darker and more expensive looking. Then we used a matte paint to sponge on the lyrics. It is super easy, but very time consuming. Here are the photos of the ones I did today! Can't wait til they are done! Too bad I won't be there to finish the project! College is better anyways :)

P.S. give it a go! And also it would be cute as a bed headboard, or even a bookcase, shelf, desk, anything really! Experiment, and tell me what you did!!!

Everything seems to be in a rush right now. I am either packing (getting ready to head to BYU-I eep! ) or working (only two days left!) or babysitting. It's crazy how time is not on my side. It was fun having a semi-break while swimming with Eli today! I guess that is good enough for me. Sorry I have been flakey on the posts and such, I just can't seem to find time to pull out my camera! Here is my shot of the one relaxing moment today... Ahhh. Relief. Now back to stressing over fitting ally my college "necessities" into a VW Bug.... Oh goodness.

Painting pallets and designing all day tomorrow for my boss's new restaurant. Should be fun, yet completely chaotic. Story of my life .
Keep Smiling!

i love love love sundays in the litchfield home. not only beacause of the German pancakes and big dinner meals, but also the movie nights and moments that i cherish the most. watching mom cook in her apron, watching dad at the grill, there is something of a sense of belonging in a sunday at home. i love them... period. that is it. heres a glimpse of my sun(daze.)what do you do on sundays?


P.S. isn't the fourth photo just lovely? it warms my heart... i love it. a lot.

diy friday.

so i have a super wonderful diy for all you faithful followers! it is the bleaching tee-shirt DIY. it is super easy way to spice up your wardrobe, turning plain tees into graphic styles. here are the two that i created. 

so i made the first one using a navy colored plain swoop-neck tee. i used a thicker ((cheap)) paint brush and applied the bleach plentiful as circle polka dots on the shirt. i also kind of flicked the brush to splatter the dots a bit. I AM IN LOVE with these shirts! 

the second was just an experiment test run, but it turned out lovely. i just free handed it. for the record, the longer the bleach sits wet, the more white the bleached area will be. when bleaching a black shirt, remember to go over the writing at least two times in order for it to actually turn out white. 

do you have any cute ideas for bleached tees?? if so, do share :)

you're like a party.

today it was p o u r i n g. all day long! i loved it. today was my friend celina's last day before she heads to Ithaca. She is pretty wonderful, so we had a wonderful day in her honor. We made pillows. Pillows make every sad situation happier. Here was the outcome of my two mustard colored pillows. I love how they turned out. And of course Regina Spektor's "Party" lyrics make it perfection. Other wonderful things today were my newly made knuckle ring... and just all the smiles. let it rain!

fat tires.

Today we road beach cruisers all through Versailles ( pronounced Ver-sigh ) . What a beautiful experience. Of course once I get home I will have my favorite pictures of our trip all prettily posted: but for the meantime... Hereof our beautiful journey.
Just remember, don't be afraid to take an obnoxious jumping picture in the middle of Marie Antionette's palace garden. (life is way to short for slow motion, right?)
--tomorrow I leave France, I'm gonna miss the atmosphere and all very much! Such an amazing country! I've missed my cat though, so snuggle time my baby girl is greatly needed.

Outfit info-
Shirt: Urban Outfitters (Black Friday Sale!)
Shorts: Pac Sun
Glasses: Raybans

Today we took the train to Normandy. Talk about a polar opposite of Paris.complete countryside, so beautiful. We visited all the beaches of the war at Normandy, and had a good time looking at the old European buildings and the GREEN GREEN plants/vines and lovely flowers. Enjoy.

Today we wandered the streets of Paris. Going down St. Germain's street. The street art is so crafty and artistic. Such a fun sight to see. We went to the bridge on this side of town (merely cause the other is so packed). The idea behind the bridge is to write you and your lovers name on a padlock. Then you attach it to the bridge and throw the key in the river. Such a beautiful idea. My two favorite love birds made use of their time and bought a pad lock also. So precious. Tate and Ty decided to mark their love on the bridge too (such weirdos)
...banana byte la crepes, unique street grafitti, Paris kisses... Does it get any better? No, no way Jose!

rooftop love.

so I have finally had a minute to spare to jot a few thoughts I'm having while in Paris. I'm in love with the balconies on all the loft apartments... So beautiful. I love the artistic nature that this city encompasses, so inspiring. I love pastry eating while riding the metro. I love people watching. Most of all, I love being here with the four knuckleheads I call my family. Here's a glimpse...
