A little catch up :)

I have had a few things I have been wanting to blog so I am going to try to play some catch up today!
Things to blog:
Oliver's curtains

I only have photos for three of those right now so I will do those first :)
We are done working on the kitchen for now. We are still going to add a back-splash and new flooring. I also need to decide what I want to hang on the orange wall in there but for now, we are done working on it so here is a before and after picture!
When we first moved in it looked like this...
Currently this is how it is looking :)

Yesterday I whipped up some curtains for Olivers room so the neighbors wouldn't have to watch me change his diaper ten times a day. They are simple and nothing special but they match how we want to paint in there and the best thing about them is that they were free! Thanks to some material my momma was whiling to let go of and 20 minutes at the sewing machine , whalah...
Last topic for the moment is my painting! We had a crafting day at my moms on Wednesday and I wanted to make a large painting for the dining room wall. I had really never tried painting before so I was worried I was going to waste the 24 dollar canvas I had bought. It didn't turn out exactly how I had imagined but I am happy with it and David seems to like it so I can all it a success ;)
We have been working away little by little, trying to get this place together. It is really a lot of fun and I enjoy having David and the kids to help me along the way.
