Room Remodel

So I found a new website with some amazing ideas. I have already put some into action and began a room remodel. Yep that's right! Here is the first of many to come. First I will begin with the before picture of the room.

What You’ll Need:
1. contact paper, (this is for lining drawers, you can find it at hardware or drug stores)
2. ruler
3. scissors or exacto

1. measure your window panes.
2. mark your dimensions on the contact paper and cut out your rectangles. i recommend using a ruler and an exacto blade, but if you draw a clean line and cut neatly with scissors that works as well.
3. carefully peel the paper back from the top of the film and place on the window pane. slowly pull the paper down and smooth down the contact paper with a piece of paper.

Here is the close up of the windows I worked on.

Below is the contact paper I used. I found it at Target.
Now for the final window look.
You can find the orginal project at
I am looking forward to the final look with the room put back together. I know it will look great and will be a great place to hang out this summer.

Another project is this 3D Snowflake/Flower.

Keep on Keeping on

So my attempt at losing weight has come up short to say the least. The first week I ended up gaining two pounds. I would have to say most of it has been because of my attitude and my lost of motivation. I thought adding to the value of money for China would increase my drive but it has not. So this week I am starting on a positive note. I am going to take the week by storm. With my half-marathon less then a month away I must force myself to get out and run. So far this week I have done well with; Sunday: 3 miles, Monday: 4 miles, Tuesday: 4 miles. The week has only began so I hope to do more the rest of the week. Hopefully this will help jump start my motivation!!

All I can do is just keep on keeping on!
