This is Katie May
She’s pretty fabulous.
This is her room before we moved in.
I love how Katie has a big row of windows that light just pours through.The room also contained this prebuilt wood wall/board to display things on which was fun.
It’s a great sized room and perfect for my girl. Will wanted this room, but Katie trumped him by being older and also having the smallest bedroom at the last house.
The room came with custom Navy Blue blinds. So, I decided that we should work the color scheme around them seeing that they are here and in great shape.
We decided to go with a theme of Navy ,light aqua and yellow-green.
She chose Behr paint : Country Mist for the wall color
Here is the result!
We accessorized with a great comforter set and ombre curtains from target.
Thanks for checking out Katie's little piece of heaven.
Jack the cat sure loves it!
I have recently got quite a few inquiries about the calendar that is in my office space.
I thought I'd share my teeny ( okay... huge ) obsession with calendars.
Every December I pour over calendar sites, music sites, etsy, pinterest.. you name it.. I'm there. In search of my two calendars for the upcoming year.
One is placed in the laundry room message station for all of our appointments,parties, everything. THIS is the hub! I've grown to love my iphone calendar, but I always write everything down on the HUB calendar because I need to see it staring at me .
The other calendar is placed in my office for quick date reference. I usually never write on this calendar.
I'm sure you are asking " who cares, why can't you just pick up a cat calendar or just love the one your oil delivery people give you ? " . Well, I feel that if I have to look at something everyday for a full year, it best be cool right?
Plus, I keep all my calendars for nostalgia, so I'll have these babies forever.
Last year my HUB calendar was DMB . Because we all know I love me some Dave.
My studio calendar was by the artist Masha Ryskin. Her work is so very beautiful.
This year the hub calendar is the WTF calendar. I truly laughed so much when I saw this calendar. I had to get it. I loved the graphic design of it and I love the fact that on many days we all say to ourselves "WTF" in various crazy situations. Or if you are like me, you say the equivalent in portuguese. It's a running joke around here that I would constantly say a portuguese phrase that is not so nice, I thought I was saying something similar to "oy vey". No , I was just plainly swearing out loud and had no idea.
This year's studio calendar ( and the inquiry of many questions) is by a Boston artist
Talula Christian . Her work is gorgeous. What's great about this calendar is that it's not bound so that you can frame each page. Also, the art images are 5x7, so when the year is up you can individually frame the scenes. I think it would look so awesome to make a gallery wall with all the images. Which I am planning to do after 2014 is behind us.
For the record, I used the word " calandar " 15 times in this post. I'm pretty sure I spelled it wrong each time and had to go back and correct it.
It's Comma’s One Year Anniversary!
Wow, one full year “171 “ posts!
Starting a blog has always been on my “to do” list.
This past year of blogging has brought some trial and error, some challenges and definitely learning experiences.
I’ve met so many people and have had a blast making “Comma” my little dream come true.
I’m not gonna lie to you, there were times that I almost gave up on it.
I muttered to my self “ does anyone really care? Is this a waste of time?”.
The funny thing is, every time I felt like throwing in the towel, I would get a random email from someone telling me they love my blog.
The stats have grown every month and I am just so happy that you take a slice of your day to come and visit.
A big milestone that I’ve just recently made is that my readers are coming more from the web vs. facebook links. This is so huge to me, because this validates that a majority of you readers are coming to “comma “ on your own.
The next 365 days will bring more of what you readers want and less of what you don’t want. The spreadsheet of stats don’t lie, I know what you’re “meh” about.
I have some local adventures to go on, stores and shops in our area that I will showcase.
Continued features on my clients, home projects and glimpses into my world are all on deck.
I’m drafting a whole new year of goals for this little blog.
By the way..... you can now go straight to www.blissfulcomma.com !!! Just remember there is no "the" on the new address. You can always find the blog and continue reading it at this original typepad address as well
Thank you for all following along this on this fun ride for the past year.
Here’s to year TWO!
So this week was a little crazy! We are now back on schedule! Happy Weekend Everyone!! Enjoy your last day of February!
I completely damaged my mirror backing out of the garage. It must be so comical for my neighbors across the street. They witness my attempts at exiting the garage on a daily basis.
Yes ... another oil delivery... ugh $$$$
Here's last weekend recapped.
Friday, Cindy and Keshia came over for some rita's. pizza and the re-establishment of BFBC Book Club. March brings us ...
Which has to be more Interesting than " The Interestings". If I bought "The Interestings" in book form, I would throw it out the window due to it's boringness. But seeing that it's on my NOOK, I care too much for it to toss it across the yard.
Saturday I headed to the Newport Bridal Show to photograph some clients for a client
It was fun and full of brides and happiness and chaos. They did have a bar which was helpful!
Sin's table looked amazing and the cupcakes and cakes were equally fabulous.
Jason & Co's jewels were to die for. Absolutely stunning!
Kyle and I headed to lunch.. grabbed some Dark & Stormy's .. and toured the Elms
The weekend was filled with so much fun and relaxation. It was perfect!
We had friend sleepovers and a best friend photo shoot
We also started the daunting process of organizing the art studio/office part our basement.
Hoping you are enjoying these neverending winter weekends.. Soon there will be green grass and blooming flowers.
