Bling-Bling Jewelry Box Makeover

Josh bought me a new,really big jewelry box for our Anniversary. My old one was nice but I wasn't sure what to do with it, I didn't need two! I decided to make it over for Josh's 5 year old cousin Elizabeth. She is into pink and bedazzles like me! This was a lot of fun. The paint job took me forever to tape off and get the paint to cooperate with me!

I spray painted all of the handles white.

taped off all of the red lining parts.

Glitter gloss rings

Catching Up with Pictures: Christmas Decor and Josh Graduates

We have had so much going on that I haven't had the time to sit down and blog about it. Well here it all is!!

Josh graduated!!
Josh and I meet in class at Virginia Tech. It was fun to have him at graduation with me (I work graduation because I work for the school). I am really proud of him and ready to move on to our new life together but I don't want him to go! 
Our friend Justin Tanner. He got his PhD in Biological Sciences.

I couldn't get him to pose on stage!!

Walking into Cassell. He was right on the end in the front row.

That's him!!

In line to walk out. Talking to his Northern Virginia Army friend

Christmas Stuff!! I didn't get too Christmas-y this year. I had to sort through the Christmas stuff to get it ready to move. I set up my Peanuts Christmas stuff and that was it!

Me in the mirror looking hot in my sweats!

A little Hokie Snowman! 
I didn't craft too much! I just didn't have time but I made cute & simple ornaments using my Cricut.

I cut out letters with my cricut, carefully modge-podged the letters on, stuffed the ornaments with crinkle paper and then put on a loop of ribbon. I think that they turned out pretty cute.

Moving Day

This is a lame no picture post. I sat down to blog while the movers are here, I got my camera out of my purse to get some pictures to post and then the movers asked me question and I put the camera down somewhere. I have piles of junk everywhere for the movers and then piles of stuff that I don't want moved with this move. So here's a quick run down of what's up with us. I will have more detailed posts soon!

  • Got engaged to Josh! Have that post written up but I need my camera so I can post pictures of the rock.
  • We are no longer buying the house in Deridder. The bank apprasial came back more than $10K under the contract price. The buyers wouldn't move on the price and we aren't interested in paying cash for something that's not even worth that much! We do not know where we are going to live. We are leaving at the end of this week to get Josh to Fort Polk and will spend the week finding somewhere to live!
  • We had a fun Christmas in Virginia with Josh's family. I got to meet more of his family and hang out with the rest of them. I like his family.
  • Movers are here to pack up our stuff. Josh will come live with me until we leave to take him to Louisiana.
I am hanging out today with the movers and once I find the camera I will write up some more posts!

LAME POST UPDATED!! I left the camera in the kitchen and Windell, the mover brought it to me.
