Hello, hello!!  Ok…so as you all my know I am a design chick…graphics, parties and blogging all came from me needing an outlet to express my love of design and creativity…any kind of creativity…any sort of design.  With having two small kids graphics came naturally and seemed to be a great fit since I was somewhat homebound…and the parties???  I have always LOVED to plan a good party!!   This all has evolved into a look into my daily life…this is what I love and am so passionate about  but I have to admint my FIRST love is interior design and my DREAM would be to land a spot competing on HGTV’s Design Star.  A few years ago I submittted an audition tape to HGTV’s Design Star…I think it was season 2?  Well, not sure if my tape ever reached the hands of a casting director but I do know that I was not a contestant…LOL!!  Although, I was not a contestant on season 2, I am no stranger to HGTV…my start with Project Nursery came from submitting Brandt’s nursery on HGTV’s Rate my Space.  Some of my designs have even graced the front page of HGTV’s Rate my Space…most recently my holiday decor seen HERE.

A few of my gal pals from design school (my original fan club – Erlinda, Dawn & Heather) have wanted me to resubmit an audition tape.  Well, last year my “fan club” wanted me to give it another go but I was literally 9 months preggers and could not bear the thought of seeing myself on camera in that condition…yikes!  So that brings me to today…whew…season 6 is now accepting auditions!!!  The deadline to submit is January 15th…so that means 9 days to get my booty in gear and get some footage of this chick on film!!!  Wanna see some of my design work?  Click HERE and HERE…oh and HERE too!!!  So if you don’t see me for a few days…that is what I am up to (:  Wish me luck!!! xoxo~rebecca

Ok…It’s official!  It is December 1st and the “official” countdown to Christmas has begun!  In honor of this joyous occasion, I wanted to create a digital piece of holiday love for all of my fab friends and fans (;  So I was also poking around the blogosphere and saw a this ADORABLE glittery tree DIY over at eighteen 25 via my party friend Kim of The Celebration Shoppe.  I knew that this would put the final touches on my holiday decor, so I had to try it!!  Prior to attempting the fun project…adorning my mantle were two tinsel-y trees and some framed holiday prints.  These glittery trees are a MUCH better option!!  My trees are not quite complete yet (still need some more glitter) but in order to showcase the art I thought they would make a great prop against it.

Here are my “almost complete” trees (;

Here is what the art print looks like….and of course there was inspiration….

Ah…the inspiration!  I purchased these pillows from Target last year.

Here is another project I have been working on….some holiday signs.  I printed these out on matte photo paper.  I am going to mount the on foam board and hang them with ribbon to finish off my holiday look.  I promise to post the completed pics!!

Alrighty!!!  Here is the  link to download your FREE 8.5×11 or 11×14 holiday print AND the link to make your own glittery trees!!




***I recommend printing this on Matte Photo Paper***

If you opt for the 11×14 size…Costco can do oversized poster prints!!

Yes, back in the day I was a cheerleader…and right about now I would love to pull off a cheer and a tumbling pass to celebrate my excitement for this article featured on azcentral.com!!  I knew it would be on there soon,  I didn’t realize that the day was here until a friend was congratulating me on Facebook.  I had no idea how AMAZINGLY  Kara G. Morrison of the Arizona Republic would highlight the details about me and my house!!!  Having Kara come to my house for the interview was such a fun and unique experience…SHE was such a delight!  I am totally flattered and so exited to let you peek a little further into my life and share my design ideas with everyone!!

When it comes to throw pillows I think I have an illness…I love these things!!!  You can never have enough!!  Well maybe you can…possibly why I have such successful garage sales (:  I have a neutral sofa in my great room and changing out my pillows is a great way to add a dash of color, change up the mood, or satisfy my obsession with these puffy little treats!  In this case I do have a reason for needing…wanting some “additional” throw pillows.  I was looking at my home tour and after viewing…I decided to incorporate a melon-orangy-ish color into the plan.  Just for some fun, impact, and balance.

Anyways…My friend Jo has an Etsy shop Diodio Domestic Couture and here are the pillows I am purchasing…so cute!

Jo uses high end fabrics such as Osborne & Little….one of my favorites!

Here are a few more I am eyeing up too.  All are available on Etsy!

This one is by Little Bungalow Studio…compete with fab fresh fabric by Amy Butler…oooo…ahhhh!!

Lastly this one is by Meringue Designs…also Amy Butler fabric….LOVE!!
