boom renovation diaries: our new home...

Since we closed on our new home nearly two weeks ago much has transpired. Mainly painting, french door installation and tearing out carpet in preparation to install new. We were very blessed to have the help of two of my uncles and my parents last weekend and, my parents again this weekend.

Since my giant belly is preventing me from lending much of a hand, I'm trying to busy myself with making some decorating decisions that can be easily executed once we move in and that are budget friendly. Right at the top of our stairs is the main hall bath which will be the kid's bathroom. The floor tile is a cobalt blue with a Moroccan-esque feel. I wasn't so sure about it at first but, it's grown on me and I now really love the bold color and the unique shapes. Playing off of that detail and wanting to keep the room child friendly, I'm looking at a blue and orange color scheme with sea life details.

Blog Hop: Holiday Wishes with Citrus Twist Kits...

Today the Citrus Twist Kits Design Gals are having a Blog Hop to share some of our holiday wishes and to make one of YOUR wishes come true...the chance to win a full, fabulous Christmas Daily kit! 

My Christmas wish this year was one that, at times, seemed nearly impossible. Yet, good things truly do come to those who believe and this past Wednesday, my family and I had our big wish come true as we closed on our dream home! My husband snapped the photo of our new home, under a blanket of freshly fallen snow, and our shiny new keys. The selfie shot of the two of us was taken the day before during our pre-closing walk through...just a little bit happy! I am using a Sn@p album to document our December memories this year, along with the CTK Christmas Daily PL kit. 

Please follow along with the Blog Hop below and, when you're done commenting on EVERY blog, hop back to the main Citrus Twist Blog and leave a comment there for a chance to win a Christmas Daily Kit! Now that is an one awesome prize sure to make any scrapper's holiday extra merry!!

Project Life Week 41...

Happy Friday to all! I am currently in the midst of a mad dash to the Christmas finish line (with hardly any shopping completed!) and also a move to a new home (!!!. ...more on that tomorrow!).

Creating with my CTK Pocket Life Kit always gives me the few moments I need to take stock of what's really important and have a bit of down time. And December's kit? SO fun! My pages came together in record time. While the kit can certainly be used for holiday pages, I went back to document one of my favorite fall weeks and the colors were absolutely perfect!

(Left) features a new favorite family photo taken during our trip to the Walkway Over the Hudson, a belly shot that is a near replica of one taken four years ago, and two favorite shots of the kids in our home that week...

(Right) Scootering (is that a word?) at the park, the farmer's market, fall baking, cuddles and my very first flip card (the heart)...

You can see more details on these pages, the flip card and some coordinating sketches on the Citrus Twist Kits Blog today.

Please check back here tomorrow for a very, merry Blog Hop with the chance to win a prize you won't want to miss!
