A hair braiding weekend

Najahbraids

 

So most of my weekend was spent braiding hair, and this isn't even a difficult style to do but I tend to take advantage of the fact that my child is in the same house as I am so I can work at the pace of my choosing.

 

I'm going to put together a tutorial for you guys and share the results of this look, hopefully before the week is out but still have to get the pics just right and everything put together. Let's just say you'll see a tut on this soon.

And so it begins-My 1st home decor project/post

NaturalsoonerAbout two weeks ago I decided to go out, grab some paint and paint my hallway. Thats the lovely shade you see in the pic above. I'll give a true tour of the area once other work is completed.

 

This one little job sparked a movement in me to get er done when it comes to other projects around the house. I'd wanted to do a blog that focused on diy, home decor etc. for some time now but taking the time to do the projects was one thing, then having the time to document it all is another. Decided to get over all of that and as I said before, get er done! Once I painted the hallway and thought about how pretty the color is, i made me think of my pic I'd purchased over a year ago from Andrea of fly girls and how it would be perfect for the space. Then the decision of the type of frame I'd like to use followed. The white trim motivated me to go with a white picture frame and viola. A beautifully painted hallway with a beautifully framed pic to give it life, a little more color and just the feel of me, this is me and what I like. Moving me towards the type of home I've desired to build for some time.

The pic then motivated me to move to my next project which I'll post in more detail about most likely next week.

I'm excited about my new blogging journey and building my home to be just the way I'd like it and I look forward to sharing my projects/processes with my readers.
