DT Tuesday

Hey...Maria here today!
and...that's me...taking a photo of myself in my bathroom :)
Yep...my walls are bright green...not that bright...I messed with the photo setting but still pretty bright.
I have an obsession with things that are white and distressed and bright colors.
I'm sure none of you have noticed my online absence lately but boy have I.
My hubby and I have been redoing our kitchen for the last TWO MONTHS.
Here is a sorta of before...kind of mid progress shot.
And here is the AFTER pictures....SO HAPPY TO HAVE THIS DONE!!
My Mom and I tiled the backsplash...neither one of use had done it before but after a ten minute you tube video I was sure I could handle the project.  Turns out I was right...it was really easy :)
...and I LOVE that faucet!!
I had planned on leaving the walls yellow but they did nothing for the cabinets...so I went with a BOLD blue...loving this too!!
The guy at the hardware store was entering the paint color into their system for future reference and he asked me where I would be using this color...when I told him the kitchen he said,
"to each his own"...hehe.
This color was welcomed with open arms by my hubby and kids but I did get a few strange looks over Easter.  Not everyone was digging the color but I get an instant smile when I walk in so it's all good :)
The floor was laid by my husband without my help.  My back completely gave out the day we were going to start this...guess I needed a break.
As FUN as it was to design the kitchen and then watch it transform I've never been happier to have a project done.  I've missed my craft room and browsing through blogs...my google reader is over 1000 right now.
In all the chaos I did have a few chances to sneak away and create but only
clean and simple designs.
I made this cute little graduation card using the Unity KOTM
{Simply Magical}
Please tell me you get it...my husband didn't get it!!
Here I thought I was being all cute and clever...and he didn't get it!
I know when I graduated high school DONE was the best word ever.
Are you a FAN of Unity on Facebook??
You should be...I'll be posting a FUN...RANDOM question on the Unity page today...join in the fun and you could win your choice of an {Itty Bitty} stamp!!!!
Before I go...my Dad shared this quote with me this weekend.  He thought it would be great for a card...love that he was thinking of me.
If God brings you to it...
He'll bring you through it!
