I Had Some Extra Paint...

We have an eensy weensy little hall bath. I mean, it's small. And while it definitely serves its purpose, I can't say I've ever been proud to show people to this WC! :) So I decided to paint it. Well, let me clarify: I decided to do a decorative paint technique in there. I figured, it's small. It won't be that big of a deal! It won't take long!

Well, it didn't take too long (about 3 1/2 hours last Saturday morning). But it was a bit more "involved" than I'd planned.

I taped it all off first, of course. Then I searched the internet for a technique that would work for this little space and for what supplies I had on hand. I did not want to repaint the whole bathroom. I simply wanted to use the extra paint we had already to spruce things up in there!

So I went for the "ragging" technique. I already had the "base coat." All I had to do was scrunch up a rag, dip it in the paint and tap it on the wall, using different angles and such. Of course, my arm almost fell off, especially when I painted the ceiling using the same technique! AGH!

BUT...I think it turned out great!

And although you can't really appreciate it in these photos, here is a BEFORE...

and an AFTER...

and another shot of the sink area!

My Easter Bunnies

I got Jaiden and Iain "matching" chocolate bunny shirsts for Easter.... and, of course, I had to get some photos.

I must admit, this photo session went a TAD better than the Christmas attempt... but, with two kids, it sure takes a LOT of shots to get just a few pictures that work! :)

Here is my favorite of my two little bunnies together... (again, Iain with that pacifier.... oh, well!)

And here are some other shots!

A Little More Growing To Do

I put Iain in his bouncer yesterday.... he's still a bit too small, but he pushed those little legs down and got some motion going! I guess we'll try again in a few months! ;)
