Here is a breakdown of my headboard wall.
All framed photos were printed directly from the internet. I typed in vintage beach photos, selected my favorites and printed them 4" x 6" on regular white paper. I then trimmed them flush and pasted them to a 50 cent white poster board cut to size.
Having a small photo on a large matte gives a clean modern look.

Welcome to 2012!
I was inspired by Pinterest when stumbling upon this graphic poster about New Year's resolutions. Most of them are pretty standard but it was nice to see them designed so beautifully. Although, they don't all apply to me (I haven't had bangs in 15 years, I'd probably be anorexic if I lost 30 pounds and I do have a job), but I can definitely relate to several.
I believe everyone should write down their goals, so they can stare you back in the face and then you'll feel guiltier if you don't accomplish them. So make your list, stick it up on the fridge or mirror and have a fabulous year!

A few photos from a Christmas party I hosted, enjoy! Merry Christmas!
|Eat, drink & be Merry! Red Velvet Cake pops|
|Leftover handmade tissue poms from my sisters shower - just had to use them.|
|I designed a chevron food tag. That silver polka dot design you see is actually scrapbook paper - get creative! Silver chafing dish found at Goodwill, then throughly cleaned :)|
|Mini bar area. Silver tray found at Goodwill, also lined with the scrapbook paper.|
|I used leftover straws from my sisters shower and created a "HO, HO, HO" flag.|
|I designed a quick print out and placed it in a frame to add some whimsy to the bar area.|

Adding Christmas cheer to my entry console.
|I wanted it to be subtle and continue my eclectic theme.|
|This is what is looked like before.|
|Free online printable in red, glitter deer purchased at the dollar store (my roommates craft), and candlesticks moved from my bedroom (purchased at hobby lobby)|
|I crafted tree cones from poster board and then covered in fabric,lace and burlap and placed on candle sticks. Decorative gold ric rac was added to my existing fabric runner.|
The fabric trees are very simple to create. Follow Below
My one recommendation: use spray adhesive! I used my hot glue gun and it was not as effective.
