help me.

We are in the early stages of remodeling a kitchen, meaning we are still in the planning stages. Ryan and my styles don't quite match up. I love Meg's kitchen (pictured above), Lindsey's kitchen and Nicole's kitchen (via Lindsey's blog), that I've posted about previously, to name a few.

I'm trying to figure out where I'm willing to compromise and where I'm not. I'd love to see your favorite kitchens. I will look and comment on every link left in the comments. I can't wait to see what you love!

valentine express.

Lily came home from school requesting
a "Valentine Box that doesn't look like anybody else's"
After scouring the internet for ideas
This is what we came up with.

Lily's Valentine Express
She was quite pleased.

We used a large kleenex box and a smaller square gift box
-white craft foam for head lights
-metallic black (1 - 12x12 piece) cardstock
-baby pink bassil cardstock (3 - 12x12 pieces)
-argyle scrapbook paper (1 - 12x12 piece)
-10 pink brads
-cardboard for wheels
-red craft foam for windshield wipers
-gray scrap paper for grill
-white cardstock
-pink alphabet stickers

Font used for Valentine "just another font"
Font used for express "scriptina"

If you made a Valentine box, I'd love to see it!

cool spaces for kids.

I bookmarked these images back before Christmas.
Inspiration for fun indoor days.
I thought I would attempt to make my own versions.

That didn't happen. Imagine that.

But I'd love to order some from cool spaces for kids now.
Especially today when there's no school.
Temperatures near -30 around here today.
