Burlap Message Board and Frame

I have a good friend Megan who has a hair salon in her home. She is FANTASTIC at what she does and I love her to death. Megan is one of the most down-to-earth people I know.  I wanted to do something nice for her because she is always doing something for someone else. 
I bought this "plastic" frame at Goodwill for a $1.50 and sprayed it black.

I made a trip to the candy store Craft Warehouse and picked up a few bits of "bling".

 The Mason lids were used for my circle template and after cutting the circles out of burlap...(may I add took me FOREVER)....yeah...I didn't even end up using them.

This is way fuzzy....sorry

I love the scissors graphic I found at "The Graphics Fairy", I'm glad I found a way to use it.

 Sorry this is such a fuzzy picture...but you get the point.

Dirty Work...Someone's Gotta Do It!

We are so excited to start on our new home.  My totally rad father-in-law with help from my totally cool husband are doing the excavating.  
Okay is this the cutest thing ever?

So today was day 1

and the smiles were on


and then...... what do I see.....SNAKES!!!

I don't consider myself a "prissy girl" but when it comes to mice (and my new found fear of snakes)... I. AM. OUT!

Oh and yes my husband informed me later about the mouse he had seen.  
I know I know...this is just how it is.

We missed having Tayden at our exciting "ground breaking"  he would have been all over it. He is in Utah playing rugby, being spoiled by grandma, and not to mention.. hoping he'll see a certain girl.  

So our journey continues.
