Heavenly Blues and What I've been up to lately...

Blue has a way of freshening up a room.

In this picture, they used a simple curtain and a few accessories for a pop of color.
Furniture painted blue adds a pretty, and easy to change accent.

Bright and cheery kitchen

I know it's been a while since my last post so here's a little update from me:

I've been accepted to the Master of Counseling program at Idaho State!
My program will emphasize Mental Health (I'm so excited).
I was so nervous during my interview, I never thought they'd let me in :)

I'm participating in "The Speckled Egg" Petite Inspiration Box Swap with a bird theme. It has been so FUN and I can't wait to show you some pictures of what I did, but don't want to ruin the surprise, so in a few days I'll post pictures so I can share what I have created (and what I get from the other girls- feels like Christmas). Thanks again to Heather for hosting this fun swap.
If you've never tried a swap, GO FOR IT! It is really fun and a great way to meet fun people!
Hmm, I'm thinking, maybe Abigail's could host a swap :)

Some other great news is that I applied to be a vendor at a great show. I was accepted and I've been super-busy sewing slip-dresses for the Oh Sweet Sadie Art and Gift Show. I've been mixing colors and sometimes it feels like alchemy (does anyone else feel so inspired when they create? like you're just in some kind of good groove or something? haha that sounds silly now that I've typed it). I'll take some pictures of my latest slip dresses tomorrow to share with you all. I'm so honored to be a part of this amazing show.

I've missed blogging during my busy-ness. I forgot how nice it is to connect with all my blog friends.
Please leave a comment if you visit. I've missed you :)

I can't wait to catch up with my blog reading and what my blog friends have been up to.


  1. Hey Melissa...Congrats on your acceptance into the counseling program and also in getting accepted to be a vendor in the upcoming show. I would love to go, it sounds so much fun. We just might have to plan a girls trip to Utah for that weekend.

    A girl at work today was talking about this cute little shop down on 4th street called Abigail's...she said it was so fun and so cute. (she stopped by today) I still have not made a stop by to see you and am anxious to come see everything you have.

    Good Luck on getting everything up and ready for your show.

  2. oh melissa..your touches of blue in your home are quite lovely! congratulations agian for being accepted to grad school. i wish you all the best! And..i can't WAIT to get my petite inspiration box from you and for you to get mine!
    warmest regards,

  3. Oh dang it, I didn't mean to be misleading, these aren't from my home but they were found at HGTV. All credit goes to them :)

  4. Can I just say, I love, love your store and all the ideas.... you have actually inspired my husband to get into it too. Congrats on your acceptance into the counseling program! Will back to your store soon!


Thank you for stopping by to see me and what I've been up to. I love, love, love to hear what you have to say.
