First Blog Project!

Hello friends! 
So while doing my normal daily blogging, I found probably one of the coolest projects I have yet to find.  The original project is from one of my "Fave Links" at Life, Crafts, and Whatever.  Jen calls this project 'Paint Chip Wall Art', rightly so.  To put it simply, I will be recreating her original piece that is made out of paint chip samples, plywood, spray adhesive, modge podge, a little stain, and some gold paint. 
A picture of Jen's inspiration (Ballard Designs) and recreation, just beautiful!

So I have decided to make one for myself.  I am not totally sure what colors I am going to go with yet.  I will probably consult with Spence first and see what he thinks.  I showed this to my cousin Brie, who is also a DIY enthusiast, and she is going to make one too!  I will have to get a photo of her recreation as well.  I am planning on getting this finished by Monday (cross my fingers) but with all of the Superbowl hoopla going on we will see!  
Speaking of Superbowl, my fiance and his three other roommates are throwing two parties this weekend.  Them being avid Green Bay fans, it didn't really surprise me.  Myself being the awesome fiance i am, is making a bunch of goodies for the boys and the rest of the gang.  I am planning on Swedish meatballs (per request), stuffed mushrooms, crockpot weenies, and some cherry rum balls for dessert. 
I will be sure to keep you posted on my progress with my very own 'Paint Chip Wall Art' and I can't wait to get started!   GO PACKERS!
