…blue egg brown nest tutorials on youtube

I am so new to You Tube so sorry for the delay! All I know about it are the funny cat videos I seen on Ellen. And, yes, they crack me up.

I decided to do a series of 3 tutorials because I have been asked by many of you to walk through the process. I hope the visual is helpful. Yes, there are kids and dogs and hurricanes happening in the background, but c’est la vie 🙂 FB tells me that I’ve reached just over 5,000 readers this week and I’m thinking it has something to with the tutorials. Thank you so much for watching!

…Favorite Things Friday – Miss Mustard Seed’s Book

I have been following Miss Mustard Seed for a while and she’s such an inspiration in her craft & her faith. As you know she recently came out with her Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line, which I am very excited about trying soon!

Just as exciting is her new book, Inspired You, that I just got in the mail last week. I pre-ordered it months ago and it showed up on my doorstep in the Amazon box.

I have to admit that I have not had a chance to sit down and read it, but I have flipped through the beautiful pages and looked at all the images. I think my favorite quote goes something like, when you see a gorgeous, glossy design book don’t get jealous get inspired. (I’m obviously paraphrasing)

Marian will be signing books November 2nd & 3rd at the Luckett’s Holiday Open House 10-5. See you there!

…blue egg brown nest video tutorial!

I was always hesitant to do this because, well, I haven’t had time and who really wants to see themselves on tape. But, I’ve had alot of requests and want to show you how I interpret using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

You may have noticed a new icon on my site called “Tours & Tutorials”. I decided to do some videos in this section based paint & home. So, there will be a series of posts on chalk paint and interiors.

This first video is the first step in chalk paint. I hope it’s helpful. More importantly, I hope to show that painting needs to be fun, interpretive and made you own. Don’t do everything I do. Find your own style and like Ginger my first boss told me, decide what you love and then have the confidence to say it’s the best.

Here goes nothin’. (please forgive the children screaming in the background and hiccup in the beginning. DH is new to splicing video!)
