This is a different kind of before and after post for me. I have always wanted to put a post like this out there but, for some reason I never had enough nerve. This is a before of a spring mantel I did this year....
...days if not moments after I styled the mantel this is what it became. A parking ground for a multitude of action figures.
I really think my 7 year old thinks he is adding to the decor...note the artfully placed fighter jet by the nest of eggs.
My living room is most painfully staged for some Christmas shots in 2010...
...when this is really what it looks like many days out of the week. Yikes...I really cringe showing that shot.
I have a teen who was always a wonderful doodler. I love the pictures I found in the fridge; of all places, this week.
Our o.j. looked a little disgruntled this morning. Kids...you gotta love them! My life has never been the same since they came along.
