Living room is complete!

A couple of weeks ago, I had some friends come over.  At that time I realized I had only completed 1 of the 4 valences needed to complete my living room windows.  It kinda looked….awkward!  So in a fit of rage and time constraints I got up super early to try and finish the valences…only time had gotten away from me and I ended up only completing 3 of the 4 valences.  Then a couple days later finished the 4th.  Upon arrival of my friends they didn’t even notice that one was missing…HA!!  So it really wouldn’t have mattered, but wanted to present a completed living room to show them.



Mmmm…the smell of coffee!!

I allow to treat myself once per week to Starbucks coffee, always on Saturday after one of my 9 hour shifts at my second job for a little pick-me-up for the afternoon.  As I was driving to the 3rd job with my delicious Peppermint Mocha, I looked at the brown cozy and thought “this could make a delightful pattern.” As my 45-minute drive progressed the wheels were also turning in my head as I realized I could create my own coffee cup cozy using this pattern and upon arrival of home in the evening, I did!
