Paper flowers & thrown out backs

Yesterday was a nice relaxing Sunday. Free from work and too much thinking. The past few days have been crazy busy. I've been working 13 hour days up in Logan...away from Tom, which is highly disappointing. I have been getting a lot done though and learning a lot. Yesterday morning Tom was trying to get a banana off the ground and threw his back out. I feel so bad for him when it happens. He has had back problems for a long time and it goes out after it has been, unpacking, grouting, working at a computer all day, etc...basically all the things we have been doing the last few weeks. Kind of a bummer, but he will be just fine. Yesterday I got to paint some square canvases to decorate our bedroom. Our colors in there are orange and gray. It might sound weird, but I think it is really cool. We found a really cute bedspread at IKEA (my favorite store) that is white and gray with orange trim. We also got this sweet orange chair from our nice friends the Hunts. I would have never thought that I would be using orange as a decorating color, but I'm really digging it. My friend Kristee and Erin would both approve. I also made these really cute paper flowers. They are so fun I think. I am going to learn how to make a rose and tulip and daffodil and iris too. I want to start making them to sell out of cool paper. I think there might be a market for them. If not, I will just use them at my own house. :)

Yeah! I love orange. Of course. Our bedroom is orange/green/brown. My bathroom is a pale orangish yellow, and of course the beautiful orange accent wall in my kitchen. With orange pillows and towels throughout. Orange is a great decorating color. I approve. =]

You are so creative Meg! Can't wait to see your place and the new bedroom decor.
