Birthdays and Fundraisers with a Dash of Orange

How's that for a blog title?

I apologize for my lack of consistency in the past few months. The school schedule this year is taking it's toll. My younger 2 boys have preschool 3 mornings each week until 11:30. My oldest gets on the bus at 12:20 for afternoon Kindergarten. So by the time we get home at 11:50 and make lunch, there is about 15 minutes to eat and walk down to the bus. Add in the school fundraisers that I've painted pieces for and my middle kiddo turning 5, and it's been hectic!

First, the birthday boy! Between school and family, he got to celebrate 3 times last week, so he was happy.

I went bold with this one, using Real Orange in gloss (by Rustoleum) Photobucket

So bright and fun, it leaves me wanting more! I'd love to see the room it's going to live in.


What a great little table and now it looks FAB in this years trend color (Tangerine Tango!)
