Korean Apartment Master Bathroom

I took pictures of our master bathroom today, showing what we have done to make it “our’s” and not just military housing for the next 3 years. The before pictures aren’t that great, but I did at least remember to take them when we moved in!  I don’t know what I was thinking with this…

Oopa Gangnum Style! {Halloween 2012}

In honor of being in Korea, Isaac decided that he wanted to be Psy, of Oopa Gangnum Style fame for Halloween. Are you not familiar with Gangnum Style? Then you HAVE to watch the video, I die every-time I watch it, the words are really funny in English too, they talk about how it is better…

Marie Antoinette {Halloween 2012}

I promised Emmie a Marie Antoinette costume last Fall, but got too busy with school to actually make it, so this year she had me fulfill my promise, (this is her snooty queen face) Apparently Emmie was destined to be a snooty queen!  I made the back a sack back gown, no one who knows…

A Birthday Hanbok

I have been very busy around here, with tons of sewing going on, but it has all been little things that aren’t much to speak of individually, but time consuming when all put together. I made Emmie’s bed canopy for her 4 poster bed, and then I finally made the bedding for her American Girl…

Out and About in Korea!

Yesterday Paul and I went out for a drive while the kids were in school, and it was so lovely we took them back today. I wish I could tell you the name of the place we found, but I am afraid I couldn’t read the signs! This is a statue from a Buddhist Temple…

Not The Post That Was Supposed To Be Here…..

I’ve been so excited all this week about the post I was going I write today, it was going to have cute pictures of my moving truck arriving, crates being opened, and my hose taking shape while Paul and I directed a symphony of movers……. Um the only trouble is, that’s not quite how things…

Shower Curtain Poll

don’t worry, I spelled the title correctly! I meant poll, not pole, 🙂 as this is all about asking for help in deciding what I want to make for my shower curtain, not how to put it up! I just bought this fabric for my shower curtain, And It just arrived and is beautiful! (and…

Paneled Master Bedroom Wall

Today while shut in our apartment due to Osan Airbase being on lock-down in preparation for Typhoon Bolavin, Paul and I painted the “paneling” onto our back accent wall.I love the effect, and even in person it’s hard to believe it’s just paint! We took photo’s of the process along the way, so I will…

Potential {photo of the day}

We went shopping for school supplies today, and every year I am struck with a distinct sense of potential as I look into the cart and see all of those crisp and fresh supplies waiting to be used to help expand the minds of my not so little (anymore) ones.  I’m not looking forward to…
