First off, I can't tell you how excited I am to be doing a post about an actual project. It feel like years since I painted anything, touch up painting the walls doesn't count! (even if it does keep me very busy!)
I feel like the last person to us Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Finally, I've used it, and like everyone else I LOVE it! It was a little touch and go at first, and the wax is gaining my admiration, but in the end, I'm beyond pleased with the products.
I really like the hand painted look of the piece, which says a lot, I usually go for a flawless finish. This is the first piece in my house that I have actually hand painted with a brush. The rest have been sprayed.
Well, I'm gonna stop singing the praises of ASCP, and show you my finished piece. I hope you love it as much as I do!
They sell a mason jar packed with little baby items. The jars ingredients (how cute is that, ingredients!) are a bib, hat, onesie and booties. A little bit of everything an expectant mother might need.
The best part, for every jar sold a jar is DONATED! Yep, they are some pretty caring folks over at Baby Pickel. Their stuff is even made in America! There is more info on their website, plus you can check out my Affiliates page too.
Okay, so of course there is a GIVE AWAY to go along with the introduction.
One lucky Friend will win a Baby Pickel jar! You get to pick if you want one for a Boy or Girl. I will announce the winner on Sept. 2nd 2011, two weeks from today!
The GIVE AWAY is open to all US Residents 18 years or older.

Sommer from Designer Garden, you know my Bestie, and I had a garage sale. Not your average garage sale, but an "Upcycled Sale". We did a pretty good job too, here are some pics. You can check out her blog for some befores on things too.
I’m Kristy from Hyphen Interiors. I’m excited to be guest posting on Type A Decorating. I met Tammy through one of her link parties a few months back. She has always been super nice and open. We even did a series on blogging tips together, at the same time on each of our blogs. It was called “Before the Paparazzi” if you want to check it out!
Tammy said to tell you guys a little about myself and my blog!
The WONDERFUL folks over at UPrinting.com are offering one of my Friends a FREE 16x20 Rolled Canvas. How Amazing! I can't wait to place an order with them, they really have unbelievable prices on rolled and stretched canvas.

with 2-inch border or No border,
1 Business Day Turnaround, *Free shipping

I almost didn't get this post done. I've been crazy busy with school starting for both kids. Remember, with the girl in school, now I get two whole days to myself!
That being said, you would think I would have more time for blogging, nope. Sommer at Designer Garden and I are having an "Upcycled" Garage sale this weekend, so we've been busy busy. It doesn't help that we keep going to the same stores with no success! lol
Sneak Peak of some of the things Sommer and I are preparing for the sale!
G'day to all my fellow Type A followers! My name is Megan from over at Meg and Mum's and I hail from Adelaide, South Australia. I was so chuffed when Tammy asked me to do a guest post for her blog. It's my first ever guest post and I'm a little nervous.
I love Craigslist, but I hate the waiting! I want you to get back to me immediately and accept my offer! Am I asking too much? It just bothers me, that it will take some folks days to respond. Another pet peeve of mine, if the item is sold, take it off Craigslist!
Just wanted to share some pieces I'm waiting, not so patiently to hear back on.
This first bed would be great for the next house for my daughter. They are asking $135, but it's been on the market a while so I offered $90. I just bought my daughter an entire bedroom set, but the bed is a little boyish, and I thought I would use in in my sons room.
It's more like a jig really. I wish I could video myself doing it.
My youngest started school this week. I can't believe she is in Pre K, where does the time go? I'm really excited, insert jig here, I hope to get some projects done and relax. Another great thing will be being able to get my errands ran without children! No more screaming fits and begging for stuff, and stopping to pee in every public bathroom. Okay that last one may still happen.
Prepare for photo overload.
Here's Lauren Avery about a week after she was born.
I'm so excited to be here. This is my first guest blog and I'm so excited (and a little nervous).
First, I'll introduce myself. I work full time as a health educator and spend lots of time crafting. I graduated from Baylor University - Sic 'em Bears! I have a handsome husband of 2 years and two crazy dogs.
Hi, I'm Tammy, first time blogger, long time blog stalker. I have an addiction to caffeine, garage sales, Goodwill and Craigslist. I'm a SAHM to the best kids. Connor(Con) and Lauren(Lo) are my world. They keep me busy and on my toes. My hubby works outside of the country, so I wear all the hats, even the not so pretty ones. I've learned there isn't anything I can't do, but plenty I don't want to! This is my way of sharing my life with you, please join me in the craziness! I'll be waiting. :)
