I’m a little sad to say that Confetti Darling is no more. The blog got a make over and it is so fetch! (I’m still trying to make fetch happen) We are on to bigger and better things like becoming a “.com.” It’s like the blog turned 18 and decided it wanted to legally change it’s name and look. Well the blog wants what it wants so there just wasn’t anything I could do. I just rolled with it and now I have this lovely new site with a new name! I’m so glad the blog grew out of that horribly awkward stage. Phew! Well….truth be told I went to buy the domain for Confetti Darling but someone already snatched it up. DAG NABBIT! So I had to go with another direction.

I’ll quickly share a few of the many reasons I started this blog. I really enjoy being crafty! I guess you could say I’m a hopeless cheapskate, I really enjoy long romantic walks down the isles of hobby lobby. I’ve got restoration hardware taste on a thrift store budget. I love to create. I kind of live for when people say “OMG Christine I am obsessed with that, where did you get it?” Then I’m all. “I made it! BOOM!” At my house there are always random theoretical explosions happening. Not in a war zone kind of way but more like a cheesy magician kind of way.

My hubby is truly great at every facet of life he’s easy on the eyes for starters, he’s a hard worker, he’s incredibly ambitious and self motivating, he’s a terrific father, and smartest smarty pants I know.  BUT he doesn’t particularly like house projects. That’s actually putting it too delicately. He HATES them! By nature he just isn’t a handy guy nor does he wish to be. I’m cool with that, I’ve decided I’m going to stop being a damsel in distress and stop waiting for hubby to fix, paint or build this or that. I’m gonna learn how to do it all myself. I’m going to  just go do the things I’m passionate about. Although I’m sure I’ll still bounce ideas off of him and ask him to help with things that I’m not tall enough to reach or I may have to ask him to open a jar or two. (Seriously why do they make those jars so damn hard to open?).

I love doing hair! I’m a hairstylist. I’d love to share the tips and tricks I have learned over the years. I am a clip in extension addict. They are the greatest thing to happen since sliced bread. I just love making people feel beautiful and good about themselves! My three year old has hair like Rapunzel. I’ll do hair posts about toddler hairstyles too! If I can get her to sit still for long enough that is!

I’m a stay at home mom of two little girls my life is full of pink clothes, pink toys, essentially  lots and lots of pink, never ending tubes of lipstick, bum wiping, and a non stop game of pick up/catch up. To borrow the words of my girl Mindy Kaling ” I’m constantly in a state of self improvement, but I don’t beat myself up about it.” I’m going to conquer my life with one DIY project, and one fairy princess tea party at a time! I love my little family we have a pretty good thing going ya know? It might all be silly but the silliness is kind of my jam!
