The Gaga Law

The chemical code above refers to a Lady Gaga law.
......where do they get this stuff?

My two daughters and a few of their BFF's went to see Lady Gaga a few weeks ago at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. I actually wasn't that crazy about ms. Gaga at first, but she's grown own me and I actually have some of her biggest hits on my Ipod.
On the eve of the concert I took out my camera and started taking some pictures. I thought the pics came out great and of coarse, all the girls were dressed up for the occasion.
When I got them back I just had to make some frames. This day had to be remembered with something special. Some of the photographs came out so cute that I just couldn't resist creating something to put them in.
Walmart has some really cheap wood frames that are easy to paint and decorate. Just for the fun of it I painted them with acrylics and added some really "tacky" decorations to them. It is Lady Gaga, so we have to include the tacky accents and lots of beads. Very tacky,but perfect for the event. Date included on the bottom so everyone remembers the concert.
One at a time.......these are two of my daughter's lovely friends.

an the other.......

The frames are cute and were so much fun to put together but the girls are beautiful, don't you think? It's so easy to customize a frame to go with the occasion. Using paint techniques, decoupaging and even antiquing can give you a real custom look.


So I got up this morning and decided it was time to change the very ugly light fixture that hangs above my stove. I purchased the lights in Lowe's, took down the ugly one (yeah!) and put up the new one. It couldn't have been easier to hang and what difference it has made. There is a dimmer switch attached so they can be kept low for mood lighting or cranked up so you can actually see what you are cooking.

What I really like about these lights is that you buy the fixture and then pick the glass canopies to attach. There is a great selection to pick from, in all colors and a variety of shapes. The glass canopies ran me $12.50 each (and you can see I purchased 3) so not cheap by any means, but worth it. It changes everything about that area.

They are have "conversion" kits so you can turn one "high hat" into one of these. I helped a friend install three above her bar and they look great and were very easy to install.

Ok, so on a "not so great note" I'm going in for some major surgery this Tuesday. I'll be out of commission for a few weeks. I'm looking forward to getting this over with and going back to what I love the most-creating!

  2. You're in my thoughts, Christy. Take care, and here's the Law Of Tina for you, recently learned, hard to practice, but here goes: Relax and let others do what needs to be done. Take care of yourself. The rest will fall into place.
