Let there be Light!

It seems silly, but I'm REALLY excited we finally got a light kit for our ceiling fan in the living room. We've been living on daylight and a 3-click lamp for the past 8 months. Now that it's winter and it feels like the sun starts going down at 4:30, it's been a little dark in our apartment. The Christmas tree helped most recently, but when we took that down a couple days after Christmas, we were reminded how poorly lit our house really is. Here's before and after...

No, I'm not kidding. This is actually a picture of our living room with the new light "off". Obviously our eyes can see things better than a camera can, but still...dark.

Tah-Dah!! You'd never guess it was the same room! If you look really close at the "dark" picture, you can kind of see the outline of the big picture straight ahead.
. And the final hoorah; Our new family pictures/new living room wall! I've been so excited to get this done. I think it looks great!!

I have a new project that's in progress for Carrie's bows, but I won't take a picture of it until it's done. (You should be very excited. So far it's really cute!)

Last, but not least: A plug for Stephenie Meyer's "The Host". I wasn't interested in reading it when it came out (I think a year and a half ago?...) because I was still too into the Twilight series. However, I just finished "The Host" a few days ago and I LOVED it! One of those books that I would have been happy if it were twice as long... even though it already had close to 700 pages. Anyways, if you haven't read it, you should. :)

Looks so cute! And I am also a lover of light...gotta have it! I like the wall with the photos and things. And I am excited to see this bow holder you are making. They are so handy!
