I want to paint my house!

I need help figuring out how to paint my kitchen. I love how open and big my kitchen is but now that I am wanting to paint, I'm so confused! What I am trying to decide is if I need to paint the breakfast nook too since it's pretty much attached to the kitchen. Since I am wanting to paint myself I figure I will have to paint both the same color since it will be too hard to get a crisp painted edge on the other side of my laundry door. Here are some pictures:

A few months after we moved

I love the grey in the new HGTV Dream Home but I think it would clash with my tile/counters/cupboards and would make it too dark.

So I was thinking a light green color..I have some pops of a bright green apple color in my kitchen now (kitchenaid mixer, teapot on stove, candles on top of cupboards) Maybe something like this....what do you think??

Christmas Gift

I am so happy that I started this blog with a giveaway! Thank you all for visiting and to the people who are already following my blog.

I love crafts! My favorite things to do are scrapbooking, sewing, and refinishing furniture. I am just now beginning to learn to crochet but sadly I have not finished ANY of the projects I have began. I wanted to take a beginners class at the high school near me but it starts next week while I am out of town.

Here is a craft I made for my little sister for Christmas last year. She wanted something for her walls and she loves blue so I decorated some wooden letters with paint and scrapbook paper! She loved it and I had a blast making them. Let me know what you think!

Oh and speaking of crochet, you should totally sign up for this giveaway: Crochet Name I wish I knew how to make one of these!
