Our First Makeover

My husband and I are huge fans of HGTV and watch in awe as rooms are tranformed, we are even more mesmerized when old furniture is tranformed into something completely new with just a splash of paint. We always wish we could do it but the fact of the matter is we never have the time. A few months ago we came across the cutest little desk on Craigslist being sold for no more $15, yes you read right $15! It was an offer to good to resist and the desk was in a pretty decent condition, perfect for our first makeover effort.



The top of the desk had quite a bumpy texture and a few other nicks here and there which we sanded away and then used a woodfiller to smoothen out the surface. It was a job we could have easily accomplished over two weekends but with our crazy schedules it took us a few months to get the job done. We used some left over paint from previous projects and bought some new hardware and bought a paint sample to use to paint them. And wahla!






For now this will be our fist and last makeover, hopefully when we have more time on our hands we can find a new peice to work on. Till then we will enjoy our new desk and bask in the satisfaction of something we did, together.

Sorry for the Absence

It's been almost a month since my last post.. trust me it seems longer..and i am so glad to be back.. These last few weeks have been really crazy. The Holy month of Ramadan started..for those who don't know it's the month of fasts and prayers. The fasting was not hard after I got used to the no coffee in the morning and we only have 6 more days of fasting left. Not so bad.

Speaking of bad, my hard drive crashed, my external harddrive that had 6 years of work accumulated on it and which I had stupidly..yes i admit very very stupidly had not back uped anywhere else. I have so learned my lesson. After the shock wore away I did my research and finally found someone to help we fix it.. he couldn't and instead of returning it evaded my calls for over a week. Once I got it back I sent it to the wonderful Cherry Systems in Atlanta who have recovered all my files and will be mailing them over to me soon.. phew what a relief. Now I plan to back up my back ups.

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse my computer crashed leaving my lost and disconnected. I would wait till my husband got home every night not for him but for his computer. Again we did our research.. fixing our computer was costing us to much money so we settled on getting a new one. We bought it yesterday..so I am back and my luck is changing for the better.

My first few months on Etsy had provided me with no sales and I didn't think I was ever going to get any but I guess I was wrong because I woke up to 4 sales one morning thanks to blinkthls and another sale the next morning thanks to thingsinstuff











I feel pretty blessed right now. Thank you God.

Photowalk

This Saturday my husband and I joined the Westfield, NJ Photowalk for 2 full hours of walking and photographing.It was a pleasant afternoon and I took almost 200 photographs and am now going through the neverending task of weeding out the not so good ones and working on the decent ones. In the end I have to pick 2 to submit to the photowalk website. Those 2 will make up the 100 that all the Westfield Photowalk participants took. Bear with me while I explain the maths of it all. 1 of these 100 pictures will be selected to represent Westfield. 900 cities are participating meaning 900 pictures of which 1 will win the grand prize and there will be 10 honorable mentions, lots of prizes included.

Now I have narrowed down my photographs to 20 something..
I have till Saturday to submit my final 2 picks and need a little help. Tell me in the comment section which ones you like and which you don't. I need all the help I can get.

Twitter

I have a love and hate relationship with Twitter and I had temporarily given into the hate when I rashly deleted my account. It has been over a month since that fateful day and there where more than a few times when I would go to the twitter page and pause, should I go back to it? Or was I right to delete it? I don't know whether I was right or wrong but today I went back and found out that I could restore my deleted account. I'm not sure if I loved it enough to make a new one but restoration seemed right. So in a nutshell, I am back and ready to tweet.

So follow me and I'll follow you at http://www.twitter.com/henatayeb

Auction Success

Wow, so ecstatic. I had currently taken part in an online photography auction. I had prepared myself for failure, I had expected zero interest and even less sales. After a month long wait I came out surprised, shocked and ecstatic. I sold four photographs. Not one but four. Still can't believe it. Here's what I sold:
