So, it's a cold, drizzly spring break and my kids needed a break from video games, and I needed a break from the noise. I found this blog... http://brandyscrafts.blogspot.com/2011/03/rainbow-cookies.html, and decided to try it! The kids LOVED it!

My mom helped me duplicate a chandelier I saw online that I LOVED. Well, we didn't totally duplicate it, but we used it as our inspiration. Here is a link to the original... http://www.deannawish.com/ccbran_briarw.htm . I'm not sure how much it cost, but I've seen similar cost up to $4000, and I thought "I could totally do that!" So, my old brass chandelier got spray painted white, I cut some branches off the tree in my front yard, wired them on with the help of my mom and her designer eye, spray painted the whole thing and voila! I think I love the result and it cost me less than $20 (spray paint isn't cheap and I used 5 cans).
