I would like to introduce myself. My name is Ashley, also known as Smash or Smashley.
Like many of you, I spend so much of my time reading my favorite blogs. I always get so excited about new projects that inspire me, or recipes that sound like heaven. However - when I've attempted to recreate these things in the past - they don't turn out as great as the well-intended author suggests. In fact, they turn out pretty crummy.
So I will be your guide - I will make the crafts first - so you don't have to - to find out if they are as easy they seem. Most likely I will screw it up, knock over some paint, and make a general mess of things. But I hope you stay with me on my journey of self-improvement, home-improvement and learning all the lessons that life has to throw at me.

Before we get started you need to know the main players in this blog. Obviously I will need some help along the way. My side kick is GB, my sweet boyfriend. It is his home that I've moved into. GB was a bachelor for quite awhile so you can imagine the state that his home was in when I moved in. Little by little we are redecorating, redoing and renewing each room to make it 'our' home. (Or as he would like to say I'm making it the way I want it. Because what's wrong with a bathroom with no toilet paper holder? That's what the back of the toilet is for, right?)
|He looks tough here - but it was my best option. In most pictures he makes wonky faces (which is reason # 567 why I love him.)|
|I love his google eyes.|
Kane is GB's 6 year old Rottweiler. I wasn't too thrilled when I met Kane the first time. He's quite intimidating. But after 5 minutes with him, and almost being licked to death, I fell in love with him. He's basically a lap dog in a 120 pound muscle filled body. He loves to chase lasers and light shadows and bark at strangers.

Coming soon - I embark upon this journey with a DIY craft involving paint sticks. See you then.
