Drab2Fab: Four Marrs and One Venus

Good Morning Bella Nest Readers!
I am beyond excited to be here today to hang with you all!
Holly is just the Sweetest Lady in Blog land that I have met ..thank you lady for having me!

So a quick run down of who I am:

The Name is Jen
California girl, married my High School Sweetie 13 years ago in a Las Vegas Drive-Thru Wedding Window. No joke- it was Awesome! We have three boys ages 13, 9 & 5! We love our Baseball in this house, and I am a proud button wearing mom who cheers loud and spits seeds! I love change, flow, color, and organization! Cooking has become a new hobby of mine, along with crafts and sewing ohh-la-la! 

I started my little blog 4 months ago and have really enjoyed meeting other bloggers! Also it is amazing how much insight, inspiration and talent is out there! I eat it all up!

My blog is full of 3 Cute Boys...and One Stud
{oh, and crafts, cooking, you know all that good stuff}

So now that we are practically Best Friends....right?
I wanted to share with you a fun little project I put together.

You see, I have been wanting to put together A Family Gallery Wall 

I love the way they look, and Love arranging "special" items that mean so much to me.

Here We go!

Find "The Wall"
Gather all your items/photos
Start with the middle
And Build around it!

And you create...

Starting from the Top..then left to right.

Can I just tell you that I LOVE my New Family Gallery Wall!? It makes me smile every single time I look at it!
