Swap 'n' Meet Saturday - Rosy Red Buttons

Aloha fabulous friends! Today is our very first Swap 'n' Meet Saturday! And I am so excited to introduce you to the amazing Camilla from Rosy Red Buttons.  As a newbie blogger, I get so excited when I think I have a truly original idea pop up or a knock-off no one has attempted yet. Then I met Camilla and her blog. At first I thougth she was stealing my ideas and not giving me credit, and I was a little miffed...then I noticed the dates, and some of them were posted before mine! It was so hilarious! The I just had a blast looking through her blog and seeing so many things I've either done similarly or have plans to do shortly. We became "kindred spirits" as my other bff Anne (ya know, of Green Gables) would say.

So if you love any of my projects, chances are you'll love Camilla. Here she is:

Hey Attempting Aloha friends! My name is Camilla and I am so excited to be here! I feel like being able to post on this awesome blog brings me that much closer to acutally semi being in Hawaii right? I think so. Charlie and I started talking after we realized we kind of have the same brain and work on the same projects at about the same time, just slightly different versions. We were even featured together here, so that kind of sealed the deal. We were probably seperated at birth. I run a little blog called Rosy Red Buttons. It has been all kinds of fun to do. I started it just because I was going to be doing so many remodels and projects in preperation for our first child, a little girl. She'll make her grand entrance in about a week. *Please.*

I also enjoy decorating and then re-decorating my house, so some of my projects involve that. I recently finished the master bedroom with all the furnishing and decor I wanted and said to my hubby, "Look it's finally finished!" He looked back at me and said, "We'll see." It has sat for 3 months relatively untouched, so I'm pretty happy about that. He is too. Here are some of my favorite projects from this year:
 Ruffled Mobile. I'm super particular about all the colors and patterns in the nursery, so I had to make my own. :)
Personal Picture Clocks. These make such a great anniversary or wedding gift!

Nursery Furniture Makeover. Oh boy were these ugly before.
 Ruffled Table Runner. Yea, I'm kindof obsessed with ruffles. These can be made as short or long as you need!

Custom Canvas Frames. I smile everytime I see it on my staircase.
Come by and see me at Rosy Red Buttons! I'd love to meet you and see your fun ideas and blogs. Thanks again, Charlie, for inviting me over, hopefully next time it will be to the 'real' Hawaii.... ;) You rock! Have a great Saturday!!
