Love & Marriage

I saw this on Pinterest today and wanted to share. I liked the message in it, and most often we find ourselves giving up in our marriages instead of continuing to work on it. I can't say it enough: no one said it would be easy. It is going to be hard and some days you want to call it quits; but at the end of the day love conquers all-the trick is letting it and not allowing things to build up. That means no holding grudges, what's past is past. Focus on the future. :)

The only thing I didn't like about one of the 6 ways was to ignore faults. I agree to some extent; but if a person's fault is hazardous to their or anyone else's health then those do not need to be ignored. As for everything else, this blogger was right on. Enjoy!

I've been thinking lately, that I want to update my blog and "brand" it. Maggz is a nickname that I've been called for so very long; and as much as I loved it in relation to my blog, it just didn't seem to be the right title. Thus, you will see my new blog updated to: MaggyDawn .
I have a love for design, crafts, and wedding planning. If my path ever chooses to expand on any {or all} of those things, I wanted to have a name that stood out and seemed professional at the same time. Thus MaggyDawn. So, now I'm sure you're wondering where I came up with this.

Maggie Dawn is my name-says it on the birth certificate. My mother was an avid soap opera fan back in the day; one of her favorite characters was named Maggie, and thus my name was chosen.  Dawn is a family name, my grandmother's middle name was Dawn; my mother's middle name is Dawn, and I was graced with the same middle name. What do those names mean? Well, Maggie is of Greek & Enligh origin and means precious pearl. Dawn is English and means sunrise. I just take it as I'm precious and always strive for a sunny disposition-which is how I truly behave. ;)

Did you notice I made a slight change to my name in the title? I dropped the "ie" for a "y". I felt this made it more unique and creative; besides, most people try to spell my name with a "y" anyway. So there you have it: updated blog and the why.

My goal is to post as much as I can and have it be inspirational, meaningful, or informative. You never know where life may take you, so therefore you have to be intuitive in all aspects as to how you present yourself. Please feel free to provide feedback, as to what you would like to see posts on or if you would like to requests my services in the design/craft/event area.


Paint it Red

red, red, red.

I love red hair....I think the right person can pull it off and look amazing. I'm debating on putting red highlights in my hair in a few weeks-we'll see. I'm more of dye it all at once kind of girl, as opposed to streaks. It just doesn't seem to suit me as well. #redspiration

Crafty Crafty

Been a while since my last post, and it was a rather sad one (I was having a memory lapse). I've been so busy crafting lately, here's what I have on my list to work on!!

sharpie. white mugs. bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. 
 you'll like the twist I made on these mugs (Hoping they'll be cute dirty santa gifts) ;)

I can't decide which wreath I want to do (either one will involve snow flakes and reindeer too):

                    Christmas Wreath.                    ornaments, a styrofoam wreath, a glue gun, a wooden letter and glitter are ALL you need to make this by joanne

I've been bitten by the shutter bug!!!
          Old Shutter Becomes a Coat Rackshuttershutter
And I'm suddenly into vintage maps (well I've always liked them, but just recently figuring out how to incorporate them into our home):
DIY Map Canvas-this is what I want to do for the Living Room nowI like this idea for a "powder room" except only have one wall covered in the map wallpaper-the rest of the walls could be a tan or dark brown.recycled chairs and mapsMemory Lane Coasters: maps of where you've been, modge podge and stone tiles

OH and let's not forget cotton! (very southern and can add a little rustic touch)

Cotton and Burlap wreath..deep south style....I would love to do this!!Amy.Fresh cotton for arrangements. Think this would be awesome for your wedding!Cotton Plants for Floral Arrangements
