- I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

My current painting project
When I was pregnant with Jasmine a little over a year and a half ago I painting her nursery (this was before we even knew we were having a girl.) I chose a light green with a pastel orange trim to match the crib bedding my mother had bought us for Christmas without being too gender specific. Most of the people who saw it said they really liked the colors I chose...I have never liked them. They have pretty much annoyed me ever since I got them on the walls and I didn't really believe people when they said they liked it. (How could they? It was so... uugh!) So now that it's been a year & a half and Jasmine has moved out and the room currently serves primarily as my computer room, I decided to repaint it in more neutral, Gina-friendly colors. I've noticed that my design style tends to center around natural, earthtone colors, and my choices for this room prove to be no exception. I didn't want to have to replace the curtains so I chose colors that would match those. I also wanted to be sure that the next time this room serves as a baby room that the colors would still compliment the crib bedding. What I ended up with was a color called "Bleached Wheat" for the walls (It's a yellow-beige color with green undertones.) And a medium brown for the trim. I am currently only at the half way point in the project. I painted the walls yesterday. Today I plan on taping it up and doing the trim. So far I like it. I think the wall color is great! I'm a little apprehensive about the brown but I'm pretty sure it will be fine. When my painting job is finished...It will be time for Russ to come in and build some shelves in the closet. Yay, I love home improvement projects! I'll let you know how it goes.
