I met Alison when I lived in LA. I was there for a college internship and working with at-risk youth. Sounds exciting, doesn't it! I got involved with a college group at a local church and met Alison through one of our events. We never became close friends, BUT, it's funny how life works.
We reconnected ten years later through Facebook and just have loads in common: cooking, design, and our faith.
Alison is the project queen and recently started blogging about her DIY projects for their newly built home, along with her fabulous cooking adventures.
Just this week she made a gorgeous capiz shell chandelier:
It's an amazing transformation from this 'builder-basic' light. Can you believe it's the same light, just with more style?
I know so many of you probably have a light just like this. Alison does a great job of explaining each step and you don't have to be an expert DIY'er to make it happen.
Just one more look, because I think it's so amazing.

Her projects don't stop there. Here are a few of my favorites:
Enjoy your weekend! It's a snow globe here and I'm hunkered down working while the hubby entertains our boys. This may be a good day for malted chocolate chip cookies. Just saying...
let's be friends!
