A toothache and a few recent projects

Hey guys, Thanks for all your nice comments on my Maui pics. For those of you that haven't been, I hope you get to go someday. For those of you who don't like to fly, maybe someone will find a way to pave a road in the ocean someday.lol!
I could use a little prayer. I've had a tooth that's been bothering me for several months now. It's a long story, but I've had two fillings including a medicated one, and finally had a partial root canal lastTues. They were supposed to finish it, but with all the pain I've been having, decided to set me up with an endodontist to see if there might be a crack or something they are not seeing (since it's not absessed). I've been on pain meds for a while now and finally the pain is letting up a little bit. I've had alot of people in my area praying, so I thought I would ask you guys too. I would really appreciate it!

Before I went to Maui and had the root canal, I worked on a few projects. Remember the contemporary house? She asked me to come back and redo her bookcases. She was also having a party for her little girl and wanted me to decorate the light fixture and table. She had a lot of really neat old books and we decided to put them in the top of the wood cabinet. I tried to create interest by using balance and scale in the bookcases. She has alot of really nice pieces!





She bought the butterflies and flowers. I used some of the green netting she had left over from Christmas and laid the flowers and butterflies around. Simple but cute! She put m&ms in the little buckets for the party.


I made this frame on a request and would be happy to make another one.


This lady needed an arrangement for her buffet. She had the container and wanted something that would go through spring. So this is what I came up with! She seemed to really like it.


Have a great rest of the week! Again.....I would appreciate a little prayer for this angry tooth! Thanks!!

I hate that you are having such a time with your tooth. I hope you get some relief soon! You did a great job on your client's home and I love that frame you made!

Kristen, I am so sorry to read that you are having such a terrible problem with your tooth. Nothing can make you more miserable than hurting teeth. I'm saying prayers for you. Your client's shelves look great, and that butterfly decor is so cute. I am so ready for spring, and that spring flower arrangement made me want to bring spring to my house too. laurie

Hi Kristen!
Your decorating looks terrific and I like your style!
Oh I feel so bad for you with your tooth! I had to have a root canal last Aug. and it went so bad. I ended up at the same type specialist you are going to. First of all I had to be on antibiotics and pain pills for what seemed like forever. They could only do so much until that infection went down. Then the first dentist broke the drill bit off in my tooth-I thought I was going to die! So off to the specialist I went. He said they could not remove it but he tried to finish the root canal and put a temp filling. He was a very nice guy and seems like he knew what he was doing. I was suppose to go back for it to be finished up and get the perm filling and crown by now. UGGH! I have been putting that off. The pain has never completely gone away it comes and goes. I may end up just having it pulled. There is just not many things that cause more pain then a bad tooth-you poor girl I can so relate! I will remember you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you can get it fixed up real soon and be relieved of that pain! Keep us posted!

I love the bookcases and how you arranged them, very lovely and the butterflys are so little girl. I'm sure she had a great party. Your frame and floral arrangement are both very pretty. Sorry for the problems with your tooth, hopefully it will be fixed soon. Your are in my prayers. Hugs, Marty

Hi Kristen...Nothing is more painful than a toothache! Of course you are in my prayers! And I love all of your projects! I am sure the birthday party was a huge success! I love the contrast of the beautiful Spring look and the snow out the window!! Keep us posted on how you are doing...hugs...Debbie

Dawnie said...

I will pray for your tooth...you wont want to hear this, but its something I've never experienced! At 50, I still havent had that to deal with.

Your decorating just amazes me. If you were close--you would be hired to help me all the time.

Lori said...

Sorry to hear about your tooth! I know it can be very painful.

The room you did looks great! I love the arrangement. You do such nice work.
I am going to visit your ESTY store I love all of your frames.

Kristen said...

I hope your tooth getts better SOON!

What a nice job you always do on decorating. I love the chandy with the butterflies!

Chari said...

Mornin' Kristen...

Oh Girlfriend, I'm so sorry that you're having a problem with your tooth...there's nothing more miserable than a toothache! Of course, I will pray for you, it would be an honor!!! Feel better, Sweetie!!!

Well my friend, you did a fabulous job with your friend's house! The bookshelves look great, but I must say that the pretty arrangement that you made for her buffet is my favorite...it's gorgeous!!! Loved all of the pretty frilly birthday decor too...fabulous!!!

Love & prayers,
Chari

Bo said...

Hi Kristen...a prayer with your name on it has just been sent up...
Bless your heart!
You really nailed it with the bookcase arrangements...those are sometimes so difficult to accomplish because we seem to want everything we own displayed. ;-) Bo

squawmama said...

Oh Kristen I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering with a toothache... I hope it is all resolved very soon and you’re feeling much better. I loved what you did to the bookcases in that home... so elegant... the butterfly decorations were just adorable...

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,

I have been praying for your poor tooth since you told me the other day. UGH!
I was hoping you were doing better by now.
I'm glad it didn't happen while you were in Hawaii.

The home is beautiful. Wonderful work!
~Melissa :)

Helen said...

Nancy said...

Oh Kristen, I am so sorry to hear about your tooth pain! I know it's the worst! Hopefuly it will be over soon!
Love the work you did in your clinent's home! Blessings, nancy

kimmcl said...

You poor thing! There is nothing worse than a toothache. I will certainly be praying for you. The bookcases you decorated turned out beautiful - you are very talented. A friend of my mom's just asked me to help her decorate her new addition and I'm so nervous. I've never decorated anyone else's space before. Wish me luck!
Thanks
Kim

Cathy said...

Diane said...

Kristen, I the endodontist solves you problem quickly. I'm thinking positive thoughts for you!

You have an amazing talent! I'm so in love with your bookcase rearrange! The flower arrangement & party decor are both beautiful.

♥♥♥

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Awe, hope you feel better soon Kristen! I'll say a prayer for you!

Momovthree said...

Kristen, I'm so sorry about your tooth. I had two wisdom teeth removed last fall so I can relate to tooth pain. It really is no fun at all. I hope it gets better for you soon

The butterflies are so sweet and the new frame you made is beautiful!! I hope you are having a great week besides the tooth.
~Michelle

imjacobsmom said...

Great shelve arrangements! They have great balance! I also thought that the birthday party decor was very sweet! I'm sorry to hear about your tooth. I am a Dental Assistant and I had to stay late tonight - we had a patient with an abcessed tooth late this afternoon that needed relief! We always hate to hear about the teeth that won't settle down or that have vertical fractures. ~ Robyn

KMfamily ;-) said...

oh..a tooth ach is the worst!! i truely hope you fell better!
Your flower arrangement is wonderful!Your client will get a lot of joy out of that.

ps..those vacation pictures were beautiful

Connie said...

Kristen,
How's the tooth coming along ? Very quiet over this way.
I do hope you get relief soon.
BTW, the house you just did was so pretty with the butterflies,etc. I have done about 5 houses myself, tho not as good as yours, but I cannot do my own. Probably because I am here everyday

Do take care.......

Nicole ~ said...

Kristen, I will say a prayer for your tooth. I am sorry you are in such pain.

You did a good job on the projects, and the arrangement is beautiful. You are so talented.

Tootsie said...

if anyone can relate to your tooth pain it is me...remember "stoner tootsie"? she will most likely be posting again from a bottle of pain killers near you! I am so scared of the dentist that I have a 1/2 molar in my mouth....that I obcessively brush to avoid painful infections!
good luck girl...I have my fingers and toes crossed for you!

Diane said...

Hi Kristen!
Thanks for dropping by! How's your toothache???

The little mini bundt cakes were a strawberry cake mix, with strawberry frosting but the added flavoring & milk to thin made the frosting sooo good! Let me know if you try it! ♥

Diane

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Bless your heart, Kristen. There isn't much worse than a toothache. Prayers going up for you. Hope they can figure it out SOON>

Loved your pictures today. What a picture perfect floral arrangement! I also loved seeing the bookshelves and the table top decor.

AND THAT FRAME!!! Who wouldn't love to have that??

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Miss Kristen~ By the looks of all your smiles, it seems Maui agreed with you all!! I have to say you looked gorgeous in the lavender print dress. Were you a model before you became a decorator? Seriously.
The flower arrangement was a nice compliment to her home, the perfect shades to go year round.

So sorry to hear about your tooth. It brought back memories of a similar experience I had. I turned up with a crack. My only advice...DON'T HESITATE to communicate your needs! Sometimes as patients we can become shy about asking for particulars in our care.
Fortunately this will pass and you'll be on the road to recovery. The good news is... this will allow you opportunity for a little, soft, cool and refreshing ice cream or sorbet. It lifted my spirits during my tooth aches.

Sweet Wishes,
Sars

Chari said...

Mornin' Girlfriend...

Just wanted to stop by this morning to say hello! I'm so glad that you came by my place for a visit...and so happy to hear that your tooth is better!!! I'm so thankful that the Lord hears our prayers!!!

Well my friend, have a wonderful day!
Love ya,
Chari

Melissa Miller said...

I'm soooo glad you are feeling better!
Great news! :)

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Kristen, I hope this finds you feeling better my friend. Nothing worse than a toothache. The shelves turned out "great"..I know she had to be pleased.. I love the butterflys in the chandy...and the runner down the table are just darling...the spring arrangement is firing my fever for spring..How exciting you've seen buds already. We haven't yet.. but I'm so ready for green and fresh breezes..really tired of winter this year...hugs ~lynne~

Move That Couch said...

Sorry about your tooth, I actually had a fall last winter and cracked a tooth and had to have it removed so I sympathize with the tooth pain. The bookcases look gorgeous. Bookcases can be challenging but fun.

tardevil said...

Hugs & prayers for the tooth! Love your projects! They all turned out great!

kel said...

oh my gosh.. toothaches are the worst! But I hate, hate, hate the dentist!

A Hint of Home said...

Sorry about your tooth. I was at the dentist myself yesterday--no fun! I hope you get it fixed soon and successfully.
Love the makeovers and your frames.

Deb said...

Praying for you, love all your creative ideas:) Hope your well soon:)
