Super Bowl Man Cave dreams using Olioboard and Spirit of Sports art

Man Cave the Super Bowl is coming! Would your husband like this room? I began my olioboard in a 2D room.

I soon found a room that gave my ideas a 3D view. Added panels and moved things around. This is my first entry in the Spirit of Sports Olioborad Super Bowl Man Cave contest.
I used other friends from twitter furniture in this board. @jbint designed the luxurious cashmere chair. @maybelinete 's sofa from her company @snugfurniture. I had so much fun creating this board and dreaming of making my hubby the perfect man cave for the upcoming Super Bowl.

During a BlogTalk radio with @tkpleslie Leslie Carothers of The Kaleidoscope Partnership ( discussed the upcoming contets on olioboard. She introduced us to a group called Man Cave Worldwide. I found thier facebook page where they featured top man caves. This olioboard is isnpired by one of those photos. Motorcycles in the man cave! What could be more manly! This is my 2nd entry in the Super Bowl Man Cave contest on olioboard sponsored by Spirit of Sports.

Wish me luck and please give me a vote on one or both of my entries. The top two will be featured on the Today Show this February! Imagine that, my olioboard being flashed across my favorite morning show! Dream come true for 2012 I'd say!

i love Coffee

It's 2012! The first Monday of 2012 in fact! What was the first thing you grabbed when you woke up? Well after your phone I mean... LOL I get my coffee pot going!
This is my blog devoted to my love of coffee! One of my resolutions for the new year is to blog at least once a week about specific topics that matter to me. Perhaps if I write about things I love others will find something to say or just enjoy reading my crazy words. At any rate, coffee is one of my passions! I love a good cup of coffee in the morning and an hour or two with my friends on twitter!
I received an awesome gift this year for Christmas from my parents. Now that I have one I'm not sure how I lived with out it for all these years! As much as I love coffee, you'd think I'd have always had one. A grinder! Yeah! I have fresh ground coffee in the morning! Woot!

Happy New Year... Here's to keeping your goals, resolutions, and may all your dreams come true in 2012~

Let's dream big!

As always, I appreciate your comments & questions below.
