a new camera!

We finally did it! We bought a digital camera!
It has only taken me 2.5 years to finally finish the girls room and put these head boards to use that I made 3 years ago! Of course I decided a few weeks ago that now the beds need bed skirts, but that is going to have to wait :)

This is Lulu's Bed

The closet door opened into the door to the room, so we took it down and I made this curtain to hang instead.

This is Regan's bed. I made her quilt while I was pregnant with Max, it has fun pictures of children holding umbrellas and mountains with trains going through them and various strips of colored/patterned fabric.
I just finished the valance this week. I used seat cushions from Ikea that just happened to match the colors of the girls room perfectly! This is my first official mistreatment. Really, I have been mistreating for years, I just did not know it had a name! Anyway, I did a very poor hand stitching job to create loops for the rod to go through and used my hot glue gun to keep the flowers from "drooping". I think they turned out pretty cute!

Here are pictures of our classroom. The book cases were custom make my my F-I-L, Thanks Dad!

If you weren't sure, I like bright colors! The kids help me to design this space, and even helped with the painting (a little).

At first glance, I thought, "Beautiful! I could never do that!!" Then I saw that it all took you 2.5 years to put together, and thought, "That is exactly what I do!" I love it all. I'll have to post some photos of our years-long home projects. You can check us out at: I found you site on the KONOS loop.
