I got my flower inspiration from this tutorial here. Admittedly, mine didn't come together as easily as hers. If I had made the tutorial it would have been censored. Too much ripping, thread breaking and cursing going on:) Anyways, using this vintage button as my center made me happy. I used the sketch from EBTKS and will enter this into the Die Cuts R Us challenge to use NO DP. They may say NO CP ( crepe paper) after this card too:)
Well, my post is late today because we have had no power. We had our electrical box switched out for something MUCH safer. This after a week of having many different children at my house. Because of the snow and President's Day my kids have been home A LOT. We have had MANY friends over. No electricty equals (Ahhh) the sound of silence. However, no electricity also means no heat, no music, no computer, no CRAFTING. What a BORING day. I have a billion things to do and couldn't do any. I wouldn't make it as a pioneer woman. One thing I did have time to do was take pictures of my daughter's room. It was a bit difficult because I only have one lens for my SLR camera. I can't pan out. Now I still have a few things to do in there, but let's imagine it's done shall we?????
This is my daughter's bed. It is sideways against her wall to resemble a couch. Believe it or not I need to make 2 more pillows. Have you ever seen Along Came Polly? Polly ( Jennifer Aniston) points out how much time people waste taking off and putting pillows back on their beds each day. I think of this whenever I see my daughter's bed now. But she does it and loves it....I think.
Here bed is flanked on each side by one of these cubed bookeshelves. Everything is from Ikea. We completely stole the idea from a room they had on display. Just changed out a few things. Also, her bed sits on the floor...no frame. Isn't that super cool...or super cheap depending on your point of view. Hey, $50 bucks is $50 bucks:)
This is her new dresser and super ROCKIN' mirror. I love that mirror. It's from Target and hangs by a rod and two wires. That's me in there:)
This is my daughter's giant window. We took a third shelving unit and turned it on it's side to create a window seat for her. She has plenty of room to add more books underneath. I am in the process of making a cushion to go on top of it. Sorry the picture is so bad. Difficult to take a picture of a window.
This is where her desk is now. It's inside the closet. She is very blessed to have TWO full size closets in her room. In fact, I think she has the biggest bedroom in the house. This works really well. She has a task lamp that she can pull over her work. Shelves on the left side. A cork board on the back wall. Books up above. We can close the doors and never see the mess:) This was my mom's desk from her old room. Thanks Mom! If you look closely you will see several of the paper projects I have made for her along with cards from me, my mom and other friends. I love that!
There it is... a room fit for a teenager. Nope! She isn't one yet, but she's getting there REALLY fast:( I am so jealous of this room. Her bed is SUPER comfortable and that comforter is so cozy. I often times fall asleep when I lay there at night with her talking. She is really lucky and thanks us often for this room she loves.
I'll try to get pictures of my son's room soon. Still have various pictures and a vinyl phrase to put up.
Hope you have a great evening!
