My not so little Project

My kids were gone for a couple of weeks in California with Grandma and Grandpa Mason (thank you). I was pretty sure that I was going to go crazy with just me and the baby, but ended up going crazy with all the projects I gave myself. The first and most fun was redoing McKenna's room for her. Tate has just been in our room with us and it was time for him to move to his own room. I didn't want to put him in the basement, so Kenna was the obvious choice. I thought that if I gave her a big girl room and made it her own little retreat her feelings wouldn't be too hurt :) So this is the finished product. Sadly, looking at these pictures doesn't even come close to showing the HOURS spent on this room. I bought the quilt but decided to make the curtains, dust ruffle, duvet cover, and pillows. I also make her a memory board and modge podged her old "DREAM" letters. The colors are a little different in these pictures then in real life. I apparently had the night mode on while taking the pics. Anyway, you get the general idea. Well, when she got home, she was so excited that she almost cried. The moment couldn't have been any sweeter!

Little tribute to Nick and Justin

I modge podged her night stand too to make it fun.

This is the bottom of the dust ruffle and the bedskirt.

The duvet cover is the polka dots and these are the pillow I made, except for the sham.

I am so happy that she loves going to bed every night and keeps thanking me for her "big girl" room. I was also able to gut the whole house and go through everything and have a yard sale. I was also able to sell her old bedding and decor for $60. YAHOO! No more clutter around for me!! HEAVEN!
