Simple Project

Today I wanted to add a little color to my daughter's stool. I bought the stool at IKEA. I made slipcovers for the the legs. It was very easy and she loves it. Now only if she would clean her room and she can actually use it. :)

What do think?!?!

Crazy Hair Day at School....

Well, my daughter is so very on top of things, NOT! She waits to the last minute to show me any paperwork from school or I have to go through her backpack to find it. So late last night I was reminded that today was crazy hair day at school. So I was up late researching crazy hair for school. And this is what I came up with. I just wished I had wire instead of pipe cleaners and black gel for her hair, but all and all I am HAPPY! And she is so excited to have a motorcycle on top of her head.

I got the idea because she wanted to wear her biker in training shirt, so why not put a motorcycle on top of her head. LOL :) :)

Look at the big smile! Can't wait for her to come home this afternnon and let me know what the kids and teachers thought of her crazy hair at school.

Karate Theme Bedroom

How I spent my Sunday afternoon. K's room needed a little more grown up look. My best friends, daughter K doesn't like anything too girlie and is really into Karate right now, K just received her orange belt the other day. Way to go K! Her mom and I found this awesome fabric awhile back at Joann Fabric. I think we got the fabric well before Christmas, oops! Better Late than Never, I say! So I finally made her valance, pillow case, a cover for her closet and comforter for her room.

The Pillowcase accented with K's favorite color orange...

 The valance....complete with karate girls, K got for Christmas!

K's room is complete  

K's closet....

 The K on the comforter can be for K or karate?!?!?
