For Father’s Day this year I wanted to create something sentimental that my kids could create themselves. I have always loved reading the hilarious answers that our daughter gives when she has done questionnaires at school. It is so funny to hear children’s opinions and observations about their parents – they are usually brutally honest and hilarious at the same time 😉
We recently moved my 2 year old daughter into her own room. Sharing a room with her older sister was not working how we hoped it would. We went through many nights of her climbing out of her crib, waking her older sister, resulting in both of them crying and getting upset. It was not a good fit for this stage of life but luckily we had an office that we could convert into a bedroom for her. This meant that we had to do some time-consuming tasks like packing, moving furniture, and cleaning – but it also meant that I got to re-decorate a room just for her. There is a bright side to everything, right?
While brainstorming decorating ideas and perusing Pinterest, I found an idea for a DIY wall hanging. I have been seeing these sweet wall hangings everywhere lately and l love the soft texture that they bring to a room. When I found out how easy and budget-friendly this project was I couldn’t wait to get started! I got together with a couple of friends and we had a craft night while working on wall hangings for our homes. Warning: after you make one of these and see how simple and easy it is, you’ll want to make one for every room in your house!
Valentine’s Day is approaching and I am excited to celebrate and decorate! I created some free Valentine’s printables for you to help you decorate your home as well. My husband proposed to me on Valentine’s Day in 2005, so this holiday is extra special for me. My most favorite Valentine’s gift will always be my engagement ring!
