1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Fun Sucker Valentine Cards on: February 12, 2012 12:32:18 AM

To make these cards, I just took a picture of my daughter holding a PVC pipe. Then I printed the pictures and glued them on some construction paper.  We punched a hole in the picture at the top of the PVC pipe and inserted a sucker.  This was a really easy card to make and my seven year old loved working on it. We got the idea from the Disney Family Fun website.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Boy's racecar room on: March 04, 2010 03:18:40 PM
We moved to a new house last October and I finally got around to decorating the kids' rooms. My boys will be turning 1 and 2 next week. (They will actually both be 1 year old for 5 days! LOL) My almost 2 year old is really into cars, so we decided to go with a race car themed room. They are sharing a room.

Here is the picture from the doorway. My soon to be two year old, Chip, is standing on the bed. Right now he is in the big crib and his little brother is in the porable crib in the corner, but when he starts sleeping in this bed, his brother will move into his crib. I still need to make a quilt for his race car bed.

The mural spans two walls. It is a wall paper mural. I cut uout all the pieces and pasted them up with border paste. The dresser was mine when I was a kid. I just painted it freehand with old craft paints and it doubles as a changing table.

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Peanuts Gang on: November 06, 2009 09:27:49 PM
My limited sewing skills are self taught, so when my 5 year old told me she wanted to be Lucy from Peanuts for Halloween, I panicked. I don't do sleeves well. I couldn't find a Lucy dress or pattern for that matter so I ended up using the top of one pattern and the bottom of another and I think it turned out pretty ok.  Cheesy My daughter was really happy with it.

Her 19 month old brother was Charlie Brown...just a little fabric paint, a yellow tshirt and some eyeliner for his forehead and that costume was complete. Her 7 month old brother was snoopy...I didn't have time to make that costume, so I bought a cheap lamb costume and replaced the lamb ears with a pair of my husband's socks.

Here is my little peanuts gang...

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / If you had a pink stove and oven...? on: July 26, 2009 06:31:39 PM
We are thinking about buying an older house that has an older kitchen. Most of the house is updated, but the current owners just never got to the kitchen and it has a pink wall oven and a pink cooktop. The cabinets are white and could be painted any colort and the formica counter tops are ivory. We aren't wanting to to a gut the kitchen remodel right away, so I have to work with the pink.  What would you do?

I know pink lends itself to the cupcake theme kitchen or I was thinking of painting the cabinets red and going with cherries as a  theme. DH wants to paint the walls yellow and the cabinets robins egg blue...no theme in mind.

We do have a huge collection of cobalt and sunflower fiestaware so I wouldn't mind something they would work with (even if I had to buy a few more pieces in other colors to make it work, that is cool.)
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Football Nursery for my Son on: November 25, 2008 12:43:31 PM
My son is 8 months old and I am finally finished with his nursery...now we have another baby on the way in March...maybe I can actually get this one a nursery before he is born. LOL

We are big Steeler fans, but we wanted to do a nursery with a generic football theme and decided we wanted an old fashioned look, as opposed to modern stuff.

I will try and take you "around" the room in order. This first picture is a wallpaper mural. Having sloping ceilings, it was really hard to find a wall for this piece, so I ended up trimming it a little and putting it on the slope instead of the flat wall. We have replaced the ceiling fan since I took this picture. I still have some pillows to finish for the beds and I want to add a chair rail under the mural.

The pictures above the changing table are scans of the covers of two of my Dh's favorite boyhood books. He loved reading the Chip Hilton sports series...our son is named Chip (Just a coincidence...not because of the books!LOL)

We bought this lamp on ebay...it is from Sears Robuck 1977. We also got bookends and a clock from the same era. The bucket was purchased after Easter in the Clearance aisle for $1.00 at Target.

I bought the D Fence sign from Oriental Trading Company and painted it.

I got the idea for this mural from a custom wallpaper kit. I didn't want to pay $125 for something I could paint myself.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Painting laminate cabinets??? on: June 11, 2008 10:35:42 AM
I am really tired of my dark brown laminate kitchen cabinets. At some point I plan to completely replace them, but that isn't in the immediate budget. We considered having the laminate redone in white, but I really don't want to put out that much money on something I plan to replace a few years from now. I read some great things about Majic's Dimond Hard Acryllic Enamel. The claims are that you can actually use it to paint laminate cabinets without sanding or priming them first.

Has anyone ever used this product? I don't want to plunk down $60 a gallon plus shipping for something that really doesn't live up to the hype.
