1  Re: Help Me Loose Weight Swap in The Swap Gallery by stephanieyoo on: March 31, 2009 01:28:02 PM
Yay! What a surprise! I got my package from Kimberly_Star late yesterday afternoon- what an awesome job she did! Totally worth the wait, Kimberly! Now, for pics:

First are the "water ghosts". I needed a way to keep track of how much water I was drinking, and these are perfect and so cute! I just move a ghost from the freezer side to the fridge side everytime I down 8 oz! Bonus: my daughter gets a kick out them!!!

Next is the amazing chest full of motivational quotes. You can't imagine how awesome I think this is, Kimberly. It helped me already this morning- I felt like an ice cold Pepsi, but grabbed one of these quotes instead and kept my head in the game- another ghost moved to the other side of the fridge!

The third thing she made me is this gorgeous yoga frame. She painted some different poses, and did a really amazing job. I love the paper in the center, but I think for now I'll put in a picture of myself pre-pregnancy to remind myself of my goal!!

And finally, she sent me an extra- A RESISTANCE BAND!!! I so almost bought one of these two days ago...I needed one to complete some exercises I've been doing, but couldn't justify the purchase... Emma is trying it out first!  Grin

Thanks Kimberly... you've blessed me so much!!

2  Emergency hiding place for toys (with pics!) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by stephanieyoo on: January 15, 2009 05:19:47 PM
Okay, so we had friends coming over within the half hour and toys strewn ALL OVER the place! I know this just never happens to anyone else, right?

A glue gun, an empty cardboard box, scrap fabric, and ten minutes helped me solve this crisis (okay, so I'm exaggerating). It fits in a perfect little nook in my bookshelf and matches our color scheme (read: no kid's toy box in bright primary colors shouting for attention!). We fill it with toys during the day when Emma is done playing with them, then take the box into her room at the end of each day to put things where they belong.

The best part? It cost me nothing and used up extra fabric!

You would think it wouldn't be very sturdy, but a crazy two-year-old boy climbed in this thing! It held it's shape and survived!

Hope it helps someone else as much as it's helped me!!

3  Fun Baby's Room! (with pics) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by stephanieyoo on: January 15, 2009 05:04:13 PM
I wanted to decorate my baby girl's room with two things in mind:
       1. It had to be something that could grow with her.
       2. It had to be a room shareable by a future potential baby brother (we're short on space for awhile!).

Hence, the green color of the walls (nice and gender neutral), the woodland critters artwork (playful but not too "baby-ish".), lots of shelves and storage for organization (for me!!). She LOVES it! Literally, I walk into the room with her and she is calm and smiley!

We used a desk for the changing table (the pencil drawer stores diaper cream and other accessories, the top drawer stores diapers, middle drawer wipes, and lower drawer extra linens). Everything is within easy reach at changing time, and the circle mirrors attached to the wall keep her occupied and not wiggly! Bonus: later, when she's older, she can use the desk as a vanity, or just for... a desk.

The bookshelf we got from Target and use the canvas bins to toss toys in (easy clean-up). The closet holds many more drawers and shelves. We aren't using them all right now, but as quickly as they've filled in the last five months, I have no doubt she'll be using that space before long! Sorry the picture is sideways. I'll figure this out someday.

I did the artwork above the crib. Totally inspired from other artwork I found and loved (and saved myself $300). I filled the picture frames above the bookshelf with paper that matched the theme of the room, with the thought I would fill them later with her own artwork. Also there is a cartoon drawn by her late great-grandfather, whom she never got to meet.

Hope you like it!
