new goodies

Well, my new goodies arrived from the big brown truck yesterday!

I worked on some pages today but unfortunately I ran out of light to take pictures. So I'll have to share those tomorrow. But I will show you the frames my hubby made for my son's room. They're all finished...

These are the posters I mentioned that I bought when we went to Gatlinburg last month. You have no idea how hard it is to find bear posters! (I mean, ones that don't cost a fortune). I got these ones for $3 each. I bought poster frames on sale at Hobby Lobby for $10 (for both) so I could use the glass for the frames. The wood was leftovers we had in the garage and the stain cost less than $4. So my son has custom framed "art" for $20. Not bad! Especially considering the frames I really liked were $24 a piece (not including the posters or the glass). And they look so cute in his bear room!

Before I had a little boy I always thought it'd be more fun to have a girl. They have cute toys, cute clothes and cute rooms and all the "girly" stuff that goes along with it. But being the mom of a little boy for over 4 years now has taught me that boys are just as much fun! Good thing I have one of each!

I love the theme! I need a pic of the whole room, so I can see what creative stuff you've done! :-) You can just email it to me... and a pic of Olivia's room now too... and a pic of them coloring in their giant coloring books...

Okay, okay. I'll settle for a live video feed from your living room. LOL

I'll get right on that...

Ben's room isn't finished yet, just doing bits and pieces. Trying to redo his room on a $0 budget! lol
