We want to announce the winner of our Owl Friend Give away, but first I want to catch you up on my week.
Unfortunately, I did not meet my deadlines this past week. My little ones were kind enough to share an awful stomach bug with me. Yuck! So unfortunately my deadline to share C's new room with you is going to be pushed back a few weeks. That's right, a few weeks. Thanks for your patience. At least I am on track with my foyer makeover, a project I am tackling at the same time. As you know remodeling is rarely ever a smooth process. Do you remember that dream headboard I ordered from Tues. Morning for $250?
Since I can't share my full remodel with you, I thought I would give you a little sneak peak at a corner in C's room. Here is one of my Owl Friends on C's newly reupholstered chair.
I could not resist this orange giraffe throw blanket, from Tuesday Morning ($39). It is made from bamboo, and is unbelievably soft! It does not make up for my missing headboard, but it is a step in the right direction!
I made this owl friend specifically to match his room. Here is a link to my Owl Friend Tutorial. Do you see the curtains behind the chair? I have been working on those for the past few days. This is where I am going to save big on my tight budget. Honestly if I can give you any advice, when it comes to decorating, if you can sew, then SEW! Anyone can sew. Don't be intimidated! I saved $125 per panel (I need 4 panels, so that is a savings of $500!) because I made these curtains my self. Even with that savings, I still had to pay for all other materials, (don't forget lining runs $7 per yard and you will need the same number of yards of lining as your front material).
I had to make a "be mine" pillow for his room. I know that this may seem like a Valentine's Day thing, but isn't that every mother's wish, for her child to be her little sweet heart? I know I will have to let go of him someday, but he is only 3 so the way I figure it I still have a few more good years left. These pictures are just a little teaser on what is to come. I promise I am working hard to finish this project, and share the full reveal with you!
I want to congratulate our Owl winners! I asked Jacob to pick the winner this week. He was asked to pick a number between 1-24. I thought this would be a good exercise for my kindergartner. After choosing numbers 90, 75, 28, and 50 he settled on 6 because his birthday was last week, and you guessed it, he turned 6! So congratulations Elizabeth, you are our lucky winner! Okay in the fullness of disclosure, I am going to have my hubby pick an additional winner, because you see, I have a feeling the Elizabeth, is non-other than my older sis! Crazy how that worked out! Thankfully my hubby passed kindergarten, and on his first guess picked 24! So we are going to have two winners this week. My big sis Liz, and Ariebellsmimi. Please email me your orders!
