i'm still messing around with pictures from our family room
so i thought i'd take you on a little tour of my littlest little's room

i posted about my older daughter's room & craft desk last year

you can read the full post here 

i realized i never posted about my younger daughter's room on this little old blog here
and it's such a fun room i had to share ... kay?!


she spends a lot of time in here ... drawing, playing, dance parties
yeah lots of fun girlie stuff goin on in this room here


i painted this room right away when we moved into this house almost 10 years ago
it was a boys room with dark walls, and she was just a little baby, so it needed some bright happy colors.


the bed & dresser were a set that was gifted to her by my parents & my aunts for her birthday, but this desk & hutch thingy was a super cool score at a garage sale for twenty bucks!


a little cleaning, sanding and a coat of really really light mint green paint
made it the perfect desk for her ... i was so happy to find it


she likes to draw. little cute things like that
and put them in the sneakiest little places :)


a few years ago i made these bendy dolls 
they sure are cute but very time consuming and once you make one you want to make a million
... beware!




she likes all the garlands and things i sew for my shop
so she made one of her own ... i love it.
that's an easy project to make with your girls if they're wanting to learn to sew
just cut squares and feed the tops straight into the machine, that's it.








the little elephants were made from a pattern i found here



when i painted my both of my girls' rooms, i wanted to have scripture incorporated onto their walls in some way ... since it's where they sleep, rest and spend a lot of time ... having God's Word right there in front of them seemed to be a great way to remind and embed His Promises into their tender minds & hearts ...


since i like to doodle & journal, i figured that was the way to go 
with sharpie paint pens and a little bit of acryllic paint


garden/plant baskets from Joanns are hanging on her wall 
to corrall all those little stuffed animals that will drive a mom to the brink of insanity


they were black when i bought them so a quick coat of spray paint did the trick


remember Lumpy? from the Heffalump movie??
well when my daughter was little, Lumpy was her best friend.
the little stuffed animal (she still has) went every where with her
every. where.
 like he's almost threadbare. but she still loves him :)
so i used a light projector and traced a picture (from google images) onto the wall 
and then filled him in with acrylics. it was fun, but i'm sad that the time went by so fast and soon she'll be ready to paint over him. so sad. 

wow. had to dig through the archives for that one :)

this is her now ...


she still loves lumpy enough to wear lumpy earrings ... i die.


she actually loves hangin out in her room
it's like here little fortress
and she's a bookworm ... she loves books
and her baby book for some reason. she reads it over & over again
and then comes to tell me things like 
"hey mama when i was in your tummy you wanted to eat hot dogs & cocoa pebbles!" 
yeah i kinda know babe. i was there.
she's a riot.


i loved this bunting when i saw it in my friend Christina's etsy shop
the little girl on the elephant. perfect.










the pom pom fairy garland post & how-to is over here

we took the shelves out of her old bookshelf and made it into a dress-up closet
with a tension curtain rod and some decorative hooks on the outsides to hang purses & necklaces


i think i need to make her a bulletin board...
she's always got little pieces of paper everywhere
she's a little on the sentimental side :)





people say this all the time when your kids are little ....

about how you need to enjoy & savor every moment cause they grow up really really fast



well it's really really true.

♥ much love
