What I've Been Up To

I am such a bad blogger, but in my defense, it has been a little NUTS around here lately.  The kids are out of school, except for L who is in summer school (so he can get his therapy, keep his routine going and give me a little sanity time).  The kids had bible school last week and we were getting ready for the arrival of our houseguests.  You see, my BIL, SIL and niece just moved back from Texas and will be staying with us for awhile.  So, we've been attemping to purge some junk and move some stuff around to make room.  They finally arrived a few days ago so at least all the heavy lifting is done for now.  WOO HOO!  We are so excited to have them. 

I've been working on the girls' room a little.  The twin beds and the girls' comforter sets are in, but the rest of the bedding has yet to be made.  We're still working on picking out fabrics, etc.  The girls' are beyond excited about it. 

Here is a picture of their bedding.  It was a set for a loft bed so there was no bedskirt included.  E says the bedskirt has to be pink.  Gotta work on that sometime soon.  We've also got to make the headboards and pick out the fabric for that and find some new curtains.  The brown has GOT to go.   So much to do, so little time. 



  1. Love the fabric! I know that this room is going to be great when you finish it.

    You are kind to have family stay with you. The kids will probably love having their cousin there.

  2. OOh, love the bedding!!! It's so fun redoing a room! Enjoy it and your house guests!

  3. E has good taste... I think a pink bedskirt would look totally fabulous with those lovely comforters. Pink and green are my favorite combination for little girls' rooms. My youngest daughter has mainly pink and green fabrics in her room with pops of sunny yellow and it looks very pretty.

    You sound like you've got a pretty happening house these days, Tanya! Enjoy your time with your family!

  4. I hear ya about summer time being crazy time. I think things will settle down more in the fall.

    I LOVE the comforters that you picked for the girls and can't wait to see the rest of the room

    Enjoy your FULL house. YIKES!

  5. Love, love, love the bedding! I love that you went with a simple layout of double twins. It's a classic look!
