Sneak peek because I can't wait any longer...

So, remember when I was all excited about showing
you guys my new
on a budget which was completely underway and actually
almost complete
but then we moved, so I had to
start all over
in a new room in a new house?
Before it was finished?


Well, I'm almost done with the new Big Girl Room.
Which no longer has '/Nursery' attached to it
because Ellie's crib is in our room.

I couldn't imagine Ellie sleeping in a room that we were not sleeping in.
It's just too weird.
Willow slept in our room forever.
She even had her own room and then we just ended up putting her big girl bed in the corner in our room.
She ended up in there at some point every night anyway...
But she's getting bigger, and therefore needs her own room.
Sniff. Sniff.

Well, since I'm not completely done with her room,
but can't stay away from the blog any longer,
but am super-swamped with holiday sewing and 'our' projects that need finishing up,
and can't contain my excitement for that much longer,
I wanted to give a little sneak peek into Willow's Big Girl Room:


It's almost all handmade/DIY, free, thrifted, repurposed, or upcycled.


And most definitely within a new (even lower) budget- just to see if I could do it.


It's turning out pretty sweet.


I'm pulling inspiration from lots of places...


And Willow has even been creating some art for her room.
I love that she loves making stuff as much as I do...


I just have a few things to finish up and then I can't wait to post the finished result!


- once I get the new room finished up and posted-
I'll be posting some tutorials for everything that we made.
That way you can have a super-cute room too without spending a wholelotta moola.
Yippee for everybody.

And I'm still working on making a PDF sleeve pattern for that upcycled dress.
Don't worry.
I didn't forget.
It's just a busy time of year. I'm sure you all can relate.

Happy Thursday!


  1. I'm twenty and these photos have made me want my very own 'Big Girl Room'! I cant imagine waking up in a bad mood in a room with that colour scheme. Good work! xx

  2. Haha! Thanks so much :) Maybe I should rethink MY room now...


I love me some comments! Thanks!
