Project Redecorate My Daughter’s room

My project to redecorate my daughter’s room commences tomorrow and I am totally unprepared.

I bought a few new storage items from Land of Nod and that was going to be it really.  Then my mom said she would buy her a new bed, what?!  Time for some serious redecorating instead.

I honestly do not know what I was thinking when I decided to paint her room this lime green color (my son unfortunately has the same color) as well as two giant pink circles :/

Well it has been four years and I am so over it!  She also has a full sized IKEA bed which unfortunately has fallen apart too many times…hence the new bed from grandma (which will be a twin).

So my dilemma is, new storage and bed will be here by Tuesday and I haven’t painted the walls yet…or gotten a mattress…or gotten rid of the old bed 😦

Some photos to help visually with my dilemma…

For an idea of what it will look like finished, I made a pinterest board. Check it out here, http://pinterest.com/BleuOiseau/aud-s-room-redecoration-project/

Happy Monday ya’ll 😀

The Sketchbook Project 2013

Eeek!  I am actually going to send off my sketchbook along with my daughter’s tomorrow!!

I received it months ago but agonized over what to put in it…actually I got one for my daughter first and then was convinced by a friend to do one as well.  Since they have a photolog category, I thought why not.

I decided to do one where I took 3 photos and edited them 4 different ways…check out the sneak peek:

I just took pics of my daughter’s so I don’t have them loaded up yet.  She was so excited to know that her sketchbook would be going to New York and that in July we can see our sketchbooks again in Portland at the Ace Hotel.

I am excited to share this project with my seven year old whom at one point I thought would never sit down and color…

Project 52: A Place in Time

I have joined some lovely ladies in recording the changes of one spot over the course of a year.  I know I failed miserably in documenting 52 weeks of self portraits.  I am hoping this will work out much better…

I chose a view from the corner of my garden.  It is a lovely little spot where the birds congregate and converse.  I imagine them having wonderful conversations…or rather they are moving in the hustle and bustle of bird life like city folk moving down a New York street and in and out of cafes.

I love this spot and what we have made it into over the last few years; a bird sanctuary.  There are quite a few species to see at any given time…chickadees, nuthatches, Oregon juncos, Stellar jays, Scrub jays, spotted towhees, finches, sparrows, hummingbirds, and more.  An occasional hawk will fly through.  I have even see the Northern Pygmy owl once!

I am excited to document the changes of this little area.  We planted high bush cranberries for the birds as well as currant and service berry…along with the elderberry tree.  So plenty of changing colors to come!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the changes to come in this little view:
