Sweeter Dreams....are blessings from above!

Here we are in Olivia's room. Right now, she shares it with her twin brother...Quirt. When we first moved here...2 -1/2 years ago...I couldn't wait to start painting their room. I chose a wall mural that cmae out of one of thier pooh book-sets they got as one of their baby shower gifts. We were renting at the time the twins came along...and I never was able to decorate the nursery the way I, low and behold, when it came time....mama got creative with my special talents! A room with a view...designed for my babies, with love and color!

It was beautiful and refreshing....and they loved it, like they were part of the book itself...but now, I'm getting ready to change it all something a bit more princessy now that they are getting their own rooms. Quirt is going in the room next door, which is getting a makeover, Olivia in all her girlish wonderment, now thinks...she needs a new 're-do' as well! So, from Pooh to Princess Frog...the magic is getting ready to be transformed from Pooh's forest friends into the Mystical swamp land of the New Orlean's bayou! LOL! I never thought there'd come a day...when my life would become so ILLUMINATED!

If these walls could talk, from here on out...I can ONLY IMAGINE the transformations to come!

And Quirt? Well, that's a whole different room! Bright, bold and beautiful...just like the character he is! My little-locomotive, fast and ferious kind of guy that he 'truely' is! One 'BIG' & "BOLD" room is getting ready to be added next foor to this one....and CHANGE is in the wind! One Monster truck load at a time! mind is racing already!

So.....Stayed tuned!.....more's yet to be...REVEALED!

'Froggy Wishes' for my sweet-little Olivia

I've been toying around with the whole 'Princess Frog' concept of designing a new ami for my little Olivia! She loves the princess we got her the sheet set for Christmas...which in turn got me thinkin' about the theme of her room in general. What could I do to make it more personalized for her...not just the same old marketing stuff you'd find at the store...but something different and special, like my Olivia!

Well, right off the bat, I thought...I need to crochet a few cool pieces to compliment her bed set....anyone looked lately? I wasn't findin' a thing out there for the 'Princess Frog'. So, I thought....Okay, I'll reconstruct my own then. Well, I started on it....was making great progress, and then boom...I got sick and had to scrap the project for a while. Well, now here we are....a couple months later now, and I'm getting ready to repaint my daughters room...a fresh new fun color and decided to go off of what I started with originally....Purples, greens, and variations of water, sky and lily pads! And so, the 'Princess Frog' project has been revived!

I hope you'll follow me in our newest adventure...of taking Olivia into the land of mystical, magical princess-ship! She's always been a princess, since, why not treat her to a room full of fantasy...where we are allowed to dream in our very own be able to bloom and grow where we are the privacy of our own living quarters...resting in a beautifully inspired room of dream-filled fantasies...full of frogs and wishes...that really can come true...if you believe it, into the fullness of your everyday life!

We welcome join in our magical journey, to a world of rythym & blues, love & laughter, while we enjoy making magic with color and our very own imagination....with dreams of green, purple and blue...on a endless river of winding-wonder!
