So you are pregnant and the ‘nesting bug’ is kicking in. You have spent soo much time scouring the internet and magazines for nursery design inspiration. You want your nursery to be perfect and beautiful with all the latest ‘on trend’ items. You see those magazine spreads of nursery design reveals and drool over everything. It is your dream to have that nursery for your baby, nothing but the best right?
The reality of creating a nursery is quite different.
THIS would be the number one item in our home that I get the most comments from guests about (and there is lots of cool stuff in our home if I do say so myself):
When I redecorated the playroom I wanted something different and creative to top it all off. I made this super-easy lampshade using only a basic paper lampshade, glue and paper ‘patty pans’.
When I say easy, I mean easy.
It's amazing just how versatile a color pink can be. From subtle shades and pastels to bold bubblegum hues, as soon as you have a baby girl you will quickly learn that too much pink is never enough.
But rather confining girls to a world formed by mixing white and red, it's easy to add other tones to create a stylish look that uses tasteful highlights and pops of color for points of interest.

Working towards a due date gives you a concrete time to work things out and make sure everything goes together perfectly.

For most people, the idea of putting together a color scheme for their bathroom can seem daunting.
I have had so many questions and requests about this so finally I am going to let you all know how I made this dresser:
I made these quite a while ago, before baby 2 was born and absolutely love them. They are so bright and colorful I use them in heaps of my display shots for the artwork in my WallFry store and customers have been asking me where I got the dresser.
I have seen these fabric covered letters around and I loved the look of them so thought I would have a go at making one for my baby daughter.
It seemed pretty straightforward, but I scoured the Internet anyway for a tutorial or some tips. I found this tutorial to be very detailed and helpful.
I have always wanted to create a cookie Christmas Tree and this year I finally found the time!
I purchased one of the star cookie cutter packs online (you can get these everywhere now), found a rolled cookie recipe and got baking! You may prefer to do these with gingerbread, but I am not a fan so went with a vanilla cookie base.
We have a space in our entry hall that was looking pretty barren and..... vacant even though it was a major thoroughfare for bikes and play.
I wanted to make use of this bare wall and had seen so many fabulous photo walls and framed art walls that I thought this would be the perfect space to create a feature wall with a difference. My goal was to make it as eclectic as possible while still maintaining some design integrity. We are really happy with the results:
