getting there....

As I am working on the changes to my blog I figured I would at least show you one thing I have been up to....

Decorating a house that is 3 Times bigger than your old one is a pretty big task. Especially when your 6 year old's room has bare navy blue (he wanted New York Yankee Blue) walls! Besides the Yankees, he LOVES Angry birds and Super Mario Bros. but there is a shortage of design elements in each of those small categories! Artwork was practically non existent! So I made my own Angry Birds artwork on 12X12 canvases I picked up @ Big Lots for $6 each! Some acrylic paint and an evening staring at the game screens and viola!

Here is an upclose shot...

I love how they came out and more importantly so does my son! Here is how it looks in the whole room...

I'll be back soon but in the meantime...can anyone recommend a good and inexpensive blog designer? I am computer illiterate apparently.....;)
