Although I’ve been a bit slower going on my fall projects, our home has been filled with little creative moments that I just love capturing on film.
We’ve recently added an art hanging line in the living room and it has already been very well used. When the line went up, we had one simple rule : Space was limited, so only FINISHED art could go up. All of you with toddlers and preschoolers probably have a fridge full of 1/3 colored pages and drawings with 2 lines on them with a pending promise to “finish them soon” from your little ones. Well, this has been an amazing motivator. The line has been up for a little over a week now and we add pieces daily. We are due for our first rotation and a box of kept art will be created for keepsakes.
The Spielgaben set is never very far. We take it out multiple times a week for structured and free play. Building, connecting, piecing together and creating have become second nature to Little Miss and we couldn’t be happier. They’ve actually come out with an upgrade kit that we are pre-ordering this week. If you haven’t looked into this system for your little ones, please do. Best investment we’ve ever made.
And last but not least, I’m so grateful for a husband that sees beauty where most see trash. He had been promising me a head-board for a while now, but we had been just so busy that it would easily fall on the back burner. But with the move into the smaller room, he made it a priority. Did I ever mention we are pallet people? We pick them up and save them for just about anything. My husband has made our daughter’s big bed with them, made my first sewing table with them, made bookshelves with them… You name it, he’s thought about it. Also, a few weeks back, we were lucky enough to find a load of 150 year old barn wood for free. Put one and the other together and there you have it. He is planning on adding a few night stands in the next few months. I just adore it. The wood is gorgeous and the rustic look of it just makes me happy.
What kind of projects have you got going in your home?
