Starting the Bedroom

Long ago I shared Jayne's safari room we created. Well, that was 5 years ago! He is tuning 5 now and it is time to de-nursery his room. For his birthday gift we are remaking his room to be Star Wars themed. It is still a work in progress at this point since there is no A/C in his room and you are not supposed to paint in 90+ heat. Here are a few of the parts we have finished though.

I found these super cute "baby" Star Wars characters in a yahoo search. I mounted them on solid scrapbook paper and they took he place of the baby animal pics in the frames. The frames will be painted one of the greys from the drawers below.

This super fantastic poster was already in his room. It now gets a spot in his poster frame instead of his giant zebra print. This frame will be painted too.

This is the one project that is completely finished. This set of drawers came from my mom's house and were purple. The are now a cool grey. He has 2 of these and they house most of his toys. A drawer for dinos, a drawer for cars, and so on. It is great for organizing and look nicer than a bunch of open bins. Plus they were free, which is always in our budget.

We still have to paint the walls and ceiling. Adam has also made a light saber sconce! It is super cool and will be mounted on the wall. As long as we are able to finish in time for his party I will be happy.


It's looking super already! I can't wait to see it when you're finished. Are you sad to have to paint over the nursery or excited?Sally x

I am excited, but little guy is little sad to see the animals go. I think he is going to love the end result though : )

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
