Slow progress..but progress just the same July 30, 2010

I’ve been working on the sparkletots’ room for months now. Actually, it’s more like once a month I get some bright idea, start it and then never finish it.  That’s just how I roll.

One fine day I was perusing the internets and came across this.  This artist,  Debee Campos does such beautiful work and I love the colors she uses.  This little corner was so inspiring and I knew something like it would work in the girls’ room.   I went to Ikea ( love that place ) and found the paper lanterns on sale for a whopping 99¢. I hung them up with baker’s twine since there is no need to use them as lights.  Then I made a garland out of white thread and colorful round paper punches.   Actually I made two garlands.  The first one got all tangled on itself and ended up as I picked it up. Not my finest moment.



Here is what it looks like now.  I’m thinking of adding some large poms, either tissue paper poms or poms made of yarn.  It’s hard to see the depth of the garland in this picture, but it looks really cool.

Here are the sheets I bought the girls.  I used a gift card for Williams Sonoma that was supposed to be just for me.  I guess it’s a mom thing to do to spend the money on the girls.  I can’t help it.

What do you think? I still need to get curtains and an actual bed to put the mattress on.  Any suggestions or thoughts would be totally appreciated!!
