First Craft and Girls Room

I have been seeing these cute little Family frames all over blogland and loved them so I thought I would give it a try. I went to Joanns and got the Family magnet for it and saw they had a Princess one too so I decided to do one for the girls room also. So here they are. They're cute for my first craft ever really. What do you think?

So I put the princess one on Ireland's side since Ansley has a few things hung on her side. This is their room. It's pretty much done. I just want to get some tulle for Ansley's bed at the top to drape maybe, some curtains (maybe I'll try a Nester Mistreatment), and a rug. I want one more thing over Ireland's changing table also. Maybe a b/w photo of her and Ansley or all three kids or a shelf with hooks to hang one of each girls baby outfits on.

Walking into the girls room. See those two baskets on each side of the girls room. Do you think I should spray paint Ansleys white?

Ireland's side of the room. See what I mean about needing something over the changing table.

This frame is from Ansleys First Birthday. The top photo is her at a year and the bottom is her Birthday invitation with several pictures of her over that first year and then each guest signed the matte and then I framed it. It hangs over her dresser and is one of my favorite things in her room.

Ansleys side of the room. Her "Princess" bed that my in-laws brought back from up north and her dresser.

Thanks for your sweet comment!

I love your kids names. A three month, it seems like my son Zach was just there.

Very cute picture frames! Where did you get your daughter's iron bed!? It's wonderful.

I love those family signs...I made one too. Also, your girls room is precious. Love that bed.

Thanks for a leaving a comment on my blog.
I love your kids names, too.
The girls room is very cute. I would spray the other basket white, or maybe both pink?
You asked if I sold my art, and I do. My website has a shop that I update every other day:
and my etsy shop is:
God bless you, you have a very sweet family:)

Hey! I just found your blog--love those signs. I have seen them too, but haven't made them. Because we don't have Joann. Isn't that sad? :-)

What a beautiful family and frames!! I have a 3 year old and newborn too so I'm with you and the sleep friend! I love decorating and I agree with painting the other basket white too. And I think you are right on with something over the changing table. I have a white shelf and a large white frame with a b/w picture of Jonah when he was born. I also love it because I put a couple bowls on it filled with things I use like q-tips, creams and pacifiers. I think it would look great in the girls room and would balance that side well. If you want I can send you a picture! Best of luck and great job on your first craft!
