My Favorite Snow Day

I was thinking of what my family will do this winter for snow days... I guess you would need some background to follow this train of thought. My fiance and I own a house in Des Moines and on rainy days we would pull out old paint or other fun things and spend that day working on our project.  Now of course, we are renting in our new city and looking for a new house to call OURS. Unfortunately that wont be this winter and we will really have to start getting creative with these snowy day projects. Heres my most favorite from last year, we got the idea to paint my daughters room then ran with it!

Happy Birthday big sis

Its been a relatively quiet Saturday at the house. I spent a bit of it working on my big sisters birthday pillow. I'm looking for some inspiration in books i have and of course online. I settled with two simple black and white prints and the possibility of a splash of color by embroidering her initials on it. Lily woke up from her nap mid-project and insisted that the pillow was for her. Love it.
