Zach has been wanting to paint his room green for the last 6 months or so. I finally told him that durring Christmas break, we would re-do his room. He has picked out his fabric and told me exactly how he wanted his room. And the walls HAD to be Green, his favorite color. He did a great job choosing the shade of green. I love it!
He also told me that in his room he wanted trees. We looked at vinyl trees and the ones he wanted were almost $100. So I told him that I could paint the trees, he insisted on birch trees, with owls and birds, and bird nests. So I got to work!
I have one more ting to make for his room, I will post it tomorrow!!
Stay tuned this week, I also am re-doing my laundry room!!! I love Christmas break!!

As much as I love to sew, I am horrible at making any type of clothing, nothing ever fits right and I have a terrible time trying to alter the pattern. But when I saw this darling Riley Blake fabric out at my favorite fabric store, Hannah Johnson's. I knew I had to attempt flannel pants for me and the little boys.
I had a pattern in my Amy butler "in stitches" book for me, and I bought a Kwik sew pattern for the boys.
I must say, it wasn't too bad, and they all fit!!
I had to get this darling holiday print for me and Zach and the cute little dinosaurs for Nicholas.
They are very comfy, and I think the boys may live in them all week long!!
Now here is a sneak peak at my Christmas break project. We are painting and redecorating Zachs room and he picked out the fabric below for his bedding and curtains, the kid has good taste, it too is by Riley Blake, and fits the theme of his new room. Here is the front of the comforter I am making. This part is done, now to add the batting and back!
More to come on this room re-do in the next week or so!!
Now it's time to cozy up in my new flannel pants and watch TV!!
