I totally admit it! I am a HUGE copy cat! Here are a few of “theirs and mine” pics! I am terrible about giving credit to the “theirs” pics. I never can remember where I got them from! I promise to do better at that!

Here are a few of my Halloween embroidery files. All of them except the skeleton are appliqués. That means that where you see the background there would be fabric. You can choose the thread colors! Appliqués with a name or word or two are $8.

We are in the process of turning my 2 year old son’s room into a big boy room. I started with the canvas on the back of vinyl flooring. Notice in the final picture how much of Bessie, the cow, I lost due to my terrible measuring!
I had found this picture of a bed and wanted to copy it! I can’t remember which blog I got this picture from!
One day last month I went to my husband’s work to have lunch with him. As I was walking to my car I noticed their LARGE trash pile. It was calling my name!! My poor husband! I may not be invited to lunch again! I found this large pallet and asked him to bring it home. To my surprise he did!
First Scott (and Nicholas) reinforced each board with a screw.
I found these 4 inch casters at Harbor Freight for $3.99 each. I needed 6. I was able to use Sodderbug $$$ to purchase them so that makes me happy that it didn’t come out of our household budget!
Nicholas handed me the screws and I screwed them on!
We carried it into Nicholas’s room and this is what we had.
I had not measured it and thought I would not mind if it was a little larger than the mattress but it took up way too much space in him room. So… we took it back out to the garage and completely undid everything we had just done. We cut 10 inches off the width and the last 3 slats. Then put it all back together. I think it was totally worth it! Nicholas is sound asleep in his new bed!
He loves that Bessie is right next to his head!
I might turn the bed tomorrow so that it is on the right wall and not covering up so much of the canvas. A funny note about the comforter… it is from my college days! Inside of the comforter is my older comforter from middle school age. My mom had taken two sheets and sewed them together and put my old comforter inside. So it is 21 years old!
Just a reminder, my blog has a new place but I am double posting until I get you all over there! Here is the new location: http://www.sodderbug.com/blog/

We are in a rental house right now so I soooo don’t want to spend much money on window treatments! The burlap is $2.99 at Hobby Lobby and I used my 40% off coupon so it was $1.80 per yard. I splurged and bought 12 yards! I made curtains for my living room and craft room and still have a lot left over to do more with!!! I used this tutorial to make them and it really was super easy! Life to the "T" tutorial
I forgot to take a before pic so I am posting a few random pics!
My son, Nicholas.
My daughter, Reese and my son, Nicholas.
Don’t know who this is behind the mustache! Pics next week of this project!

I saw these somewhere in blogland but can’t remember where! If it was you… I am so sorry for forgetting! Let me know and I will give you credit!
I HAD to copy them! Here is my first attempt at it. I got a little mouse (the name of my little sander) happy! Next time I won’t sand so much and I will sand BEFORE I layer on the Mod Podge!
And (a very blurry) Me!
