Does it get any better than Restless Risa?

I have to say that I am so lucky to have such fabulous blog friends!
I am even more lucky to know Risa through her blog and in real life.
I know that she is one amazing lady!
I also know that you will love her and stalk her blog as much as I do!

Hello everyone!!! This is my first guest post ever. I am a little nervous. Okay, not really, because I am doing it on fabulous Tausha's blog! Tausha and I met at Hobby Lobby. I had seen her on Studio 5, so I knew who she was the second I saw her. I was in Hobby Lobby getting ready to go on Studio 5 for the first time myself, so I introduced myself, and asked her how it was. Can I tell you... she is SO NICE! Anyhow, I am thrilled that she asked me to do this! Thank you Tausha!

A little about myself... I am a wife to a fabulous man, and mother to three kids; Sophie 9, Conrad 7, Rhett 7 months, and one angel, Molly Claire.

This was our last family photo.

This is me with Rhett at a parade this summer. I am trying to get my baby weight off before having another family photo taken. Having Rhett join our family has been the most fun!

My husband and kids are the loves of my life. My blog is basically about what I do for them. Well, I do it for myself as well, being that I find crafting, planning parties and activities, decorating (especially for holidays), cooking and baking, FUN FUN FUN!

So today, I am going to share one of my favorite rooms in my house with you...

My son's


I am so excited about sharing this, because I love the way it turned out! When we moved into our new house, I just brought all the baby stuff (cars and trucks) from his old room with, and hung it in his new room. I got sick of that, and knew it was time for a change. I wanted to pick a theme that would hopefully grow with him.

My awesome girlfriend Kristen painted with me, and did most of the ceiling. Thanks Kristen!

I decided to do Conrad's room in retro robot and spaceship theme. I printed this pic off google images, and went from there...

I picked out the letters at The Wood Connection, and designed the robot and spaceship myself. Lucky for me, my cute neighbor friend works there, and let me do it right on the spot instead of waiting for 2 weeks. We all know how I like to wait for things!!! My friend thought the robot was so cute, that she wanted to start selling them. I haven't been back in to check though :) The shelf is from Robert's Crafts.

His solar system light rotates and lights up. He also has a cd to go with it that talks about the solar system. He loves to listen to it before he goes to bed every night. I got the pictures from Land of Nod, and had them framed locally. I also got the cute robot sheets from Land of Nod.

I made this headboard, and have a pic on the bottom of how it looked before it was finished. It cost a whole $22!!! I am so proud of myself! It was super easy, and Home Depot cut out all the wood. The side tables and lamp are from IKEA.

My super generous and fabulous neighbor cut out the metal for these cute wall decorations. He let me pick whatever design I wanted, and he cut them out. You can find him here if you are interested. I backed the robots with left over glitter paper from the wood letters, and the rocket is two pieces of sheet metal that we gorilla glued together after painting. I just LOVE them! Thanks BJ!

This is the bed before I painted it all the way. This room was not expensive to decorate, but so fun, and the most important part... my son loves it!
