    Default Playing with vinyl

    Well, I managed to accomplish a couple of the easy things on my list. It was an incentive to get to play with my wall pops.

    Here are the boys' doors, nothing fancy.



    Here are the stars I did for Alex's room.


    Here's something that I am still messing with. I started this a couple of days ago. I am planning on using it as a light for when I'm breastfeeding. I'm not happy with the christmas lights I have in it so I am looking for another light source.



    TFL!

    Wow, it all looks great. I absolutely love the stars on the wall, they go so well with the theme.

    Wow you should sell the blocks I bet there is a market for them. As for a the inside light I think rope lights would be brighter and fill the block well.

    The font is Alphalicious. It is my fave.

    Yes, the nursery theme is Nautica sailboats. I fell in love with the stupid thing before I even knew I was having a boy. I'm glad I'm having another boy because I could not for the life of me find a girl theme I liked.

    As far as the blocks go, yes some people do sell them. I am no where near as good as the ladies that do. I just wanted to make some for my boys. I am going to make one for T.J. as soon as I can find brown vinyl.

    Personally, I really enjoy making things for my kids room. I try very hard to not let things become too commercial because that can be expensive. I tried to pick fairly neutral themes that I can accessorize on my own. I made the nursery based on the border. (I received the rest as a gift even though I had not registered for it.) T.J.'s room is being based off a sheet set I found at Target. It's monkeys with a few elephants thrown in because he loves them. I'm having the hardest time finding an inexpensive kid's table for his room because they are all covered with licensed characters.

    First, I try to avoid licensed characters on everything too because I feel my kids aren't walking advertisements. That said, disney princesses, spiderman, wall-e and dora have entered our domain in forms other then the movie. sigh

    Secondly, I love the work you've done. Very cute. Question on the glass block- what does the hole for the lights look like? My grandma used to do ceramics and she'd use night light lights with a switch. I can take a picture of one tomorrow.... they clip into the ceramic but there are different stands that work with night light lights.

    The hole in the bottom of the cube is about 1 inch wide and 3 inches long. I need something kind of bright because I found a nightlite plugged into an outlet doesn't give me enough light. I'm hoping that since it will be on the table, a nightlite would work. Can't be too bright because I don't want it to interfere with the new baby's sleep. (If I'm lucky enough to get a sleeping baby. )
