    I have been on the lookout for ideas on how to decorate a children’s bedroom for my niece.  Her mum, my sister is planning to move my 3-year old niece into her own bedroom and she has asked me for some ideas on how to make the room pretty and comfortable.  So while the spouse was busy checking out rod ends for his garage project, I was surfing the internet and came across this cute fun folk-art clothesline for the wall from  All you need is to sketch the image onto the wall and then paint over it.  Then screw the knobs into place for the little one to hang his/her clothes.  Pretty neat eh?   I am sure my little niece would love it.

    October 18, 2012 by barbara

    Halloween is less than 2 weeks away.  My daughter has been asking that I buy her a Halloween plastic bucket for trick-o-treating.  As there will be no trick-o-treating over here, I think it is not a good idea to buy it.  Therefore I have decided to make one for her.   I logged on to Pinterest last night to find some ideas and chanced upon a few really nice and easy Halloween crafts for children.

    I am going to try to do a couple of crafts with my daughter soon.  Hopefully she would forget about asking me to buy/make her a plastic pumpkin basket.

     I am so into banners or buntings right now.  They are so beautiful and add a nice touch to a room.  When I saw these banners and hanging decor for the children’s room at Land of Nod, I was ecstatic.  Oh be still my beating heart .  I just adore these cute decors.  They are also great for parties if you do not want to hang them in the bedroom.  I am trying to choose one for my daughter’s room.

    While the spouse was busy checking out the Delafield petroleum drop hose specification, I was doing some online shopping for my craft.   I stumbled upon this, an online store which offers a wide range of printed adhesive tapes which gives the illusion that your boxes are sealed with leather straps, bolts and hinges.    I find this pretty neat and I think I am going to get some.  You all know how much I love tapes eh?
