My daughter Ally was the VIK (very important kid) at her school this week and she needed to do an "about me" poster. So I decided I wanted to design something she can keep forever. I wanted it to be very personal too, so I left all the writing for her to do, when it was printed. I didn't want to spend a bunch of money for the printing so I just sized this as a 20x30 and printed it at Costco for $8.00. SWEET!! It really turned out adorable....
Dont mind the blurry phone pics :)

Girl "about me" poster
I also designed one for a little boy.

I thought they turned out so cute, If I do say so myself :)!! I have them both available on my etsy store HERE.
They are fun little keepsake, that you can even frame if you want to.
 Ally loved it so much and she said all of her class was "so interested, they were at my knees staring, while I was talking, they loved it so much Mom!"
I was happy she enjoyed it as much as I did. She will always be my little VIK!

Idea room

I literally have been on pinterest and scrambling at Tjmax, Homegoods, Tai pan, Target, Downeast home and many more in search for decorations for my new home!! EEk They are coming along quick. Stucco is now on and Sheetrock up and mudded. I think they will be painting next week! Although I don't have the MOST recent photos here are some from the other day.

I know you are so excited you can hardly stand it, right? HA HA 
anyways I wanted to share some pinterest ideas with you on what I am imagining for the house.

I'm LOVING the neutral tones with subtle pops of color and rustic accent pieces. SIMPLICITY is what I want to be surrounded by! I am getting so anxious and cant wait start pulling things together to see the finished product is going to look like. My mind wont stop, therefore I have lost a lot of sleep thinking about this dang house. I'm ready for it to be done now! Until then I will still be loosing sleep and spending money I shouldn't for decor. :) I am going on a date with the hubs tonight for ideas on a couch/sectional. Still cant decide what I want to do... We shall see what I fall in love with! :)
Thanks for stopping by, I hope I sparked some ideas!
