Since we moved to Texas, I have been tapping into my creative side a lot more. I have been decorating our new house on a budget and I have been trying to make as much as possible to save money. Jeff has been going a little crazy with all of my projects because it is hard for me to only work on one thing at a time, so I often have several projects sitting around the house. I know this may be boring for some of you but, here are some pictures of what I am working on. When I get the house put together, I will take pictures of the finished rooms.
I searched and searched for toddler bedding that I liked and didn't really find anything to go with my theme for Selina's room, so I decided to make her comforter myself. Next to the comforter is the cute owl rug that is also for her room.

Also for Selina's room. I saw a painting similar to this on potterybarnkids.com but it costs almost $200, so I decided to make my own version of the painting.
I have wanted a round pedestal table for a while now, and we lucked out big time when we found this sitting on the side of the road 2 houses down from us with a "free" sign on it. I had to beg Jeff to take it home, and he finally agreed. The finish on it is not good, so I am sanding and painting it.

Selina's new haircut. Selina's hair was crazy all of the time, it didn't matter how often I brushed it, she constantly had snarls. So I decided to cut it myself.
