18 DIY Children’s Headboards – FDTR #152

From Dream To Reality

18 DIY Children’s Headboards ~ A couple of years ago we built Emanuelle a bed, yes even the bed frame! We used old wood shutters to create her headboard. She’s still loving her bed and I must say that I smile each time I see it, I’m very proud that we built it. As a lot of you know, we have promised to tackle Gabrielle’s bedroom soon. It’s going to be a BIG job. We are planning on gutting the entire room so that we can re-insulate it and we also have two windows to replace. She keeps talking about her … {continue reading}

Christmas break starts in 10 days!! YAY!! I can’t wait to have my kids home with me for two full weeks! Are you taking extra days off during the Holidays? What are you looking forward to the most? I must say my favorite part is staying up late with the kids and Sébastien all cuddled up on the couch watching Christmas movies. Bliss! The girls have been asking to feed Santa’s Reindeer for the last couple of years. As you know it’s quite hard to do if Santa parks his sleigh on the roof. I solved that problem by making … {continue reading}

However, it’s not a crazy shopping day that I hear it can be in the US. If you’re into the whole Black Friday thing, did you see the AMAZING … {continue reading}

Happy Halloween

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start! If you follow me on Facebook, you might have seen a status update last week sharing that I will be going in to the hospital tomorrow for a surgery. Nothing to really worry about (I hope), but I will be 4-8 weeks without forcing, pushing, lifting, etc… Should be very pleasant (not!)! So, if you could please think of me tomorrow… I’d appreciate it! :) Since I will be recovering from my surgery, I won’t be able to go trick-or-treating with my girls this year. :( I LOVE trick-or-treating with … {continue reading}

How have you been? Did you have a nice weekend? I had a great weekend! I didn’t get around to decorate for Halloween though, OUPS! I’ll probably pull out our box of Halloween decorations on Thursday.
