My nephew just turned two and is completely in love with tractors. I was walking through the fabric section of Hobby Lobby when this fabric caught my eye. I fell in love with it and knew that it was perfect for him. So I got 5 yards of both the top and bottom and pieced it together into a twin sized blanket. Once it was together I tied it in navy yarn. I just mailed it to him and I hope he likes it

Since my son doesn't have a father to give anything to we did a gift for my father who has played a huge role in my sons life since my husband death. My dad gets called Papa by all the grandkids so I pulled photos from times when my son and he were together and photo shopped the letters over the top. I found the frame at Target for a good price and I love the way the whole gift turned out. We also gave him a Willow Tree statue of a grandfather and grandchild (The grandchild looked about my sons age right now so it was perfect) My son was super excited to give it to him and my dad loved it.
I mentioned that I was redoing my bedroom. Well I had these frames hanging on my wall. They had lighthouse pictures in them and the frames were blue. I repainted these to match the magnet board and then the tricky part was finding something to go in them. I looked all over for ideas and stumbled on a Pottery Barn picture of a lily and decided that I would take pictures of my tulips when they came up this Spring. So I took some pictures and photo shopped all the stuff I didn't want in them and this is how it turned out:
I have been redoing my bedroom and I repainted a magnet board that I have had for some time. I then needed new magnets to go on it to match everything. So I bought some scrapbooking flowers (They were the only ones I could find in the color I wanted) and magnets and I love the way it turned out. This is the bedding I was matching it to
(The frame used to be blue and red checkers since that is what I had for bedding)
