sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things


The two older girls are thinking about what they want to do with their room. The my oldest was here, the three of them could never come to an agreement as to how they wanted i to look, so it stayed white and plain. But the two that are left are putting their heads together and coming up with ideas about paint and wallpaper and decorations. We;llbe doing the work ourselves, and I am sure we’ll have lots of fun. No seriously. It will be fun. Quit laughing.

I found a site with some good DIY projects, and it’s really not hard to do. this page even tells you how to paint a ceiling. I’ve thought about some kind of mural in there that goes on up and onto the ceiling. Of course, they may prefer more solid walls and wallpaper borders, instead. The last time I used wallpaper border, it went up easy enough, but it did not stay on the walls. I fought with it forever before I ripped it down in frustration. Here’s my little DIY tip: don’t try to use self-adhesive wallpaper in a bathroom. It’s way too humid in there for that. Use the glue stuff.

I’ll let you know what they decide. When they decide, of course. It seems like every time we start discussing it, we get interrupted by a sibling, or it’s time to go somewhere. I oughta just pile them in the van, and go shopping. We can stop on the way for a bite to eat and hash out the plans then.
