big changes

I'm not one to embrace change. I know this about myself, and I'm ok with it. I look at people (like Soulemama) who rearrange their furniture on a regular basis and wonder how they don't bump into things in the night. I like my things where they are, thank you very much. It's likely to take me 6 months or more to even update the pictures on our "everything wall". Needless to say, we've been in this house for 5 years, and there are dents in the carpet from the furniture that has never been moved.

Alas, about 3 years ago we had a baby boy and now that baby is a preschooler who really should be in a big boy bed by now, so we will be making up for our lack of moving furniture by moving plenty of furniture and swapping kids' rooms around this weekend. Big changes. I think I'm ready.


In honor of Finn's new move to the big boy bed, I'm making him a little something special out of this super cute Japanese-import fabric from Superbuzzy. You'll have to tune back in to see how it goes!




And from Finn:

"Look, Mommy! My guys are holding hands...cause they're friends."

  1. Oh, change is GOOD. And I can't believe you've been able to keep him in a crib this long! Grady spent some time in JH's crib today for fun, but he started banging into the bars like a circus animal and yelling about "yampires"-- wonder where he heard that one?

  3. Oh yay! Can't wait to see what you make! Kaulini hasn't slept in her big girl bed since we moved but I am hoping that painting her room and making her a new flannel duvet and pillowcase will help her want to go back to her bed and room *fingers crossed*

  4. We make a good yin yang. I am addicted to change (hence the vagabond lifestyle)
    I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

    Warm wishes,

  7. Oh yes, these are going to be some big changes! :) I like change, though...just not too much all at once.

  8. Oh I can not wait to see what you make from this. Love the colors and the prints. I am like you, I don't move furniture or change things up much. I like my home just the way it is, and it is part of my comfort zone.

  13. That is exciting! We rearranged our girl's rooms just after Christmas and we loved the way it turned out. I, however, love change and am always moving things around. Good luck, I am sure everyone will love the new change!

  14. change is something I'm slow to come to terms with as well. It's always a struggle for me to move on, mix things, up etc. etc. Having a toddler has relaxed that part of me a bit, but I still struggle with it. So exciting about the big boy bed. :)

  15. LOVE that fabric! I can't wait to see it finished either! Good luck with the room changes this weekend! Yay for the big boy bed!

    Our dining room/play space seems to change every 3 months or so, I am one of those who gets restless looking at some things the same way ALL the time. My poor husband just painted the boys room last year and I've been thinking a different color may be better... I wish I were less flighty and more steadfast like you :D
