Jack's Spiderman Room

When we moved into our new house almost two years ago, I had wanted to wait until our first year home inspection before deciding to paint anything. Then the one year home inspection came and went and I felt stumped by what to do with Jack's room. I initially wanted to do a Pixar/Disney themed room, painting different characters all over the wall, but the thought of all of the time devoted to painting each character daunted me and left me feeling overwhelmed. Then one day, about a month ago, it came to me--a Spiderman room! I could possibly paint a simple Spiderman on his wall and do some type of web. Easy peasy lemon squeazy! But then I investigated the idea of ordering a Fathead Spiderman for his wall. I initially was scared by the price, but thought that in the end, it would be worth it. And it sooooo was! I ordered Spiderman bedding for his bed, took the flat sheet that came with the set and sewed it to another flat sheet to make a duvet cover and even ordered a poster size picture of Jack in his Spiderman outfit. After working for a couple of weeks on the web, Terry and I were able to put up the Spiderman last night. I LOVE how it came out! And better yet, Jack loves it!

Just a few random things

  • Jack only wanted one thing for Christmas from Santa--a remote control helicopter. Luckily, Santa brought it for him, along with a lot of other toys.

  • Jack actually likes school enough that he was upset not to be able to go it during winter break. Let's just say that mommy missed school, too, but for selfish reasons.

  • My parents got me a sewing machine for Christmas. I've started my first sewing project--a quilt. So far, it's going well. I'll post pictures when I'm finished.
