  {Tackle it Tuesday}

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

So I know its a little late, but I thought I would finally post my Tackle it Tuesday! lol

My goal this week was to finish decorating Lagan's room!.And I finally did it with some help from the blogging world.
I will show total "After" photos as soon as she cleans up and I get some time to do it! lol But in the mean time, I wanted to share the last two projects that I did.

First is this Name banner. (and I finally hung the curtains I made like 7 months ago! lol) This is just a paper banner, but I love it to death, and Lagan helped me cut out the letters and punch the holes. She even chose which paper should go for which letter.

I got a tutorial on how to do it over at Mrs.B's blog. Click HERE to check it out.
It was soooo easy to do! Make sure you go give her some comment love!

The next project is something I have wanted to take on for quite some time now, the famous Ragamuffins. When Darlene posted a tutorial HERE, I ran out, got some fabric, and made one for Lagan in about 2 hours while watching TV. SOO easy, but so cute! I hung this one on Lay's bed. She love it, I love it! I think it rocks! Oh, and run over and give Darlene some comment love too!!!

So thank you blogger ladies for giving me the inspiration to finish Lagan's room! I cant wait to move on to another room now! :)
See you for the weigh in tomorrow! :)

I think I might want to tackle the ragamuffin garland sometime too. I see a Halloween inspired one on my porch! I think one would be really cute in our nursery, not too girlish is it?

Thank you for your prayers. I am feeling a bit better even though this flu has been one tough cookie.

Much appreciated,

Lora said...

Very cute!! Great job!

Ooh, I want to do a ragamuffin garland! But I don't have any girls, so I guess I should put my effort into something else...sigh... : )

Mrs. B said...

Hi there! I'm so glad you liked the garland. Yours turned out sooo cute! Great papers. I didn't see your comment letting me know you had done it until today (sometimes my spam filter picks up my comment notifications) because I received a comment from someone else saying they had found me through your post. Thanks for linking to me!

I also love your rag garland! I've been wanting to try one too but haven't yet. Do you know about how much fabric it took?

Astrid said...

Too too cute! I really need to try making a rag garland. It sounds like a project I could actually accomplish! I really love the colors you've chosen for both your name and rag garlands. :)
