Scribbling on walls?

Growing up we were taught not to write on the walls BUT our Mom did let us decorate our own rooms. I can remember once my sister painted rainbows on her walls. I thought she was just so cool.

Madison's room has definitely been a work in progress. This is what I started on Friday. Just a block letter M. I had to stop because I caught a nasty cold and was put to bed. For days I stayed in bed just dreaming up ideas.

Well my fever was a bit better yesterday and I had to get out of that bed so I started to paint.

And paint I did!

Those ideas were no longer just stuck in my head.

I just painted straight past lunch...

and couldn't stop!

Why stop when the gettin's good ,right?

It's just how I imagined in my dreams

When Madison came home from school you should have seen her eyes...

That's all I needed...her smile said it all!
{If I know you girls like I think I know you girls you are wanting to know all the secrets...right? Well If y'all do I will share and if you are just ready to move on that's OK too...you let me know~

  13. You can tell the secret, of course I want to know! But, what would be even better is if you'd just come to my house and do one on my wall. Chicago is quite exciting at this time of the year, you just never know what the weather will be doing.

  85. Very pretty and impressive! I used an overhead projector and drew a bridge graphic in our church office reception area (Bridge is part of our church name)but I still need to fill it in...I guess I'm a little scared that I will mess it up. You are an inspiration to get it done!
