About Me

I'm the only girl in a house full of boys. I married my eternal companion in 2004 and we have 3 handsome boys. My day revolves around the love and nurture of my family, but when the boys go to bed, I bust out the sewing machine, hot glue or paint!

SUPERHERO Toy Box

I did this project almost a year ago, but I just have to brag a little bit. A long time ago, I picked up an old and broken ikea toy box at a yard sale for $3. It sat in my garage for months while I brainstormed/googled/pinterest-ed ideas on how to restore it. I wanted it to be creative, but not too cheese-y. FINALLY, it came to me - I needed a SUPERHERO box!! Afterall, this box would be used for my boys' dress-up costumes.

Last January, my husband took the twins to Utah for a funeral; while baby Miles stayed home with me (we were both a little sick). First of all, this was the first time to be away from my big boys and I paced the floors the first few days. After a bit of anxiety, I finally realized "wait a second....I have the whole house to myself with only a small baby to take care of....I'm going to PAR-TAY!!!" (And by party, I mean stay in my PJs every day and do crafts!) The toy box was my biggest project of the week and after agonizing hours, I think it turned out pretty darn good! I didn't have a stencil, but I used google images to free-hand the superhero symbols.

Man, you should have seen the twins' faces when they came home and saw the toy box - they were in little boy heaven!!! (And I couldn't be happier to have them home with me.)
