New Shoes and A New Bed!

Scarlett and I went shopping Thursday while Savannah was in school. We were in Marshall's when I spotted just what I've been looking for...Robeez sandals for Scarlett! I tried them on her, and she agreed they were fabulous. She insisted on wearing them as soon as we'd bought them, and she showed them to everyone we met at our next stop - Target.

The toddler bed is practically finished. All I have left to do is attach the guardrails to the sides. We moved it into her room so she can get used to it...I'll probably let her take her daytime naps in it just for practice.

I can't believe I actually made this. From picking out the boards, cutting them, nailing them together, painting - just me! I'll post more pics when I get the guardrails on, and I'll give info about the materials in case you guys want to make one of your own.

Girl, you amaze me! This is fantastic and I know Scarlett is going to love it. Glad you found the sandals too. I take it they're not easy to find.

I told Debbie I ought to find a pattern for a sideboard like I've been wanting and commission you to make it for me. I'm in awe of your talent. I really shouldn't be surprised; you got your tenacity honestly. Your Mom can do anything she puts her mind to as well.

Great job!

Thanks everyone! I'm very proud of myself. The bed was the easy part...painting was a pain!
