mr. cal's room

At one point, we were thinking that we'd just stick Calvin's little pack n' play (his little crib situation) in the "office" and then rethink things later. Well, after a lot of thought, we decided to switch up the house a little bit to make a "proper" room for the boy.


Well, when you have random yards of fabric that you didn't know about (honestly, I have so many craft/fabric items that are unaccounted for. unhealthy? maybe.) + and a talented mom = fun curtains. We decided to go with a "cowboy" type room. After all, we DO live in Texas. And, we NOW have a boy. Well, heck yeah.


So, here are some pictures from his room. Yes, I still have one whole wall dedicated to my paper delights and craft bins (sorry kiddo, I can only spare a PORTION of the room, not all of it). But, you've seen pictures of that part before. So, here's the part no one has really seen. Well, besides me, Aaron, Tillie, my mom, and Aaron's parents. Oh, and Calvin, of course. But, he's too little to even care.
Take special note of the little boy with glasses on the horse. do you LOVE that? Me too. For the life of me, I can not find the artist. In high school, I requested an information packet from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. And, this was on the cover. I loved it as a sophomore in high school... I love it even more now. So, if anyone knows WHO the artist is, hollah at me.

My mom found this great book at an antique store in Austin. I love SO many of the pages. I'd like to think the two kids in these pictures are a future Calvin and Matilda. With their friend's horse. I don't think I ever want to have a horse, b/c frankly, farm animals smell. Pretty animals, but they don't smell lovely.

So, there you have it. There's his room.

p.s. we got the globe over Christmas in Austin as well. Same antique store my mom found the book in. SCORE. Both Aaron and I are in L-O-V-E with that globe. I think we need to start a globe collection. Who's with me?

Cute cowboy stuff! That means you ALWAYS need to stay in TX so he can become a cowboy. Well...as long as I am here anyways! In HS I LOVED cowboys. My licence plate frame said Wrangler Butts Drive Me Nuts. Ha...true story. Too bad there are not really any cowboys in San Antonio.

Aaron and I love globes as well, and I love what you did. The pictures are very cool.

Shut the front door. Using book pages for wall art is shear GENIUS. I wish I had an ounce of the Snyder craft/deco skills.

So I needed to say something about Aaron's art project: Max Screamed with glee when he saw uncle Aaron coloring rocket ship, he was really excited to see that, and of course he loves looking at Calvin and Tillie.

Klinton and I LOVED the color wonder as well, only (and this may have already happened) don't get to attached to your wonderful coloring, the colors bleed and everything gets smudged (I was sad when this happened to my art.) Can you tell we are brother and sister :)
