Yeah the little girls headboards are finally finished! I'm falling in love with upholstery it's very rewarding. Even though all my fingers are either burned, or calloused I'd do it again. John's been in New York so I did this one all by my self. First I measured the beds, bought cheap ply board at Home-Depot, then 3 inch foam from Joann's, fabric, on clearance, batting, upholstery button kit, upholstery string, an upholstery needle, staples for my staple gun, and I was good to go!
Each bed needed 21 buttons,
Now cutting the foam out is tricky, last time we used pipe, this time I used a knife. Where each hole is next you drill out a hole for the buttons to go through.
Time to get a workout in, I've been truly shocked at how fast my day's fly. I'm pleading with God to slow it down, I want to enjoy each day. Once I start a project, I feel a little guilty, like I don't give my all to the kids, so last night I had the kids come into the garage and talk to me, play, laugh. I felt less guilty. Then I cuddled with little girls in my bed read them stories till they fell asleep. Tucked Little John in by reading out of Psalms. Then kissed, hugged Sage goodnight while she was doing homework. Listening to a radio program while driving for the 9th time Tuesday, I heard someone state, parents, spend your time wisely while your children are in your home, before you know it they will be off, living their own life, and you'll never get that time back! This really convicted me, I decided to really limit my time on my phone, projects, reading, I need to invest into my children, listen to them, teach them, and most of all let them know I am here for them, no matter what. I'll drop anything, anytime, when they need me. May the God of Love be with you today, Shirley
