Updating a bedroom can be expensive – the bed, the bedding, shelves, storage, and the list goes on and on. When it comes to your child’s room, and all the things they need, it can quickly get really expensive. Recently we updated our oldest son’s bedroom, but kept it simple and on a budget.
Several years back we painted after stripping the wallpaper, but never got around to really decorating or adding more shelves for his collections. I made a short video telling you all about what we did…
The bedding is a new line at Walmart – it’s called Sweet Dreams from 9 by Novogratz, is a fun, functional and eclectic collection. They have created a versatile assortment that inspires mixing and matching pieces to suit your style and fit your budget. Featuring a bold and graphic print, Sweet Dreams is the most versatile bed. It’s perfect for girls and boys from toddlers to teens.
The bed in a bag includes the comforter, standard pillowcases, standard shams, flat sheet, fitted sheet and a throw pillow. Prices range from $89.09 to $110.91 depending on the size. And the comforter is reversible.
On either side of the bed, we put up a shelving unit that we bought at Walmart for under $30 each. They hold all of Andrew’s things nicely and give the feel of a built in bed. Instead of a headboard, we decided to keep the cost down and hang a poster above the bed.
The bedroom turned out great and Andrew loves it! You can see more of the 9 by Novogratz line on Walmart.com

It’s about that time when the Cold and Flu Season will hit. Why not be ready to care for a friend, neighbor or family member with a Gift Basket? Send them some healing with this Get Well Gift Basket.
One of the worst things, in my opinion, is being sick. Almost everyday I hear about a friend that isn’t feeling well, especially during the cold and flu season. So this year, I decided to be ready to help them by delivering a little Gift Basket full of items to help them feel better.
When I was a little girl my Mom would always buy me a new coloring book and crayons when I was sick. The year I had Mono, my sophomore year in High School, I went through several. So over the years I have done that with my boys, although their love for coloring really didn’t match mine. I almost added a coloring book and crayons to this basket, but opted for a great magazine instead.
Putting together a Gift Basket is much easier than you think, it takes minutes, they are affordable and the rewarding feeling lives on forever. I found everything I needed for this Get Well Gift Basket at Walmart they are the one-stop shop, you know?

I have made many, many bows over the years. Last year I shared a video with you on how to make them. But the ones that I make are the kind my Mom showed me from her days as a florist, they have loops and loops of ribbon. The bows that Ann shows you are more of a classic bow that are perfect to add to any wreath or any of your homemade Christmas decoration ideas.

For many, many years I filled baskets with cookies, candy and special treats for family, friends, even teachers for the Holidays. The Spice Mix is not only perfect for the bakers in your life to use in the Gingerbread cookies recipe, but I think it’s perfect on cereal, oatmeal, bread even pancakes. So think outside the box a little when it comes to your gift baskets.
