Personalizing the House

I don't know what it is about kids having their name on things, but there's just something about it they love.

Maybe with mine it's because they never really had things that were completely theirs.  Or that no one had their name put on things.  Either way, they love personalized anything.  I mean they love it.  Really.  Like a lot.


So this year as I was planning our school year, I came across these boxes at Michaels for 70% off...




I love a good deal.  I bought 8 of them.


They just weren't our style though.  So I broke out the navy spray paint and ended up with these...




Then I added some washi tape.  Because everything is better with washi tape.




Something was missing.  Something the girls were going to love.  I ordered their names in vinyl from here.  And once they were on we spent four hours just staring at them.




One big happy family...




I love seeing their name on things around the house.  It serves as another reminder that they belong.  That they are here for good.  That this house is theirs.  Because it is.
