Dress up your light swtiches

I totally spaced on my post yesterday.  I slept until 9am when I finally rolled out of bed.  Sounds awesome, right?  Not so much.  It seems I have caught the first cold of the school year from my girls.  It was sleep I desperately needed, I promise.  To pay the girls back for sharing with me, I had a little fun with them.



I used my Silhouette to cut out removable vinyl pieces in the shape of eyes and a mouth and applied them to the girls light switch for their closet.  I then let them find it on their own.

Here is the one in the Princess' room.


And here is Boo's room.


I know this shot is a little blurry, but I have a good reason.  This morning my power went out for a while.  I decided to take pictures in the dark and used my flash.  I didn't know this was blurry until  I loaded it onto the computer a little while ago and I'm too lazy I still can't walk well enough to go back and take another.

They absolutely loved them as much as they liked the toilet monster.  I can't wait to surprise them with more in the future.  I can't take credit for this idea, I got it from a group I'm in from a lovely woman named Alison who was planning to surprise a family member with something similar.

How have you surprised your kids lately?

  4. Ha, ha, ha. Just too cute. I would love to do this and see how long it would take the boys to notice. Plus, I can tell the middle guy that we can see whether he stays in bed or not. No more need to sneak up the stairs when we hear him playing instead of sleeping.

  5. Aaaahh! So stinking cute. My kids love little details like that...and to surprise them with something like this, well, they would just be beyond. Love this. Annnnd I'm sorry you lost power today. That's a pain. But kinda fun, too, in a strange pretend-I-lived-in-the-1800s-but-get-annoyed-after-10-minutes-of-nonelectrical-life way. Someone should enter that emotion into Wikipedia. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
