The New and Improved Cilla Suite

I know my little lady is rapidly approaching the age for a big girl bed, but we do not have any reason to rush her out of her crib so- I'M NOT!  I am just not ready to move her and frankly, I do not think she can handle it.  She sleeps great in her crib.  She is confined.  And those two reasons alone are enough to let it be right now.   
Since we moved back to Arkansas, there has been nothing on Cilla's wall above her crib.  Recently, my friend, Kelli, showed me an idea that she pinned on Pinterest and I knew I had to do it in Cilla's room.  Which by the way, was the last straw for my signing up on Pinterest!
So....here it is.  I think it turned out super cute and it made for some great conversation as I explained to Flint about embroidery rings!!!
I painted wooden letters, put hangers on the backs of each of them and hung them.  Then I filled different sized embroidery rings with fabrics from Cilla's room and a couple of other coordinating fabrics.  Voila!  A project that was done in under one nap time!  That is way I like them!

Such a cute idea and I am right there with ya about leaving them in the crib for as long as possible! I don't know why people rush to get their kids into a big kid bed, they have the rest of their life for that!

That turned out so cute! I held off on Pinterest for a while too, but finally gave in. There's too much cute stuff.

I am also on board with keeping kids in the crib as long as possible. :)
