This post was promised for Erin @ Savlaged Whimsy! I still haven't finished any new crafts to show off, but it doesn't mean I haven't stayed busy! I have been doing a lot of networking for the blog and trying to learn my way around the blogosphere. I have been working little by little on my latest project but saw some really fun things on Pinterest, one of which I couldn't resist.
In the pin, the creator had strung some Christmas lights under a lofted bed and made a cool hang-out for their kiddos. Well, conveniently, Big K took the lower bunk into her room and J kept the upper bunk in her and Little K's room. Keeping the lofted bed allowed her to have more floor space since she was losing some to the crib.
Anyway, I loved this idea and just had to steal it. You can view the original pin here: Southern Disposition! (check out her blog, she is actually making a really cool pillow mattress, but what I created was the place she PUT the mat.
All I needed was Christmas lights which I conveniently found yesterday at Wal-Mart in the Christmas Clearance! Total cost: $4.

I don't know what they were talking about ... but it was funny! I love when they just sit and chat, their conversations are so random!
Thank goodness for the $300 Papasan chair that we bought to go in the family room that NO ONE would sit on ... the cushion makes a great "hang-out" mat :)
