CJT: I Need Your Help!

For those just tuning in, CJT = Change Jar Transformation, and you can get the scoop here

Somewhere between New Years Eve, Christmas parties, shopping, church, and taking care of two little girls competing for my attention, I managed to get a few things done for the girls' room this weekend. Just call me...duh duh duh duh - Super Mooom!! (Did you read it like I hear it in my head? Yes? Good!)

Unfortunately, much of what was accomplished/purchased cannot be shown to you just yet. And there is one more thing I'm waiting on which should be arriving this Wednesday. BUT I do have a solidly set in stone goal for the completion of my little undertaking. Exactly one week from today I will be revealing the new palatial palace (that's redundant, by the way... it's like saying a palace-like palace. Did you know that? I didn't. I always thought palatial meant big, haha. Okay, moving on....) that is my daughters' bedroom. At least I'm crossing my fingers that that's what it will turn out to be. :)

So in my desperate attempt to cover up as much blank wall space as possible, I threw together a couple of cute doodads to be strategically placed around the room. These little flourishes remind me of royalty, so they'll grace the princess walls on either side of the girls' canopies. I'm going to be honest here, I love these stinkin' things. I had no idea what I was doing when I sat in front of my Cricut machine the other night, but I knew I had to do something. I found this pattern, added the girls' initials, and used a little bling to add a touch of princess sparkle. Love. Them.

And as if their names aren't going to be plastered around the room enough, I put together another little initial craft to go above an awkward blank window space. I seriously think I have some weird sort of complex when it comes to personalization. You can imagine when I was growing up that it was absolutely impossible for me to find anything with my name on it, especially my name spelled correctly. I felt so deprived when my friends would show up to school with personalized pencils and water bottles and lunch boxes. And now my daughters are paying the price for my lack of name stuff. Sorry, girls!

Also, all of the materials were purchased and gathered this weekend for some lamp makeovers, a mirror project, a bookshelf project, an organization project, AND a wall art project. Whew! And it's all coming 'atcha THIS WEEK. So definitely stay tuned. :)

And now I need your help. LOTS of it. If you don't mind, could you vote on few things for me?

Currently on my daughters' bedroom door Evelyn's name hangs alone to welcome guests inside. Obviously this is going to have to change, as the bedroom is now going to be shared by both girls. But this is actually one place I'd rather not use their names. So I decided that I'm going to make a princess themed sign with a little saying on it. I have a few ideas, but I'd like your input on which to choose. And here are the options:

*Two Princesses Sleep Here
*Throne Room
*Princesses in Training

Alright, now number two. Above the mirror that will hang in the room, I'd like to put one of the following variations of a very popular saying, but I just can't decide which one!

*Who's the fairest....
*Mirror, mirror on the wall....
*...the fairest of them all.

And finally, I have TOTALLY different ideas for one last saying to fill the long wall space above the girls' closet. Which one do you like best?

*Friends. Playmates. Sisters. (With heart designs on either side)
*A dream is a wish your heart makes (With star designs on either side)
*All you need is a little pixie dust (With star designs on either side)
*God's Daughters are REAL Princesses (With flower designs on either side)

Boy do I have one long week ahead of me! I'd love if you helped this sister out by making at least the decision making process a little easier, haha. Then make sure to check back next Monday to see which of the phrases made it into the room! Oh man, I'm going to be done with crafting for a while once this room makeover is finished...just a little while. :)

My vote:

Friends. Playmates. Sisters. is cute, but it doesn't really go with the princess theme so my themed choice is All you need is a little pixie dust.
