My Inspiration Monday - Superhero Bedroom Ideas for Girls

We moved out of our house recently for EQC repairs and our house is not only undergoing repairs but a makeover at the same time.  Lily will be moving into a bigger room and would like a superhero bedroom (superhero's are pretty big in our house and have been for a while, she dresses up switching from Superman to Spiderman to Batman and the odd Ninja Turtle at times.  Sometimes the odd pair of Fairy Wings and a Party Dress make an appearance too but it's rare!)

So anyway I've had a look around for a few ideas and it's really hard to find Superhero Bedroom ideas for girls!  Don't they know girls love Superheros too?

However I've found a few ideas to get me started, and so far I'm loving a City Skyline Headboard, Word Bunting to spell out important messages for Superheroes, Animal Hook Shelf with Superhero Mask detail (a clever KMart hack) and a print/wall decal - Bat Kids is pretty cute!

  1. Bat Storage Bag from My Little LoveBird
  2. Word Banner from Van Mariel or  Cotton On Kids
  3. Bat Shelf from Decor Handled
  4. Bat Kids Print from Little Pop Studios
  5. Animal Hook Shelf (KMart Hack idea) from Our Urban Box
  6. Skyline Decal found on Pinterest
  7. Super Hero Flag from  The Lovely Wall
  8. House Decal idea (might make this a city skyline) from 100 Percent Heart
  9. Na Na Batman Print from Little Laneway

My Inspiration Monday - Buttoflies

In this week's My Inspiration Monday, we meet Kathryn from Buttoflies who is also addicted to Red Polka Dots as much as I am - just check out her Cath Kidston sneakers if you don't believe me!

How did your business come about?  

Buttoflies came about as a result of me needing to have an activity to focus on to take my mind off health issues.  It worked wonders!


Where did the name come from? 

As with most great ideas, the name came to me while lying in bed!  Obviously I make buttons, and my daughter loves butterflies, so just combined the two.


What do you love about what you do?  

I love sourcing fabrics that I think may be popular and when it comes time to make them up for the first time, the excitement of the finished product is still with me.  I love seeing people wearing my goodies.  And I love seeing the excitement on kids faces when they see some clips made out of their favourite theme or colour.


Where do you find time to craft?

 I craft in the evenings instead of watching TV, or while my 2 kids are at school.


What’s next for you? 

To continue making buttons, buttons and more buttons!
