A Gift Without A Bow...

November is fast approaching and that would mean December is nearing...

December would mean the end of the year and the beginning of 2011...
December would also be the month to celebrate Ryan's first birthday...

I promise myself that I would not go "crazy" since he'll be to young to remember. I'm just planning a small gathering between family members and close family friends. Some cakes and balloons and party packs for his kindy friends and we'll be all set :)

Anyway, I'm planning on an early birthday gift for Ryan. I'm planning to start decorating his room. Yes darling you'll have your own room to store your clothes and toys and a place for you to play in :) Finally, huh? Technically it is not much of a present since that room was always intended for his use. However, think off all the effort that mummy and daddy is going to put in decorating you room... Our love and dedication sure beats that new model of monster truck *haha* You're one lucky boy *alhamdullilah*

Like most part of the house, the paintings and shelving etc will be DIY :) To those people who assume that I'll be putting Lan for all the "hard job", please-lah you're looking at one independent lady who painted her whole room and 1/3 of her parent's house ALONE!!! I have no qualms with doing messy stuff but if other people choose to do it for me, by all means they are welcome to do so ;p

Anyway back to Ryan's room, I'm looking at various designs ideas and trying to put together a simple no fuss concept. Someone suggested an Elmo theme room, with Elmo murals and red and white walls. It's a great idea but I rather go for a not so obvious theme. Thinkerbout it in a few months time his interest might change and I might end up with an Elmo/Transformers/Ben10 walls in 5 years time. Not a pretty sight, right?

A collection of some of my favourite design...

Under the sea concept

Love the idea of putting Ryan's initial on the wall but it will be a bit tricky if his siblings is planning to share the room later on :p Well can always keep on adding initials...

My favourite design...

Clean and simple
Another lovely design...
What do you think???

Where did you find the Under the Sea theme? I know this was a year ago but I love it and haven't seen this particular one anywhere!
