Celebrating Toy Story 3 Movie Release with Kids Decal Sale!

"Toy Story 3 has entertained children and parents alike (and has made at least one childless, unmarried adult male in his thirties cry) to the tune of $110 million dollars in its opening weekend," according to Yahoo Movie Talk.

Even if you've never seen Toy Story 3, I can't imagine that you could be living in the United States and at least not have heard of it. It's been a HUGE success with many endearing characters over the years!

The movie release is in a few short days... NOVEMBER 2, 2010!

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the post, I thought it would be fun to play "Did You Know?" in regards to fun facts and "Easter Eggs" of the movie.

1. Did you know that "there are 302 characters in the film?"
2. Did you know "Ken wears 21 different outfits in the movie?"
3. Did you know "Woody has 229 animation points" in his face alone?
4. A few "Easter Egg" finds for you to hunt for when you watch the movie next time
             * "A113," the number of a classroom at CalTech where many Pixar animators studied, shows up as   an Easter egg in every Pixar film. In the "Toy Story" series, it's the license plate on Andy's mother's car. 
             * Sid, the bully from the first movie who wears a skull T-shirt, appears as a garbage man in the new film wearing the same skull T-shirt. 
             * There's a postcard on Andy's dresser addressed from the featured characters from last year's "Up," Carl and Ellie Fredrickson.
             * A significant amount of the film takes place at a daycare center. At the daycare center, Mr. Ray the Scientific Stingray from "Finding Nemo" makes a cameo. Nemo himself appears as a sticker on Andy's toybox.
             * Buzz Lightyear's batteries are from "Buy 'N' Large," the giant corporation responsible for ruining the planet in "WALL-E."

In celebration of these friendly and funny characters that so many children love...

New XL Wallpaper Decals At Kids Decal Corner!

Transform your child's bedroom, play room or school room in minutes and with little effort when you use... 

pooh and friends wallpaper decals
Large murals are an ever growing trend in decorating... just watch HGTV or Ultimate Home Makeover Sunday nights and you'll see what I'm talking about. Murals transform a room like nothing else!
There are a few ways to get an impressive mural on your wall. You could pay hundreds to thousands of dollars for a professional, hand painted mural, you could paint one yourself - which is very time consuming and not all of us are artistically talented. Or, you could use a vinyl coated XL wallpaper mural - which is both time saving and affordable!

The XL Wallpaper Decals/Murals that we sell at Kids Decal Corner, are made by Roommates. They are  chair-rail size and measure 6 feet high by 10.5 feet wide! Unlike our peel and stick kids decals, these murals are not peel and stick or reusable, but they are easily applied and just as easily removed.
The murals come in pre-pasted sheets of vinyl coated paper. Simply cut along the dotted lines, to form long strips, place the strips (one at a time) in warm water and apply to the wall, smoothing out the bubbles and ripples with a soft wallpaper brush. That's it! No artistic talent needed, No lengthy project, No costly bill!

You can expect to have your room transformation completed in less than an hour!! How's that for time efficient?!

What is super cool about these murals, is they are made to coordinate with the peel and stick kids decals for a complete room makeover! All of the wallpaper decals you find at Kids Decal Corner, have matching peel and stick decals to apply in the other smaller places of your room. Or you could make your own complimentary art work (Check out this blog post for detailed tutorial on how to do this)!

All our wallpaper decals are sold for $164.95! They do take a bit longer to process and ship... but since your order would be over $75.00... you would get FREE SHIPPING (within the continental US).

Below is an informative video by Roommates, showing the step by step process of applying these fabulous XL Wallpaper decals! When you're ready to transform your kids room, keep us in mind at! We promise, you won't be disappointed!

Kids Decals and Creative Moms!

Hey folks, going short but sweet today :)...

The best part of business for me is seeing the creative ways that customers have used their products. So here are a few pics of what two creative moms did with their kids decals!

First we have Jeannine who turned an ordinary deacon's bench toy chest into a work of art. After painting the bench, she added the Transportation Kids Decals to make her project one step better! And the best thing about these decals, is they can be exchanged for new ones when her son get's tired of the cars and trucks. This mamma is thinking ahead, because she already ordered the Jungle Adventure Kids Decal! for just such a day! I love how Jeannine has demonstrated the versatility of the decals we sell at Kids Decal Corner. When tastefully done, they can turn an ordinary piece of furniture ( or wall, or door, or whatever is smooth and dry) into a unique, one of a kind masterpiece! 

Great job Jeannine... I love the colors you chose for the bench too! I'm sure this will be a big hit with your son!

Second, is Pamela. She is the winner of the Scroll Tree Decal giveaway... and she also did a great job using this decal to creatively put the finishing touches to her daughter's room! The decal totally adds a completed look to the already cute decor! Now what baby isn't going to like waking up to those cute characters every morning?!

This is what Pamela had to say about her decal "This product is fantastic! Great quality and easy to use!!!!!"

Thanks ladies for sharing your pictures and homes with all of us! It's always good to be inspired!

Be inspired.... shop at and happy decorating!!!

Mural Stencils Take A Trip to the Land Down Under...

Last month, as I was rubbing the sleepiness from my eyes, I saw I had an email from a gentleman, Darren Tan, in Australia. I could hardly contain my excitement... not only because this was Kids Decal Corner's first international sale but mostly because of the purpose behind the purchase. I asked Darren if he would share their inspiring story with us; so here it is...

Every year Darren and his co-workers from Lend Lease ( 
Lend Lease is an organization that has been appointed by the Australian government to oversee the design and construction of new educational facilities and refurbishing primary schools in multiple regions of Australia.)
gather together and volunteer their time and and services to "give back" to their community.

This year, Cromehurst School ( ) were the blessed recipients. This school focuses on caring for individuals with  behavioral, mental and physical disabilities.

  "Cromehurst School project was chosen because the focus of the school is on their students and as a special needs school, there is a high priority to prepare students for their next environment while also catering for their individual needs. Due to this, the school does not have the time to beautify their environment themselves." says Darren Tan ( the group leader for Lend Lease's 15th Annual Community Day ).

The school was in need of some maintenance and beautifying. Using the Wild Safari Jungle Mural Stencil kit, Darren and his friends painted the outside brick wall with elephants, giraffes, lions and all kinds of other wild creatures to create a truly fun and inspiring environment for the special students that attend there every day! Here are some pictures of their finished project. Great job, guys!!!

"This is Lend Lease’s 15th consecutive Community Day, and since the initiative began in 1996, employees have volunteered over 450,000 hours worldwide." Now, that's impressive!

I have truly been inspired by Darren and his coworkers to find a way to give back to the community in which I live. I'm currently investigating how Kids Decal Corner can be apart of more wonderful projects like this one!
It's stories like this that make all the hard work of owning my own business while being a stay at home mom worth while. In a small way, I felt like I was apart of Lend Lease's efforts... and thus far it has been the most rewarding sale ever made! 

I would love to hear any feedback from you, my readers, of ideas or stories that you would have of similar ways that Kids Decal Corner could become involved in making the world for kids a more beautiful and inspiring place to be! If you're aware of any schools, day-cares, after school programs, hospitals, etc that are in need of some TLC... I would love to know about them! I'd be excited to see how we could help them out.

And here's a great bid THANK YOU to Darren for giving me the privilege of being apart of this! Blessings to all of you for the way you care for the people in your community!!!  You've inspired me!

When my kids saw the fun decals, they were both oohing and aahing over them :)

Make Halloween Luminaries With Kids Decals!

Halloween Kids Decals

Make these fun and spooky luminaries to light up your night of trick -r-treat!

This past week when I got my Taste of Home Cooking Magazine, I saw they had this cute idea of how to make luminaries with some old glass jars, tissue paper, decoupage glue and ribbon. I adapted it a bit and included some really adorable Halloween Kids Decals.

Here's the simple directions on how I made these (by the way.. it took less than an hour to make 4 luminaries)
1. Gather your supplies:
         glass jars - varying sizes
         tissue paper
         decoupage glue - like Mod Podge (If you don't have any of this, you can use equal parts of Elmer's glue and water to make your own paste )
         paint brush
         Halloween kids decals

2. Using your decoupage paste, cover the jar with a light layer of glue.
Gently press strips of tissue paper onto the glue. It works best to overlap a few layers. Fold the paper over the top edge - making sure it's pasted down... and the bottom. I trimmed up the top edge of paper before I glued it down.
Allow the paper/glue to dry.

 3. Put ribbon or jute around the neck of the jar.

4. Once the jars are dry, place the decals on the them.

5. Place tea lights inside the jars, light, enjoy.

Here's pics of the spooky little luminaries that I made with my kiddos!

Order your Halloween Kids Decals today! This is a great way to make some fun memories with your kids! Even if your budget is tight, this is a super cheap way to add some Halloween spooky to your front porch and put a smile on your kids and all the trick-r-treaters!
The great thing about using decals, is you can peel them off the jars and use them in many different ways for years to come.

I like to give credit where credit is due... so thank you Taste of Home Cooking Magazine for the inspiration. If you want to see the original idea, here's the link.
