so here’s what we’ve been up to:


i promise, sadie does not wear the same shirt two days in a row, this is from yesterday afternoon, it was just too cute! she totally found my yarn and was unwinding it before i even got around the corner, 10 seconds behind her. she is FAST!

today i re-covered sadie’s lampshade, i’ve been slowly trying to transition from “baby” “nursery” pastels that i originally did her room in, into something a little older. it’s not drastic obviously, but i like it. more on that another day.

anyways, here’s her new shade. so cute, huh? i used this tutorial, only i used a glue gun for the whole thing, cause i didn’t have any spray adhesive, and my trusty glue gun has never let me down. oh i’ve been burned, but it’s never let me down.

a detail pic of the pleating thingybob.

and a fun picture of her mobile, just playing around with my camera. i swear i’ve taken more pictures in the last 3 days than the last 3 weeks combined.

more crafty stuff in the works…but mostly christmas presents, so darn! can’t show em off til MUCH later. i am going to start her dollhouse makeover soon, though. here is what it looks like now.

not too shabby, huh? for $15, you can’t beat that price!

well, you can’t see the dings, scratches, etc. like the upstairs floor being installed upside down. (it has carpets on the living room/kitchen ceiling) anyways, it’s just getting a spruce up. so, more on that another day too.


  1. The lamp shade looks great! I’m loving the fabric. Sounds like you are busy as usual. I can’t wait to see your Christmas ideas.

  2. what type of fabric is that? it’s fabulous!

  3. it’s Amy Butler fabric-wallflower in Cherry. I found it on etsy! the pleats are made from muslin. :)

  4. Okay, I swear I’m not only going to make comments when this happens, but I just started laughing when I saw the picture of your little girl in the pink shirt with the one button. I swear, really, we have the exact same taste in baby clothes because my daughter has that shirt too! lol, I’m such a nerd. I should just keep this stuff to myself. Also, I can’t recall if you said you got a Canon Rebel xti or xsi, but I have that camera as well and it is the best…so if it’s wrong, I’m wrong with you because I take a gajillion pictures with it and I’ve had it for over a year. :) oh and LOVE the lampshade
