vintage valentine wreath

I bought a bunch of these vintage valentines on Etsy and Ebay for my vintage themed valentines day party this year-but I was having the hardest time figuring out how to display them! First I started with a simple garland, with the valentines layered on top of doilies, then took that apart and did a garland with just the valentines....then took that … [Read more...]

quick and easy bow garland tutorial

   I just love a good bow, don't you? They are the perfect little detail to add to almost anything....a dress....headband....your car....heck even boys can wear them. I've never done bows in garland form though, so I thought what better time than now to start? I used this fantastic bow tie die from Quick Kutz. It worked great on felt too, I made a … [Read more...]

Charlotte’s big girl quilt (or, the start of it)

Since Ava kind of has dibs on her nursery, soon the girls will be sharing Sadie's room. (eek!! Ok deep breaths....she'll do fine with the transition to a big girl bed....she will still nap.....please oh please still nap, Charlotte...) So of course this means one thing....a new quilt! (and a new bed, more on that below) To keep with the vintage vibe … [Read more...]

the big nursery reveal!

Finally, it's here....the moment you've all been waiting for! haha...ok maybe the moment I've been waiting for! The nursery reveal!

ruffled crib skirt

I just love how the ruffled crib skirt came out for the new nursery! It took some time, of course...all that ruffling doesn't happen instantly...(unfortunately)...but I just watched some Netflix and it wasn't too painful. I used about 3 yards of fabric for the ruffles. (from the Mod Basics organic line from my sponsor Fabricworm!) I basically … [Read more...]

I am juggling like a bajillion projects right now and I LOVE it! Nothing better than getting creative and crafty...I live for it. :D Here's a little peek at the wall above her … [Read more...]

ombre dresser redo

I heart ombre. There's just something about all those shades of the same color that is so gorgeous! I already knew I wanted to paint our nursery dresser, which was pretty plain jane white...a walmart special we bought when we were getting ready for Sadie. (aka really cheap aka we were poor) I saw my friend Melanie paint her dresser drawers like … [Read more...]

hot air balloon baby mobile

I've always loved hot air balloons. I've never rode in one, and probably never will (I'm skeered of heights) but they are just so darn adorable. I love the ones with different colored panels...it's the quilter in me I guess! I drew my inspiration from a few I found on Etsy and had to make my own for the new nursery decor. Maybe it will be hot air … [Read more...]
