Boys’ Superhero Birth Stats DIY Wall Art

Boys' Superhero Birth Stat Wall Art

I originally made one of these signs for my cousins’ new baby boy as a gift but I thought they may not want all their newborns info all over my blog, so I made one up for my son (who is now 5 but, hey, better late than never!). What You’ll Need: Flat Canvas (I […]

So many of my friends have had or are having babies this year! I made these for a friend at the request of her sister and now I’ll show you how to make them too. She asked me to make two sports themed onesies and two girly onesies (all for a baby girl). What You’ll […]

Shimmery Tutu Wreath

My step-brother and his girlfriend just welcomed my new newest niece, sweet little Zoey Elise. I finally did something crafty during the move transition and went to Hobby Lobby to get the stuff to make this for her.  You can see my original tutorial for the Tutu Wreath here, but I wanted this one to […]

D.I.Y. Personalized Nursery Wall Art

D.I.Y. Personalized Nursery Wall Art I started this Wall Art back when I was working on Quinn’s Nursery and just now got around to finishing it.  You’ll have to forgive some of the picture quality.  The kids got ahold of our good camera and it now needs replacing so my iPhone has to suffice in the […]

The Ruffly Tank Dress

This easy sew starts with a basic store-bought tank (I used this one from Old Navy).  Add some sweet ruffles and you’ve got a cute little tank dress.  I used elastic thread to attach the skirt piece so it’s easy to fit over your child’s head.  If you’ve never use elastic thread, now’s your chance.  It’s […]

One Month…

Quinn is one month old already.   Something about parenthood makes one so much more aware of how time passes far too quickly. It’s not that I don’t look forward to the future of her sleeping through the night, because I SO do, but knowing that this is our last baby has made me want […]

A little update (and a few baby pics!)

Catnaps. This is an accurate picture of a good part of my days lately…When I’m not doing stuff for my 2 and 3 1/2 year old anyway! (And on this day, I actually did my hair which has only happened about once since Quinn’s birth!) I’m a person who finds it hard to slow down […]

Pattern Review: Sophie’s Vintage Sunsuit by Haute Diggity

I originally saw this pattern on Pinterest and had to move it to the top of my sewing to-do list.   It’s so sweet, unique, and retro. Seriously, how adorable is this sun suit?                                           […]

All my bags are packed…

I’m SO ready to go. I love my babies. (And while I know how blessed we are) I don’t so much enjoy the pregnancy part… Soon I will be able to see and reach my own toes again. And I must admit, I am really looking forward to enjoying a nice glass of wine or […]

Etched Mirror

I kept seeing gorgeous mirrors in nursery’s only to look them up to find they costs hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars!  I did everything in Quinn’s nursery on a strict budget.  This DIY project cost about $35 total.  I used a cheap Better Homes and Gardens mirror from WalMart, some pink spray paint, etched […]

Minky Baby Blanket

I’ve always wanted to do a project with Minky but it’s a material that I found a bit intimidating due to always hearing how slippery it is and how hard it can be to work with.  I’m here to tell you, it’s not that bad!  Maybe because this is an easy project but I didn’t […]
