Labor of Love

I finished the children's rooms- go me!  This post will be mostly pictures, so bear with me.  And I'm kind of bummed because it's looking like a few pictures I had didn't make the jump from phone to computer.

*As a side note, JUSTIN:  I took photos with my phone, instead of a real camera.  Don't I deserve a real camera to document my creativity?*  And now we carry on...

Burp Cloths.  I made six, so I'm about 194 short.  I wish I was joking.

Part of the room.  I wish the picture I had of the other wall would have been saved.  I hate you technology.  (The blanket hanging on the crib was made by yours truly.  Thank you, thank you.)

This is a part of the wall I don't have a photo of.  Next to it is a painting of a doll house.  It's really cute, and I'm annoyed you can't see it too.

My work in progress.  I think this photo was actually taken during the FIRST time I had to sew it all together.  In my excitement, I put the batting, backing and quilt in the wrong order.  Turns out that's a kind of important step.

One of the fitted sheets I made.  I have officially declared myself a Master Fitted-Sheet Maker.  I'm currently looking for some type of badge to wear, so that when people see me on the streets they'll show some respect.

I added my own little spice to a cute, but pretty boring lamp I found at Target. Gotta love Target.

The wall of hooks.  I love my hodge-podge hooks.  But I think I am even more in love with that little cardigan.

Extreme close-up of the pillow I made.  I have never felt so crafty in my life.  And I am so sick of seeing that same yellow, purple and red fabric.  It looks good in the room, but if I have to stitch one more inch I'm going to lose it!

And there you have it: my Saturday-Monday in a nutshell.  I don't even have photos of Milo's new room yet.  It's cool and all, but everything is store bought so I feel as though I shouldn't be taking credit for any of it.  But Goose's room?  Yeah, I'll take all that accolades for that one.

In other news, I feel like I should share something else about my life, but I have no clue as to what that should be.  I don't feel like I'm doing a very good job at this whole blog thing.  But I suppose someone out there is enjoying this.  Right...?


  1. Yes, I am! I had no idea you are so crafty! I LOVE everything.

  2. I'm enjoying it! Teach me teach me! The room minus that one wall looks awesome!

  3. I'm enjoying it, too! You have been busy. All your projects look wonderful. You definitely deserve respect from all those clueless street people.

  4. Thanks ladies!

    Whitney, let's get crafty together here soon. You bring your sewing machine and I'll provide the pizza rolls!
