  • Mini Yogurt Pops yogurtpops6

    Hi friends!!  We’ve been down in Orange County, CA this past week, celebrating my sweet niece Rylie’s first birthday.  I can’t believe our little Ryry is now one years old!   She came into the world smiling, flashing her deep dimples and has been a ray of sunshine ever since.  Rylie’s also Zoey’s best friend ...

  • Chalkboard Alphabet Blocks blocks1

    Zoey’s starting to learn and identify letters which is a welcome change from her animal obsession. There are only so many times a day we can read the same farm book over and over.  As of now, she can identify the letters that spell out her name and thats about it.  BUT she thinks she knows all ...

  • Nursing Covers and Pacifier Clips nursingcover2

    Hi!!  It’s been awhile!  Sorry I didn’t post anything last week.  I kept meaning to but my colicky baby is keeping my hands full!  (Literally.) I sat down to write this post a dozen times and kept getting interrupted. Hopefully I will get to  press the “publish” button before the end of the night.  If ...

  • Contoured Diaper Changing Table Pad Cover diapercover1

    Well, I didn’t go into labor yet!  Baby girl is still hanging in there!  I’m at the point where half of me wants her to come out because I’m so uncomfortable and the other half of me is scared of the labor/delivery process and wants her to stay inside forever!  The waiting is the hardest ...

  • Paper Lantern and Light Mobile lanternmobile1

    My absolute favorite project that I’ve done so far for our nursery is this paper lantern and light mobile!   When I first started brainstorming ideas for our baby girl’s room, I saw this nursery on pinterest and fell in LOVE with the lantern mobile.  I wanted to replicate it but in pink/white for our ...

  • Tiered Ruffle Crib Skirt (A Pottery Barn Kids Knockoff) cribskirt1

    I’m 37.5 weeks pregnant now (what! what?! I’m full term! AH!)  and madly working on our baby girl’s nursery.  It’s slowly starting to come together now, hopefully we will get it all done before she arrives!  I’m praying that she doesn’t come early, especially since Jeff is traveling this week and 3,000 miles away in ...

  • Maternity Countdown Shirt maternity_countdown1

    Hey guys!  Thought I’d share another maternity project that I’ve been working on – a maternity countdown shirt!   When I first found out I was pregnant, I was trying to think of fun ways to document my ever expanding belly.  At first, I was buying fruits that were about the same size of the ...

  • Maternity Belly Bands bellybands1

    One of the first maternity projects I made for myself after we found out we were expecting was belly bands!  Belly bands are a tube of stretchy knit/jersey fabric that you wear around your waist to help keep your pants up.   You wear them over your unzipped or unbuttoned non-maternity jeans when you are ...

  • Felt Hair Clips, Again (this time, the cheating way) hairclips1

    Last year, I shared how I handmade some sweet felt hair clips for two special little girls (see tutorial here!)  This year, I got lazy.  I discovered an easier way to make felt hair clips that was much faster  and turned out way cuter than anything I could sew.  It’s kind of cheating, but I ...

  • Felt Lettered Baby Blanket (tutorial) luke2

    I made this blanket for baby Luke, the second son of some dear friends of mine. One of the first baby blankets I ever made a few years ago was for their first born son, Seth, so I had to make something for their second child as well. I feel bad for second babies who ...

  • Embellished Baseball Cap (tutorial) cap1

    I decorated this hat for a little 3 year old boy in less than 15 minutes! I got the little distressed baseball cap from GapKids on sale for $5!   These are my favorite types of projects- cheap, quick and easy. The cap was really plain so I wanted to spruce it up a little. I cut ...

  • Reversible Superhero Cape (tutorial) cape_title

    I made this reversible superhero cape for my little friend Mikey. Mikey is one of my favorite little boys- so sweet, smiley, and easy going.  He laughs at everything and his girlish high-pitched squeals and giggles capture my heart.   If I have a little boy, I want my child to be just like him, he’s ...

  • My Foray Into Nursing Covers nursingcover_title

    My college roommate is expecting her second son next month and she challenged me to make a nursing cover for her.  She was telling me about how expensive nursing covers are even though they are really just a piece of material with a strap attached. The designer ones sell for $30-40!  I didn’t know anything ...
