A few weeks ago I saw this pop up on The Paper Mama’s Instagram feed and I so badly wanted attend the Portland craft night. But, alas, Portland is a solid 2 hour drive for me … not home anymore. And so, I was forced to kick off a solo craft night in hopes of […]

“Nursery” Peek

IMG_3361

  Nurseries aren’t really a big deal around here. They never have been. Jemma had a little corner in our room and a play space in our guest room. Max too, had a corner in our room. That’s it. Talk about depriving our children and saving money while we’re at it! Seriously though, we always […]

Self – whip up a mobile

A friend and I got together this past weekend to craft mobiles. Seriously, when the mountain of laundry is piling and I can hardly keep my head above water, what on earth makes me think, “Self, let’s whip up a mobile this weekend!” Anyways … I love how colorful the butterflies are! I plan to […]

Montessori Baby Room

Our humble abode has 3 upstairs bedrooms. Dominic, Jemma and I share the master. Our roomie and longtime friend rents one room and the third is an office/guest/craft/play room. That leaves zero space for Miss Jem to grow into. Right now, I’m not too concerned. Our lease is only through summer 2012 so we’ll be […]

My dear friend, Leah, follows my blog and saw my post on Petit Collage. Rather than smile at its’ sweetness she got to work. That’s right! Due to the creative bug that lives inside her Leah opted to make her own version of the prints I adored. Can you say “blessed”? I am still thrilled […]

Vintage Perfection

I adore this nursery featured on Spearmint Baby yesterday. The perfect mix of whimsical childhood dreams and vintage flair. Love. Love. Love. P.S. I bought the large alphabet puzzle at a garage sale for $3. What? What!

This is what compromise looks like …

tv

We are in the very beginning stages of piecing together the nursery corner of our room. See that chic TV perched atop the dresser? Yep, that is what compromise between Dominic and I looks like. I would prefer to trash the TV, he would prefer it morph into a 42″ flat screen mounted on the […]
