With the baby on her way, i've decided that i might as well get in touch with my domestic side and make some minor attempts at being crafty.
First, i figured that with the plethora of pregnancy pictures and random experiences over the last 8 months that i should put a scrapbook together to remember everything. Its the first baby and i'm overly excited, so why not? I have never attempted scrapbooking before and i have learned that its an extremely time consuming extravaganza. But, this little one's scrapbook is coming along, slowly but surely.
Second, when on a budget decorating a nursery calls for craftiness (or at least it does in my opinion). I decided (after blog stalking) that i wanted to have these cute little birds hanging from the ceiling in the corner of the baby's room. By enlisting the help of my crafty friend Diana we found a pattern, picked out fabric, and got to work. After hours of cutting and sewing (shout out to Diana's sister-in-law Kristen for her help) we finished the birds. I'm in love with them. We haven't hung them quite yet, but i'm sure i'll post a picture when we do. Aren't they lovely?I have to say that all this craftiness is WAY outside my comfort zone, but i have to admit that i really like it. Its like trying something you've never done before and realizing that you could actually do it. I was on a crafting high the other day. I have six scrapbook pages done and i made birds... bring it on world.
Diana and i are now in the process of making curtains (pictures to come soon, whether you want them to or not). Watch out my domestic levels are skyrocketing!
