D's Nursery

Its been three months since D came into our lives. But it was many months before that that we started to plan for his room. He may not have known it when he first came home but now we can see him looking around.. it is possible that he is staring at something else completely but I like to think that he smiles because he enjoys the colors around him.

When we started out his room at been a make shift office for M and also functioned as a guest room. And it looked like this the day we started to paint. Our choice of color Lemon Pound Cake. We knew he was a he but we didn't want to trap him in a blue room just because he was a boy.


We don't believe in excess so we didn't go crazy buying toys.. we thought we'd wait and see what type of a baby he was.. and shop to suit his personality also that it would be wise to wait till he was actually able to play with toys.. but a cute little train and a few others were just too hard to resist.


Our crib is the Graco Lauren, Dwell Traffic Bedding from Target.  Above the crib hang colorful lantern from the Dollar Tree.




The bookshelves were once nightstands in our room. We removed the doors and repourposed them as floating shelves. Above the bookshelves three art prints. The numbers and alphabet one created by yours truly and the gorgeous boy girl art print created by a very talented felllow Etsian HeatherFuture



Our comfy chocolate rocking chair a great find at the Burlington Coat Factory's Baby Depot above which hangs a mobile I made inspired by the designs of  Lupin of Bugs and Fishes made with a beautiful array of felt from Pixie Rose. This was quite a project.. I was sewing in bed and sewing in the car and I don't sew. Though it required no more than a running stitch I have never done more than reattached a fallen button. We also repurposed some plain white curtains we had. I bought a rubber stamp from Drumchick99 a little robot and stamped the little guy along the bottom of the curtains.


  Lastly, we installed additional shelving in D's closet. He may not have much now but a day will come when the extra closet space will come in handy. And we bought these really cute blue and green bins from Target.


We had so much fun putting together the nursery.. so many memories to be made.. stories to be told and sleepless nights to be had.

I'm on the Cover!

I am on the cover of Underwired Magazine's September issue! Well not me per se but my work.. but I do make it on the 3rd page under artists statement! I recieved a copy of the magainze a few days ago but couldn't post till now.. hubbay happened to knock my laptop off the counter over the weekend. Thank god my laptop is intact and in great shaape.. as if nothing ever hapened.. but my charger died.. Thank god for the warranty I'll recieve a new one soon.. but not soon enough.. it will take 6 days! It was a non paying gig but I'm not complaining.. I'm still beaming at the fact that someone found my work interesting enough to put on their cover. The image is of a set of birthday candles with the words Happy Birthday written in a variety of languages. A little something for everyone : ) Happy Birthday


and here's me with the the published cover


In other news D is almost 3 months old.. he smiles at us.. and he pretends to listen and understand when I ramble on.. and on.. my husband insists he would roll his eyes if he could but I think he likes my stories : ) He has still yet to sleep through the night.. he wakes up every few hours.. sometimes even every hour.. ah the joys of parenthood : )

For all the people who sleep through the night, eat food without trying to simultaneously bounce a baby and sip there coffe while still hot enjoy it.. these are cherished moments..
