The fabric flowers we made for my sister’s wedding last year are sure getting a workout. Not only were they gorgeous in her bouquet, but I’ve used them (and made more!) for decorating around the house… and for decorating my kiddos (like Baby B here). This week, I thought they would look fabulous on a fresh, new Spring wreath! I think this nature-inspired wreath turned out really soft and pretty looking, and I like that it’s simple and a bit quirky. Continue reading
For Christmas, I made Baby B some soft new blankies that I was hoping she’d like and grow to love as her special blankies. So far, my plan is working and she seems to really love cuddling them! (“Them” – I made two so that I could rotate washing them, and just in case one got lost!)Continue reading
My 5 year old is a very particular girl. She specified several months ago that she wanted a “ballerina birthday party” this year. Then, a month or so ago, she clarified that she wanted a “winter ballerina bithday party with lots of light pink”.Continue reading
As soon as I told Little C that we were building a new house and that she was going to get a brand new bedroom, I could see the wheels turning in her little head on how she’d decorate it.
There was no question at ALL that her wall colour was to be purple. She was certain of that. Each time we visited Lowe’s, she picked up a few paint chips in various shades of purple to add to her collection. She settled on the most vibrant, most intense shade of electric plumb that I’ve ever seen and I gave it my mommy blessing. It was crazy, but she loved it so much – why not say yes? She picked all of the fun & whimsical artwork too (scroll down to the bottom of this post to see her pick from Fizz and Bean and for a chance to win your OWN canvas art!).Continue reading
With the impending completion of Our DIY House arriving soon (I hope!), I’ve been trying to get as many decor things done in advance as I possibly can.
Little C’s room is one of the easier ones. She knows exactly what she wants, and I purchased coordinating fabrics for her new room before we ran out of funds (house building is expensive, FYI). Continue reading
I’m excited about every single room in our new house (because we’ll actually have rooms for individual things and people), but this nursery for Baby A is one of my favourites.
Baby A has never had her own room (because our current Garage House is too small for that). This new “sunny woodland” sunny woodland” nursery will be a spot that she can call her very own! It will be wonderful for all of us.
I want a fun and playful bedroom for Baby A with lots of sorbet-inspired colours (sunny yellow, cheerful coral-y pink and minty blue) and retro woodland animals. When I found this fabric panel from Fabric.com ( Woodland Tails Panel Blue), it really inspired this space.
What do you think – will Baby A feel happy in her new, sunny room-to-be?

My mom is incredibly creative and I simply had to share with you this amazing DIY Easter basket she made with Little C this week!
I get my thriftiness from my mom, and she reused an ice cream pail for this basket. Some scrapbook paper squares, mod podge, craft foam and trim made it into an adorable Easter basket for Little C.Continue reading
