Two more projects to share:
1. The DIY mobile that Mom and I made over Christmas.
We drew our inspiration from Etsy and also this bad boy: the actual mobile that my aunt made for me as a baby:
I love me some farm animals but the colors weren't exactly right, nor were the animals. But we decided to make something similar with just birdies and thus, the project began...
I love the end result! We will definitely have to raise it up higher once he can stand so he doesn't pull it down, or maybe active kiddos in a crib don't really even need a mobile by then? But either way, one more project has a big fatty check mark next to it. And of course it was DIY so it was practically free.
2. Another print for the nursery, made by me in Photoshop, highly personalized but without his name (still can't show you a few of my creations)
Between Christmas and New Years we got to see all of our immediate family. So I knew this was the time to pull together my vision. I can't take full credit for it, since I did see something similar online somewhere, but I tweaked it to make it more us.
F=baby's parents, and doggy brother:)
A=baby's Missouri Grandparents and doggy auntie.
M=baby's Great Grandparents in Missouri
I=baby's Uncle Michael in Missouri
L=baby's Grandparents in Wisconsin, plus another doggy uncle
Y=baby's Uncle Jon in Oregon
Yup, his family may be pretty spaced across the nation but I love having this to remind baby boy of his loving family.
I have this printed and framed, ready to be hung!
Just one or two more prints floating around in my mind and then I'm going to get to work on a wall gallery of sorts with everything hung together. Other than that, we still need to finish sewing the bed skirt, the ties for the bumper, will make the pennant fabric banner when my mom comes up in February, and I need to organize the closet/dresser after washing everything. Not too shabby! I seriously don't know what I'll do with myself once the nursery is done, though. I have a feeling I might create more projects for myself just because I love decorating it so much.
