Some projects

I've been trying to get some projects done but it's coming very slowly. I still have so much to do--unfinished projects--before the baby comes. That doesn't include all the cleaning and shopping I need to do before she gets here. I haven't gotten any baby stuff yet, but plan on doing that in the next month or so.

Anyway, here are two projects I've completed.

I am very pleased with how this turned out. I bought a picture from Goodwill and took it apart, covered it with fabric, and painted the frame. Then my friend Kera cut the butterflies out with her awesome Sihouette and I glued them to the fabric. I still have some thingsto do for her nursery but some of those will have to wait until I get to Colorado.

I also have been making hair stuff, since she has hair! The boys decided to model them. This is going to be gigantic on her head I think. I still need to put a cute little gem or something in the middle and will probably hot glue it to the band better so it lays a little better.


Not a project for me, but something we got done this week, was to get my Christmas present framed. I love it. It's also going to be an early birthday present. It looks so much better in person.

Adrianne,
Your projects have turned out so cute. The boys look so "handsome" in their bows....they can keep wearing them until the baby gets big enough. ;)

I really like the butterfly frame and bow. Dave and I are moving to a house the first of April so Ansleigh will finally have her own room and I have recently been trying to figure out how to decorate it. Do you know of any blogs or anything that can give me some inspiration? What gave you yours?

Mike and Adrianne said...

Tana, yes! There are so many blogs out there with ideas. I'll send you on some. What do you think you want to do for her room? Any theme yet? How exciting for you to move into a house and have some more space!!

Tana said...

I would love that! I don't really know if I want a specific theme I just have a color pallet I am wanting to work with....I know that I defiantly want to have paper lanterns in the room. I have seen some cute rooms with it and found them cheap on a website already...Sounds random but the pictures I have seen of it look cute.

Are you doing a garden theme?
