Organization plan

I have some serious organizing to do before this little girl arrives. I am nesting and I'm loving it. I found this wonderful idea on pinterest. They used a regular shoe organizer but this one is just for flip flops. It was on mega clearance so I bought this one instead. This one actually worked out perfect for my space because it is more slim and I was worried about the extra large foil boxed falling out of the vertical pockets. I'm pretty excited with the organized result!

Buzz Lightyear

I am finally posting the Buzz Lightyear costume I made for my little guy. I made it for $10. I found a white shirt at target for $4 and some baseball pants at a thrift store for $3.99. I already had the felt. I am very pleased with how it turned out. And my son seemed to be as well.

Toddler blanket

When our baby grew out of his crib, I really wanted a race car bed for his room. We found a twin size race car bed for half the price of the toddler bed. When we set it up we realized it was just way too big for his little room. So we ended up buing a toddle bed. By that time we had gotten a twin size duvett cover (and had mistakenly bought a queen blankt to go inside) for almost two years we have been dealing with this big clump of blankets on his bed. I finally got around to altering the blanket and cover for his bed.  No more clump! We can finally make hi bedand have it look decent. There is no before picture , I'm sure you can just imagine how it looked before. Here is a picture of it all done though!

Summer shelf

This is the set up for the shelf I have in the entry room of my home. I hate to think about changing it for fall because I have loved it so much.

New wreath

So since I got sick of looking at our Easter wreath (that was on our door till mid July) I decided it was time to make a new wreath.  I just put the finishing touches on it today though. What do you think? At first I thought it was too simple but now I love the simplicity with the blue door.

Lost In Thought

I ran across a blog recently of someone I know.  It was lovely.  Inspiring really. You know those people who make you want to be your best self? Achieve the things you know you can achieve by you let yourself hold you back?  Self doubt is so exhausting.  I don't know why I need to think so much before I do things.  One moment I feel so inspired to do something I have always wanted to do and the next moment I am totally distraught by all my weaknesses and telling myself all of the reasons why I shouldn't.  I need to make some changes.  I am in such a slump lately and I am in dire need to feel successful in some way.  I want to go to sleep at night feeling I got the most out of my day.  Be that in the quality time I spent with my son, or the time I spent in making my house beautiful and clean, working to accomplish and goal, or just learning something new.   I just need to be more.  That is all.

Little Ribbon Blanket

My cousin wanted a little blanket for her cute little baby to play with. She wanted one small enough so he wouldn't get wrapped up in it. She wanted some ribbons on it so h could play with them.

Finger Puppets

Made some finger puppets a while back. Not sure exactly why. I am going threw a robot faze and I really like how they turned out. However useless they may be...

I recently bought some new lunch containers for my husbands lunch. I am so inspired by the pretty lunch blogs I have been looking at. I took some pics of the lunches I have made. Here are some from the past week.
