baby baby baby

i went to a baby shower last weekend so i whipped up a little coordinating set a la homemade by jill.

i just made a few burp cloths, appliqued the onesie, knit my fav baby hat, and made a little brag book. these brag books are my new favorite craft. they are kind of like oragami made into a little book.
here it is all opened can see it folded up in the first picture. its kind of confusing to see how it works just in pictures, but you basically fold paper so that it folds all up nice and neat. then you can decorate your book and give it away so someone can add pictures!

this is the back side... see the covers on the ends?? if you all are interested it could probably put a tutorial together someday. its not my own mom learned about it from a friend and taught me... but i think i can still show you, right??

Craft Room Progress

Although not much crafting has been getting done... SOME progress has been made on the room it all goes down in! Its also our guest room... what do you think??

This is my new fav thrifty find! It was $10 or something... it was kind of scratched up and off white with black legs, but my parents got it all spiffed up to match my room! I HEART IT!

I don't know if it is a real Eames, but I LOVE it anyway! Maybe I will have to get the rocking chair someday to match.

Father's Day Fun

It has been a ridiculously long time since I've been over here - life has been insane the past few months! Just three more weeks of school and life should be a little more bearable. In the midst of it all I saw this project on Oh Happy Day (one of my favs) and had to do it.

There are three dads between the two of us and I always struggle to decide what to send as a gift, but this was so easy with such a cute impact I went for it. Two of three made it to Portland in one piece, but all were happily received - my step-dad even sent a hero themed thank you note!
