The Amazing Elegant Designer Baby Girl Bedding. And a Craft.

Feast your eyes on THIS



My MOM made this!!!!!!!! We just got it all set up, and I can't get a very good picture. Sun has gone down so I can't get any natural light.



Isn't it GORGEOUS?? It takes my breath away. I can't believe I am having another baby. Such a miracle.



My mom has worked countless hours on this. I did stuff the bumpers though....which was a PICNIC....But I wanted them puffy like that, so for the last while we've been going over to my moms and working on it every weekend. Its been awesome to hang out there. We don't have TV, so Josh gets to watch his precious sports.

Last weekend we did a family photo shoot/maternity shoot with Madalyn. It was so much fun. Can't wait to see the pictures. Kaius was feeling under the weather, and wasn't that into kissing my belly :( Oh well.

Oh, now I've added something to the nursery...


I got this idea from theidearoom. However, her tutorial is kind of REALLY hard to understand. It took me forever trying different ways on how to do the rosettes, and finally when I just stopped trying so hard they looked good.
Can you believe something so elegant came from some cheesy party streamers?



We were at Zurchers looking for the streamer and Josh was like "Uh, you need this for what?" and I tried to explain you fold it in half and roll it up into a little rose and glue it on this styrofoam ball (which are ridiculously expensive...I thought they'd be like a dollar, try $14!!) And Josh was like oookay...this will be interesting. But when he saw my finished product, he was awe struck :D

I am SO not a crafty person, but I wish I was. I'm trying. Its just hard for me to go to craft stores and actually BUY everything. I think its the frugal girl in me.

cute! Yeah the rosettes take awhile till you kinda have your own way to do it. I always waited for a coupon to come out from hobby lobby or michaels to get the ball for 40 percent off and the dollar store for the streamer.

Thanks for sharing the pictures! If you want more fluff behind the skirt (so it's a good stashing place and hiding place for Kaius), let me know... we have plenty..

I love you.
