Nursery Craftiness

I have been working on Adeline's nursery little by little, and hopefully it will be done by the time she starts sleeping through the night. I still have her sleeping next to my side of the bed since she's breastfeeding and wakes up a couple times during the night to eat, but I'm hoping that once she starts solids (we're waiting 'til she's six-months-old), I might get a full night's sleep!

Most of the decor in her room so far is d.i.y. and It has been a ton of fun...I've painted canvases, strung bunting, decorated storage boxes, arranged books and toys and baubles...

I've been collecting a lot of pretty, vintage children's books to put on display (and read!)

Some lovely '70's trim I am determined to use in at least one project...also i thought the tag line on the rust colored lace was hilarious.

I'll post some proper pictures when the whole room is done.

oh, hey there

Hello Blogosphere!

It has taken me an unusually long time to join you (if you don't count the awkward high school xanga), but here I am! I suppose it took me this long because I've been over-analyzing what i wanted to say and  how i wanted to present myself online. So this is what I have come up with thus far: I want my blog to be about things that are important to me, such as my wonderful new turn at motherhood and whatever lessons and adventures come of it, crafting my life, and trying my best to honor God and live according to His plan. I do not want this to be long, drawn out or overly personal by any means, and, yet, I want it to stay honest. This should stay a place to share my ideas (crafty rather than controversial) and brag about my adorable daughter. That's the plan anyway.

<3 Katie
