bebe wreath

It's so crazy to me that I have this gorgeous pink wreath that won't sell and I do not have a single friend that is having a new girl that would want this wreath. Ironically, I have a ton of friends with girls but for some reason this wreath does not strike their fancy. When Colin came along I secretly hoped I would get to hang this wreath in my own home but that's ok, I'll take my future football player anyday. So, it hangs downtown in a local children's boutique and it is still for sale in my Etsy shop just waiting to go home to the perfect home.

Next are pictures I've found to inspire my bedroom makeover. I am copying the picture frame idea in this picture. I have a few gold ones that I am sanding to give a more distressed, less shiny look. I just bought an awesome shutter door for my headboard from an antique store. Instead of the garland in the picture, I'm going to use the one in this link, well not exactly, but I'm following Pam Garrison's idea since I loved what she did so much and instead of coffee filters I will use little pastel cupcake papers, along with ledger paper, and sheet music. I promise pictures will follow when it is all completed.

Wips, but most people call them lips. His big brother just happens to call them wips and I find that too cute. He also thinks little brother's wips look like a tire. Not sure where he gets that correlation from but I do know that big brother ADORES anything with tires. I've been so creative lately and promise to post a ton of things soon. I made a new onesie for little Colin and I bought some cool things for his room and mine. Can't wait to get them up with pictures too. Have a big order to start on that is way over due for a local children's boutique and a 4th birthday album to get started on. Then, after all of that, I must get busy trying to figure out the darn applique setting on my sewing machine. Before my mom passed we would sit and try to make the applique stitch work on our the machine we shared, and we never figured out. Then, she got sick and the rest went from there. I know she would smile down on me if I figure this thing out so I will! I'm quite determined!
