Yay for more nursery projects!! My last project was a DIY Baby Mobile, if you’d like to check it out. I’ve always been a huge etsy fan, but especially for art work and prints to hang just about anywhere in my house. I wanted to share a couple of cute etsy shops and show you where I found some of my favorite prints for the baby’s room!
Over the last few days, I’ve had some time to do a few nursery projects! One of them was a fabric mobile I saw on Pinterest and etsy. I figured it looked easy enough to make and it turned out super cute. I’m excited to show you guys what it looks like once it’s hung up in the nursery.

I was so anxious to meet this group of four years old’s and I’m really excited about the year ahead.

I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but I genuinely love wrapping Christmas presents. One of my favorite things about this season is going out in search of the perfect gifts for family and friends, and then wrapping them in some really creative or DIY-ish way. Let’s just say I spend a lot of time on Pinterest as I prepare for Christmas. Haha. Anyway, here’s one of the many Christmas crafts I enjoy doing and it makes gift wrapping a little more colorful. Plus, it’s super easy.
Here’s what you’ll need: hot glue gun, ribbon, sparkles, sequins, buttons or other knickknacks, card stock paper, scissors, marker/Sharpie, hole puncher (to add a ribbon to attach gift tag to gift). Continue reading
