DIY Fun Fabric Banner

When we moved up to Washington I decided to change a lot of the decor in Mae's room! Some of it she had outgrown and some just looked better with her old peach walls and not so great on the new white one.  Since we are renting I couldn't do anything permanent to the walls so I made a few  new wall hangings. One of my favorites and a fun little project was the fabric banner. It nice because you can customize it completely, from the size to the saying, to the colors. It can be a completely unique piece...

Kids Stroller Upcycle

While unpacking the house they came across Mae’s old stroller and she was obsessed she pushed it all around the house everywhere she could go, but it was very difficult considering how short she is and how tall it was. I decided to check out the local Goodwill the other day and I came across a stroller for two dollars I grabbed it right away. The seat was ripped so I knew I would have to see a new one but that wouldn’t be too hard.  Luckily I already had some fabric and spray paint at home so I just...

DIY Height Ruler

When I was putting together Mae’s Nursery I loved to explore Hobby Lobby to check out there nursery décor. They always had things I want to buy so idea that I could make! One item I loved was the height ruler/charts. They are a super cute and usable decoration for the nursery! The chart they sold were gray with pink numbers which did not match the look I was going for and they were only 5ft tall (I’m 5’11” and Gabe 6’5”).

Kitty Rag Doll

When I was on anthropology's website the other day I saw the cutest deer rag dolls for little girls!! They were absolutely adorable and I wanted to get one for Mae but I didn’t feel like paying the $30 price tag. When I went home I decided to try to make her one, but instead of a deer I wanted to go with the cat since it’s Mae’s favorite. This was a very fun project to make anyone with some sewing experience can make it. The hand embroidery is probably the most difficult part, but if you take your time...

FUN FALL MAGNETS

I try to make a Goodwill run once a month to see what goodies I can find. They offer 1/2 off everything every other Saturday so you can get a great deal!

They were all miss matched and I'm not even sure I got every letter, but I figure for a $1 might as well. Plus I can always add to the collection if I ever see more. I decided to make them a little more cohesive by spray...

Wooden Baby Stackables

Mae is 10 months!!! Where has the time gone! As she has gotten older her interest in her “possessions” as Gabe and I call them, has grown and grown.

The toy is really easy to make and only...
