Crafty Baby!

Planning a baby's room is much more difficult than I thought it would be. I have to set him up in a room that has all wood paneling and cork floors, so pretty much a solid pallette of yes, brown. I also didn't want to create the standard pastel crib/changing table/rocker glider/Pooh bear set up that I usually see in pictures. I toyed with the idea of a rock vs. country room with an acoustic guitar on the wall...then I thought of a "toy" room decorated with old tin toys. I still haven't really settled on any type of theme, but have started crafting things nonetheless. So far the main centerpiece will be a large circus print and circus photos that were my grandmas. I like the idea of grandma Betty looking over our little guy while he sleeps. And what kid doesn't love the circus?!

Maybe I'll Try Embroidery Again...

I was so excited today, upon reading my newsletter from Crafty Planet, I discovered that the mastermind behind my cute Pumpkin Girl logo has launched a new Sublime Stitching Pattern! Yes, friends, now you can stitch yourself a cute Kurt Halsey angel, birdie, or other what-not!

I also have to give credit to my good pal Brad, who designed the logo, too, and convinced Kurt to help. Whatta guy.

Anyway, back to embroidery. I once tried Sublime Stitching's Tattoo Pattern and I really liked it. My only problem was deciding what I could embroider stuff on. Only so many pillowcases and dish towels in my house... What do you embroider on?

Okay, off to spend a whopping $3 at Crafty Planet for a new Kurt Halsey embroidery pattern...too adorable.
