abc clothesline

(blurry pictures are maddening!  hopefully i can get a better camera soon!)

i used my mom-in-law’s new cricket expression to cut out these large alphabet letters.  i strung them up on jute with mini-clothespins.  i’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.  i’d like the letters to be more sturdy, but chip board would have taken a much longer time to create.

i’m working on decorating noah’s room more, because it is fairly bland.  i just have a really hard time with boy decor, but i want him to have things to look at on his walls.  my next project for his room is to make book pockets that can hang low enough for him to take books in and out of.  we have books everywhere right now, and i need accessible storage. i have a picture in my head of what this will look like, but i’ll post an actual picture once i make it!

i realize i have lost many readers with my lack of blog posts, but if you’re out there, what say you to this lovely name? honesty is respected, although may not be taken into account when the decision becomes imminent!

what are some of your favorite baby names that others have “opinions” on?

the holidays have passed, but garland can have so many more purposes other than just accenting your christmas tree.  you can use  garland for a birthday party, a baby shower, a kid’s room, for that matter any room in your house, anytime!  anyway, i first saw this idea in a new book i got for christmas, homemade home, so i searched online for some other related ideas, and found tons.  felt garland!  it’s so easy, you don’t have to worry about anything unraveling if you aren’t great at sewing and it’s super cheap! here are some of my favorites from my search.
