I've been spending a ton of time getting the nursery ready. It's taken a lot more time than I would have thought, but part of the reason is because I have been making lots of crafts for it. I'm getting so excited that it is starting to come together!
She has a closet (and a whole chest of drawers) full of clothes already. They are organized by size, but have not been washed yet.
And of course . . . she wouldn't be a true Brunson without lots of shoes already!! Most of them are from the Brunson's :)
Rick bought her the Redskins beanie and booties... so cute!
My mom said that this onsie just "jumped" into her cart... she loves us!
I found this wall hanger thing at the DI for $0.75. I know it's kind of old school, but I needed things for the wall, and some sort of hooks, so it was perfect! Notice the cute hats. My sweet sister must have spent hours making them, and a matching diaper bag, for my Christmas Present. She did an amazing job on them. They look like they were bought at an expensive boutique!
I spent hours making like 20 of these birds out of some fabric that my mom gave me (some from the 80's or before I am sure) and some fat quarters I found on clearance. I decided to make a mobile for over her crib with them. I have something up my sleeve for the rest of the birds... (that will be in a post to come)
It's not the best picture of the mobile, but you get the idea. I'm debating hanging a few more random birds around it, outside of the hoops.
Notice the cute blanket on the chair. My mom made it for me, it's so cute and super soft!
Dun Dun Nuh Nuh!!! My sweet daddy cut a bunch of these wooden cubes for me so I could make some blocks. You might remember this post where I said that I wanted to incorporate the birds into her room. A friend gave me a whole digital scrapbook kid (that included the birds and flowers, etc.), so I played around with them a little bit and made some blocks out of them. I am pretty excited about this one. I modge podged them onto the blocks that I had sanded and stained. I had everything, so they were free!!
I have something else up my sleeve for this digital scrapbooking kit... that will be a in a future post as well... That one might just be my favorite craft of them all!
