The One With More Nursery Crafting

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!


Craft A:
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!


Craft B:
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!
