No baby yet! I just got back from another 3-mile walk and I’m still drinking my Raspberry Tea, but baby is being stubborn and wants to wait a little while longer!


To keep busy last week, I made those fabric flags for the nursery. It took a couple of days and it was so much fun to do something creative before the baby comes.

I bought way too much fabric though and wanted to put it good use somehow. After a little bit of Googling and Pinteresting, I decided to make some cloth baby blocks like this:

I followed these instructions and cannibalized a couple of pillows to stuff them. But I think they came out pretty good!
(They are 6” squares).

I love that the fabric matches the rest of the room too (we’re a little obsessed with sage and brown!)


Hopefully the baby will like them too!


And if that wasn’t enough crafting for one week… I worked on finding a way to display my postcard collection! When I was in  Europe, I started buying postcards of the art I saw in museums. Over time, I ended up with a whole shoebox full of great photographs and art. It was a shame it was sitting on a shelf. So I bought some ribbon and hotglued them to it and hung them on a blank wall. I LOVE it!

It fills the space and keeps my eyes busy. So fun!


Clearly, I have too much time on my hands now! Hurry up, baby! =)
