This little girl is my fave :) Also this is her new best friend..she actually cuddles him…melts my heart!
Washi Tape Storage Containers
Who doesn’t like washi tape?? Everyone does and if you don’t have any you need to get some! It makes every ugly plain thing look pretty! Like these plain white storage boxes! Here’s a fun and easy DIY for you today!
I made these for Penny’s room…and I need way more because babies accumulate a lot of stuff!!!
Hope you are having a fab day!!
My living room :)
We are back again….woo! Twice in a week! We’re making progress!
So before I had Penny I went on a redecorating rampage and rearranged my whole house….I think back on what I was like pregnant now and I was kinda insane haha! In a good way because I love my house now…thank god I changed it up before I had a baby because I’m here a lot now and if I had to stare at my old living room before I think I would go insane again :)
I didn’t really do much but simply painted, added new pillows, blankets and prints! I went with a black and white theme..Have any of you checked out A Merry Mishap Blog? I just love her style..a modern look and mine is not quite the same but I’m going with the black and white and kinda working with the stuff I had before…a rustic modern look maybe?
I got rid of most of my vintage books because I only used them as decoration before and didn’t actually read them. So the bookshelves got a bit of a purge :)
The ottoman below I recovered with the fabric I got from Spoon Flower…the best place to buy fabrics I think!
I just can’t get enough of animal prints wearing clothes..ahha..too funny :)
Ikea is your best friend when you are changing up simple decor items in your house because you don’t spend a fortune…a change of pillows and throws can really make a difference! I wish I had cleaned up a bit better when taking these pictures..oops!
I was literally at Ikea every week when I was pregnant…and whenever I go there now I see a bunch of pregnant ladies doing the same thing…going insane ahhah!
I will show you the rest of my house soon!
Have a fabulous day!
DIY cloud baby leggings!
Today I will show you how to make some really cute cloud baby leggings! It’s so simple and they’re adorable! I can’t wait for Penny to wear them!
What you need:
* plain white leggings
* black fabric paint
* paint brush
* cloud stamp (I got mine in Australia but you can easily make one yourself from soft rubber)…or you could use any stamp really!
1. Place some cardboard inside the pant leg on both sides
2. Apply some black fabric paint to the stamp and randomly stamp the leggings! If it’s blotchy when you lift off the stamp…just fill in the empty areas with your paintbrush :)
3. Repeat on the other side! Let dry overnight!
It’s so easy to spend loads of money on baby clothes….there are so many cute baby girl outfits out there!! Since they grow out of them so fast…it’s easier and cheaper to just buy some basics and create something new!
Hope you enjoyed the cloud leggings!!
Have a terrific Tuesday!!
I was so alarmed this morning to find a monkey in my bed! A little white squishy monkey!
Thank you all again for being so patient with me as I get comfortable with motherhood! This blog will be up and running soon because Penny is getting much easier to handle!
I hope everyone has a great Sunday! Snuggle in bed, eat waffles, go on a nice long walk and buy yourself some fresh flowers!
So she’s pretty cute..right?!! This cute little Penny has also kept me really busy lately and every time I try and sit down to blog she wakes up and needs me! She is being fussy right now as I type away on my iPhone!
Wow motherhood is a tough job…I have so much respect for every mother out there now! I can’t even imagine how it is with two! I definitely want more babies and I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon but wow one is a handful in itself!
My thoughts prior to having a baby:
* why do all mothers say they can’t get anything done around the house? Why don’t they just put the baby in the vibrating chair while they do their chores?!
*** because they only like to be held by you and cry when you put them down haha!
* why do all mothers tell me my dog Luna will be neglected?! I can take her for walks with the baby all the time!
***** Luna is no longer the center of attention….poor thing! She still gets walks obviously but they are seriously delayed because getting out of the house with Penny takes forever!
* why are moms always late?! How hard can it be to just put the baby in a carseat?!
****because right when you have everything organized to leave the house the baby gets hungry and then poops her pants and then needs to be changed with a new outfit! Then they puke on your outfit so you have to change that hahaha!
* I’m never buying the hideous tacky chairs, playmats and toys they have out there for babies..only pretty things will be in this house :)
**** they don’t like the pretty things…they love tacky everything…it stimulates them and makes them happy! If it makes Penny happy..I will buy it no matter how tacky it is!
Boy was I wrong haha! But my life is no longer the same…it’s way way better! I can handle all the crying, pooping, puking and fussiness because she is the best thing that ever happened to me and I’m so so grateful she is in our lives and I can’t wait for the years to come! It’s so worth all the hard work!!
So I guess you have noticed that I haven’t posted the DIY’s I promised…maybe I should stop promising haha! For now I will update you on pretty Penny until she decides it’s time to let me post some crafts :) Hopefully soon because I have a DIY baby dress that is ready to be sewn in my craft room!
Have a great weekend everybody!!!
