Wipes Clutches

I made these diaper wipes cases to keep and hopefully to sell. Some of them have elastic on the back to put diapers under. Aren't they cute?

Nursing Latches

These are nursing latches. They are the coolest idea. All you do is latch them onto your baby's blanket and around your neck when nursing. That way the blanket stays secure and can't be pulled down while nursing. I love it because I have so many cute blankets already that I didn't want to buy one of those "hooter hiders," etc.

Bib and Burp Rag

A burp rag I crocheted around the edges and a bib with towel material I made for a friend.

Baby bracelet

I made this bracelet as a gift for a friend. It has mostly purple and pink beads, some brown. I can't figure out how to get a better picture of it with my camera. Oh well.

Rachel's Rag Quilt Gift

My sister Rachel gave Anne and I this little blanket for our babies, but I wanted to make it a bit larger, so I added the pink trim around the edges. Thanks Rach!

Bean Bag Chair

I finally finished Koy's bean bag that I have had the stuff for. I was afraid to start the project because I wasn't sure I would be able to do it, but once I started it wasn't hard at all. I even put a zipper in the bottom so I can wash the faux fur cover. It is made of a two toned blue fur that is so soft and matches the decor of my front room. Koy's birthday is in a month, so I finished just in time! I think I will make another one sometime later when Scarlett comes along.

Magnet Board

I found this magnet board on clearance, but the wood on it was like barn wood. Since that's not my favorite, I cut moulding to size and glued it on top and then spray painted it with a black gloss color and then added a satin ribbon (not pictured). A good improvement I think! I also made the magnets. Just get clear rocks and decopauge scrapbook paper to the back, then hot glue magnet.

Koy's Room

Here is a picture of my son, Koy's room. I saw the paint idea in a pottery barn magazine and copied it. (I love doing that!) To get the round dots on the border all I did was use two different sized stencil sponges. I also made the diaper stacker and wipes case that matched his crib set. It's just craft board with material glued on. The furniture was in a pile at someones house to give away, so I snagged them, painted them, and put on crystal knobs.

Leopard Print Pom Poms

I love pom pom trim, so when I saw this leopard print one I had to use it on something. I decided to juice up my towels in my jungle bathroom and then looked around and saw that I could attach it to the cabinent as well. This stuff is all in the same bathroom as my jungle animal paintings.


We lived in a cute rental house when we first moved to Manhattan and the land lord let me paint! I was so excited! My first time! I decided to put this quote, "Too blessed to be stressed" on the kitchen door. I got these rub on letters at Hobby Lobby, way cheaper than vinyl lettering.

Christmas Table Runner

This is a table runner that I made to go with my Christmas Decor. The edge is a sueded brown material and there are jingle bells betweeen the edge of the materials.

Family History Tree

This is a family tree that I made. My sister Anne gave me the idea. It is just scrapbook paper with family names on the leaves and trunk of the tree. I love how it came out and the different styles you could do are endless.
