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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
