Recent Projects

We have been working on a couple of projects lately. Trying to get as much done as we can before Jarom starts school (Today) and the craziness begins! He has been so awesome and supporting all the many projects I want done before the baby comes! LOTS of painting and cleaning and such! Here are some pictures of them! I still have lots of sewing to do for the nursery, so no pictures of that yet.
We got this dresser/hutch thing on KSL for $30. It was an ugly sun bleached, yellow-ish/cream color. YUCK! Jarom painted it and got new knobs and viola! I want to put baskets on the top shelf for more storage and cuteness.

I also made this little stuffed turtle a couple weeks/months ago. I can't remember. It's pretty cute and fun! Just a little color to spruce up the dresser. I like to call her Lola. At first, while I was making her, I couldn't help but keep calling her "turdy" and giggle every. single. time! My niece and nephew are very "creative" when naming their stuffed animals or toys and just put a "Y" at the end of everything. They had a toy turtle and name it "turdy" hahah Get's me every time! So this is Turdy...Err...Lola! :)

This beauty was a project that we had been wanting to work on ALL SUMMER but never got the chance to! We got this dresser on KSL in May or something. With the intentions of doing this to it someday and just got around to it last week! Just in time! I love it! I LOVE the antiqued look! I want to re-do our whole bedroom Someday! Not for a while I guess. But this is a pretty addition! Much better than what it was before! I have some idea's for some pretties to go on it. Just haven't done that yet.


And this is the Car seat cover I made for the Babe. It's reversible. I thought since I was making it, I might as well just make both sides CUTE so I can have 2 in 1 right? Right! I love it! Sorry for the not-so-pretty pictures. This is the best I could get. The pink Fabric has little white polka-dots on it.


We are all ready for her to come! I can't believe she will be here so soon!!
