More December Snow

Here are more of my photos from our snow week.  It is still hanging on out there, and actually creating some slippery ice as it is melting.  I still think it’s beautiful!


Book Nook


I used some of Alma’s nursery decor in her new closet book nook.  The bunting from Katrina, the wreath from Jacque, the quotes, and to mobile I made her came along to the new room.  I also covered crib mattress pads with fabric from her first year photos, made a tuffet using this tutorial out of some of those fabrics, made a book sling using this tutorial, and hung up her special Alma sweater.


New Nursery and Alma’s New Room

It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything on this blog…  Maybe blogging just isn’t me.  I really should.  Maybe I will get better when I have this next wee one.  probably not…

Anyway, we’ve been doing some work around the house to get ready for Baby Girl #2 (though I’m starting to panic that it’s really a boy and I’m not going to be ready for that… even though the ultrasound tech said she was 99.9% it’s a girl… and it didn’t matter to me last time and we didn’t even find out then…another story…).

Without further ado:

Baby’s Nursery (to see what it looked like before, click here.)


And Alma’s new room.  I don’t think I have any photos of this room before.  It was a guest room/ TV room.

I had a lot of fun with this room.  I hand-drew and hand-painted her world map, had fun with ombre on the dresser and ALMA letters.  I was going to do an ombre dye on the curtains, but chickened out – I am so glad I chickened out – in the end I love the dramatic white curtains with the coralish ties.  Alma really loves her new room!
