getting it all done

I am wrapping up ALL my projects this month as I prepare to pack up all things crafty and say goodbye to it all for a few months.
Realistically, I don't think I will be crafting much of anything till after the new year....
unpacking and settling in seems to take me a LONG time, and since we are downsizing to a smaller place in Texas, organization will be imperative
(and if you know me, you know this is a challenge!!!!)
so I am getting it all done,
wrapping it all up,
and purging like a crazy person...my sis would be proud!

With that being said, I took on a sewing project for an OLD High School girlfriend who is expecting her first baby and wanted me to sew up a crib skirt, bumper and pillow for her little Jude.
I didn't think I would ever want to do another baby bedding set again after I finished little Stella's last year, but I guess it was just time to give it another shot

(much easier the second time around, btw!)

I was happy to do it, as keeping busy is the name of the game right now.
Here is what we ended up with.
The crib skirt was done in the striped fabric.
I really love how it turned out, and I hope little Jude will love his new crib as well!

Since Riv and Paige will be sharing a room with twin beds at our new spot in San Antonio, I knew I needed to change the bedding we had going on in each of their rooms...
Paige's = too girly : Riv's = too baby and crib sized....
so I came up with these fabrics, and I love how it all turned out.
They are twin sized, so they are quite large but hopefully
the kids will have them for a long time!

I want to get some cool artwork for the room too.
So far I have my eyes on these:


Modern Pop




This is my inspiration room...I just love everything about it!!
(don't remember where I snatched this picture from...maybe designsponge? Sorry!)

ALSO, no real update on Justin other than I think the luxury of ALL that "time to yourself" has worn off, and he is missing his family a lot.
(I don't blame him....we are pretty cool!)
He is running/working out/swimming/reading a lot to stay occupied...and just anxious to get to the halfway point so we can start to count down the weeks.
We miss him terribly, and pray for his health and safety everyday...he is a great Dad and an amazing husband. The Air Force is lucky to have him!

  1. It was fun to read that the kids will be sharing a room. I still have nothing on Ross and Ruby's room walls.... a year later they are still bare it's so hard decorating for both sexes. We of course LOVE the quilts, Ruby calls it her silky and has to sleep with it wherever she goes. It's just Ruby in there now, but I just can't find anything that I like....good luck with everything. Love ya

  2. I am IN LOVE with your inspiration...saving it for me! You have to show us a picture of the complete room when you guys get settled in!

    Glad Stella's bedding didn't keep you from making another set... your work is too good!

  3. LOVE all your work!!! You are amazing at it and have such a great eye for color! The design room is great!! xoxo

  4. LOVE all your work!!! You have a great eye for colors!! xoxo
