Crafty Projects

When most people find out that I am having another girl they give me the "oh, that's ok. are you happy?" Believe me when I say that I am 100% ok with having ANOTHER girl! I love all the pink and dresses and bows and everything girly that comes along with having another girl! With Lillias I really didn't go overboard with clothes and accessories, but this time around I have to admit that I might have gone a tiny bit crazy....
I have been working on some projects to finish the nursery and one of them was to frilly-up the barebones white lamp I bought to go on the side table. The nursery colors are pink and brown so I used a sheer pink fabric and pink toile along with some brown flowers cut from brown felt. With the left over supplies I made a headband modeled by Lillias that will be for Adelaide, since my sweet 2.5 year old refuses to wear anything in her hair for longer than a minute. {No joke, really a minute, this photo-shoot lasted ONE minute!}
Making my mom proud for all those times she showed me to sew, I actually threaded a needle, sewed on the pearls and then sewed the flower to the headband! Yay!
I really like the finished product, kinda shabby chic.
