Just a few things I have made around the house lately. Nothing exciting.
For Easter I made this little banner with this font that I just love. I added some colored circles to the flower parts to add a little bit of color to it.
And though we all wore clothes on Easter, we didnt take any pictures at all, so this is all I have to remember Shea's first Easter. #momfail
On my other mantle I got super excited and bought these letters from land of nod to stuff with flowers like this. But it just did not look that good. I want to try again, maybe with skinnier letters? Or just one? I still love the idea but it was a bust. So, I just strung them on fishing wire.
Then I made shea a onsie out of the same fabric that I used for her sheets but in the knit.
and she is showing it off with her best rabies face.
I made her a few more dresses out of my spoonflower fabric and it is just so fun. The knits haven't been that hard and its so forgiving with a baby. I dont know if I could do kid clothes but I am def going to give it try...soonish.
You are welcome for the awesome quality phone pics.
I also have been taking my designs from my spoon flower fabrics and putting them up at my own page on society6.com,
which is a website for real artists who upload their work and people can buy them in prints or phone cases or pillows or shirts. I am in NO WAY A REAL ARTIST at all, but I do like being able to make a rainbow and put it on a phone case or baby onsie for shea. Jeff even got excited, and now everyone can have their very own silent night outdoors phone case.
I ordered a rainbow case and a few pillows too.
I am really not very good at any of this stuff- designing fabrics or phones or sewing or printing or knitting, but I just love doing it. I guess thats what this is about, this whole blogging thing. Getting inspired by what other people are doing and trying to make it your own. Random tangent. I dont know. I just know that doing these little crafty things make me so happy- even though I am not an artist or a "creative" or anything like that. Just a mom, standing in front of a computer and editing photos of fake ikea flowers. (ok I am sitting and thats a terrible notting hill reference. Maybe I should stand at a computer. That would help with this baby belly I cant lose. Sorry. I'm clearly too easily distracted these days.)
