WhatIWore: Today I feel so good - about myself, about my pregnancy and about life in general. I’m developing a personal theory about what makes for a good day for me. It’s a three pronged approach - I need to feel confident about myself, do something productive and spend time being creative. Together those three things always fill up my tank.
WhatIWore: Now that I have a good idea for the color palette and overall feel for our baby’s nursery, I’m excited to start in on DIY projects for the room. The starting point for it all was the rainbow triangle quilt I recently made as the main focal point and pop of color.
I plan on doing some wall art, making a pillow to match the quilt and today, I’m updating a very inexpensive little wastepaper bin to match the colors and triangles of my quilt. I have a kind of bad habit of just hanging plastic bags on the back of my upstairs doors (nursery, closet, master bedroom) and using them to collect the recycling instead of proper trash cans. This leads to the two bins I do have (in the bathroom and my office) being over filled (and thus resorting back to the plastic bags). If there was ever a time to work on organization and getting this house in gear, it’s now!
So! Let’s get moving with this cute little craft!! Here’s what I’m using:
WhatIWore: Life is good! Here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to lately. Tis the season for fresh flowers! I picked up sunflowers at the farmer’s market a couple weekend ago and then treated myself to some grocery store flowers last week. While everyone else enjoys summer cocktails, I’ve discovered lavender soda, which is my new favorite treat! The baby’s nursery is coming along nicely! I found some cool pom pon trim and made it into a bunting banner and am also working on a pillow to match the quilt I’ve already completed. Because we don’t know if we’re having a son or a daughter, I’ve felt like I can make much for baby to wear… until Adam reminded me that every baby needs some snuggly knits! This little hat was my first wearable project for our bambino. Finally, Bloomington in the summertime is my favorite place in the world. I love it here!
I hope you had a lovely weekend! I’m looking forward having our nursery painted, making curtains and our crib is set to arrive tomorrow!
