Trendy Baby Burp Cloths Tutorial

I LOVE this idea! I remember burp cloths always managing to disappear and were never handy when a real projectile emergency happened. Since they were normally all white, they would get wrapped up in the blankets, sheets etc.  Attaching colorful fabrics to the burp cloths would keep them from hiding on you! Plus clean folded cloths will look so much better on a shelf in the nursery! You could even purchase fabrics that coordinate with the colors in the room.  Who doesn’t love a DIY affordable functional accent!

I found this tutorial  on a site called petitelemom.com. They seem easy enough to make and I so want to find the time to make them myself for my new grand daughter!

An Example of a Very Creative Etsy Seller

 Over the weekend I had a little shopping spree buying pretty things online for my new soon to be grand daughters nursery. I found this adorable old doll dress in a shop on etsy called curiouslypink. It has some worn spots but a cute piece all in all. Received it today and to my surprise the seller must have read my mind.

Attached to the package was this adorable little bag of buttons and thread to inspire my imagination! Love her presentation!  This is an example of creative customer appreciation found on etsy that you will not find anywhere else!! I took some of the buttons and placed them on the dress just to give you an idea. I will of course be adding some of my own embellishments. I can already see this hanging on the wall in our soon to be “cutest nursery ever” as my daughter likes to call it!!

Striped Walls for a Childs Room or Nursery

Ahh Striped  walls
Not the easiest thing to do with all the taping involved, but the
results are stunning candicenkatiesart.etsy.com

As you can see I am
a “paint in the round” artist but the crispness of stripes stand in a
league of their own.

I do include stripes in my art
because the combination of both is what makes a perfect design

Beautiful Tissue Flowers Which Include Tulle

Well my daughter is expecting my first grand daughter and we are knee deep in designing the perfect nursery for baby Keira. After all, in my business I have seen and designed to so many different amazing nurserys so this won’t be easy!!!  The hardest part for us was narrowing down all our options . We have selected the wall color and the bedding(believe me that was not easy either!) and now all the fun begins!!!

I will be adding the before picture soon so you can see what we are working with. I also plan on providing tips on how- to’s etc…..  We are all excited and can’t wait to share with everyone!!

Not sure if we are going to use these tissue flowers but I LOVE them! I feel like they are different from the normal flowers you see everywhere now. With the right color combinations, these can be absolutely STUNNING. The how-to came from a mom in Australia and you can find it on this blog  greedyforcolour.

Great Idea for Baby Onesie Age Photos

I Love to come across new ideas to try on my own. This is a great way to add your babies age to a onesie without having to order stickers which is the only way I have seen this done. You can actually go on photoshop and create this and I have included the tutorial to show you how! Since my first grandchild is not due until November, I would love for anyone who tries this to let me know how well you made out.  I would love to see photos of what you come up with! A great way to be creative!!
