New Work (Part V)

This is something I've wanted to do for a long long time.
I have always loved my alphabet prints, and wanted to somehow work them into more of a poster style print. Here is what I came up with:

What do you think?!

Flickr Favorites - Nesting

It's true what they say.
The end of pregnancy brings on many things, including a need to clean! I have been busy sorting, stashing, dusting, arranging, you name it. With my little bursts of energy I feverishly organize some area of the house, and then promptly pop myself down on the sofa for a much deserved rest. Then get up and repeat.

The end is near folks.

Flickr Favorites - Stand Still

36 weeks 4 days
That is how pregnant I am.

I almost feel like I can't remember a time when I wasn't pregnant. It's so hard to believe that in a matter of weeks now it will all be over. That the little boy who is forever kicking away at my rib cage will be in the outside world, and that I will be his mother. Reminders are sprinkled all over the house in the form of bottles, strollers, baby hats, and blankets.

And while part of me is deathly afraid of being in charge of his little life, another part of me can not wait to begin it! I am walking around in almost constant pain of some sort, and while I've had an easier pregnancy than some women, I am ready to be done (and back to a normal diet!). If there are any baby whisperer's out there, please let my little guy know I'd like to have him a little early please. If he cooks too long he's going to present his mom with some serious challenges the doctors don't want her to face!

New Work (Part IV)

I told you I had a lot of new work to show!
Today it is more floral prints. I haven't made new floral prints in so long, and recently I had just felt like creating some new ones for the shop. I am really happy with how these have turned out:

Grow With Me

What do you think?
You can find these as well as the rest of my floral prints here.

The nursery is finished.
I must say I am quite pleased with how it turned out. It is bright and cheerful and fit for a boy without screaming, 'I'm a boys room!' (I don't hear any screaming at least) :)

Here are some other pictures:

Rocking Chair, with blanket crocheted by yours truly.
I also have some of my prints on the wall. The deer pillow comes from Olive's Etsy shop, while the brown dog is a long dog kit from June Craft's etsy shop.

The crib adorned in a hand made quilt by my mom (owner of Pine Hill Forest). Don't you think she should offer up some of these beautiful quilts for sale? I am in love with them!

Close up of the quilt:

Now all we need is the little boy to make his appearance so we can put him in there!

New Work (Part III)

This time the new work is not my own.
It is actually the work of my mom, creator behind all the lovelies over at Pine Hill Forest. I just updated her banner for her, and took the pictures of her newest line.

I am so in love with her newest creations, and own about 5 of them myself. These little zipper pouches have been my life saver when it comes to keep my knitting needles and notions organized. I'm also thinking I need a custom little one to have in my purse to hold the all important chap sticks and lip glosses that I can never find.

The new bags:
Aren't they the cutest!? (confession. I'm in love with the little blue dog on her blue floral pouch!)
Keep on the look out for more new bags to be listed in the shop soon!

Flickr Favorites - 2011

This week Mitsy of Artmind asked us to create a mosaic of what we would like 2011 to be for us.
There is only one thing on my mind these days, and that is the impending arrival of my little one.

All I want for 2011 is the safe arrival of my little baby boy, and a whole year of the memories he will bring. I have 6 teeny tiny weeks left until my due date, and I'm ready now more than ever for our lives to change forever in a way that can't even be put into words.

Want to check out some other mosaics?
Head on over to Artmind's blog and take a peak!

New Work (Part II)

Listening to the Ocean Version 1 & Version 2

This time the work is more of a 're-do' rather than a completely new design.
Originally all of my floral prints were offered in an 8"x10" size, and over time I decided I would rather have them be 6"x6" like the rest of the prints in my shop. All of the floral prints had been switched in size except for this print.

I have finally resized it and added a second color option, the blue, which I adore!
