Flickr Favorites - Home

After a long couple of weeks we are finally winding down.
We've gone to my hometown, to my husband's hometown, in the city, out of the city, you name it! I love being able to travel and experience lots of different things, but at the end of the day I am most excited to just be home. Home with my precious little baby boy, and two silly puppies. There is nothing better than that!

Flickr Favorites - Road Trippin'

What a week! I basically took a week off from life to get better from the worlds worst cold. I've now gone full force into packing mode because we are taking a mini road trip on Friday! It's not a huge road trip, but when you are cramming a 3 (almost 4!) month old in the backseat of a small car with two dogs, baby necessities, and luggage, it can be quite the ordeal!

We are going to visit some friends and family who live on the other side of the state. This will be their first time meeting our son in person. It is going to be so much fun, but boy is it a lot of work getting ready to leave!

Numbers & Trees

Why can't we combine the two!?

The weather has been so beautiful outside recently. All the trees are in bloom and there are birds and flowers everywhere! I've been enjoying soaking it all in so much so that I decided I needed to work on a bright summery print. And then I thought, why not include some numbers or letters on that print!? Well, the numbers won out and here is what I made:

I love The Numbers Tree print sooooooooo much!

Flickr Favorites - Under the Weather

I'm Sick.

Really Sick.
I want to curl up in a ball, hibernate, and not emerge until I'm feeling 100% better. Unfortunately little man still needs fed and changed routinely. I guess the show must go on despite how I feel!

Dudley & Homer

Dudley and Homer are the latest members of the super cool Monster Crew! There isn't too much else to say, except that these little guys are quite possibly my favorite items up for sale in the shop. One day I hope you cover little Rohan's room in his favorite monsters. I just need to wait patiently for him to be old enough to pick them out!

Here are the new dudes:

Mr. Homer - this dude is rotund!

Have a favorite?! (mine is franklin or ludo)

Flickr Favorites - Fabric

Oh the wonders of fabric!
I could spend hours in a fabric shop looking at all the colors and patterns. Problem is I can't sew. Not that I haven't tried. Oh I have sat down at that frustrating machine more than once. My lines aren't straight, corners aren't pointed, and whatever is in my head never turns out the same in real life.

Thankfully I can dream it up and my mom can sew it. In exchange I knit and/or crochet whatever she asks for. Because as luck would have it she hates knitting and crocheting but loves the finished products!

I wonder what fun project I'll think up next. . .
. . .have any ideas?!

Never Enough!

You know I can't help it. I love posting pictures of the fun bags my mom makes for her etsy shop. I have a case of sewers envy. Good thing she'll make things for me whenever I ask!

Here are three of the newest in her collection:

My very favorite actually sold before I had a chance to write up this post! But no worries my second favorite (and it was a very close second at that) is the gorgeous pink bag at the top made of Riley Blake's Summer Song fabrics. It's so summery and makes me want to get out and soak up that lovely sun! What's your favorite?!

House Pillows in my Home

So a while ago I posted about a new obsession of mine.

The House Pillow. Remember?

I just loved the idea of filling the little love seat in our living room chock full of house pillows. I wanted them big, pastel, and whimsical. And here is what I got thanks to some help from a certain sewer that I know:

We made 6 pillows in all, and I love each and every one. Though, if I had to pick a favorite it would be the tall one in the back left corner with a blue roof and pink door and window! Don't you think that certain sewer should make these for her etsy shop? I do!

And wait until you see the banner she made for my little Rohan's nursery!

Oh. My. Gosh.

Pictures very soon!

I had so much fun working on alphabet prints I thought why not number prints too!? Much like my Animals & ABC's posters, these are designed with numbers and animals. They work great as a solo print or combined with the ABC posters as shown below:

flickr Favorites - Shiny

At the beginning of each month, Miss Artmind tells us of a theme to use in our next flickr favorites (should we we want to, of course!) I think they are quite fun and always play along! This week's theme was "something shiny."

The first thing I thought of was twinkling stars which shine at night, or the way silverware shines after it has been polished. After having more than a few cups of espresso from the husband's new birthday present I also immediately thought of the pretty shine on his new colorful espresso cups!

But my favorite shiny thing? That would most certainly have to be the beautiful shine on a fresh skein of yarn, or even sewing thread. I'm a crafter at heart after all :)
