Some stuff for Claire and other news

I have had this very large canvas since before I found out I was pregnant with Claire, I had other plans for it, did it, hated it and took it apart... so yesterday I finally made great use of it. My sister and I stamped this lovely quote on it and made it ready to hang in baby Claire's room. I was looking for a quote to put on it and this one was the only one that seemed right to put on it. I want to teach Claire from a young age what is truly important in life. I LOVE how it turned out. I think she will too. :-)
As you know I have made a ton of flowers for Claire so obviously I needed a place to put them all, so with two kinds of ribbon, an old thrift store frame and a staple gun I came up with this little number to display her pretty accessories.
I have been looking at artwork on Deseret Book. com and have found some beautiful pictures of Christ with children, well I went to the store to get some and they didn't have any of the ones I had seen online BUT they had just one print of this one. I had never seen it before and am pretty sure it was made for my Claire's bedroom. I get teary eyed just looking at it.
A friend gave me a lamp to re-do. She knew I loved a fun project. It had a different shade on it and I couldn't really salvage it so I went to Goodwill and picked this one up, it was originally tan colored so I painted it, added some fringe and waalaaaa!! Perfection! I love free stuff! Well I have some very big news. Brett and I have been doing the whole house hunt for quite sometime and found out last week the bank accepted our offer. We are in the process of closing right now so hopefully it all works out! So I will now have a room to put all this stuff in for Claire! Can't wait! 32 weeks and counting!!

As of late...


Wow it's been so long since I have really blogged about something! so here it goes... I finished my internship at Fennemore Craig and miss it terribly. I worked with the BEST people! They threw me a baby shower on my last Friday and I got some way cute stuff! Any ways, since then I have been doing a few crafts all for my little girl Claire, above are some diaper wipe cases I made for my diaper bag, I'm keeping the black one and giving the red one away. So easy and so cute!
Below are some belts for my belly!! My sister in law Miranda and her sister made these so I had to join in! Thanks Myla and Miranda! Oh and my wonderful Mother and Aunt Julie for all the fabric!!!

Here is one of them on my ever growing belly! Love it!
Made some into a head band for myself....
And a few for Claire!
I also made these kind of flowers recently and am in love with how they turn out!! Again so easy and so adorable! I glued some on of her beanies to spice them up a bit! And yes here I am 29 weeks and 4 days pregnant! Large and in Charge!!
