I thought it would be fun to do a little recap of all the pins that I have actually accomplished, so here goes. Oh. Admittedly I am a huge lame-o because I haven't taken pictures of hardly any of the things I have done, so all you get are the pics from Pinterest. So sorry.
Under the sink organization. I bought two metal mesh ones from Ikea for $6.99 and it fit all of our plastic wrap, foil and plastic bags. It is such a small thing but a really great organizational improvement for us! I HATED sorting through all those boxes just laying in the cabinet.
I lied. I do have one picture example but it is actually something that I posted in my last blog. I saw this picture on Pinterest, but for some reason I did not repin it so I am very sorry but I cannot give the originator credit:
As soon as I saw it, I had to do it for my Goddaughter and also for my Josie. I whipped these up on Picnik in just a few minutes.
(Did I ever share these photo shoots with you? I was pretty proud of both of them. And did I share how I made Josie's tutu?? SUPER easy.)
Adorable jacket pattern for a baby girl. I am not much of a sewer (it really weirds me out that that is the right word, btw) so I commissioned one of my best pal's best pal to make it for me! I bought the pattern, now I just need to buy the fabric and send it to her.
Just realized that I lied again. I have another picture! Check out this sweet idea for a baby boy photo:
It was my smart hubby's idea to use felt instead of construction paper, in order to eliminate any potential glare. Here are some of the pics we got last weekend when I took my ridiculously ADORABLE nephew's 6-month pics:
Unfortunately, I didn't get as many good ones from this as I had hoped. #1 The tape was not sticking well to the felt or the binky - I wish I would have given that a little more thought and tested it out beforehand and #2 The hubs made them for me and didn't really take into account the size of the baby's face so they were a little large and his nose was covered too much in most of the pics. He also cut out a fu-man-chu, but due to the problems I just listed, it just didn't work. Case in point:
Fortunately, they plan on having a Duggar-sized fam so I am sure we will have another little to give it a go on.
As it turns out, this post is getting pretty long and I haven't even covered half of it! I will be back to finish up later - hope you enjoyed!
