Making a proper introduction!

Ladies and gentlemen, I know I've had a very long hiatus from my blog. It's hard for me to believe since I used to live and breathe it! But so many of you were so kind to me and it was so much fun creating things to share with all of you! I just wanted to come back and introduce my sweet baby boy. While he's keeping me too busy to craft (except Project Life!), he is the most wonderful thing to ever come into my life. 

He's the happiest, sweetest, silliest baby I know. 

Here's my Sawyer.

Coming back from the depths!

First, I just wanted to say I've really neglected my blog lately. I know I have. It's no secret! The thing is, when I got pregnant, all I think about is this baby. I'm having a hard time finding motivation to craft at all! It's as if I lost my passion. Because it's been replaced by my little man. So of course my post now is related to him. I just wanted to show all of you my sweet little man's nursery. I suppose I have been crafting but just in different ways! So I thought I'd share my hard work with the masses! 

First is my frame wall! I LOVED how this turned out (I still need to add two more frames to the right of the big "S"). This wall cost me $30. I just went to Goodwill and got a bunch of frames and painted them. I filled them with woodgrain papers and other things I had in my craft room. It was a inexpensive and FUN project! 


The trees were a decal that I got from THIS Etsy seller. My mom made the bedding for me, since I didn't want a bumper she made teething rails covers. 


And of course I had to add a pic of adorable baby boy clothes. :) 



The quote above the glider says "Loved you yesterday, love you still, always have, always will." I used the top of a $8 Ikea table and used some foam stamps and paint laying around to make it! 


Lastly, I made this bunting for his window using the left over fabric from the bedding! The little white one is a woodgrain pattern! 


All in all, I love how it turned out. It's such a calming room and I find myself spending time in there just sitting. I really hope our Sawyer loves it as much as we do!!
