Mainly, I've just been finishing up projects that I know I'll never finish if I wait until after the baby comes. I don't have any idea what life with two is like, but I imagine any "me" time will be even further decimated, at least for a while.
The gourds that I bought with my birthday money last year (I'm a dork, I know!) got left out in the yard all winter to rot. Not on purpose, but that's just what happened. So this summer, a beautiful, healthy gourd plant started growing on the side of our house, and so far we have three mini pumpkins! Cute, huh? I just really like the fact that they came from our yard!
I saw these great fabric covered block letters at Anthropologie a few months ago, and determined I was going to figure out how to make them. I never did find any 3D letters, so I settled for these flat ones that I could hang on the wall, and affixed scrapbook paper with spray adhesive. Not the best quality picture, but they do have interesting patterns.
The St. Louis Cardinals pennant was left by the previous owner, and so we used it in Benjamin's room. Cute story: I checked out a Baseball ABC book at the library for Benjamin (which I subsequently had to renew for him), and he literally memorized what every letter of the alphabet stands for. So he has a pretty advanced baseball vocabulary now: "Autograph, Babe Ruth, Cap....Logo...Pennant...Vendor." He even points out the correct logo and says "St. Louis Cardinals." Too bad we never made it to a game this season! Hopefully next year.
Here is the cow jumping over the moon picture from "Goodnight Moon" that I finished a while ago, but never framed. It's just acrylic paint. He likes it.
