No-Sew Fabric Project

I love fabrics. One small problem, I don't know how to sew. But I won't let that stop me :-)

Here's a sneak peak of something I'm working on for the nursery...

Six "Fat Quarters" of brightly covered fabric:

Teamed with Six Embroidery Hoops...ta-da!:

I'm thinking that these *might* one day contain the letters of our little one's name.

Although we are not sharing names before birth (mostly because we don't plan to make a final decision until then!) I do have a little clue. Right now our top boy and top girl name both contain 6 letters and they share 4 of the same letters.

Any guesses?

Diaper Bag Reveal

It's here! My diaper bag from 1154 Lill Studio has arrived!

If you remember, my coworkers threw me a baby shower last month where I got to design my own custom diaper bag and I'm really excited about the results. I went a little pattern crazy, but I think it's very "me" and turned out well.

So without further ado...

Here is the front of the bag:

The back:

At my side:

I can't wait to put it to good use in just 6 weeks or so!

Snowbird Nesting

I took advantage of my first adult "snow day" and went into total nesting mode.

I'm on my fourth load of baby laundry, and as soon as the Internet started working again I also set out to search online for some finishing touches for the nursery.

We were in need of some throw pillows to coordinate with our color scheme that will line the West Elm Daybed in the room. I came across some great, brightly colored options at Urban Outfitters that fit the bill quite nicely:

I chose two of each of the pillows in the photo above: a. Hand Quilted Velvet Pillow in Orange, b. Round Pintuck Pillow in Yellow, c. Velvet Ruffle Pillow in Green and d. Hand Quilted Velvet Pillow in Turquoise.

And of course, I rarely like to pay retail price so I searched for a promo code. Right now if you spend $75 you get $15 off using promo code: "LOVEIT". Also, I got free shipping since my order was over $150. LOVE IT!


About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
