Hanging Crib Letters

As soon as I knew I was pregnant I had to know if it was a boy or girl so I could choose a name. I have made several sets of hanging crib letters for friends and I think they all came out pretty gorgeous! Since I was told it would be a boy, I couldn't make it girly like the previous ones. Mr. J and I went back and forth on many names and finally knew Carter was the one! I didn't want a total themed nursery but I wanted it to have a theme, does that make sense? I choose Dr. Seuss! Who doesn't love his amazing books? My shower was also Dr. Seuss-y so I was lucky enough to get a few things for his room for the decor. I had two sets of Dr. Seuss books given to me. So I chose a book for each letter and started from there. I tore out pages that resembled the book title, so when you look at each letter you know which book it belongs to. Then I tore the pages to fit the letter and mod podged it all. It was so simple and I can change them down the line if I want too. I think they turned out wonderful! What do you think??

Our Computer Was Attacked!

Last night our computer got attacked by a nasty virus! I sat on the phone for over two hours til midnight last night trying to recover and save  but it was all lost. I had been working on my posts so I could have some ready but they were all saved on the desktop, so now I have to start all over! That's okay though because I have this new wave of inspiration going right now and I have been a crafty mama all week! Stay tuned for some great canvas projects this week!

I'm still around...

...just haven't been much up to blogging recently. I am starting school for the first time in six years and I am nervous and excited! I have all those butterflies about the new year. I have been enjoying one on one time with Baby J, he is so grown already, I'm going to miss things here and there and right now I just want to take it all in!So if I'm not back to it soon I for sure will be come September, I will have much more time on the computer but right now I just don't want to waste that time. Thanks for stopping by and I won't be much longer :)
