Le Petit Artiste

Finally Finished!

I have been playing around with this patter for a while now and I finially just sat my butt down to finish it.

This little artist tote is made from linen and cotton. It opens up so you can store both colouring books and pencils/markers. The pencil/marker area is made has matching colour co-ordinated slots for each coloured pencil/marker.

I think this is perfect for any petit Picasso.

It's now available for purchase in my etsy shop.

More Creations for the Bebe

Well, the room is almost finished. Just a couple more things to hang and of course a baby to give birth to.

This little quilt/storage wall hanging I made a while ago, I was just waiting for the right time to use it and it is. Each pocket has a letter of the alphabet, and I used a wooden large safety pin to hang it to the wall.

This hand-painted wooden mobile I bought off of Ebay for $11. It inspired me to make a circus theme baby quilt which you can see in the background.Here id our little change table where I am sure many diapers will be changed. The decals on the wall I bought from the dollar store. The great thing about these decals is that they are removable and will not damage the wall. The flower lamp and table itself are both from Ikea, and the great thing is you can take off the change table part and it becomes a dresser.

In this little corner we have some other baby goodies. The crochet doll made by my mother for me as a baby (33 years ago...eeks), her neck is a little weak. I think she is staring to show her age and may need a face lift.
This foam book was made by my sister and her boyfriend. It is all foam and has velcro moving parts. Inside are all the nursery rhymes and songs we used to sing as kids. There is also a CD which comes with the book that you play along with while reading the book. There is a little chime which tells you when to turn the page. I absolutely love it!
So you can see we have been busy, although as I have been told I will not know the meaning of busy until our little bundle of joy has arrived.

We Can't Wait! 2 more months and counting!

The Nesting Has Begun!

Well, the countdown continues...

As we start to wrap our heads around the fact that we will be joined by a little girl, the nesting has begun.


I decided to make this little container to hold all the q-tips, cotton balls, and cotton swabs. I actually bought this inexpensive little wooden box from Ikea and was going to use it to hold needles and pins in the sewing room, but I changed my mind.


I used some scrapbooking paper, ribbon and some stickers to create this little holder for our new baby girl's change table (which still needs to be built).

Overall, the room is still a bit of a disaster zone. We finally finished the painting (we had to do it twice...argh!) But as soon as it is all organized, I will post some photos for you all.

I hope the ultrasound is correct and it's still a girl...or we will have one confused little boy all in pink!
