wednesdays of {whimsy}

So I dusted off my sewing machine and used it for the first time yesterday since a few week's before Button's arrival. I'm not going to lie, it was AWESOME. Mostly I kind of felt guilty because Button is a little fussy/cholicy/refluxy ALL THE TIME so I let a bottle and blanket propping it feed her while I crafted. It was that or throw myself into the trash bin outside, so I opted for the former. I was working on my skirt project and a few others I hope to have up soon. Till then, check out these AWESOME projects (p.s. I like the word awesome):


Aren't these Tissue Paper Cherry Blossoms from Sarahndipities awesome?? These are so going in Button's nursery.

I'm a sucker for anything 'owlish' and these darling softies from Perfect Chance Memories are no exception. I especially love that they are completely vintage- made from her Grandmother's old fabric.


 Um, heck yes. This darling button egg on burlap idea from Auntie Lolo Crafts is spectacular! Mostly because it's made of buttons. Which I love. Always. It just inspired me to do something similar...but with a bird. Just great!

Thanks for your awesome projects, be sure to grab a button. I love scoring around for ideas and seeing the ones that have been sent in. Happy Wednesday!

I love that you took some time for yourself! When my kiddos were babies I often had to prop feed them (there were 3 eating at once, but I only have 2 hands!). Sometimes I would just sit back and relax, knowing it was one of my only chances through the day!! ;o)

Oh I know the feeling! All to often did my little L get handed off to Daddi-o as soon as he came home from work, and I'd shut myself in the office (craft room heaven!)... I still do that now to think of it (5 months going strong)... great idea using the tissue paper! :D
