simple things

We only have a few more days until this little man is one. The baby phase is quickly moving away, and the toddler phase is ready to take over. I have cherished every moment of this time with our little man. Each stage has been a joy. Now that he is beginning to walk, I know this phase will only be around for a little while longer. I want to make sure and capture as much as I can of him right now. So, I spent some time capturing him in his crib, catching these precious memories of him standing up, smiling at us, as we come in to get him after nap time. These are the moments I will look back on when he is throwing a tantrum or bringing home his first girlfriend. I know I will be glad I have these pictures then!

We are so happy to finally buy a new couch. It has been five years of us waiting for this moment. In honor of our new couch (which came today, yay!) I wanted to add a new pillow. So, I made this one.

DSC_0161I really like all those wreath designs with sayings that are really popular on the internet and pinterest right now. So, I thought, why not make one on a pillow? I embroidered the wreaths and flowers. I wanted to tie in the coral curtains and frames with the couch, so I made sure the back of the pillow had a coral print. I cut the words out of black felt and glued them on with fabric glue. It was great that I happened to have all the supplies at home, so it cost nothing. Score! DSC_0133 DSC_0138

Now, I can’t wait to make another pillow. I’m excited about the new design I have come up with.
