Saw It Pinned It Did It

I LOVE making new pillows for my home. I actually saw these on Pinterest and decided to make my own and sell them.


I made these and put these on our bed.  I LOVE them! 

I'm also offering these on etsy for $8.00 each stuffed.

Saw It. Pinned it. Did It. Pillow Case Dresses.


I've been trying my hand at making these oh so well known pillow case dresses.  I love this one that I just made. Monogramed with a C for our baby girl Chloe.


This was my first try at making one.. I got the basics down on this one atleast. Wasnt nearly as cute as the other one.

You can find the tutorial here for the pillow case dresses.

Pray


How Pinteresting

Needless to say I cannot wait until I can wear normal clothes again.  Somedays I seriously don't even want to leave the house, because I cannot dress cute anymore. lol.  I dont want to go out and buy a ton of maternity clothes (super $$) and then not need them within 8 weeks, after baby Chloe gets here.
These are super inspiring outfits I cannot wait to start wearing :)








Invites


I am loving the baby shower invitations I had made. If you haven't done so you NEED to get with Megan from Perfect Printables for all of your invites, etc to be made. She is super amazing to work with! I have gotten multiple invites made with her, along with other custom printables for the shower :)

Nursery Sneak Peak

Sneak peak of the nursery for baby Chloe. We still have a lot to do, but we have a great start.


Still need to find a crib ruffle (skirt).. They are super difficult to find!


I love this cubical organizer. I placed hairs bows/bands, and hats in the top basket, socks and shoes in the left drawer, a few toys in the right drawer, and misc stuff like first aid kit, etc in the bottom drawer.


The basket is holding her baby blankets right.  The light will eventually go on a night stand next to the glider.  I'm in love with this dresser. I so happy we bought this one. It is super sturdy.

Crib - Target
Bedding - Target
Cubical Organizer - Target
Pink Fabric Bins - Target
Dresser - Target
Knobs and Light - Hobby Lobby

I think I might have this obsession with Target and Hobby Lobby :)
