The nursery is done! 40 weeks TODAY! :)

Today, November 29, 2011 is our little one's due date! :) Although, he hasn't made his debut just yet, we are ready and waiting to see his sweet little face! I wanted to share the rest of the nursery details we finished and just about 90% of the nursery is done using handmade details by both my husband and I.
I shared our tree made with fabric leaves in a previous post HERE
Now, here's the rest of the nursery photos!


Here's the mobile I made just yesterday to hang about his crib :)

Buntings above his closet.
I bought these for the baby shower & decided to put them into use in the nursery! I bought them from Oliver Blue Designs.

I painted this frame a while back and added "you are my sunshine" lyrics to fabric for the back. Here's the post I featured including DIY instructions :)
So, it's all done and ready for our little guy to move into whenever he wants to arrive! :) Now, time to rest for a bit...

Pumpkin Spice Latte & Freshly Painted Nails

It has been a crazy week & I decided that this afternoon I needed some "me time" so I painted my nails & sipped on a Pumpkin Spice Latte :) Ahhhh....
Being 38 1/2 weeks pregnant is really taking it's toll--not only on my body but also my emotions and stress levels. Like I said, this week has been a crazy one & for some reason I really haven't had any motivation to start any new projects. I have been so tired just waiting for our little man to finally make his appearance! Next week though, I have some orders to send out in the mail & I'm really excited about new projects I will also be starting :)
Now, it's time to get ready to attend a beautiful fall wedding! I also created the bride's fall-inspired hairpiece (complete with ivory flower, fall leaves & a gorgeous crystal brooch for the center) and I'm so excited to see how it will look with her gorgeous dress!

Another custom order scarf done! :)

I must say, I really love all the scarves I have made so far & this one is no exception! I just want to keep every single one but I know giving it to someone else who will love it just as much--is the right thing to do I guess... LOL!
I got a message the other night to create a purple one for a friend & since that was all the detail I was given, I went to the fabric store, bought some SUPER SOFT & COMFY purple flannel fabric and used my own creativity for the rest! Here's what I came up with! :)

I was going through all of my different fabrics and details I have stocked up and found this wonderful lace applique!I bought it a while back when I was in LA at the fabric district and thought it would go beautifully with the purple scarf. So, I took a picture of it, sent it to my friend & she loved it as well! Afterwards, I got to sewing and finished the scarf off with 2 vintage-inspired pearl buttons to be worn attached or detached! :)

{This is when I wish my mannequin wasn't purple...but you can get the idea...}

It's so pretty right? Do you see my dilemma when I don't wanna give it away? Haha! Well I know it will be in good hands soon!
Thank you Rachelle for letting me create a scarf for you! It will be keeping you warm soon! :)

These scarves are only $20 + shipping for a limited time so hurry!

Newest scarves done!

I have been creating scarves like nobody's business this past week! I have finished 3 more and I'm working on 3 custom orders already...& I haven't even "officially" made them available yet! :)
By the way...today or tomorrow, my scarves will be up on etsy to purchase for $20 each for a limited time! They will soon be going up to $25 so purchase them while you can before the price increases! I will also only be taking a VERY limited amount of custom orders only because, as most of you know, our little one will be here VERY soon and I won't have too much time to make so many .
Well, here are a few more that I have completed!

This blue scarf was created using 71" of super soft & comfy rib knit fabric made up of 95% cotton & 5% spandex. I also sewed 2 antique lace doilies to add femininity & 2 vintage-inspired pearl buttons. With the added buttons, you have your choice of wearing the scarf as an infinity scarf or leave the buttons undone and wear it with both ends hanging down--whatever you prefer! :)

Another scarf complete & ready to be added to the etsy shop is this lovely gray & red scarf with added silver detail!

I created this scarf using 71" of 100% cotton fabric with 3 added red cotton poppies sewn onto the gray and red striped fabric. For the center of the largest poppy flower, I added an antique silver button & for the smaller poppies, I sewed 3 small gray pearls to the center of each. Also, at the end of the scarf, I sewed 4 large gray pearls to be used as "buttons" to attach or detach the scarf. That way, you can wear it as an infinity scarf or keep the scarf un-buttoned!

Another scarf I completed is this blue rib knit scarf with added ruffles and silver antique buttons!

I used the same soft blue rib knit fabric as the lace one above to create this lovely little scarf which measures 70" in length. I added a little canvas ruffle to the scarf (I'm a sucker for ruffles) to add a bit of color to it including yellow, gray, ivory, & aqua. I also sewed 3 antique silver buttons to the end of the scarf as well as 3 loops of ivory threaded cord that can interlock around the buttons for versatility! :)

& here's a little sneak peek of a custom order I just finished...
