This is a blanket that my mom was given when I was born. It is darling! It has four squares that hav pockets for a little doll to go in. One that is a cradle, tub, buggy and highchair. So cute! But I guess I was a little hard on the doll - very well loved. So my mom kept the blanket for me, but not the doll. So, I made a doll myself. I had no pattern or guide or anything. I made it up. And I think it turned out pretty cute.

The Jungle Room

I love having a house for so many reasons. One reason is that I can decorate it however I want. I have had so much fun doing Landon's room-to-be. Right now we just call it the jungle room. I have always thought coloring on the walls would be way fun. Actually I got a chance to do that a little when my parents let me redo my bedroom when I was sixteen, but now I have a whole house I can color on the walls in! Okay, I don't really color on the walls. But it has kind of felt like that as I have been painting the mural in Landon's new room. Now I just hope Landon doesn't get any ideas about adding to the picture, he did watch me do part of it.

The Mural:

The rest of the room:

This is just as you walk in.

This is the awesome quilt my mom made for him.

I love the bamboo and I made the curtains.

The bookcase with all his jungle stuffed animals.

Now I just have to get up the courage to let my little baby sleep in a big boy bed in a big boy bedroom. :( I just don't want him to grow up!

For my kiddos

For Landon:

This is one of my favorite projects. And it was super easy. I love to do things for Landon, but it seems like there is so much more out there for little girls. So, I was thrilled when I found this idea here for little boys! I love the way it turned out and can't wait for him to wear it.

For Lena:
I still love making things for little girls too. I made this dress out of the exact same fabric used for my bridesmaid skirts and groomsmen ties when we got married in August 2005. How fun is that?! My mother-in-law still had some that was left over, so when she found out I liked making dresses for my baby-to-be she gave it to me.
