Successful Retreat!

We had a very productive holiday weekend this retreat. There were about 60 messages sent in of around 50 guests. The next holiday retreat will be in September for Labor Day Weekend. I'm thinking of taking that time to clean up, organize more, and do some stashbusting. Please put that on the back burner and I'll remind you when time is closer. THANKS to all who joined me!

Painting a Toy Box at 2:00am

Don't I look like I've been freehanding stripes for a few hours? lol

Maggie's Bedding

This nursery bedding was inspired by a pattern named "Delilah" from the Cocola Designers. The dust ruffle, bumper pad and quilt cost $275. I made everything here plus a cushion for the red rocker all for $80. The yellow is polka dot. Don't have a photo of the quilt with it yet. I already gave it to the Momma for her shower without getting a picture of it--but I will!
UPDATE: I just found out that Momma bought a dark wood crib to replace this one. I knew there was a reason why I didn't take a picture of the quilt before I gave it to her during her shower!

Painted Toy Chest for Carson

I painted this toy chest from the photo that was on the packaging of the bedding. I didn't see the quilt until after the chest was painted--so relieved it matched! This pattern is from a company called Cocola that makes designer baby bedding. Ironically, at the same time I made bedding for another expectant mom using that same company's version of "Delilah."
