What can I do today?

With all this rain comes great ideas! When I was 8 months pregnant with Allie, I became this creative monster, and now with all the rain I am stuck inside and starting to make more fun stuff! I have started this great wooden plaque for Allie Grace and I just painted it, so as soon as it is complete I will show you guys! I drew the monogram, but now I have to draw it on the wood. I just hope it comes out as cute as when I drew it on paper! I am going to use a soft pink to do the monogram and hang it with pink ribbon. I am going to put it on her door, of course now I will have to make 3 more for little A,Madi and Mallory!

I didn't leave Georgia out! I made this out of a Christmas box top and left over fabric. How cute will that be with a monogrammed G in hot pink! I so need a monogram machine! HMMMM...
I painted these for Madi, and now I am totally re-doing her room so guess what? I will have to repaint them again(they were black before this!). Oh well, I am sure I will have another rainy day to do that!
I painted this for Ashlyn and I still love it!

I love the letters. I am sure they will look great on the wood. I also like the canvas. I came over from Kelly's Korner and have enjoyed my visit. You did a great job on the swag. Isn't that Nester wonderful???
Blessings,
Linda

Hi Christen, sorry to leave this comment on your blog..our email can't send to comcast.
This is an easy problem to fix. Just change your template to
minima, then add the background. Also you can remove the top box to your sidebar. Do you have a different email I can send those directions?
Thanks,

Those are gorgeous! My own daughter's room is decorated in soft pinks and greens. If I'm feeling adventurous I might give this a shot.

Thanks for visiting my blog via your mom!
