Remember this little pretty? You know... the one I was
obsessing swooning over and finally got for Little Miss, courtesy my fabulous momma?
Well, last week I got in touch with my inner-Martha and whipped up a matching bird mobile to go with the theme. I improvised a little since Ms. Stewart's supplies were lengthy, specific, and more tedious than need-be. (Sorry, Martha) PLUS, I have the unfortunate pleasure of living near really crappy Michael's and JoAnn's craft stores. Hello?! I live in old-people-country South Florida you'd think the craft stores would be bangin' around here, no?
Anywho... here's the top of the mobile:
[I hot-glued all the flower pieces onto the already made white wired wreath]
I decided I'm going to hang it above the changing table instead, since there are little "crystal" flowers and balls, and I wouldn't want one accidentally falling off while she's sleeping in her crib.
Here are the little birdies that'll hang from the wreath:
[I made two of each color, and the bottom right is a light pink--it came out kinda funny]
Next, B and I teamed up to build the little babe's shelving/organization unit:
[I swear I helped. I was pretty nifty with the screw driver!]
[The little stuffed animal dog on the bumbo was my very first stuffed animal my mom ever bought me at Tavern on the Green in NYC]
Indy, of course, had to check it all out. I even caught him trying to steal the little caterpillar toy on the far left:
A hard day's work...
But a huge success! And an even bigger thanks to my ah-maz-ing hubby for helping me out... even after his big test that day.
[You're the best, babe!]
*Here's the template for the bird mobile, in case you're curious.*
