Artsy Fartsy

Now that I am no longer going to any classes, I have decided to start doing some projects to keep my mind away from focusing on still being pregnant. I am proud to show off my first project of Aubrey's letter blocks. I still need to get some ribbon to staple to the blocks so I can hang them over her bassinet... other than that they are pretty much done. Unfortunately, I thought this would take me a lot longer; however I pretty much finished in just a few hours... now, I have to find more projects to consume my time! (Any Ideas?) I do have to say that it was really fun making these blocks; but who would know that it would be so complicated... so many choices! After spending forever on choosing the style of the blocks, I had to decide which scrapbook paper to use.... there were so many styles and prints that it was so difficult to choose from. After which, I needed to find paint to match. Hopefully, she'll be happy with our choices.





So I guess it's official that her name will be Aubrey. Wade said that I can change it as long as I can scramble her letters to come up with a different name. Not too many choices, we've tried. Also, hopefully she is indeed a girl; otherwise, our little boy will have to just like pink and green.

You could start work on a wooden growth chart with her name onit with pretty pictures onit You could even get a chest and decorte that and she'll have storage for baby books and things that are special to you guys or to her. That way she'll always have it maybe even hand it down to her daughter.
