Mod Podge Madness.....

(Sorry I couldn't get a good pic without showing my fatness in the mirror. haha)
So it's been a crazy crafting time at the Barnes home lately. I found an old mirror at my parents house (ironically in the same shed that I found the old dresser in. It is apparently the place to find unwanted furniture treasures) that hadn't been used for MANY years and decided it might be fun to spice it up a little for Bryant's room. My mom and I found some cute fabric on sale and decided to try to paste it on with mod podge. I think it turned out pretty perfect (very whimsical. Love it). We added a green wooden border to the inside to finish it off (what do you think about the green mom?).
The next project was some wooden letters to go above the crib. I know I know very generic but I think it adds a little somethin somethin. Mod podge + cute scrapbook paper =magical-ness. Oh yeah.


And just for the heck of it I thought I would add a pic of the "gingerbread" (i.e. graham cracker) house that Travis and I made at a Christmas party on friday. Pretty sweet. It is the one holiday decoration in our house thus far. Yeah we suck. :)

Anyway, sorry if this makes no sense. I feel a little sleep deprived today!!

Ps. I am 32 weeks along TODAY! Bryant (according to babycenter.com) is 3.5 lbs and 16.5 inches long. Wow!!

bec, i love all of your nursery things! will you help me make some letters for Ellie's name? i'd love to do that for christmas for her. or at least just tell me how you did it :) and your decorated gingerbread house is more than we have....my mom brought us that santa wreath...(because she thought we were pathetic for not having anything up and decorated) but..i have to confess, it scares me every time i walk out the door, or come up the door. his face is like larger than life. sorry if it scares you too. anyway, i really just meant to say i love your stuff and somehow started talking about myself. yikes. hope you're feeling well, neighbor! xoxo
