In love with maps

I have this love for old globes and maps. I think it is the color of them that pulls me in the most.  When ever I find a globe I think about who might have had it. Did they use it for homework or spend time daydreaming about the places they would like to go.  I keep most of my globes in our front room.  Matt likes to call it the home teacher room, I like to think of it as the room of knowledge.  It holds our piano, a lot of our books and my globes--all very loved.  Each and every one of them has a story.

The most unique globes I have found have been metal and two that are lamps.

I found these funky pillows at my bearded pigeon.  Of course I want some.  (I think I may have a problem)

This is a wall in my boys room.  It is a collection of old and new maps.  With a little wallpaper glue and some help from my good fried Melissa the map wall was done.  Some of these maps have been written on, people marking the route they would take.  I love it, I think it adds to the wall.

Baby Onesies

I made these onesies and head bands for my sister that is having a baby girl in April.

I love all the colors in this little outfit.  I love making the onesies but I don't think I will make any more little skirts.  I am not that much of a seamstress.

I did these onesies and matching hair clips.for my little nieces when Matt's brother got married a few months ago.

They all looked super sweet in them at the wedding!  Thanks Mark and Sarah for letting me make them.

I have been wanting to do this in my little boys room for a while now.  I found some frames at the D.I and painted them my new favorite green.  I had my friend Amberlee make the vinyl letters. You can visit   her web sight vinyl forest HERE.  Walt had a t-shirt with the big alphabet on it.  It was one of my favorite shirts. I was so happy I could make it huge and put it up on the wall.  I am loving the change.  It make's me happy every time I walk into his room.  I need to be better at doing before and after photos.  It wasn't that I didn't like the room before, it just got old to me.

I Need One Of These

 I found this on Crafty Nest.  It is a plastic wardrobe.  She uses it for a spry paint tent.  AWESOME!  No more taping off the garage or worrying about dust in the wind out side.
