This blog is for you Heidi!!

Okay, I am dedicating this blog entry to one of my best friends Heidi. She is the most creative person I know, and has inspired me to complete a few projects while I am out on maternity leave. (Katie, you give me inspiration too!) You can check out Heidi's stuff at the craft monkey blog at . I still have several projects that I am working on, but with a baby, it gets a little difficult to be crafty. So here you go Heidi, thanks for motivating me to do something with my spare time.

These are the flower pots I made for Chloe's Baptism (more to come on that in a future post). I made really cute ones with crosses in the middle but I gave them away before I got a good picture of them.

I found this frame at Marshalls for $5.99 and fell in love. It has the same kind of design as Chloe's nursery, but it was the wrong color. So I used the same color that I used on her walls, added brown to the scrolls, and it matches her room perfectly!!

Heidi, I took this picture so you can see that I use the wipe box you made me, haha.

These are the famous mercury pumpkins that everybody was making this year. Thanks Heidi for guiding me the right direction on the paint.

This is probably my biggest accomplishment, only because my husband said that I could not do it. I originally tried stenciling a border in Chloe's nursery with regular paint and no knowledge on what I was doing. It was a disaster. With Heidi's motivation, a little research on how to properly stencil, whaaa la, I figured it out! Oh, and I totally bedazzled my wall with rhinestones, do you see them?? When David saw it he was like "I know you did not just bedazzle our wall". I was so proud that he even knew what bedazzled meant, haha. PROGRESS!!

Bad picture, but there is one on each side of the "you are a dream come true". Heidi, do you like my new rug?? It took me forever to find a rug that matched her room perfect!

Current projects I am working on is a door hanger for her room, a thanksgiving banner (very different from anything I have seen), and some odds and ins Thanksgiving projects. Of course this all depends on how much SPARE time I can really squeeze in.
