She's Here!

My daughter Amelia was born on Sunday!  We are adjusting well to having her home, and I think I will be wanting to start some holiday projects pretty soon.  I am also excited to start on the pennant banner of her name for above her crib in the nursery.

I am starting to get really excited for the Christmas season!  I saw this project on Studio 5 today about decorating with branches, and I'm starting to feel the spirit of the holidays.  I'll have to be on the lookout for some great branches to glitz up.

My husband surprised me with an early birthday present last week: a new laptop!

Wahoo!  Now I can blog while my husband does his homework.  I haven't put my project to-do list up lately, and I've finished some more things, so here's the current list:

Make fabric boxes for the new changing table
•Finish fall wreath
•Paint birdcage cream or light yellow
•Find a buffet to paint for the dining area
•Get chairs for the front porch
•Get potted plants for the driveway
•Build shelves on either side of the washer and dryer
•Take door off coat closet, paint, and put cubbies inside
New couch pillows
•Install wall shelf in main bathroom
•Refinish piano
•Make some green frames to match green stained table
•Fix leg on green table
•Get or build a picnic table for the backyard
Sew kitchen curtain
•Sew changing pad covers
•Make flower hairclips
•Turn craft room into nursery
•Laundry room makeover

CONGRATULATIONS Audge!! She's just beautiful! And you're so ambitious especially after just having a baby. I feel like taking a nap after reading your list. And I seriously wish my house to do list sounded as fun like your's. I'd much rather be making pillows and painting table legs than installing a ceiling's worth of drywall :/
