I'm hosting a baby shower for a very sweet friend this Saturday. I have a lot to do before Saturday at 3PM...these pictures are giving me inspiration and visions of cuteness. I may not sleep tonight:-)

We're thinking about adding orange and white to our living room...
Just to brighten it up a bit...
And add a little life...
No, we won't have swinging beds in the living room...
But boy do I wish we could!

I finally finished cleaning and organizing the attic today. Thanks to a snow day last week and a few hours this afternoon I was able to check this task off of my "to do" list.

So, I don't live in Mt. Pleasant, but I am a mom and I have the hook-up! We had a great time eating, drinking and crafting. We painted and decoupaged little stools for our littles.
Some people cut out letters to put names on their stools...I decided to leave mine without a name. I made the stool for Lily, but Max doesn't need to know that:-)

I had big plans for this fabric when my mom gave it to me TWO years ago for Christmas. I was going to whip up Amy Butler's Lotus Brick Path Quilt...my first quilt...ever! No, I couldn't start with a small baby's quilt...that would be too easy! Instead, I cut umpteenbillion little rectangles and put them in a pretty basket to sit for TWO years.
This weekend I am going to begin the process of turning these rectangles of fabric into a beautiful--even if it's not perfect--quilt. I want to lay it across the bottom of the bed in my room/guest room. Hopefully the final product will resemble these:
(My lack of techy skills accompanied by quilt envy prevented me from making the two pictures above bigger.)

There are a lot of stressful, but fun changes going on in our house right now...here's just a little of what I'm dreaming of for my mudroom.
