Pinterest Made Me Do It

Like so many others I have become addicted to pinterest. After pinning all these cute ideas I decided it was time to do some of them. My first project was some baby name art. I was just going to by it from the etsy seller but she had closed her store for the time so I decided to do it myself with a little bit of help from Jacob. The finished canvas.

The next project involved my wonderful dad. Jacob and I had left some boxes at my parents house so they were kind enough to rent a truck and bring it out to us. Before trekking from WA to NM I asked my dad if he could make me a headboard and sent him a few pins I liked. This is the finished project 

Pretty amazing I think! My dad is awesome with his hands, not only can he work on teeth but he can draw, paint, and do woodwork. Now I just need a better duvet cover.

The next project also involved my dad. He made me a pallet shelf which I am loving. I still need to fill it with pictures though















While my dad was hard at work My mom and I got to decorate Matea's nursery. We started out by making a mobile using an embroidery hoop, paper, fishing line, and ribbon.




The next project was some wall art made from embroidery hoops and fabric. I love how it turned out.








There are still a few more pictures to be hung and boxes to be organized but Matea's nursery is now a cute and happy place to be.

I already have more crafts from pinterest to do so I better get started.

We had a great time building and crafting with you!
And you got the best pallet-- when we went back to get mine for the cabin--not quite as good!!

You found some terrific ideas -- and I might steal a few!!

Clever clever daughter!!

WOW! I am so jealous that you have a whole room for Matea! It looks fabulous! I can't believe how good everything turned out. Ron is amazing - I am hoping the handyman/artist genes rubbed off on the next few generations of Maxfield men.
