I love making my own custom curtains. They are very easy and can be customized to fit the window size and the decor of the room.

The nursery that I have spent a long time painting and the decorating was finally complete… except the closet was one ugly mess.

Our soon-to-be daughter (who will be 1/2 Navajo, 1/2 Caucasian) will be born in about 4 months and I have already started nesting, crafting, decorating, painting, etc. I like to get the nursery and big projects done early because towards the end of my pregnancies I’m very limited physically due to severe Pelvic Girdle Pain (often misdiagnosed
