Blake’s room

It’s not news to most of you that our house is TINY…but that doesn’t mean Blake doesn’t deserve his own space! Last weekend we rearranged our bedroom to see if we could fit a crib in there next to our bed. It didn’t look like it was going to work but we barely squeezed it in! It actually looks awesome and we are relieved that Blake will be able to stay in our room until he is sleeping through the night (which hopefully will be soon…I’m talking to YOU Blake!).

We framed a couple of post cards for the wall from the artist Junzo Terada, who is amazing!!! It a great frugal trick to cut apart books or frame postcards instead of buying prints that can be very pricey! We got the book of 30 post cards for $9 and framed 8 for Coens room and 4 for Blake’s and we have plenty left over to send out!




And here are some baby pants I made for Blake…using this tutorial. I will definitely make these again!

I’m off to work tomorrow…eeek!

    Kirsten, That’s a really sweet set up you have and such adorable pants. Just something about baby legs in those kind of pants, only babies can pull off that look.

    Room looks great lady!
    Glad to hear your mission was accomplished.

    I’m going to have to pick your brain about quilting once we have what we refer to as second room up and ready for my sewing machine. Hope your new routine gets easier.

    After the quilt project..I plan to tackle these pants. I see that the first step is to mirror a pair that fits your child well. Since the child won’t be here for some time..I guess this project will just have to wait. : )

    Loving your quilts, very inspiring!!!
