What a lovely weekend it has been!  Yesterday, I attended a sweet shower for a friend who is expecting a little guy pretty soon.  I definitely took advantage of the situation.  Made tons of mental notes of all the gifts she got so I knew what to register for.  Then I spent the rest of the day with my MIL.  To say we shopped till we dropped is an understandment.  We looked at cribs at 2 different places ( I think I found THE one), and registered at one of the places while we were there.  The registering was fun!  Luckily green is my favorite color because we are now registered for tons of it! We moved right along to some clothes shopping!  Which is one of my favorite past times, but here lately it has been not so fun.  Well yesterday, it was fun! And overwhelming.  I have now been blessed with a whole new wardrobe hopefully getting me into and through the winter.  So exciting to actually have options when I look into the closet. (Hopefully I will have some pictures to show some of the cute new clothes soon)  I did have to say some farewells to some clothes and put them away for awhile.
Today has been church with a great sermon and then lunch with some family.  And of course I snuck in a little nap after church and then did some crafting for the baby's room.  I thought I would share with you the DIY steps with some pictures.  So here is the inspiration.

So here are the tools/supplies that you start with:
I found some fabric at Hobby Lobby that will match the bedding.  All different sizes of embroidery hoops (I started with 7 because I am not really sure where they are going to yet), scissors, a marker to trace circles and not shown hot glue gun.  I traced a bigger circle then cut them out and fit them in the hoop and tightened the hoop.
 This what they look like after that process.  The last thing I did was hot glue down the edges around the back of the hoop to give a clean finished look.  Like this! I can't wait to paint, so I can hang these up!

I worked on another DIY today too that isnt quite ready, so I will be showing you that later in the week. 

Have a blessed week!
