I made this Dolly Bed for Jordyn a couple of Easter's ago for her Easter basket and this year I wanted to do something just a little different for Triniti and Tierni.
Pretend you can see double as you read this post because there are actually 2 of them that I made. They're both exactly the same (because Heaven forbid that one of them have something that the other doesn't) but I figured you didn't want to see double of everything.
I found two of these little baskets when they were half off.
Because I was making two of them at once and I was lazy that day, I didn't line the whole inside. I added fabric around the top and added ribbon and buttons to cutify it.
Then made a mattress and pillow.
And, of course, a blanket.
Next trip was to Target for new dolly's (complete with high chair and potty chair).
And the best thing of all, these will be their Easter baskets that I fill for them on Easter.
Is it just me or does that poor little bunny look awfully sad?
I'm so sorry I didn't get features up this morning. I had an early doctor's appointment and thought I had the post scheduled, but obviously, I didn't.
I had to meet with a hand surgeon because I've got trigger finger in my right hand. My middle finger, when I bend it, stays bent in and locks and I've got to take my other hand and pop it back. Greg keeps telling me that at least it's bending down and not up!
She said today that it's a pretty severe case and scheduled surgery for Monday. Can that be good? Surgery on April Fool's Day?
Hey, here's a way for me to quit thinking and worrying about it. Let's have a party!
Link up anything you want to share with us this week. It can be your fabulous craft, yummy recipe, giveaway, shop, etc.
I'll feature the Top 5 most viewed links next Wednesday.
I would love for you to follow A Creative Princess while you're here!
If you would like to grab an It's a Party button (on the sidebar) and post it on your blog somewhere, that would be great! Let's get the word out and grow this party.
The more the merrier!
We all love comments, so please visit other links and have fun!
I told you how Greg is in a major remodeling mood right now and I've got to say, this was probably the hardest project we've ever done!
We completely gutted the little bathroom that is off of our bedroom and put in everything brand new, including all the tile and bead board on the floor and walls.
The lowest estimate we had for this tiny room was $2500.00. You've got to be kidding! We did it ourselves for about $900.00 and that included everything. Like I said, it was hard work, but so well worth it!
I still need to paint the new door and frame and decorate the walls, but for the most part, it's done.
After all the hard work, there was no way I was going to let Greg drill or glue on that new tile for something so silly as a toilet paper holder.
I knew I had a basket with handles, so I grabbed it and...
bought a huge dowel, cut it to size, painted and added jute in the middle of it.
The dowel slips through the holes under the handles and the paper goes in the middle.
The best feature, the bottom of the basket stores extra rolls so you're never left stranded. (I think you now what I mean.)
Now, sung in my best Taylor Swift voice:
At least until we move on to the the big bathroom, which is next on our list.
We are a baseball family. When the boys were little, we spent all of our summers at the field. Josh went on to play baseball in college and Greg, Josh and Brandon were all on a softball team together for the longest time until Greg got too old to play. (Sorry, honey.)
Now it's little Jace's turn. I think that's the main reason summer is my favorite time of year.
Because this year Jace has his Dad and Uncle Brandon helping coach his team and his Papa will be pacing along the fence, I figured the least we girls could do was to add a little bling in the stands.
Their games start soon, so I've got to get busy working on our summer accessories.
First up, the Baseball Washer Necklace.
I did the basic mod-podging and adding Dimensional Magic, but I also needed a bail on the back. It's upside down because I wanted to hang a charm in the middle.
I hung the baseball charm to the bail and added the leather cord.
Hang on, summer, we're almost ready! Just a few more things to make.
Oh, and I need to stock up on sunflower seeds and pistachio's!
I would love it if you see something I’ve done and want to make one for yourself or give as a gift, but not to sell. Please link back and give credit where credit is due. I would like to see what you’ve done to make it your own (improved the idea). Thanks for visiting!
