Busy Busy

I have been plugging away at my summer projects. I decided to start by painting the downstairs bathroom a nice roasted squash/pumpkin orange, which I have been doing for 5 days now during naptime and bedtime. After FOUR coats of paint on the walls and FIVE coats around the edges, I think I FINALLY have all the walls completely covered in orange. After this experience, I have decided that the next time I want to paint a finicky color I will get REAL primer and will NOT listen to the lady that says the primer stirred in the paint will do the same thing. *sigh* I still have to paint the ceiling and trim as well. I can't wait until the paint is all cured so that I can start hanging my new mirror and wall art :)

To take my mind off of the tedium of painting (and to avoid household chores) I decided to start working on Bug's fall/winter wardrobe. I have a ton of fun ideas, but it may take a while to get everything going. I started off with a cute little milkmaid skirt. She can wear it now, but in the fall I can see it being so adorable with some baby legs and a long sleeved top/jacket. I used this tutorial from crafterhours, and I am totally in love with this skirt!

I love how her hands were on her pockets in this one!

And a back view

Here is what will become my first tutorial on my blog! A headband with interchangeable embellishments.

And what good is having a blog if you can't post pictures of your kid just because they looked too funny.

I think Diva Natalie was quite finished with her photoshoot so she gave me the stink eye!
