the marriage of PB & TJ

So I am "unofficially" done. I just want to thank all of you for your support. You have no idea how much you mean to me.

Ok...that being said, I still have 1 more final tomorrow, but I don't count it. Trust one counts it. :)

I want to give you a sneak peak of my butterfly project. It is to be a baby gift for one of my best and oldest friends, Christine. She is having her first baby. I am so excited for her! Christine is like a sister to me and so naturally I am wanting to spoil her and her little baby. I anticipate the day to love this baby girl as much as I have loved Christine.

Christine purchased 2 of these mobiles from PB Kids and it ignited a spark in me:

Because I also had fallen in LOVE with this at TJ Maxx and was dying to recreate my own version:

So throw in a dash of me (I am smitten with personalizing my pieces), the freedom of a few moments since I am DONE with finals, and we have the beginnings of a precious baby gift for my dear friend, Christine.

the yellow is so much softer in person..not glaring school bus yellow

I promise to give you more details and pictures LATER. When I get it done completely....and because I know Christine is reading this and I want it to be somewhat of a surprise. :)



  1. Whoo-hoo! You've made it to the homestretch!! I'm so happy you're allowing yourself some time to breathe and create...and I can't wait to see what you do with these beautiful little butterflies. What a sweet treat for a dear little girl!
    Cheers to YOU!

  2. You totally caught me!! I'm trying to sleuth! No luck!! Two things: (1) the crib is espresso, and (2) I updated the blog with pictures, but the "espresso" crib doesn't look really espresso. I does in person, though. Pretty exciting!!

  3. yay! glad you're done! :) Enjoy this beautiful weather!

  4. FUN FUN FUN! Is I have to say...I love this idea...Meme

  5. Oh I love the flutterbies! Congrats on being done! Enjoy your spring break and all the crafting projects!!

  6. oh i LOOOVE this!!! So beautiful! You are so talented! It just looks so full of life :)

  7. Congrats, E! This is so cute!

  8. And once again, you show your amazing talent! I can't wait to see more pictures because this looks absolutely beautiful! That is going to be one very lucky baby!

  9. hi e! i hope your finals went well:) thanks for your sweet comment today. i wish i had a paint sprayer, but unfortunately i had to painstakingly brush paint over the tables. it was really super duper hard, and if you could only see all the imperfections.

    as for the white paint, we used sherwin williams pure white. we really love it. it's very crisp and clean looking. just like the name suggests, it's pure white all the way. i also like dove white, which is a more muted white and not as bright. both are great! good luck choosing a color!

  10. Cannot wait to see...the teaser is great!

  11. When we have our first one (you know, if blogging still exists b/c it'll be awhile), I am totally going to shamelessly beg you for one of these.

    These delicate butterflies take my breath away!! They look like they're about to flutter acorss the page. Can't wait to hear the deets on how you crafted them--simply amazing.

    And is that your own handwriting? Poetic!!!! You put us all to shame, E. If I didn't adore you so much, I'd totally hate you. HA! =]


Thank you for visiting my little corner of the world. Your comments make my day a little brighter, so know I treasure each one. Thank you!
