In September, I was honored to be featured in a regional magazine here in North Carolina. WNC Magazine profiled my work in their designer collections. I was thrilled with the outcome, it's always exciting to see your work in print. You can read the full article here.
The hub went up the mountain and cut down a beautiful tree for us this year -- a nordman fir. It's just the perfect shape! I pulled out our vintage glass ornaments to decorate, I'm afraid in the years to come I might not be able to use them with a child running around but for now I will enjoy them :)
Here's my little decorating helper..
While I was pregnant, I lived by newborn essential lists and product reviews. There is SO much out there, I didn't want to waste money and I didn't want a bunch of stuff that went unused. Between baby showers gifts and online shopping, I aquired a good amount of baby items and there have definitely been a few essentials that have become my favorites..
Fisher-Price Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper - Love this thing...we scoot it all around the house and take it on overnight trips. It's portable and baby sure does find it to be super cozy.
Sckoon Booties - The ONLY thing that will stay on my babe's feet and they're also pretty cute.
Avent Soothie Pacifiers - It's a good pacifier, what else can I say.
Boppy - Comfy for breastfeeding, perfect for propping up the baby, and makes a good travel pillow for me :)
Boba Wrap - Baby wearing is one of my favorite things and once you can figure out how this enormous piece of fabric works..then you're in for a sweet experience.
Evenflo Glass Bottles - I picked up a few of these as back-up because they were small and super cheap -- they turned out to be awesome because they are simple with few parts to clean!
Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets - We use these to swaddle, as a nursing cover, as a blanket, etc... Super soft and a great size.
Motorola Video Monitor - An expensive item but so awesome. I love watching her wiggle around in her sleep.
