Easter Decor, Craftastic Saturday and Baby Update!


Gosh, it has been forever since my last post! So much has happened in what felt like one month but really turned into three. We have moved into our own home, followed by renovation then baby has been growing and will make an arrival in two months. 

I took a break from unpacking, painting, remodeling, cleaning, etc. to attend Craftastic Saturday in Menifee, CA hosted by the lovely ladies, Angela and Stacy. 

It was a day spent creating five fantastic crafts. I was lucky to have met up with Emmy again, we first met last year at SoCal Social. You can find her blog at EmmyMom.

We created five different craft projects, the first was this amazing pallet sign. After just moving I really didn't any Spring decorations so I set out to create some that could be displayed immediately. The sign took a lot of my time, so I didn't get time to finish my hexagon necklace. 


The other crafts that I was able to complete was an adorable cupcake stand, butterfly terrarium and Easter Inspired wreath. 


It was so much fun to create with amazing women, go home with amazing projects and a HUGE bag of goodies. And I also came home with two prizes, a gorgeous succulent from Livingstonhfob  and some delicious cupcakes that made the drive home extra sweet!


I was able to pull out some of my other belongings and created a cute Easter display on top of my china hutch. 


The Butterfly terrarium, pallet sign and Easter wreath looked fantastic with my vintage Gurley candles, fresh tulips and vintage garland that I picked up from Jane.com.


And back in January, before we moved I was able to make a few maternity tops from vintage patterns. I created this cute top from 1961 McCalls 6575 maternity pattern. 


The Craftastic Saturday was the perfect occasion to wear it. I paired the shirt with some maternity jeans and new retro wedges from B.A.I.T. Footwear

As you can see my belly is getting larger and I am really getting anxious and excited to meet my little bundle of joy. Really hope to post some more projects I have been doing for our nursery. 

Until next time...
