I'm Crafty!

I made this last night!

It's the mobile for Emberlynn's room!  No music or sound or spinning but thats what those projection machines are for :)

It took about 3 hours start to finish and I am SO in love with it.  I cannot wait to start the finishing touches and then post the nursery photos (and maybe the basement ones too!)

I used my Cricut machine and cut out the elephants out of cardstock (the same that I used for her name letters) and then strung them with my hubby's fishing line using a needle and thread and some pretty jewels and pearls that I found at Michaels.  I did different patterns and sizes and then organized them on the wreath ring I also purchased at Michaels.  Finally I took some ribbon and cut them all the same lengths and then tied them on the ring to hide the crazy fishing line.  All that I have left is to paint the most beautiful wall mounting piece grey and then hang it in the nursery!

1 project down and about 4 more to go.  I still need to make a lamp, the bow holder, paint a shelf & some baskets & frame a few pictures, then I can be done with projects and her room should be ready!

Yay Friday!


  1. This is cool! Girls are dangerous. Since Bailey was born, I've spent WAY too much time at the craft store!

  2. New follower!! I love this! Congrats on baby #2. I cannot wait to see your bow holder, my daughter's are all shoved in a drawer, I would love a nice way to display them, but she had a TON.

  3. Oh Thank you ladies! Carrie I totally agree that they are dangerous. That is why I am trying to be more crafty in the nursery dept because it's cheaper this way then Etsy.

    Welcome Amy!
