We went into a super expensive store in Canmore a few weeks ago and I found a little sweater tank top deal that I loved for $140. No thank you. But I thought, I could make that. So I went to the thrift store and got a lovely sweater for $5.
I am quite happy with the result and I can’t tell you how fun it was to cut the mammoth sweater into bits. It was really quite theraputic.
We are five months pregnant, so I have been trying to use what I have for clothes and alter here and there as not to buy a totally new wardrobe. I have been really fortunate to have some good friends lend me some things as well.
I saw a beautiful mobile on a website and I thought I would try it out for our new little one. I love it because it doesn’t look like a Winnie the Pooh mobile, but it is still interesting and I think our little babe will like looking at it. I tried to use more manly colours for the birds (since we are having another little man). I found this drift wood on our camping trip this summer and I have been saving it for this occasion.
I have to get some hooks to put it all together and hang it up.
