I absolutely love this project idea. DIY cross stitch for kids -- kids draw their own pattern on graph paper and get stitching! And the cardboard is fantastic.

The March issue of Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine has a fun feature by editor Lacey Major - The Big Top! Circus inspiration for the nursery that's, well, not over the top. Really fun don't you think?
This is what your nursery would look like if your mum is the talented artist, Adriane Duckworth. Also, you can see the wonderful little play nook that was created in the living area.
"This room has gone through some changes since we first designed it when we were expecting him, and it will surely go through more changes as time goes on. We try to keep the colour scheme fairly neutral and monochromatic, while including lots of pops of colour through toys and accessories. I plan on painting this room white soon (it's currently a very pale blue) and I may paint the ceiling black, but we'll see!"
Thanks so much for sharing Ben's nursery and playroom space with us, Adriane.

The new year always brings a new season of design & color. One of which I am quite excited about .. Bumbleride's 2013 collection.
Bumbleride has simplified their line quite a bit, offering 3 strollers (Indie, Indie Twin & Flite) in 5 colors with the accessories to match. The 2013 colors are strong, thankfully. I'm sure we can all appreciate the deeper colors as strollers seem to inevitably get quite messy!
And if you don't need the latest greatest, the Bumbleride 2012 Models are on sale...
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you're having a day full of love, hugs & lots of chocolate.
Last night I wrapped up gifts for my kids using this free printable wrap from Minieco. Geometric Hearts - yes! My last minute gifts for the kids included homemade gummy bears and a coupon for 1 new iPad game each.
Print the Geometric Heart wrap, good for any day of the year.
