I think the “nesting” is kicking in early this time around.
My fridge has been cleaned, my closet has been reorganized…and more importantly, baby Hudson’s little wardrobe and bassinet are getting ready to welcome him home!
I saw this adorable baby button monogram on craftgawker and had my heart set on making one for our little man. Unfortunately, the buttons were a little harder to come by than I thought (I don’t have a big stash and the thrift stores around here had a very limited supply), so it took me awhile to assemble everything. Over the summer I slowly collected buttons and then added some brads and other odds and ends from my scrapbooking supplies and just yesterday finally bought a frame at Hobby Lobby (they are 50% off right now). Nels kept saying that the button thing was “girly” so I may have gone a little over the top trying to make it “manly.” I hope that it won’t seem too dark and heavy in a little nursery room…but if it does, oh well, he will grow into it! 😉
Don’t have time to make your own? Check out this great shop on etsy. Totally blows my monogram out of the water (but also makes my low expenses look great!)…they stitch each button to a piece of fabric – something I may keep in mind if I make another monogram.
Isn’t it lovely? I think one of these would make a really great wedding gift or baby shower gift.
Well, with every little thing finished I am feeling more and more excited (and somewhat more nervous too!) about Hudson’s arrival. He is kicking very actively, but of course is a little shy when anyone wants to actually feel him kick. 🙂 Only one more month to go!
