Made it Monday 3.28.10


This week for Made it Monday I want to show you this cartoonish Moose I painted for over Jack's crib.  Since the Remington Man is such an outdoor kinda of guy I thought that wildlife animals would be a perfect theme for our son.  Unfortunately no one is making wildlife bedding that also has bright bold colors.  So I decided to make wildlife accessories.  

I found this note card design of a moose by Linda & Harriett and thought it 
was perfect to go over the crib.  

Here is my re-creation attempt on a much larger scale.
I like him.  Simple, sweet, and Moose(ish).  Perfect.

This week for Made it Monday, The Remington Man helped me out a lot so I need to give him credit.  As I've mentioned before our son's nursery was once our study.  That study came complete with french glass doors and curtains over the glass just didn't sit well with me.  I thought if I could cover the glass with something a little more permanent that is what we would do.  The Remington Man cut two pieces of Peg Board (without the holes) to the size of the glass and painted them.  The front side is the color of the doors and trim in our house and the nursery side is black magnetic paint.  I am excited to come up with some fun magnetic objects to put there!  
(The Before: mostly cleaned out!)
(After:  View from the living room)
(View from inside the nursery:  trim will come sometime this week,
 a unexpected snowstorm changed our plans this weekend!)
Yeah magnets stick!  This one won't stay; but I need to research some fun ones to fill up this space.

This week the Remington Man and I have been working hard on a few pieces for Jack's little nursery.  We are converting it from our study into his little home.  I found a long dresser at a consignment shop that fit the dimensions perfectly to double as a changing table.  Unfortunately the price wasn't perfect but it fit in the budget so we got it and painted it up.  Sadly, the last coat is still drying so I won't be able to put the pics up until Monday.  


Here it is...I really don't want the dresser to be the focal point of the room so I painted a plain brown.  I am so excited the changing pad fits and looks great up there!  
I can't wait to see what all of you have been up to this week!  So what have you MADE?

Planting in our little city garden has begun!  I am so looking forward to all the goodies the Remington Man has planned on growing this year.  The first thing planted was green onions.  I decided I needed to label the garden plants to be able to help identify them to a curious one year old who loves being outside.  I am not the farmer in the family so I needed some "cheat sheets" or garden markers as they are officially called.
This is what I came up with:
Step One:  Design a label add a picture for recognition.
Step Two:  Cut out and laminate.  (I had a chance to use my new laminator by Purple Cows that I got for Christmas).
Step Three:  Unbend a paper clip.
Step Four:  Tape on paper clip to back side of laminated label.

Step Five:  Put in ground and act like you knew what it was all along.

7 Days Old

I had the privilege of taking this little newborn's photos over the weekend and had to share my favorite pic from the session.  He was such a good little model.  What a fun expression!
