Raining Babies

'Tis the season for baby showers!
and thanks to my newfound love of crafty ideas brought upon by the lovely pinterest,
I'm hosting one for my friend Lindsey. So, of course I have many many ideas, most of which I will give up on, but others I will taint with my everlasting ability to make everything look obscenely "homemade" (aka a little rough around the edges). Thank goodness gracious I (my dad, really) was able to fix my computer to where I can have my beloved Photoshop (hence the new blog banner).

One of the links I saw on Pinterest inspired me to make the invitations to the shower myself, however, they didn't turn out as well as I had hoped... I decided to use trusty Photoshop to make the invitations.

 I'm doing the ever-original baby shower theme of a literal 'shower' in rain, not bathing. I'm going to be involving rainbow cakes and other rain related things...the shower isn't for a few weeks, but no worries, I'll be posting pictures a.s.a.p.

I feel like after sewing this (with the help of my grandmother), I can sew basically anything (very false statement). I love the little rainbows and birdies and I'm VERY happy with the outcome.

The sewing endeavor made me fall in love with the hobby, and I hope to never fall out of it. Be prepared to see an absurd amount of "look what I made" posts ahead (as if there aren't enough already).

Well, a little less than two months until little Miss Indie gets here. yay! Oh, how I need to improve my diaper stash, so little diapers, so little time.
