Project Distraction

For the past month I have put off anything baby related. I was working on my projects and having a little love affair with my sewing machine...I heart her.  It's a fun distraction to create something for no real reason.  The ladies at Joann's Fabric know me already. They must wonder what the hell I'm up to all the time.  Anyway, here are some of the things I have been distracting myself with.
Sewing machine cover
Mod Podge and fabric covered box

Fabric covered boxes
I love my boxes. Don't love my lack of common sense to measure the depth of the cabinets, so they hang off the edge...o well.  I put the things that I don't use often in there so I can clear some space in my minimal cabinets. Gets the job done. The other boxes are for my cookbooks.
Plastic garbage bag holders
Of course I needed 3, one for the kitchen, one for my bathroom, and one for the baby's room.  By far the easiest and quickest of all the projects.

My recovered rocker. Took a while and is not perfect, but again...o well. At least it's not filthy like it was before. And it now has a zipper so I can take it off and wash it.  I still have to Scotch Guard it, another day.

Now that I have most of the projects out of my head (still have a few more ideas) I'm able to concentrate on baby things.  We even chose a name. I've been procrastinating for 9 months and it took us less than 5 minutes to agree once we had found the right one. Which is great because I didn't really have too much time left. Getting a little anxious to see how life is going to change around here. I've been trying to organize and streamline everything around here with what little energy I have left.  Hopefully the girls will adapt quicker than me.
Yesterday morning I found the girls playing with their baby dolls and Kayla said, "I'm pretending I have a lot of children, like you Mommy!"

Inspiration and ideas for my projects came from the following tutorials and blogs
