Hi friends - I thought I'd break out of my newborn haze a little this morning and share some pictures of Ruby:
moses basket every morning and shout out a very enthusiastic, "HI! HI! HI!"
Also, I am excited to welcome Kirstin and Jordan of kojo designs to my blog today. Since Kirstin is having a baby in August, she proposed that we do a little maternity leave swap to give us each a bit more time to return to crafting. I've been a long-time fan of kojo's blog and projects, so I was thrilled with the idea! They have a beautiful tutorial prepared for you today.
So without further ado ... here are Kirstin and Jordan:
Hello there. Congratulations to Jill and a big welcome to Miss Ruby (isn't she lovely?)! We love babies... there isn't anything as exciting as bringing a new family member home from the hospital. At the same time, there isn't anything quite as exhausting! Which brings us to this blog swap- hopefully it gives Jill, Jared and Oscar a little more time for newborn baby kisses and snuggles and naps. And hopefully our tutorial today gives you some ideas for nursery decor (well, technically, I made this for my toddler's new "big boy room," so I guess it could be any-room decor) as well.
First things first- we are Kirstin and Jordan, sisters who blog over at kojodesigns. Besides our aforementioned love for babies and making things for our little ones, we have slight addictions to pretty paper and fabric, love nothing more than putting together a kickin' party or shower, and both still subscribe to Martha Stewart Weddings (even though we've each been married for 7+ years- haha!). We LOVE Jill's blog (the maternity pencil skirt I made using her tutorial wins the award for most worn maternity item during my pregnancy) and are thrilled to be here today.
Let's get started on a pom pom name pennant, shall we?
-yarn in your palette
-Goodwill-bound tshirts in your palette (optional)
-a pom pom maker
-floral wire or craft wire
-coordinating felt (a few 9x12 sheets), cut into dime sized circles
-coordinating grosgrain ribbon (I used 3 yards)
-a hot glue gun and hot glue
yarn pom poms and jersey pom poms.
Again, congratulations Jill! Thanks for having us today!
