nestings & a giveaway

I've been a busy bee {or shall I say bird?} My life is about to be turned upside down by two little boys {not due to come until Nov-Dec}, but I have been going crazy getting everything ready. Is it possible to 'double nest?' I think I'm doing it. So far I've re-organized closets, purged toys and clothes, cleaned up very unorganized {for a looong time} spaces, crafted, and made to-do after to-do list {my poor husband}. I have this mind set of "everything must be done!!" It's sort of consumed me. But I do feel productive!

Some things I've done this week... 


Made a book page wreath {and tutorial- to come later!} 


Organized a small homeschool space {as we were kicked out of the upstairs to-be homeschool room by two bitty babies :) we actually co-sleep but who can resist a twin nursery!?}


Organized a small crafting space- it's so nice to have everything in one spot!


Cleaned out and organized my linen closet

And made an extensive to-do list for my husband, consisting of building bunk beds and cribs within the next few weeks. We shall be busy busy! Can't wait to show you those finished projects!

And just for fun:

. 2 custom silhouettes {with add ons if desired} .
. a set of 4 handmade map coasters .
. 2 baby birth prints {for you or a friend!} .


{I made these silhouettes for a wedding: Alyssa & Tyler, married on August 4th}

see here and here for more silhouette ideas



{see my etsy shop for more birth print ideas}

  26. How lovely! On many counts! Preparing for twins, nesting, getting things done, and of course the giveaway items. I love silhouettes, from vintage to modern ones as you make...so charming!

    I cant imagine how excited you are to be welcoming two little boys soon! My oldest two babies are what I call my "not quite twins." They are really close in age, almost close enough to have BEEN twins, I joke...only 11 months apart! So in some ways I think I can imagine what you are going through. What a wonderful blessing for you. Congrats!
