The Nursery


For those of you who haven’t been around this blog long enough to know, I am going to be a first time grandmother in May this year. My excitement is palpable…

Work has begun on the nursery. My initial contribution was the rocking chair. I told L that it would be up to her to use her God given artistic talents and dress it up with some nice cushions. Boy did she ever…

I love the little spaceship dude!

I wish I had her DIY artistic talent. In fact I would settle for just a fraction of the talent she has. Big sigh… Some of us have the talent for DIY, and some of us write because we lack the talent. πŸ™‚ Yup. That would be me folks.

I would love to hear about projects you have created for or with your grandchildren. Perhaps you have one you would like to share with us.

    I've had students make a memoir box, which is essentially a keepsake box. The outside is decorated to reflect the maker's personality and then ten important objects are place inside. Then comes a show-and-tell where the maker of the box explains what the objects show about them.

      I know you are right. I just don't think of myself that way. πŸ™‚

  3. As much as I go on about craftsmanship and such, I have no talent for stuff like this. But it is something my mother excells at. My sisters follow with that pretty well too. But ya, the artsy stuff… it eludes me.

      there are many things I am good at, artsy is not one of them. πŸ™‚

    That is the most adorable rocking chair cushion I think I have ever seen. I love the bright colors. L did a wonderful job.

      Yes she did. She never ceases to amaze me with the stuff she does.

    I doubt I would be the type of grandmother my mother is to my kids – she's such a trouble maker. But she does make a killer "beef bowl". How to cook rice and find the humor in anything; that's what "Baba" is good for.
