starting simple

not that it wasn't long enough already, but lately i've added many home projects to my "to-do" list.  one of those projects is to revamp the art throughout our house.  i'm starting in c's room - we have some lovely prints already from matte stephens and berkley illustration, but i need to mix it up a bit.  i'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of these:

reading is cool from etsy's dazeychic

i also have a new quilt and a banner on my list for his room.  we recently had an incident that resulted in bleaching his baby quilt (i don't normally use bleach unless it's a laundry emergency!) and apparently our blue, lime and gray blanket is now a rather icky blueish, brownish and yellow! i might add another bookshelf too as his collection of books are creeping into ever more nooks and crannies. and since i haven't really gotten around to getting rid of diapers yet i might recover the change pad to match the future quilt (unless we have underpants triumphs soon!).

other things to-do include getting new stuff into my etsy shop, finishing the scarf on my knitting needles, making c's halloween costume, sewing many wee person clothes, making a respectable handful of christmas gifts, upholstering an ottoman and chair, recovering the dining chairs, refinishing a vintage end table, many photography projects, still that plan to figure out screenprinting and the list goes on and on. so i'm starting with simple - ordering artwork.  that gets something checked off my list with relatively little effort!  done and done.

Love that alphabet! The illustrations and colors are great! I'll have to check that out. Such fun putting new art/pictures on the wall. It can really change the space.
