Well sort of.
I think traditional nesting would involve making your house neat and tidy, not creating more messes for yourself with an endless series of craft projects and deciding on a whim to make a triple batch of chocolate chip cookies. Think about it, you want a cookie right now don’t you? Well I’ve got 4 dozen of them.
Moving on, I’ve been working hard on little accessories for my baby girl…a blanket, a crib skirt, embroidery work, thank you cards…the usual! And I decided I needed/wanted to make a mobile for above the crib.
My first thought was to hang one of my gold metal birdcages (I have like 20 from our wedding centerpieces) above the crib, and then use some of my leftover blanket/crib skirt fabric to make little birds, or mushrooms, or something cute, to dangle from the cage. I suggested this idea to Eric and he said, “Um, could we do something less dangerous?”
HAHAHAHA. I’m going to be the worst mom ever. The thought that one of those birdcages weighs at least 7 lbs, perhaps more, and that it’s probably NOT SAFE AT ALL to hang above our small small infant’s head, never occurred to me. And I had been thinking about this for months! Good thing this baby has got her dad to protect her. So, because Plan A led to the possible death of our firstborn, I had to move on to Plan B.
I started to do some research on Etsy to get some inspiration. Now, I respect creative copyright and don’t like to rip people off. But if something is easy to execute, and I think I can make it better, well then I will do so. In my searching I came across many mobiles that were cute, but you know, typical.
And then I found it.
The best mobile on the face of the earth. The best part is, this mobile is so creative and so original, that I would never even attempt to replicate it. So that means one less mess for me (cough, Eric) to clean up.
I just ordered it, and I’m so excited about it, that I decided I wanted to share it with all of you. It is not “baby” related at all, so you might find you need one for your home.
Ok ok ok, so without further ado, here it is…
THE MOBILE HOMES MOBILE:
I know, it may seem like an odd choice for my baby’s room, but I don’t like things that scream BABY. The baby, I’m sure, will do enough screaming on her own. Plus, look at that igloo LOOK AT THAT TEPEE!
Here is a link to Jikit’s etsy shop should you decide you need any of these mobiles as much as I did, or if you want to see more of her stuff. It’s all super cute.
I’ve decided to be more vocal with my support for things I love. Because the Greek Restaurant I love, and tried to promote to you, is now out of business. IT’S A TRAGEDY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED! I’m holding myself personally responsible. It was too little, too late, and I should have done more to save them!
So, support handmade! Get yourself a mobile before they take the Internet by storm and are gone faster than 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies in the clutches of a nearly 8-month-pregnant lady.
I adore you all.
