Life Update

So, I think it's time for a bit of a personal update...

Over the past 2 years, we have been busy with a major house renovation and a new addition to our family - a baby boy!

As you might imagine, these two things happening simultaneously meant very little free time. We were hoping the renovation would be finished before our little one was born, but instead our little one's first 4 months were full of trips to Home Depot and lots of contractor visits.

Our little Monkey is now just over 1 year old, and is learning new things every day! When he was much smaller and still mostly sleeping, I spent many a naptime working on a rag rug for his bedroom.
DIY Rag Rug made from old T-Shirts

I made it with a bunch of old t-shirts, cutting them into strips and braiding, then coiling them into a rug shape. It turned out cooler than I expected! And obviously it was soft enough for a sleeping baby to enjoy!

 If interested, I can share a more detailed tutorial on how I did it. This is definitely a great naptime / TV-watching project!

  1. I love baby faceplants. Life is tiring!

    And that rug is lovely. My grandmother had one just like it, but your color scheme and the ombre effect is really nice.
