I've always been quite the creative person. Always painting, decorating, drawing, creating, cooking, thinking of new things. Does my mind ever shut off? No! In fact that is a problem lately. Kyri has been waking up non stop through out the night so I am tired, but I can't stop thinking about things long enough to fall asleep, then before I know it Kyri's up!. PLEASE JUST LET ME SLEEP!

I've been on pinterest all morning while Kyri gets her morning nap in. I tried to sleep, trust me. Here are some amazing artsy ideas that I have found (and addicting blogs).

1. Amanda Wright's blog Wit & Whistle

The pillow is Amanda's design. It is for sale on her blog for $38.00.  She also sells gift cards, tea towels, stamps and more. This would be such a fun craft. Only if I new how to sew. That's were bonding time with my mother in-law comes in. You can check out her blog here.

2. Natalie Bale's blog Natalme

Natalie's blog is great for crafts for kids and adults. This book end holder is a great idea for my son's new room. I look forward to making more crafts from her site. If you would like to check out Natalie's ideas, you can find them here.

3. Amy Ness's baby aparel on Etsy 'Petite Faye'

Amy creates amazing baby toques, crowns, blankets, hand bands, and more here. I would love to put my knitting talent to use this fall and make Kyri a toque. If your not the knitting type you can buy her products online at Petite Faye.

Her site shows you what you need, what you can do, and how to do it. Simple and fun. You can write on the cards, giving a description to your photos or just leave them blank.

7. Delightful Order by DaNita

Every wonder how people stay so organised? With labels on every box and jar, knowing where everything is in every drawer. Well Delightful Order is a blog by and she gives advice on storing and organising every room in your house.
