Peach's Handmade Nursery

We had the most fun handcrafting the nursery for our little peachkitten. I've always wondered why people paint their nurseries in soft pastels when all the research I've read says bright colors are the most stimulating and help little eyes develop. Also, I thought these colors would work for a boy or a girl. Let's count the handmade items in your nursery, peachkitten:

1. See the flag bunting that hangs on your wall? 
 We made it out of scrapbook paper and string. Easy peasy.

2. See your changing table?
Friends Chris & Linda made it for you from scratch.
We made the pad & the curtain behind it.  
Oh and the balloon mobile over your changing table? Yeah, that too

3. See your glider?
We found that on craigs list and covered it with ikea fabric.

 4. Your cribsheet?

Handmade with love out of ikea fabric

5. Your mobile?
Well, we printed, cut out, assembled, and hung it. So yes, technically we made it.

Balloon mobile close-up!

Just love it.

For our cousin in Michigan who is getting married in September (like exactly one day after Peach's due date), we made these personalized stationery for her bridal shower.
Hand-drawn in Illustrator, printed, cut and assembled at home
We now officially love giving these as gifts so if you have a birthday coming up, you can probably expect one of these sets.
There she goes! All packaged up and ready to go!

Bedroom Art

We recently purchased a new duvet cover from Ikea that I'm in love with. Except our old art no longer went with the new bedroom colors, so we made some.

dang we love dirigibles
Designed in Illustrator, printed and fit into some small frames. We will upload the photo as soon as the replacement cable gets here. We have a bunch to upload actually...we've been a bit busy! So stay tuned!

Graphic Onesies for Baby Barnes

We love our yudu machine! With the help of some 220 mesh screens and The Graphics Fairy we were delighted to lift the screen and find these adorable onesies peeking up at us.
We weren't sure if they would actually turn out right.
But we like the imperfections.
We made these especially for our friend's little bundle, scheduled to arrive in late July.
 Hope she likes them!

There are also die for grains, veggies, herbs & spices and a couple of special die featuring delicacy items like Truffles, Coffee, Ginger, Lemon, & Caviar.

Amazing Crochet Reef

From our trip earlier this year to D.C.
Crochet Reef At Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum Is a Masterpiece of Yarn
From the photos, it seems surreal that yarn could be made to look like aquatic creatures and coral reefs, and yet they really manage it. Beyond being beautiful to look at, the exhibit also has an environmental message. The exhibit is the work of at least 800 women and men, ranging from a three-year-old to a Centenarian, who hope that through their work they can attract attention to the degraded state of the World’s coral reefs. Twenty percent of the world’s coral reefs have been destroyed in the past few decades. Global warming, ocean acidification, overfishing and overpopulation are all threats that face coral reefs.
The organizers, Margaret and Christine Wertheim, are from Australia, where the project, which has since traveled around the world, started began.The sisters, an artist and a scientific journalist, wanted to highlight the blight of their beloved Great Barrier Reef. Beyond being beautiful and carrying an important message, the exhibit also shows the hyperbolic geometry of coral. In 1997, mathematician Daina Taimina recognized that the crochet stitch represents this complex geometry.
Wherever the exhibit travels to, the Wertheim sisters encourage the local community to create its own reef. These community efforts remove some of the bleakness of the message that the colorful coral reefs may not be around forever, and provide hope that by working together maybe we can avert disaster, and the coral reefs will outlast us after all, even if that three-year-old ends up being a centenarian.
