3.5 months old

So sorry to be MIA!
But here are some quick photos of our little elf :0)
I will post soon, we have family coming in for Christmas and Sher's 
mom is now here with us (she came in from Moscow last month).

It's been busy, projects everywhere, we had to redo Sher's mom's room 
in 2 weeks! That includes flooring and all! -pics to come soon.

Well, hope everyone has a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!

This is a dress that used to belong to me!

Hot Air Balloon Lanterns

I thought having some hanging hot air balloons in Sophie's room would be fun.
Something cute for her to stare at :0)

I found these cute balloons but they were a little pricey and small.

I started to think up how I could make some myself and came
up with the idea to use paper or nylon chinese lanterns.

Then I thought, it'd be cool if they actually lit up too and doubled as night lights!

I ordered a few light kits and some lanterns in different shapes,
I already had some small round lanterns in my closet.

.The green one came colored already, and I remembered to take a pic
 right after I had painted on the blue stripes, hehe.

All I did was paint them up with acrylic paints.
Painting on the nylon lanterns was a lot easier than the paper lanterns btw.

I then used dimensional paint to add some fun details, 
and a thin sharpie to draw on the "netting".

Finding baskets was hard, lol -I finally found some at Hobby Lobby in San
Antonio while we were on vacation! They were a blonde colored wood so 
I just painted them a darker shade.

After the lanterns were nice and dry I just poked some 
string through them and tied the baskets on. Hanging them from Sophie's 
chandelier made this process a lot easier!

Here it is all tied up :0)

I hot glued on some "sand bags" made
up of scrap fabric and a little poly fil and some little flags. 
Those were made quickly and simply with
paper and markers...that's all there was too it! 

This was a really fun project. They still don't have the light 
kits attached but I hung them up anyway just to enjoy their
cuteness :0). Sophie seems to like them too!

Here they are in their new home..

Now here's some cute pics of Sophie to enjoy :0)
