this blog and it gave me an idea. Open the link dummy or you won't see where I am going with this...wooden embroidery hoop frame! That is a bit girlish for Samuel, but it gave me some ideas. I could use various sized canvases and do the same thing. Hey maybe I will reupholster my disgusting dining chairs I have had for less than a year that the kids have plopped their diapered bottoms on. Come for dinner anyone? Anyway, I got this mobile several years ago at Restoration Hardware along with some tin circus plates I always go there after Christmas when everything is on clearance.
Does it sound like I am motivated? No, just manic, the kids will still be sleeping in Ava's pink room on crib mattresses a year from now, but at least I know I had a good idea at one time!
