Project Nursery is a great website to get ideas for nurseries, kids rooms, birthday parties and DIY projects. There is an area where users can upload projects they have recently completed to share with viewers. Check out Roman’s nursery here!
There it is!
“I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life.” Elsie De Wolfe
There are days I wake up in an artsy mood – when I want to craft all. day. long. When I get in one of those moods, I am always reminded of this quote by Elsie De Wolfe.
I have been inspired by textiles lately. I have been wanting to make some tassels for a long time and decided to give it a try. Roman’s nursery has been needing a pop of color above his crib. The tassels are a little crazy, but I think I like it! I have been working on one final art piece for his nursery. I am still not sure what direction it will take, but it is a start.
When Michael & I first started going to Lighthouse Baptist Church, we weren’t sure what ministry was for us. After some prayers and speaking with one of the pastors, opportunities started to arise. Michael got settled into working the sound booth while I started helping with church decorations. Who knew that church decorating could even be a ministry!?
One of my favorite things to help out with are the baby showers. It gives me a chance to get to know the individual, usually someone I haven’t talked to before, and start building a relationship with them. It also allows me to get creative, have fun working on DIY projects, and then getting to see their face light up as they walk through the door – it is rewarding for so many reasons!
A couple of months back, I volunteered to do a baby shower for a girl in my church that would be having a baby boy. When I asked her if she had a theme in mind, she eagerly said a “Hungry Caterpillar” themed baby shower. I had no idea she and her kids were fans of the cute Eric Carle story! I excitedly went out and purchased a copy of the book (it is now waiting in the nursery for bedtime storytelling with Roman) to gather ideas, and of course consulted Pinterest. It came out so cute!
I love design, decorating, cooking and DIY projects. My style is a mixture of cottage and shabby chic style with industrial and eclectic elements. Check out my LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/in/aliciaholdridge) for examples of my professional and student portfolio. [...]read full page
