Some small things I’ve been up to

April 22nd, 2011

Keeping with the small theme, here are some of the small things I've been up to in the last week. I finished up a total experiment in sewing, using some fabric scraps I had from my first big sewing project, to make this little bird. He's perfectly imperfect.

My littlest pal (my best friend's 3 year old) and I made beautiful play-doh art (this was entirely directed by her.)

I've been taking loads of tiny photos with the Instagram app. If you use the app, have you heard about postagram? It's a cool way to get your instagram photos in hard copy, in the form of a postcard. I'm going to have to try that out.

I've also been putting the finishing touches on the nursery, including painting a growth chart tree which I'm in love with. Here's a sneak peek of it in progress. I promise to share photos of the whole nursery in all its glory very soon!

I also got a copy of the small and lovely new book by Patti Digh, What I Wish for You. I love Patti's writing. You can find my painting, The Unknown, on page 70!

I hope your weekend is full of small beauties!

Oh Leah, thank you for inspiring! Your way of whimsy is music in my heart. And what I wish for you is a joyful and beautiful birth. Big loving life with your new precious on the way! Big Blessings and Love,

Love the perfectly imperfect bird and can’t wait to see the rest of the nursery. That bunny has stolen my heart.


I love Patti Digh’s work, too–congratulations on your art appearing in her book! Darling growth chart and “perfectly imperfect” (awesome phrase) bird, too.

loving the bunny wall, great colour…happy weekend

Leah, so great to read about the nursery prep. Magic!

Wow, you have been busy! I love the sweet little bird and the bunny watching over your growth tree. I can’t wait to see the finished piece! Thanks for sharing about Postagram. I downloaded the Instagram ap when you mentioned it…so I will have to look into this one too. As always, thanks for keeping us inspired!

oh wow I love the rabbit on the wall!
It always amazes and awes me how you are able to convey emotion and expression with shape alone. You are so good at that!

What a happy creative post! Love your birdie and the growth chart look promisingly gorgeous. Play dough is great fun for all ages. The hair making gadget is my favourite. And I love the smell of play dough :-)

Hope you and your growing baby girl are having a fabulous Easter weekend.
