The happy little family!
and another
and another
my dad and Baby Bennett (look at the emotion!)

and another....
I wish i could tell you  EXACTLY how difficult this bassinet was.
When I find a pattern, I'll pass it on...
In the meantime, you just have to wing it,,,,like I did
It took me 30 hours to make.  But, we will keep it in our family and hopefully pass it down for generations!
Now....on to another little crafty idea
Have those of you (or grandmas) that are gonna have babies been cringing at the mobiles?????  Ya know, you just can't find cute ones.  Actually Restoration Hardware has some pretty cute ones...however, we couldn't find one we liked, or one that matched...at all.

I'm really mad at myself for not taking pics of this yesterday..(and doing a tutorial) because it worked out great..This is what I did.  I found a mobile that I liked (actually that had the stuff hanging down that I liked.) and....I ripped it apart and re-covered it.
Here it is!, just rip one apart and use it as a pattern.  I'll admit, it wasn't the easiest thing in the world to do, but it worked!  And it matches....and we love it!!!!  and we hope lil Bennett will too!
and this
(still lookin for a lamp)

seriously, how cool is this????
