Wishlist || Pretty in Peach!

I've been a tad bit obsessed with this color lately. I don't know why. I just seem to be drawn to it. These are just a few of the wonderful peach-colored things I've found on Etsy lately...

This peach Peter Pan collar by All Apples is wonderful. It is so delicate and classy. Perfect addition to an outfit!

I think this double-stranded necklace would be perfect for school. Shop Nestled has tons of great statement jewelry pieces.

This Vintage 70's sweater looks so cozy! It's getting a bit too warm for sweaters like this, but I love how soft and warm it looks! This sweater and lots of other vintage finds can be found at Viral Threads.

Ello Lovey always has wonderful print illustrations and this one is no exception. It would look great in my kitchen!

Baby Projects Galore!

This week I've been working on some fun baby projects! My mom asked me to make a blanket for one of her coworkers who is going to be having a baby girl. For this one, I decided to go with a simple granny square in white, pink, and green. This is working up really quickly and should hopefully be done by tomorrow!

The next project is for one of my best friends who is having a baby boy in just five weeks! His blanket isn't very far along, but I can already tell that I'm going to love it! I'm using the Forget-Me-Not Baby pattern from Crochet World Magazine. The blanket is worked in filet crochet with worsted weight yarn, which gives it a soft, light feel. Perfect for baby! I can't wait to see how this one is going to turn out.

I've also been charged with making an outfit for baby boy's newborn photos! I'm VERY excited and a little bit nervous about this. My friend showed me some pictures of things that she likes, now it's up to me to make it happen. I'll share more about this once I've actually started working on it. :)

I hope you're having a wonderful week. What projects are you working on?

Giveaways? Yes, please!

Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to have time for any fun, crafty posts this week. My week thus far has consisted of lesson plans, observations, and Starbucks tea to help me make it through. (Thank goodness the Easter Bunny brought me a gift card!) I've got a feeling it's going to be like this for the remainder of the week.

BUT! There is good news! I stumbled upon a couple giveaways that I think you'll be very interested in.
The first one is fromYellow Bird, Yellow Beard. The wonderful blogger there is giving away an iPad. Really. An iPad. You need to go check it out ASAP!

The second giveaway is for a $50 gift certificate to Padgett Hoke. Her Etsy shop is full of beautiful jewelry in lovely blue and green hues. Go check out the giveaway at Shannon Hearts!


I've already decided what I want if I win. I think this bright turquoise and periwinkle necklace is gorgeous. Very teacher-y don't you think? :)

I hope you're having a wonderful week that is not nearly as stressful as mine.

Good luck on those giveaways!
