Curtains

This week I returned the maternity clothes I had gotten for Christmas and my birthday, and of course it was a little sad. But it's alright because I used the money to order this lovely little fabric that I'll use for curtains in Brynlee's room. I wasn't kidding about sewing therapy. It's been a good distraction!
I'll admit, I was so sad when I had to take down the crib in Bryn's room and accept the fact that she won't have a little sibling to use it for another year (or whenever the time comes). But I've been trying to make Bryn's room cute and convince myself that Bryn is fine without a roommate for a while. Right?
I'm going to make the room SO cute and colorful that I won't even notice that there isn't a crib in there, and I'll be SO distracted by the cuteness that I'll forget that I want another baby. What do you think? Maybe it could work?? I'll tell you... it won't. BUT I'll be left with pretty curtains, so my efforts will not be in vain.
And all joking aside, I've become more and more grateful that I already have one beautiful child to spend my time with and sew curtains for. I am blessed, and I really can't complain.

I just bought pillows in that fabric today at target. I love it! Maybe I should take them back and make my own. Cute.
