Ohhhh-mbre Baby

Baby shower gift ombre pantone A few weeks ago I gave this baby bump art to a friend for her baby shower. I wanted to give her something unique and I also wanted to try painting some ombre art. I’m in love with Ombre! Or should I call it Ohh-Oh-mbre because I love it so much. I found this sweet little  quote on pinterest that I wanted to incorporate with the ombre. Originally I was just going to do the phrase on the ombre but it was far too busy. So I split it up into 3 different pieces. I needed a photo of her so I hijacked a photo of my friend’s lovely baby bump from the facepage taken by her husband. The last piece I got to use more fun pantone chips (see my previous pantone project). I really love how it turned out and I hope they like it. Shout out to the Dunsts’, Hope your little liv is every bit as awesome as the two of you! Kisses.

Oh PS. see below for how I transfered the words onto my art : )

Baby Love

Frosted glass maternity photography baby gift sweetnothings designThis weeks project is dedicated to Baby girl J. My lovely sister is having a baby girl in less than 4 weeks! AHHHH! So excited. She asked me to take some pictures of her baby bump and her little boy Jackson. I am by no means a professional photographer but I think the pictures were a total success. There were tons of cute shots making it hard to choose just 3 for these picture frames. I used a frosted glass spray to create a graphic message of sugar, spice and nice, all the things little girls are made of. I think they’ll be darling in her room and can’t wait to give them to my sister. See below for more photos of Mommy & big brother! Daddy was unavailable but I know he’ll love having these shots of this hot mama forever! Love you guys, Kisses – Sharimaternity photography baby gift sweet nothings design

Happy New Ideas!

Project 52 sweet nothings design DIY craftsSo I’m back betches! And mama has some big plans for the new year! Of course I have all of the same resolutions as everyone else…lose weight, get healthy, wake up earlier, be kinder, volunteer, clean more, get out of debt and save money. However, I’ve decided not to declare any of those things. Instead I’ve decided to focus my energy on something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile. This year my goal is to complete 1 project per week. Hence the brilliant title Project 52! Ok it’s not brilliant but whatevs. What makes me declare such an ambitious thing? I’m so glad you asked! I have so many ideas that I don’t take the time to actually sit down and complete. Then the ideas are just left swimming around in my head, being sad and uncreated. They want to be created and I’m just the girl to do it. Also I’m tired of saying to myself I can make that! So this year I’m putting my money where my mouth is and doing it!

PS. Do you think I can count this post as project #1? HA! Fine, project #1 coming soon!

Vintage Love!

little fish designs vintage jewelry amy baas sweet nothings design shari forsLast weekend I went to the Junk Bonanza with my sister. Its a gathering of the best vintage vendors around! That in itself was awesome, but then I reconnected with an old friend, Amy Baas of Little fish designs. She designs vintage upcycled jewelry. I must say it’s AAAAH•MAZING! I’ve always liked her jewelry but have never seen it in person. Seriously no words can say how beautiful it is! I love that each piece is unique and made from found vintage materials. Door plate necklace? Yes please! Old vintage keys on chains mixed with an antique broch? Don’t mind if I do! Rescued crystals from a chandelier layered with fabulous chains? Swoon! Perhaps one of the most fabulous things about her jewelry is that its so affordable that I could do some serious damage at her shop. So go and check out her etsy shop! Since her work is forever changing and unique catch her recent jewels on her Little Fish Designs facebook page.

So lets review…Super talented, Gorgeous (that’s her, the badass biker chick in the corner), mom, wife and sweetest girl!   I know, I hate her too. I kid, I kid. She’s super awesome. Without sounding weird, I’m totally proud of you Amy and wish you all the best with your biz! Hugs + Kisses – Shari

I love Pantone 225

So I love Pink. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again “I like pink, pink is my signature color”. What movie is that from? If you can guess I’ll make you your very own pantone pic! How did I get my hands on these pantone chips? At my place of work we were getting rid of all our old pantone chip books (thanks uncle Reeg) and replacing them with the new updated versions. Not wanting these to go to waste I took the books home and showed them some love. I tore out various lovely shades of my favorite color and got to arranging! What better shape than a heart to pay homage to my favorite pantone hue! The end result is totally adorable and I’m thinking about making some more. I don’t know, not sure if we’ll have enough time – Will Ferrell
