Floral nursery mobile

I debated for a LONG time what to make for the baby's nursery mobile and wall decor because being married to an ophthalmologist resident means that we are hypervigilant about preventing eye injuries.

Baby carriage card for Koman STL fundraiser

My friend Julie recently asked me to make a baby card to donate to the Koman St. Louis fundraiser trivia night.

The little pink heart is quilled and I bought the little butterfly scrapbook embellishment in a pack.
