It's been a while. Finally able to start getting back on here and posting some. It seems we never slow down anymore and seems like there is still sooooo much to be done. Can't believe I am 25 weeks already and Dr said he would induce at 38 weeks if everything looked good so that means Miss Savanah could be here in as little as 13 weeks. I can't believe how fast time is going by.

Just wanted to share what DH has been working on lately. I'm so proud of him and it has really saved us a ton of money. He has recently decided to start using a scroll saw and here is what he has made so far........

For Savanah's room.....Her name(not decorated yet. just cut out)


HERE ARE HER LETTERS THAT I JUST FINISHED A FEW MINUTES AGO. i'M KIND OF PROUD OF EM.



Some of her wall decor....he's still working on making more....The bedding is from Baby Depot and the kit for this wall decor with them is about $30 plus shipping. It only cost about $4 for a 4 foot piece of pine wood to make these and I already have the paint and can make way more than 5 pieces.


This is Savanah's bedding set....


These are the other letters that Donnie has made and we already have them painted. We figured since we did the baby name in letters, we needed to do Kayla and Eli's name in letters as well.



I just got on Microsoft Word and found some fonts that I liked and printed them out. I brought them home and he went to work.

And these are the other two just random things he has made with the scroll saw.....He is a volunteer fireman which is why he really wanted to do this first one.....



Anyway. I know it was kinda long but I am soooo very proud of him. he has done such a wonderful job. I told him he should start selling them. lol

WOW! Those are totally awesome! What talent! You have every right to be proud. And, you should be proud of yourself, too. The way you painted the letters is adorable!

Thanks ladies. I am proud of him. We actually are going to start selling them. We have 4 orders for here in town and i have about 8 women wanting them in the August DDC. I'm hoping it will bring us in a little extra money but still make them affordable for parents so that you don't have to pay a fortune for them.
