Fall Inspiration 

Yesterday was my first day back at work. Being back in such a creative atmosphere was very inspirational in a style sense, especially for the new season ahead.  I am loving bohemian styles with lots of rich details and textures!

Etsy Shop Now Open!

I am so excited to announce that I have opened an Etsy shop that will be a marketplace for my handmade home decor pieces.  So far I only have two painted antler listings but I have high hopes to add some throw blankets, pillows and more painted antler sheds in the next few months.  

Antler sheds have always been a favorite of mine.  I love the process of gathering them, the cold winters hikes in the mountains and that feeling of pride when you finally find one.  When we were in the Jackson Hole boutiques, I kept seeing sheds for sale.  If they were selling in such high end boutiques, why did we keep our found pieces tucked away in the closet (other than the few we do keep out as decor)? I decided to put a little chic twist on something so rustic by painting them black and gold, and will try my hand at selling!

My etsy shop’s name is NewmansNest (of course!!) and you can view it by clicking here

DIY Braided Pacifier Clip

For starters, I have to tell you I think I am in full blown nesting now. I guess at almost 37 weeks that would make sense though- she is almost here! Every little tutorial I see for the little I want to try- but where to find the time is the question. I saw this tutorial over at Say Yes for braided binkie clips and they just looked too cute not to attempt. I figured pacifier clips were a quick little project I could tackle, and I was right- they were so easy and fun!

I won’t try to explain the step by step process because I’m sure the tutorial I followed does it way better than I can, so head on over to Say Yes for the full directions. A few things I did differently- I couldn’t find suspender clips so I used badge clips (but I was able to find them and the rest of the materials at Michaels), and I didn’t have a clipboard so I used a cutting board and a chip bag clip- nothing like improvising!
