Baby showers are such an exciting event for the mother-to-be and her closest friends and family. It’s a wonderful time to celebrate motherhood and new babies. Baby showers typically consist of food, games, and opening presents. Consider trying something new and give your guests a craft activity that will be useful for the new baby or contribute to the nursery’s design. It gives your friends and family a chance to present the new baby with something heartfelt, handmade, and sentimental. Guests will be able release their creative sides in a fun and useful way. The simple projects will live on long after the baby word search sheets and toilet paper diapers have been recycled.

Did you hear? CLOUDS are totally the new fox. The owl is out. The triangle hath made its way. What’s hot in nursery decor these days? Clouds! That’s right – happy, fluffy, sleepy, smiley clouds. And I totally love it. In fact, I already bought our soon-to-be little one a few cloud things for her nursery! (And maybe a tiny knotted newborn cap, too!) While you can certainly find plenty of cloud nursery accessories to purchase, there are several DIYs out there, too! Here are 15 awesome projects to make for your baby’s cloud nursery…

In a sea of nurseries, Noah’s nursery definitely stands out from the crowd, and just might be one of my favorite nurseries to date. Noah’s parents, Art Director Jason Porter and psychiatrist mama Elizabeth-Clare put together the most amazing Mary Blair inspired space (in case you didn’t know I’m a big Mary Blair fan) and I’m smitten. Here’s what they had to say about their inspiration: “My wife and I are both huge Disney fans and after our pregnancy announcement we both knew a Disney themed nursery would follow suit. We are both fans of Mary Blair’s artwork, already owning a throw pillow from the Disneyana Gallery when she was featured a few years back, and just felt her bold use of patterns and color would look great in a nursery. The main focus was getting everything to look fun and cute while still looking like a boy’s room. (bonus points because my wife said it would be developmentally appropriate too!)” Check out Noah’s nursery tour!

One of my friends became a mother for the very first time last week, and I was lucky enough to visit with her and her new bundle of joy a couple of days ago. It’s funny how you forget about how tiny these sweet precious babies are when they are born. Those tiny fingers, miniature toes, and silky soft skin are enough to make your heart flutter. If I’m being completely honest, I *almost* put “Baby” on my Christmas wishlist after that visit — 100% smitten!
