Okay so I've been tagged. Now, I've been tagged before, and I normally don't comply. Why? Because most of the tags I've gotten want to know weird and crazy things about me personally, and I just think, people don't really want to know this about me. And so I ignore them. But Sandra from Sawdust and Paper Scraps tagged me, and this tag was fun and easy. So here goes. I guess there's been a tag going around blog land called "6th photo" where you're supposed to show the 6th photo you've ever put on your blog and explain. Well that sounds fun to me. I've been doing this blog for a little over 3 years now and I vividly remember my first post, and it's content, so I thought it would be fun to show you. Here's my 6th photo.
It was from this post. I had been commissioned (I like using that word because I'm not commissioned very often). Anyway a friend of mine was having two new Grandchildren and wanted me to make a diaper bag and some fun accessories for each baby. This was the lot for one of them. I loved that she gave me free reign and let me make what I wanted, and trusted that it would turn out cute. So I made a diaper bag, a blanket, some burp cloths, a binki holder, and a nursery painting for each baby. I think it all turned out pretty well myself. Check out the post if you want to see the lot for the second baby. I used to make a lot of diaper bags, but got a little burned out on them I guess. I've been thinking about doing a bag tutorial. Anyone interested?
So since Sandra tagged me (thanks Sandra, I was very flattered) let's talk about her for a minute. I came across Sandra very recently. In fact I don't think she's even been blogging for all that long (at least not with Sawdust and Paper Scraps), but she is quickly becoming famous because she's so amazing. This is what drew me to her blog.
This is a closet that Sandra turned into a playroom. And the most amazing part: she did this herself. I'm impressed and thinking about getting myself some power tools. When we finish our basement there will definitely be one of these.
And this is Sandra's frame wall. I love this idea. And look at her beautiful molding. She did that all by herself too. And it doesn't end there either. It continues up the stairs.
And around the corner. Gorgeous!
And this is Sandra's kitchen that she remodeled. You have to check out the before to truly appreciate the after, I love it. I even showed it to my husband to try to talk him into painting our cabinets. Maybe someday...
Anyway you have to go see Sandra's blog, it's called Sawdust and Paper Scraps. She's amazing, can I say that again? I wish she was my neighbor, but she lives in Chicago and I live in Utah. Oh well, thank goodness for blogs, that way we can all be neighbors.
So thanks for the tag Sandra, I think the way I'll handle passing this on will be to just say that I'm opening it up to anyone who wants to do it. Tag! You're it. If you do this leave a comment and let me know, I'd love to see your 6th pictures!
