Abigail has a bed!!
















She needed somewhere to sleep, and all I had was my old boys bedding so I decided to head out and get some fabric and just make something, seeing as I was not willing to spend the $40 plus dollars on a bumper and sheet set. I covered Jordan's old bumper and made a new sheet. I got the flannel for less than $15.00. My only set back is that I underestimated the amount of fabric I would need for the bumper and ended up putting in the red patch with her name on it made out of one of my old tee shirts and some embroidery floss. All in all don't look close but, I love it! And boy is it so stinkin soft! So one more thing down, her clothes from ebay, all her 0-3 stuff for $30.00,  are in the mail and her car seat, yet to get but mom wants to do it so we are waiting on that one. but I am about ready for her to show up!!  And let me just add while I am tooting my little spending horn,that I got that crib at a yard sale for $20.00 when Michael was born. Holly cow am I a cheapskate or what.

Adorable, Adorable, and adorable! How cute, I wish I could do something like that. I love the crib too, that is the style I wanted, but couldn't find it anywhere for a good deal. Can't wait for you to have that cute girl here.

How stinking cute is that!? I love that your are so resourceful. You are remarkable and I love that you don't allow yourself the pleasure of being indulgent. It is a great characteristic to have.

Holy cow! I think you have a gift...both in the sense of talent and creativity when it comes to being a mom. And a great one at that!
I think it wonderful that you are frugal. If more people were, we wouldn't being having the huge financial situation we do!

Way to be a conscientious spender! That's awesome! That red shirt of your looks familiar, is it by any chance our old Dixie shirt? I know mine fell apart a long time ago and I threw it out, but the red really looks like that shirt to me. I am pretty sure we are getting Isabella's bedding from my shower on Saturday, and it's so cute! We will see. I am super excited about it! I'll keep my blog updated so you can keep up with me and Isabella. :) Hope you are still doing great!
