Tomorrow is the first homestudy interview for me. Our social worker is coming by the house to hang out with little old me for a while. I have to say I am a bit nervous. The good news is our actual written homestudy is one of last things we need for our dossier. It is such a great feeling knowing we are so close to finishing the paper chase. Once we are on the waitlist I am going to dive head first into the nursery decorating. I have been holding off so I have something to look forward to with the wait. I think I may make a list of goals while we are waiting to hopefully distract us, mainly me.

Pillow Makeover

So we bought a couch a little while back and it came with some pillows that aren't quite our style. The modern floral ones remind me of some kind of sea creature. If you know my style it is casual not the least bit modern. I knew the pillows needed some covers to match our style, this is where google comes in. I googled freezer paper stencils and took a tutorial or two. Next I searched envelope style pillow cases and found out how to make them. Both of the projects were very easy!! I finished all four of them in one evening. I hope you like the makeover.


The pillowcases are nice because you don't have to know how to do a button or zipper. You can also take them off if they get dirty, I am sure they will need a good cleaning after our kiddo has been home for a while. 

Adoption news-we finished all of our homestudy paperwork. One small step towards our babe.
