For Merideth

My friend Merideth is due to have a baby boy in a couple of weeks, and I wanted to make something special for the baby's room. Merideth chose a bird theme for the room, and when I found this bird mobile project in One Yard Wonders, I knew it was the perfect thing.

I finally got to give it to her at her baby shower yesterday, along with this book:

Hands: Growing Up to Be an Artist by Lois Ehlert - I've always loved Lois Ehlert's illustrations, and this is an absolutely beautiful book about how her creativity was inspired and encouraged by her parents. I think it's a perfect gift from me to this new baby - I hope he grows up to express himself in all the ways that come naturally to him, and that his parents inspire in him.

I just can't wait for him to get here!


  1. We can't wait for him to get here either, already so loved by so many! The beautiful mobile will go up this weekend and I'll send a pic of it all together so you can see how wonderful it looks. Carole Ann you are the best!!!

  2. This is the cutest thing ever!!! I want one! (Mobile, not baby) :)
