Sheep Theme Nursery Beginnings

For years I’ve had a pinterest board in which I’ve been collecting ideas for our (then future) child’s nursery;

Since it’s a boy, we’ve decided to go with a blue, white, black, and brown sheep theme.

We had some time to ourselves today, so I began researching and organising things for a sheep themed nursery.

Last night I researched sheep mobiles and found that they were at least $80 on ebay, and none on gumtree, so I asked around if someone could make us a sheep and cloud mobile, and a friend of a friend is willing to make us one for material costs, which is excellent. I’ve set a budget for this at about $30

These were what I originally had in mind;



And here’s what the lovely lady agreed to try, though she’s going to make the coats fluffier, and add 3d clouds:


Today I asked a crafty vocal student of mine if she would make us some crocheted sheep to put on a cot and bassinet blanket, and she agreed. I’m really thankful for this, as the cot set I was looking at seems impractical, and was around $200!!!

This is what she’ll try to replicate I think;


Today I spent about 3 hours making clothing tags for his nursery. We decided to personalize them with his name, so it’s pretty much set in stone now – unless he turns out to be a she 😛

  1. When I left a comment a while back I seem to have accidentally clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.

    Is there an easy method for you to remove me from this service please?

    • Thanks for the feedback, and sorry about the comment subscription. It seems strange though that you’d be getting spammed with the same comments as all my comments require prior approval from us, and I have heavy filters for spam. Let me know if it keeps happening and I’ll look into it.

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
