For a long time I have known what others may have missed.
My hubby has his own creative streak.
This made itself apparent a little while ago when he decided to make something for friends of ours who were expecting their second baby. Darren is a mechanic (when they were living near us he used to spend his days servicing Porches and the like at a garage that had a "dustless" room that probably would give some hospitals a run for their money!!!), so the Man of the House took a little trip to purchase the required materials, and this is what he came up with...
Obviously, I couldn't resist adding my own little touches to it (aka hand stitched ribbons!!!), but it suffices to say that as the child grows, the ribbons can be removed for a little more 'industrial' look... and then just get pulled apart all together for him to tinker around at home on projects with his dad! :)
I love how it turned out. Tomorrow I will come back with an edit and better pictures (interesting lighting today, and I obviously didn't have any photography mojo to help me out!) if the weather behaves itself.
Edit: Here they are!
