Howdy! And welcome to another edition of Inspired Weekly!

Do you ever have one of those weeks where everything seems overwhelming to you? That's so me this week. It started with the dirty hallway floors and has been all downhill from there. And sure I know the reasons and I've identified the causes (other than just the dirty floors), but let's be honest...that doesn't change the feeling a whole lot. 

*sigh* the weekend WILL come!

In the meantime here are a couple things to share today that I've been inspired by of late. 

DIY Pet Food Tray by Thrifty Decor Chick

Ever since this post from back in February I've been contemplating a food station solution for Cooper. Right now we have this plastic mat that his bowls sit on, but it's forever getting wet and smelly underneath. How this happens, I do not know. I've asked and he just refuses to tell me. I've been looking at a few things Steven and I could build but this actually seems it would work decently well for the space we currently have (which isn't much!). Also, I love how it's painted and classy and seems relatively easy to put together. 

Crafting for Baby - Softy Giraffe from My Farm Life Diary

Someday Crafts has published a recent series of "Crafting for Baby." I've kept a close eye on these posts as we are soon to have another little one join our family. 

And no, it's not mine. 

Kara, my sister, is expecting little Sophie in mid-May. 


This picture was from 2 weeks ago - 31 weeks along. Doesn't she look great?! 

Anyway, I think this little giraffe seems like a perfect welcome gift from this Auntie...
And I'm thinking purples and greens (since that's the color her nursery will be)!
7ish weeks to get this done...I think that'll work just fine!
