My little adventure ….. Made by mum with ❤️

I always loved making things and I always was very visual, artistic (that’s probably why I am a Visual Merchandiser Manager). I started making things for Chloe: bows, headbands, little decorations for her nursery. After encouragement from friends I decided to come out of the closet  and show what I do, see if people will like it, and if they will be willing to pay for it …. 

 So here it is a very very small preview of what I have produced  and a little taste of what is to come …. 



I am becoming an emotional wreck! Last week I was emotional because my little baby somehow overnight has changed in to a big baby (I still cannot bring myself to call her a toddler!). This week I am a total emotional mess because it is my last week of maternity leave which means settling sessions at the nursery and trying to stop ignoring the fact that I am going back to work on Monday ! 

 I just have left Chloe at the nursery on her own for longer than 15 minutes (we started settling in session last week but I was there with her having fun and only left the room for 15 minutes). I have left her doing her first ever painting, seeing her at the table with the apron on starting to do her painting …. I got so emotional that I almost burst out crying ! 

Today was only to hours which Chloe apparently really enjoyed; tomorrow I will have to leave her from 9am till 2 pm …. How will I do that??? … This whole experience is so emotional and stressful! 


 It’s official, my maternity leave is coming to an end very soon NO NO NO NO!!!! 😭 I have 5 weeks left and then I have to go back to work. First 3 months I will work 4 days a week. After the first 3 months I will be back at work full time; that is 5 days a week, 40 hours a week, 2400 minutes away from my precious little girl every single week. This means that I won’t see her in the morning, I won’t get her dressed, I won’t give her her breakfast, I won’t be playing with her, cuddling her, kissing her until 5pm when I will be back home from work…. Just thinking about it makes me cry! How will I do it? How will I cope with it?  

 This week we start settling in sessions at the nursery which Chloe will attend 2 days a week. We also will start teaching grandparents how to look after Chloe and slowly start leaving Chloe with them. I know that I have to do it so Chloe gets used to being without me but isn’t it ridiculous ? Isn’t it ridiculous that I am expected to leave my baby when the only thing I want to do is to have her next to me all the time so I can enjoy every second that I have left of my maternity leave? 

 I am trying to make the most of the 5 weeks left …There seems to be way too many things that I should do while I am still off, and every day things that I have to do …  

 My mum had 4 kids and was working full time and she has done an amazing job bringing us up… Everyone keeps telling me that after a few days back at work I will be fine …. I know that this is life and you just get on with it and make the most of what you have … But right now I don’t know how I will do it…. This will be up there with one of the hardest things that I have had to do in life …

My gorgeous girl is now 10 months old. I remember how exciting I got when I was decorating her room… And crazy buying all of those things that you see in the shops, all of those things that you see on the nursery photos on the internet and in the magazines. The reason why I write it is because lots of those things shouldn’t be used in a baby room!!! As Chloe was growing and changing I was finding out more about having baby, her needs, dos and donts and I discovered that I had to remove lots of things out of her room as they were /are dangerous.

Some examples:

– Cot bumper

 I was shopping for one for months ! This was such a key accessory in the room, it had to be perfect ! What I discovered is that you shouldn’t use them when baby is little because there is a link between using it and cot death. As they grow a bit bigger it’s dangerous as they start pulling it up, looking underneath it etc. I know that because as soon as I moved Chloe in to her cot at 6months (with the bumpers on) she was pulling it in all directions, getting her head undernight it … I had to remove the bumper straight away.

 Cot bar bumpers are a good solutions for babies over 6 months (not recommend before that) as they can’t be pulled off/up.You can also buy breathing cot bumpers. 

– Cot conopy

 Bought one to go over the cot … Was going for the cute, soft, princess look … Turns out as soon as they can grab things and reach with theirs arms it’s a very big risk … Which doesn’t go away till they are 2 years old ?3 years old?. I had removed my one before Chloe was born and decided to use it later. Recently I used it to create cosy reading corner ….

Uuhhhhgggg bad decision , 9 months old baby will be just pulling it, getting it round herself … which is very dangerous. So I just got rid of it for good.

Duvet covers

 You look at the huge choice of the cutest duvet covers you have seen and you are trying to find one which will compliment your baby’s nursery …. Babies aren’t allowed to sleep under the duve until 1 year old (or even older) because it’s a suffocating risk. 

Accesories to go in to the cot . 

Again you never see just plain cot in the display; it’s always dressed up and finished with cute cushions and cuddly toys. The only but is … Your baby shouldn’t have anything in the cot until they are older because it’s a risk. And it is better to be safe than sorry in my opinion. 

SAFE DOESNT MEAN BORING OR UGLY!   There is so much you can do to make the baby room look great but safe as well. It will also save you lots of money which is handy when you need to buy everything at once ! 

 Instead of buying duve covers just invest in a statement fitted sheets, you can buy pretty printed ones or bold colour ones; baby’s fitted sheets don’t have to (shouldn’t) be white. This is an example of one of Chloe’s fitted sheets.   

You can find very good selection in Mamas & Papas, Marks & Spencer, Nubie.

 Instead of Conopy you can just go for a some sort of statement pice hanging over the cot or on the wall above the cot. 

– Very popular are Pom poms which come in lots of different colours and textures (paper and tulle). This is an example from Chloe’s room of tulle pom poms which I hanged over her reading/play corner. 

– You can get an amazing letters and spell baby name on the wall above the cot.  The choice of letteres is very big so you will definitely find something that you like. If not you can even design your own one.

– go with a bold print wallpaper, if you opt for this option you won’t need much more that that, as you need to keep the rest of the room quite simple to make the wallpaper stand out. 

– if you not in to the wallpapers or you just not brave enough, the great option is wall stickers. Again there is a very big selection of stickers so you should be able to find something to fit your scheme/taste. 


– or you could just paint something yourself? 😀

 And then there is an option of just adding lots of Accesories like curtains, ruggs, toys, pictures which can transform a plain room in to a very special nursery.
