Crafty DIY Baby Shower

You know those moments where you’re completely overwhelmed with how generous others are? I’ve been fortunate enough to have three of those instances in the past month.DIY Baby Shower

To have one baby shower is far too generous, but the women surrounding me have blessed me with three, which has been overwhelmingly appreciated as I’ve thanked my lucky stars for such a strong support system. Doug’s mom and sisters threw us a shower, my mom and step-mom joined forces and threw a second, and my close girlfriends rallied to do a third in Chicago. Literally pinching myself over here.

While each one deserves a post on its own, I’m so excited to show you a peek into the shower that was here in Chicago, because it’s a DIY lover’s dream! My girlfriends thought of so many thoughtful touches.
