Forever Young by Bob Dylan – Free Printable!

Forever Young Lyrics - Free PrintableI’ve been sitting on this post  for a while – – I meant to post this a loooong time ago! My super cool cousin-in-law contacted me last year about making some nursery art for our other cousin-in-law who was pregnant with her first child.

They love Bob Dylan (baby was aptly named Dylan, by the way), and this song in particular, so she thought it would be a great idea to print out the lyrics for their nursery. I agreed! I thought it was so great, in fact, that I did the same for Vaughn’s nursery…which I haven’t shown you yet… because it’s still in progress… because I’m lazy  I’ve been busy.

The lyrics speak to everyone, especially little boys and girls and they totally make me tear up every time I read them. The song itself is beautiful too, you can hear it here. There is another more recent version that is awesome too, by Rhiannon Giddens and Iron & Wine (love), which you can listen to here.

I Dig You, Valentine!

My three year old is obsessed (OBSESSED!!!!!) with all things construction lately. We happen to have a lot of road work and building going on ’round these parts too, so every time we get in the car and leave our neighborhood, my son is in his glory – calling out the names of every construction truck he sees. Digger! Excavator! Bulldozer! Crane Truck! Dump Truck! Jackhammer! Forklift! Oh yes, he knows them all. I do too now, thanks to him. 🙂

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share his obsession with his classmates, so I started digging around online (see what I did there?) and found these cute little pull-back diggers on Amazon. Digger Close Up

To make them cute, my good friend Target helped me with some felt hearts and party bags, and I created my own little digger valentine on cardstock (Thank you, Google Images). 🙂

Camouflage Your Unsightly Tech Gear

Easy (And Cute!) Way to Hide Your Tech Gear!

I am 33 weeks pregnant, which means I have less than 2 months until my due date (although between you and me I think probably less!). Hubbo and I have been working on getting Baby #2’s room finished and preparing ourselves mentally for the sleepless nights and zombie-like days ahead.

Unsightly Tech Gear

Unsightly Tech Gear

In order to make room for #2 (sorry, we STILL haven’t picked a name – we probably won’t until wee SEE him!), I had to give up my office/craft/junk room. In that room resides all of our techie stuff — including the cable modem and wireless router. Now, being the geeky girl that I am, I love that stuff, I mean I really do – I totally geeked out when I got to go pick out a new one. However, I don’t think the baby will appreciate the black plastic and green flashing lights. Well, maybe he will, but it is unsightly, especially in an infant’s bedroom!

Unfortunately I have to leave them where they are, so that left me with the challenge of figuring out a way to hide them. This post has the masterpiece (ha) that I came up with: I took a cardboard box, cut it, slapped some pretties on it, and called it a day.

Hiding the unsightly tech gear!

But it’s cute! I will use it as a frame to hold the baby’s announcement card — right now it holds my PERFECT baby shower invite in just the right colors that my thoughtful sister in law picked out. 🙂 The great thing about this is you can make it however you like — you can just make a pretty facade or put a frame on it to hold a picture. Anything is better than the black plastic and blinking lights!

I’ve made the tutorial pretty self explanatory with the pictures, but here is the supply list! Obviously you can customize the “shield” with any type of style/decor that suits the room in which you’re needing to camouflage your tech gear.

TECH GEAR HIDER SUPPLIES:IMG_6931

  • Box – width and height large enough to cover the gadget(s). You can use cereal boxes taped together if you want!
  • Scissors
  • Pretty Paper – I used two 12×12 pieces since that was the size of my box, and a few smaller pieces for the insets/frame portion. It’s just like making a scrapbook page!
  • Clothespin (mine is a mini)
  • Tape runner or other scrapbook glue
  • Foam Sticky Dot
  • Tape

1. Take your box and cut two opposing sides off of it:IMG_6937IMG_6939

 

 

 

 

 

2. Use your tape to reinforce the back of it (depends on the type of box you are using)IMG_6943

3. Flip your box over and cut and glue your scrapbook paper to the sides of the box. My box was 12x12x6 so this was easy for me to do – just had to cut one piece of paper in half for the sides. IMG_6944IMG_6945

4. Glue and place your front scrapbook piece(s) to make it pretty!IMG_6947

5. Use your sticky dots to glue your clothespin to the top center of your “frame”

IMG_6952

6. I decided to cut a circle to cover my clothespin — I used the tape runner to stick the circle to the top of the clothespinIMG_6953

7. Reinforce the front edges with tape, so that the paper doesn’t curl after time. This isn’t necessary if you properly glue the paper down, and a matted tape would look better, but I used what I had! I didn’t want the red of the box showing through between the papersIMG_6957IMG_69598. Add the final touch – in this case it is my shower invite. But I will switch it out with the birth announcement once baby arrives!

Pretty!

Pretty!

And that’s it! It reminds me of elementary school, when we sat at tables and took tests, they put those big shields at our seat so we couldn’t look over at our neighbor’s work. It does the trick and alleviates my hubbo’s concern that anything I made would be a potential fire hazard if it touched the gadgets underneath or covered them on top.

How do you hide your tech gear? I’ve never had the need to hide it before since it was in the office!

XOXO, D
