Welcome to Indie Sprout!


I am getting geared up to start sharing things from my little corner of the world. I am now just entering my third trimester with my very first child, and I am so excited to become a mother!

I plan on showing the transformation of the nursery for my incubating little one step-by-step. Think gnomes and toadstools an other woodland delights with a mix of modern and vintage and hand crafted goodness.

I also plan on giving tutorials and showing you all the lovingly hand crafted goodies I make for my little one: from stuffed snail dolls to cute little baby dresses made with my stash of vintage fabric.

I also want to showcase the brilliantly crafty ideas and inspiration that I find to spark your creativity!

And of course, I want to also see and share what all you do too, so expect some contests with prizes too!

A little about me:

My name is Elke.
I live in Tallahassee, Florida.
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas.
My father is a Texan through and through.
My mother is Dutch.
I speak Dutch fluently, although at an elementary school level.
I went to college in Olympia, Washington (go Evergreen!)
I met the man of my dreams (August) in Mammalogy class.
The first gift I gave August was a dead skunk, which he proceeded to skin and stuff into the most perfect museum specimen, from then on we knew it was love.
I married August in 2004 in our favorite park to go birding in by our favorite college professor.
We have adopted three lovely stubborn puppies over the years: Cooper (beagle), Audrey (basset hound), and Windom (dachshund).
My kitty, Kennis, is now 14 years old, and has been with me since college.
I found out I was pregnant in February 2009.
I am currently reading Alice in Wonderland to my baby and my husband.
My baby girl is due October 13, 2009.
Once I have my baby girl, my life will never be the same and I can't wait!

More to come soon...
