getting ready….

the baby room is pretty much ready, so i thought i’d show off a few pictures.  we left the queen size bed in there in case we have an abundance of guests sometime and because i learned the first time that having a bed in the same room as the baby can sometimes come in… handy.

IMGP6805i’m especially fond of these “clouds” created after i 1) found a big batch of embroidery hoops at the dig-n-save, 2) was inspired by this beautiful nursery and 3) had a “ladies craft night” at my house where friends generously created these works of art for me to display. IMGP6807

there’s sort of a cloud “theme” going on in the room, so i also made this mobile:IMGP6812

the art on this wall is a combination of etsy artists and my own work (done in my ‘craft lab’ program at the library)IMGP6813 IMGP6817

i also screen printed the curtain for the closet at work.  we got a new screen printing kit and, of course, i needed to learn how to use it, so i sketched out this design, burned the screen and the printed it onto a grey bedsheet.  i really love how it turned out!

and here’s a cute pillow i made:

of course, there’s still one or two things i’d like to add to the room eventually, but it’s feeling fairly finished at this point and i’m so pleased with how it’s turned out!  i hope new baby likes it too…

    ADORABLE!!!!! The room looks delightful. Wishing you and your family all the best!
    We’re getting ready to set up a baby room of our own, so I’ll likely borrow some of your ideas!

    I love that we will both have new babies right around the same time. You were such a help to me early on in our journey and though we’ve come to it in different ways, I like that we can share this commonality! Great looking room!

    The room looks awesome. When will the new little one get here and will it be a boy or girl? I am so happy for you and your family. I know Gabriel will make a terrific big brother.
