I've finally reached my favorite part of having babies. It's the part where other people stay up all night with them and do all of the work while I just paint cute name signs for their nursery walls. Don't get me wrong, I love babies.
Heck, I love children of pretty much every age...including the grown men and ladies who appear to have suddenly taken the place of not only my two sons but those of my sister's children as well. I'm still trying to figure out how it happened...and when. I swear, I didn't look away, for even a second. Before I knew it, my babies were grown and the oldest is graduating college in a few short weeks.
Of course, I still relish the opportunity to help decorate the nurseries of my friends. A couple of years ago, a dear friend had a little boy who was to be named, "Gavin". His nursery theme was "Noah's Ark" and the photo above was the first letter of the nursery name sign that I panted for him. You can see the rest of Gavin's Noah's ark theme name wall art here.
Last summer, when that same friend told me that she was having another baby, I secretly hoped that she'd have a little girl because, let's be honest after raising two sons, I find that there can never be enough opportunities for pink "girly" things in my life.
Sweet Sophia, her brother Gavin, and her parents are moving into their new home next week and I wanted to make sure that when the time comes for Sophia to have her nursery set up, she'll have a bit of artwork on her walls.
A couple of weeks ago, I got out my craft paint and the canvases that I purchased at Michaels last fall before we moved (hard to believe that I could actually find them) and I painted these canvases for her.
