I am loving how this project turned out. It was my first time to tackle something so big-an entire room!! My friend, Jen, who I had only just met, convinced me of the need to celebrate a fourth boy-she is qualified to do this having four boys of her own. Plus she loves to decorate and the wall tatoos were 90% off! She painted in a few areas that needed more than a tatoo and spent hours helping me make decisions and rub on tatoos!
My friend Emberlee gave the cute stuffed animals. Lisa and Emily did some tatoo rubbing. So did Josh, and he put in a dimmer over the changing area so we don't blind the baby. He also spoiled me in letting me get a great chair. My friend Terri did the vinyl letters and we added butterfly tatoos and crickets into them making it all come together. I'm just thrilled with it. Without friends and sales, and second hands, there is no way I could have pulled this off. Thanks everyone!
Oh ya, the words around the room are the lyrics to a hymn and say, "All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all."
That was 100% my idea (about the only thing that I can claim credit for).
Again, thanks everyone for helping our family get excited for this lil' guy.
If your in the area, please stop by and take a look! I can't find my camera (need to before baby comes) so the pictures from my phone really aren't the best.
