Firstly, I want to take a quick second to say Hello to all my new Friends (Followers). Thank you for taking time to read my humble little blog and please don’t be shy, I love to interact and chat with all of you.
Now that we’re moved and mostly settled its time to start working on the Lair (Aka. the Nursery). While I’m not planning to paint and go overboard ( As we’ll be PCSing next Oct.). I do plan on making it look as lovely as I can. I went fabric shopping on Black Friday at JoAnn’s thanks to a 20% off coupon, a 50% off coupon, and most things being marked down. I got all of the material I need (as well as some from my stash) to make all the nursery decor.
The Quilt is going to be in various prints and shades of black, grey and whites. I blogged about the pattern I chose not to long ago. Its called “spiderwebs”. Bumpers will be used but I’m making them thinner than normal bumpers. I found Lime and white Houndstooth flannel for $1.25 a yard. So I bought the whole bolt. Its going to be the Inside print to the bumpers, back of the quilt, and valance for the window.
|IKEA Somnat Crib.|
We’re getting our crib from Ikea. Its the Lime green Somnat. It worked out perfectly that My Mum in Law and Little Sis in Law are flying in to Orlando for the Holiday and there just so happens to be an Ikea there for us to pick it up. I’m over the moon about getting the crib that I want and for such a great price. It is a nonconvertible crib, which is what I wanted due to us wanting to have more than one child.
All artwork for the walls is going to be original pieces drawn by me. My sketch pad has been by my side a lot lately plus it gives me something to do at doctors appointment and when I’m laying on the couch at night.
I have to put a few things on the back burner until Little Venom arrives. Like the Monogram letters, and adding a few gender specific things (and lets not for get the Tutu making if Venom turns out to be Miss Venom.) I’m adding a Link to my Nursery to do list under my Header so you can follow along with my Nursery related post and Progress.
