    Default Busy Day (lots of pics)

    I bought some wooden letters for Ryleigh's room, covered them with paper using Mod Podge and then embellished them. I really like how they turned out:







    I also painted the flowers in the nursery. Everything is done in there. All we need now is a baby!!!

    Little background- My grandparents raised me and my g'pa passed away when I was in HS. We called him "Poppy". I really wanted to name a girl that but DH just never really cared for it. Too out of the box for him! So, I needed to compromise but still wanted to somehow use the poppy. Since we did the nursery in red I thought I could paint poppy flowers. That would suffice! I found a pic of a field of poppies and it all came into place!!







    Greg and I hung the butterflies:







    And I made 2 more burpcloths:



    I think that is it!

    Those letters are great! I love her room and I'm sure she'll love it too! Thanks for continuing to share with us.

    BTW do you do the embrodery with a sewing machine? That is really neat.

    It is all so cute, you did such an amazing job....it makes me want to re-decorate our nursery...but DH would have my head

    And I am totally lifting your idea to Mod Podge the letters. I bought them for Wyatt's room months ago and haven't quite figured out what to do with them.
