Baby on the Brain

Sorry for those of you who are not interested in baby things.  But here's more stuff I'm wanting to do, make, buy for the nursery! 
Josh loves bunnies, I love sweet simple photos, its a marriage made in heaven!  From The Animal Print Shop, great, simple photos of all kinds of animals.  

From HappyasLarry Designs, awesome rug!  If only it were a little cheaper or I could make something
As a more practical and affordable option for the floor, I got this rug from Urban Outfitters for the room.  Just to add a little brightness to the boring carpet we've got in there. 

Since I love type, and lately chunky geometric slab serif fonts like this one, I couldn't pass this up.  And I got it for Christmas, so exciting!  From William Dohman on Etsy.  And they have so many other great phrases too, this just was my favorite 'baby' phrase. 

Since I'm going all out multi-colored everything for pickle, why not this too?  Either I'll create it myself and frame it, or I'll make something similar for the birth announcement with maybe just a photo on the back.  We shall see....but love this overlapping type in block formation! Thanks for the inspiration Apple Blossom Print.

Baby Pickle's Room

We're having a baby!  Which has turned my mind towards decorating a baby's room, of  course. There's so much out there, I've been overwhelmed in a good way.  Here's what I know:
1. I don't like most pastel colors, I'm more a bright colored type person.  (think color wheel, primary colors etc). 
2. Most baby room themes don't appeal to me personally, I'm more intrigued by color and various graphics as a theme. 
3. The room is painted grey so I knew I'd have to have some exciting things on the walls to make the room feel like a 'kids' room.
Before/during/after pictures of the nursery to come and more awesome things that we're making/buying for pickle!  Here are a few of the things I've thought of, seen, gotten, thought about getting, or are on my list! Enjoy!

No this is not our nursery. :)  Just a cool nursery photo I found on Pinterest.  Love the idea of hanging ABC flash cards.  I'm also a big fan of this IKEA shelf filled with bright colored toys, books, bright colored bins etc. 
For the flash cards, I stumbled across this amazing illustrator!  Lorena Siminovich, check her out, I love everything she does!

Custom Baby Annoucement

Sorry for the immense delay!  More on that later, but for now something new I've recently finished.  A few months ago I was lucky enough to design a match letter for some friends of mine wanting to adopt [full post here].  This was such a great project and I have now been lucky enough to design their baby announcment now that they've been blessed with a precious baby boy!  What an awesome thing to be part of!  :)

P.S. This baby announcement was a custom design, made especially to their tastes/wants.  If you ever thing of anything you'd like me to do let me to design especially for you, let me know!  I also can do the printing and incorporate the costs to the total price so its easy-peasey for you!
