Nursery phase one

Today I started painting the Dr. Seuss mural in the nursery and I have to say I was a little scared at first that it wouldn't come out the way I envisioned it. I am pleasantly surprised thus far, I have Horton traced and painted gray and thing 1 and thing 2 traced and painted. Here is how it looks so far hope you all like it as much as I do.

That is the end result after my hard day of work. Here are some photos of how it all started this morning.
The top photo is the outline of thing 1 and thing 2 and the bottom is Horton not quit all the way painted.

Thing 1 and thing 2 with just their awesome blue hair painted. Finally getting somewhere.

Horton all painted gray, yippie. Now he just needs facial features and and outline, that will come later.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 with the rest of their bodies painted in. I will added their faces and lettering on their stomach next. Can't wait to see the finished product. I still need to draw the lorax trees and the balloon from oh the places you'll go and paint those. Lots of work to be done but progress if being made. I will keep you all posted on the progress. I leave you with one more photo of the progress thus far.

Oh yeah and I still need to paint the rest of the grass on the bottom of the wall but that's easy work :). The other 3 walls of the nursery are going to be light and darker green stripes. Hope you have a great Wednesday and I will be sure to post phase two when it's complete.

I'm back

We'll it has really been too long since I've made a post, but what can I say I've been a busy lady. Lots of things have happened in the past few months, I have no projects to share on this post but, soon there will be lots of fun posts for you to enjoy and maybe even a few tutorials. So here is a few of the things that have been occupying my time recently.

1. I'm pregnant, whoop!! It's a girl, she is due Dec. 5th I can't wait to meet her.
2. Getting the nursery ready, we decided to go with a Dr. Seuss theme tomorrow I'm going to start painting the mural. I'm excited and a little nervous I really hope it turns out like I picture it.
3. Making diaper bags, blankets, toys, and clothes for my little girl.
4. Deciding on a name for her, I think we finally decided on Ella Sophie we are still trying out but so far its the winner.
5. Researching baby items, who knew there was so much stuff you could get for such a small person. I had no idea.

Here is our little bundle of joy for your viewing pleasure, be careful not to look to long she is super cute.

This is Ella's side profile at 19 weeks. She is so cute I can't wait to get to hold her. Oh and before I forgot one more update as of last Friday I am officially a stay at home mom to be, it's going to be an exciting new world for me and I can't wait. I hope everyone is having a great week and hopefully I will have some crafty updates soon.
