Hello everyone. I hope your January is going well. I am writing from scenic Washington today. I say scenic, but as per usual for me when I travel, it has been pretty overcast for the time I’ve been here. However, I have still been having fun champagne tasting, cider tasting, board game playing, and going to a super cute picture book themed baby shower. It’s been a blast and I am only half way through my trip.
I’ve also been working on an amazing new project. In March, my sister and brother-in-law are having their first child and I will get a new nephew. I am super excited. When they told me they were expecting, they asked if there was any way I would be interested in helping them set up a nursery for their baby. I couldn’t be more excited about a project. I have never done anything like this before, and, while I am nervous about this, I am happy to challenge myself with something new!
The theme for the room is hot air balloons. I wish I could take credit for coming up with such a great idea but that was entirely my sister. So cute and creative right? We have painted the room a beautiful grey blue color. Next I got to work planning the accent wall. I will be painting animals in hot hair balloons on this wall. So far, I have drawn some concept pictures, made a stencil, and planned a preliminary layout. Here are some of the sketches. I will share more pictures as soon as it is finished. follow my instagram to see pictures as I make progress! ( hopefully I’ll be able to get better pictures of the finish)
