This past weekend I threw a baby shower, along with two other friends, for my dear friend Mariah. She and her husband tried three years to conceive, and after much heartbreak, found out they were pregnant the old fashioned way! God really worked in their lives and marriage through the "trying" part. It was such a thrill to finally be able to throw her a shower. She is having a girl.
I papered up this little journal to use for guests to sign and to write wished for the baby, and for a gift list. It was fun to pick out the different papers. I love scrapbook paper--it is an endless source of inspiration for my furniture painting--the designs and colors are wonderful. The journal was originally red, and you can still see that on the binding. The baby room will be done in pinks and reds and browns. I am decoratively painting the walls to match her crib set called cherry blossom. I am also painting furniture for baby's room. The book was a quick and fun project and will hopefully be a special keepsake for baby.
I've got some projects I am trying to finish up and will hopefully be showing you soon. Have a great middle of the week!
Edited to add:
I've been bood by sweet Julie at Orchard Street Cottage. Now I will have to pass this on--be ready!
