Thanks to everyone who poured out their love on my blog in regards to my daughter. During the past week, the temperature here in Georgia took a downward plunge. It suddenly became very cold, and this triggered her illness. Thankfully, she is doing a lot better.
Well my friends, it is now 'crunch time', and I am smiling on the inside. Why? Because I am imagining all the participants (including myself) 'scurrying' around trying to finish in time for reveal day :-) This is so much fun. I feel like a kid again, excited and anxious to see all the goodies everyone will present.
Here's what I accomplished this week.
I spray-painted the table. I needed the paint to set in really well before putting it back together. Here's the before:
I also did a layout of how I would like to have the kids' photos hung on the wall.
I am contemplating spray-painting both letters (representative of their initials) different colors to make them pop. The space to the right of the 'P' will be filled by the thermostat :-) I might put something to the left of it or just leave it blank. The two artworks to the top left/right has their
- full names
- birth date/year
- weight/height at time of birth
- time of birth (and)
- location of birth
This was a DIY. I got the idea from one I saw online couple years ago. Unfortunately I was not yet on Pinterest so I do not have a source to link to. The two small frames hold photocopies of my kids' footprints received from the hospitals they were born. I will give a better closeup of these on reveal day after they are hung.
Be sure to check out the other One Room Challenge participants for this week, and do have a great weekend!
