Arts & Crafts

We decided a while ago that we will not change the nursery that we prepared for Lucas. We had put it together with so much love, hope and joy while preparing for Lucas' arrival. After not too much debate, we decided that it would only be right for Peanut to use his big brother's nursery as would most likely be the case if Lucas would still be here on earth with us. However, we thought that we should add a few little touches to make it special for Peanut as well since we are filled with joy and anticipation to meet this little guy.

My latest project involved a little arts & crafts and I thought I'll share. We went to IKEA and bought some plain white picture frames since the furniture in the nursery is white. I then thought that a white frame with white matting ... well, is just a little too white for my taste especially in a children's room. Here is what I did in pictures and I just love the results.

I started out with the plain white frame and scrapbook paper. I also bought some safari animal themed scrapbook stickers since the bedding and the rest of the room has a safari animal theme.

We have another ultrasound on Monday to check on his growth. Can't meet to see the little man again.

I then went ahead and cut the scrapbook paper to cover the white matting and added the little animal stickers to the three frames. The stickers are 3D and look really cute.

And last but not least, I had the hub hang the frames and now we are just waiting to fill them with precious pictures of our little Peanut (only 27 more days till my due date, but maybe he'll come sooner).

We have another ultrasound on Monday to check on the little man's growth. I can't wait to see him and I hope that he will be more coorperative with the pictures this time. I want to get a glance at his cute little face. I can't believe how close we are and I can't wait to hold him in my arms.


  1. You are an artist!!!!!! I love it!!!
    How did your sonogram go today? Were you able to see his face today or is he still shy? I bet you are counting the hours now.
    The nursery is precious and I am sure little Lucas would be happy to share it with his little brother.
    Love you!!!!!

  2. The frames look awesome! I've been thinking of you!
