Phase one of introducing pink to Emerson's room in now complete.
I still have a few more things to add, but I thought I'd give you a quick update!
The Keep Calm poster is in place. A couple of people have asked where I got it. I ordered the poster from the KeepCalmPosters shop on Etsy. There were lots of different colors to choose from-- I went with Raspberry Kisses in the 13x19 size. I already had a frame for it at home (found in the as is section at Ikea for 10 bucks)-- all I needed was a custom cut matte to fit the poster. I went to Michaels, and it was going to be $40 to have it cut-- too much in my books. So I picked up a $10 "cut your own matte", used my 40% coupon, and gave it to Doug to figure out. He did a fabulous job! When it came time to hang it up Doug thought that we should put it over the change table... he figured that it would be a good reminder when we're in the midst of tackling a nasty diaper. But in the end we both agreed that it worked better on this wall.
I picked up this cute little gold number at Home Sense and popped in Emerson's ultrasound picture.
My next project was to DIY a crib sheet. I feel like I've looked everywhere to find a crib sheet that I like, and I can never find anything. Last week I was in Zellers and found a twin sheet set in this granny-ish floral print for $19.99. I thought it was so cute. I brought it home, cut down the flat sheet, sewed in some elastic around the bottom and made a sheet to fit Emerson's crib. It was so easy-- why have I not done this yet?!! I plan to save the original fitted sheet and pillow case for later when she moves into a real bed. I figure I have enough fabric left over to make a couple of throw pillows too. As I was cutting it out I thought to myself, "this room is totally going to be granny glam." I love it!
That's all I have for now!
