Getting ready for baby...

I LOVE not finding out the sex of my babies. It truly is an amazing experience for us, each and every time. I know being surprised isn't for everyone, but I wouldn't do it any other way for us. However, one of the challenges is not being able to really set up the nursery before the baby gets here. I am not a gender-neutral kind of gal, so I usually wait until I know my baby's sex to buy the bedding and decorations. Since our babies always stay in our room for awhile, anyway, it's not such a big deal, but I do get eager to get things going ;-) This time around I decided to make this sign for baby's door. I thought the blues would work if it were a boy, and I thought the flowers and beads would make it work if it is a girl. Of course, Tony things it's way too feminine, lol, so I think if it's a boy, I may have to take the beaded hanger off ;-).
Papers and letters are American Crafts, stickpins are Jenni Bowlin, and I got the wooden plaque and beads at Michaels.

So, it's CHA time! I'm so jealous of my friends who are there, as I had a blast at the winter show! Maybe next year! I'm loving lots of the peeks i'm seeing, though, so I can't wait to get my hands on some of the new stuff coming out :-)

Hope everyone's week is starting off well!
