2012 is going to be a huge year for us. I can't wait to see what happens.


  1. I just now found your blog and there are so many cute things, I had to follow! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the argyle wall!!! I'm all for alternative colors for nurseries and babies and this is great! I wish I had seen it 3 years ago when I was pregnant. :-) Good luck in 2012 and congrats on all the projects you finished in 2011.

  2. Audrey's nursery is GORGEOUS! How did I miss the argyle wall post? I was laid off last year too, only mine was by email. ??? I guess that is par for the course in the digital age. I am very excited for you--little girls are so much fun. My only piece of advice--break the pacifier habit early. Sigh.

  3. You sure have an eye for what looks great and are talented in bringing your ideas to life. I have ideas in my head, but am not so great at bringing them to life :-P

    Congrats on your pregnancy! The nursery looks amazing!

  4. Love the recap! What a year. I really, really love the green in the nursery. It looks great :)

  5. Just saw your nursery at DIY showoff and I must say I love it! I'm also pregnant but we don't want to find out the sex of the baby so I'm like that your nursery isn't too boyish or girlish.

  6. Can't wait to see your baby girl :)

  7. As someone interested in embroidery and digitizing services, the Embroidery Digitizing Company UK is home to some fantastic companies specializing in this field. The attention to detail and quality craftsmanship offered by these companies is truly commendable.
