the big white thing on the wall with dots on it is an idea i got from miss kenra smoot (their little stella lou is about 8 wks old and we got to meet her yesterday). but on their blog i saw something like this above stella's crib and thought that maybe kendra had just stretched & stapled some fabric around a frame. i asked her about it last night and i was right! so thanks to kendra's creativity, lulu will have a little more color and girliness in her room.
you can kind of tell what that is above the crib, but not really. let me explain. the sheet is lulu's crib (bought by her lola) is white with tiny little polka dots that are brown and green. i thought the curtains and the accent wall would accentuate the small polka dots, but no cigar. so today i was in robert's craft store for like the third time in my life and next to the big canvases they had these smaller 5x7's. right then and there i had one of my first non-food-related creative idea. why not paint dots on the canvas and the put these cute adhesive aluminum letters right on top? the pic doesn't do it justice. :)
my mom actually made this quilt as soon as she found out i was pregnant with isaac, even thought we didn't know he was a he yet. but it adds a nice splash of color on the beige wall of the room i only committed to an accent wall (ie the green wall on the other side of the room) in...anyway, it compliments the bright, girly colors of the fabric i stretched too. me likey :)
