Step Stool Makeover

A while back when browsing Goodwill I came across this stool. It was only $2.99 but of course I hated the way it was painted and it was in pretty bad shape. Nothing a little paint can't fix! It took me several months to make time to finally get around to it, but I finally got it done. I used cream colored spray paint, a brown paint pen for the detail work and then covered it with a clear gloss finish.



Kora wanted so badly to be in some of these photos!

This Post is SUPER Late

I just came across these pictures of Kora's Valentine's while I was downloading some others and thought I would share. I know it is super late, but I just love them!

I used to sell Close to My Heart products so I have lots of stamping supplies and I love getting use out of them! I love these type writer key stamps that I used for the word LOVE, isn't that so fun!? So Kora got to give these out to her cousins and grandparents, attached to them is a yummy brownie.

Our Lil' Monkey

This baby boy is a mover! I love feeling the baby kicks in my belly, nothing is more reasuring to an expecting mom than feeling the baby move. The fun part is that those baby kicks are starting to be obvious from the outside of the belly more! I'm excited about that because it means this baby is getting bigger and stronger!

Now that I am beyond the halfway point I am finding myself more anxious about starting some of the planning for his arrival. The room we will use as the nursery is currently in use as Kora's playroom. I am really sad to see the playroom space go...but super excited about getting it set up! We will still wait till April or May to really transition the room, but I have started to look at bedding and color options for baby boys room. I am in love with the idea of a monkey themed room. Here is the monkey decor I will sort of follow when decorating his room.
