Introducing Jaxon’s nursery

by Jody on August 7, 2014, posted in Uncategorized

This has been a LONG time coming!  We finally are sharing with you Jaxon’s nursery!  I (Jody) have always been excited about decorating a nursery for our children, but  living in an apartment while pregnant as we awaited our home to be completed, definitely didn’t allow me to decorate our nursery before baby.  While I waited for an actual nursery to decorate, I busied myself planning and trying to figure out what I wanted. The only problem is I didn’t know where to begin.

I knew I wanted something cool and different than cars, cartoon animals or the ABCs (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but just not the direction I wanted to go in :).  After poking around online, my ideas started coming together and below you’ll see the creative process of decorating for the nursery!

I started off by scouring Pinterest after looking at a lot of nursery ideas and then I found a color palette that I liked on Design Boards.

Last week we showed you how we decorated our home with canvases from our family shoot taken by Amy and Jordan Photography.  This week, we want to show you what else we did with images from the family session.

(Specific product information is listed at the bottom of this post)

When we were building our home, we had a light fixture installed in the ceiling of one of our hallways because we knew we wanted to light a photo display.

Ahhhh!  We were so pumped to have our first family photo session taken of Jaxon two months ago by Amy and Jordan Photography and yes, it has taken us this long to decide on final prints and get them ordered.  :)

We are excited to share with you Part One of how we have decorated our walls with this photo session.

We have a front room in our new home that was slated to be the formal dining room, but since we never used our formal dining room in our old place, we decided to use it for something else. It is currently serving as a sitting room of sorts, which we actually have utilized quite a bit!

Our house… in the middle of our street

by Jody on June 27, 2014, posted in Personal Fun

Contrary to what the title of this post reads, our house isn’t REALLY in the  middle of our street… the song was just in my head :)

Sooooo yes, onto our house!!  We have been so busy with trucking along with life that once we got everything unpacked we have ever so slowly been finalizing the rooms as a spare moment makes itself available.

I thought that we would go ahead and update you with the latest ideas we have going on and then soon enough, you will be able to see the finished work!!
