P is for....

Hey all!  Hope you had a lovely weekend!  We spent lots of time trying to fix my poor hubbies iPad, which he busted :(  and then lots of down time trying to keep this cold from getting any worse.  But last week I took a few minutes to complete a little project for baby girl's nursery, and I'm really happy with how it turned out!

So a couple of things.  One, I haven't gotten to start on the actual nursery yet.  And I'm kinda starting to get this itch.  We are trying to figure out whether or not we will be moved before this little one arrives, so I can't really do anything to a room until that gets sorted out.  In the meantime, I have all these plans and ideas floating around in my head and, to satisfy the itch, have decided to work on some little projects.

Such as her gallery wall!  I want to do a little collage of artwork, pictures, a mirror, and..... a monogram!  I picked up my supplies at Joanns a couple weeks ago, and finally got around to putting it together :)

Start with a wooden letter of your choice, and some scrapbook paper.  I love how girly and sweet this simple pink striped paper is!

Flip your letter over on the back side of your paper, and trace it.  You want to make sure you trace your letter backwards, so it looks right when you are all done :)


Then brush a layer of modge podge onto your letter to act as glue.

Once you have your paper glued down on your letter, apply another layer of modge podge over it.  This helps to almost 'seal' the letter, and will keep it looking great for a long time!

Voila!  It doesn't get much easier than that :)

I can just picture it with a scrolly little mirror, and some pictures, hanging above her crib.  Now if only we could get moved, I could make my dreams come true!  But that, friends, is a story for another day :)


  1. So are you going to tell us what p name baby starts with?

  2. For right now she will just be baby p 😊 we'll announce her name officially once she is born!
