I have realized in the last few weeks that the Nesting frenzy that supposedly happens to pregnant women is not a myth. It is one of the few things I can really say they speak the truth about before you get pregnant. I have a lot of ideas and I am gathering supplies and making little things and getting just generally very excited. Our theme for Carl’s Nursery is Adventure! We are incorporating maps and travel themes and general means of transportation. Its sort of a part UP!, part antique map room, part library. I think  it is  going to be the neatest Nursery any baby ever has. I’m really rather excited. This weeks round up is just a few of the ideas and projects and I am working on.




1. I really like this Nursery from Project Nursery!

2. I already have the wood for an awesome Growth Ruler.

9. I have ordered some wooden letters already to decoupage with map paper like these.

Decoupage Letters. Use vintage maps and cut out letters to spell out "baby" or the baby's name for the backdrop to your baby shower.

10. And finally, I love the idea of this neat heart art. One heart is where Dad was born, one where Mom was born and one where baby was born.
