A Celestial Baby Shower

This past weekend I had the pleasure of having another amazing baby shower hosted by close friends. These are some extremely crafty and creative ladies who put on an AWESOME celestial themed baby shower for Baby Bruckner! It was an intimate gathering of people that have at one point worked with me and it was really special. We have great women that come through our doors and I was honored to spend my Sunday with them. Now on to the shower! (Photos by Sara Faris – Hostess)

{ACTIVITY} – I guess word got out that I didn’t have many burp cloths and thus, they provided the guests (who are all creative types) with some sharpies and got them to work on some “Alien” burp cloths for BBB. (Baby Boy Bruckner)

Space, the First Frontier

Hello world!

As I am the one currently “cooking” a little man I thought my first post could be about my design inspiration for our nursery and how the progress is going. I’m currently 7 months pregnant and deep into the nesting phase. I’m told I should try and bottle this energy and determination, because really, it’s insane. Several times a day I start thinking about how I need to clean the cabinets under my kitchen sink, repaint the foyer to cover scratches, and then remove cat hair from EVERYTHING.

Anyways.. back to the design. I’ve been following the blog LayBabyLay by Joni Lay (a fellow Georgia Tech Industrial Design Grad AND a sorority sister of mine) feverishly even before I found out I was expecting. She has amazing taste and really fun ideas for how to create a stylish nursery that isn’t overdone or from a ‘kit.’ The one that really caught my eye was called Stargazing Little Scientist-Revisited. If you know me then you know I love some grey, so obviously that was going to happen. My main takeaways from this inspiration included use of navy and mint, celestial maps, a refined space theme for my husb, and grey. We will be using a few things already owned and being refinished (more on that later!). Here’s the board:
