So - speaking of journey and the last ten months... I have a little project I'm working on. The girls nursery (you know, the one they started actually sleeping in last month!) is a work in progress. We keep adding things here and there, but there is a wall above their changing table that has nothing on it at all. What I want to do is create an art wall and I was hoping you guys could help us.
As part of their birthday celebration, I'm asking our friends and family to create* art for their wall. If there is really no art medium you are comfortable with, we'd also love quotes on cards, postcards, etc. that I can frame and hang up.
We'd like to stick with the following themes:
- Travel (journeys, maps, transportation, landmarks)
- Sisters/Twins/Best Friends
- I love the idea of doing something that indicates where everyone who is special to our family lives. I might end up taking a map and using pins. I was also thinking of framing postcards from where our loved ones are: Bakersfield, Burbank, Seattle, Austin, Washington DC, etc, but I would need those sent to me. I have a Bakersfield one somewhere, but it says "Bakersfield Sucks" so... I'm not so sure about that one. ;)
Anyway. That's my big idea! Our friends and family have been so giving of their love and support for our girls and our entire family and I can't think of a better way to celebrate that than to fill this blank wall I've been staring at with art from you so the girls can enjoy it every day. I can already imagine pointing out pieces to the girls and them learning who each piece is from.
*If you're up for painting something, message me and I would be happy to send you a 5x5 or 8x10 canvas. :)
