It’s no secret around these parts that I have a little blog crush on Jordan of Ramshackle Glam. I’ve been reading the blog since it’s inception and find her to be both beautiful on the inside and out. Years ago, I guest posted for her community section in a Mommy, Ever After post about my daughter’s enchanted garden nursery and we have stayed in touch over the years, developing an online friendship of sorts. I have followed her through her wilder Manhattan days (think middle of the night dance parties to Aerosmith with her musician husband) to her first pregnancy and now suburban motherhood. She is currently pregnant with her second child, a girl, and it was my honor to make a special bedroom addition gift for both the baby girl and the big brother.
This is very timely, I think, as she just shared the complete and amazing makeover of her son’s nursery to “little boy’s room”.
It’s just perfect. And I hope that my small gift can bring their family, a special, vibrant, colorful and kind one, great joy.
Here is the process:
On the left is for big brother, and a quote from the Eagles song “Ol’ 55”, which they sing together each night. The right is for baby girl, and of course a quote from Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” which was kind of a no brainer. I mean come on.
I hope these hang happily in their home, as happiness is what this beautiful, growing family deserves.
…Three days later…
She just received the canvasses and put this photo up on her instagram. I hope she and her family enjoy them for years to come.
