If you ever want finger waves but don't think you can do them yourself, check out a local beauty school. They may hate you for it, but they know how to do them. haha. I had to learn in order to take my state boards. I only had one person ever come in for them, and at first I was miffed, but once I got to it I started to have fun. And they looked really cute when it was dry.
do you mind if I ask when you took your state boards, and in what state? i am curious. we had to learn to do them as well but they are not part of the Pennsylvania exam. and yes any beauty student will hate having to do them on you. they are difficult, especially if you are just learning. be sure to tip them well and let them know you appriciate them doing it Smiley

Hopefully we don't have any surprises, but she waited untill month 8 to let the goods be seen  Grin A bashful girl! I completely forgot to post pictures of the room finished, and not in pieces lol. I will put them up tonight when I get home. The crib, my favorite, is just a dream to look at!

I have spent 9 long months working (slowly) on my baby's nursery. We didn't know the sex until a few days ago when we had to have a special US. Well it is a GIRL!! Willow Susan should be gracing us with her presence any time now, so I had to get the room done done done. Nesting instinct here I go! So here are the fruits of my labors Smiley

I started with white walls and an empty room! Don't mind the clutter in some of the pics hehe, I am still cleaning up!

I painted the walls a buttery yellow and put up border in Cathy Heck's "Little Pond" pattern, which the nursery is based on. I covered this hideous lamp, sorry I don't have a before pic, and painted it white. It looked like it belonged in a 1970's basement before!

The dresser came next. It had been mine all my life, and has suffered many paint jobs, but here is before:

and here is after. I hand painted the baby giraffe from the pattern on the top drawer.

I made covers for the changing pad, and some sides for the table as well to keep things from being shoved off the shelves.

this is a close up of the fabric in "Little Pond."

The rocking chair was a bit beat up and got a new cover too.

and here is a close up of the upholstery fabric for the chair and ottoman.

I made a ruffle for above the window, and a bed skirt as well. I only have a photo of the ruffle.

I made a wall hanging out of a piece you are supposed to use to make a blanket. I already purchased the blanket with my bumpers and head board so I thought it would make a nice decoration.

I lastly, finding out it was a girl, made Willow a wall collage of her name. I used some simple wood cut outs and hand painted it. They are stuck up with those nifty 3M peel and stick things!

I hope you like it as much as I do, and I welcome all comments Smiley Ellie

I definatly like the idea of hiding them all over, and yes, you must leave one out. he will always be wondering where it is, when it will pop out at him! We did that as a senior prank in high school, someone let chickens loose, and when we were questioned everyone said there were six let loose. But there were really only five...bahaha they spent hours looking for it until they realized it wasn't there. The doll isn't alive though, he doesn't have to find it right away  Grin

although i do have to say i am jealous, when i posted mine that i just did about a month back I got beaten down with people yelling at me for the cord attach method. saying that my child would strangle... people i'll tell ya  Cheesy you can't strangle on something that's inside a coat sleeve!

great job!!!!!

I wished it was a stencil lemmie tell ya! I had just enough fabric for the bag and was SOO scared I was going to screw up the image. Luckily I didn't, the little knit bag was so much less stressful lol!

I am glad you liked it!
It is Freya on the purse, and not to gloat, but she was freehanded with a gold fabric dye marker. I couldn't get the image to transfer properly, so I just trusted my hand/eye coordination ha!
