My Purse was a MESS!

I LoVe purses and bags so much, but in the past few weeks, months, years, they are just a constant mess because I just throw stuff in and never look back. My purse often becomes a place for the kids, myself, as well as an office. Since I know in a matter of weeks I will be switching from baby bags to purses I decided to make a purse organizer. I don't know how it will work out, honestly but I hope it will make a quick transition from one bag to the next to simplify life.

It is a lot like making a crayon roll with bigger pockets. I saw a great tutorial here:

My Mom's Many Talents

My Mom is so very talented. Here is a picture of Beck's nursery five years ago. My Mom painted some of the print from the fabric on the wall. It was darling! I was so sad to leave that room when we moved a couple years ago. Well, last week she came and painted in this baby's nursery. I told her I wanted a soft cherry blossom tree and here is what she did:
I could not be any happier. I think it is just perfect and fairytale-ish. It was just what that one wall needed.

While I am at it I thought I would show you the chandelier kit we did. (I don't think I have shown it yet.) I REALLY wanted a chandelier for baby girl's room, but Ben reminded me of practicality. We are in south Texas in an upstairs bedroom and a fan is just a must! So, he found this light kit that goes on a fan and I love it! It is just the right amount of sweetness.

I cannot wait to show the whole nursery, but she has her name in it and I am not ready for the big reveal just yet. Plus, we have a shelf and a few other things that need hanging. 6 weeks from today she will be here!!!
