How I spent my Hours in Houston

Well, not all of my hours, but it was one of the projects that I went to Houston to work on.
My sister in law does not want to find out the sex of her baby. I don't blame her one bit. I think there is something magical and sweet about not knowing, call me old fashioned, but I like it.
Anyways, one of the hard parts about not finding out your babies sex is that it makes decorating the nursery "tricky tricky tricky" (if someone can tell me the movie that this line comes from I'll seriously be impressed!! I myself had to google the words because, although the line popped into my head, I could not figure out what movie it came from!!).
Jessie (my sister in law) came up with a cute tree theme. She found girl and boy bedding to match. All she needed was one willing and able sister in law to help bring her creation to life!

We started by painting the tree onto the wall. At first I tried to draw the tree in pencil, then I decided it would actually just be easier if I free styled it.

We then cut different shades of green wallpaper, into the shape of leaves. We painted the backs of each leaf with wallpaper glue and stuck them onto the tree.

This process took fooorevver.

I cut strips of wall paper to make the grass and applied it the same way we did the leaves. Again, this took forevveeer.
I had to add my own little touch...can you see it?
A lady bug!!
I'm sorry I did not get a final picture of the tree. I'm going to get Jessie to send me one and I'll post it here! I was thrilled to get the chance to help decorate the babies nursery. I can't wait to meet the little bundle of joy.
