Land of Nod ain't got nuthin' on me...

One of the things I've wanted to do in the nursery since we found out we were expecting, was have my baby's name up on the wall. I had a cut out from a magazine that I loved and as soon as we knew we were having a girl and picked her name - I was off to the races online looking at name letters. I ran into two very annoying problems. First, anything that I thought was cute enough to buy was going to cost me $20 per letter. I'm not a fan of nicknames and I refused to do just her initials so I moved on because $140 in letters would be stupid even if we weren't broke. Then I started looking at plain letters (no design, no color, BORING) and got depressed. I found some on sale at Craft Warehouse and bought them, even though I had no idea what I was going to do to "girly" them up. Then, a few weeks later, I was perusing the Land of Nod catalog and saw the wall letters they had to offer. The colors weren't right for Addison's room and they were made of cardboard instead of wood but it planted a little seed in my brain. I drug Derek back to the craft store to get some scrap booking paper in our colors, some Mod Podge (the coolest craft product EVER made) and some pink glitter. A few hours, and quite a mess later, we have unique wall letters that match the color scheme of the room. Two of them required minor touch ups as the paper didn't appreciate being wet but I'm not telling what letters they are and unless you show up to inspect them for yourselves, I don't think you'll be able to tell. :)
