4G Network {Coralee's Birth Announcement}

No comments:
 Our family and friends waited with anticipation for the arrival of baby Evans #3. We kept the gender a surprise and so, on new years day, when Coralee Ann joined our family many giggled at the thought of our future with three girls in tow. Comments like: "Poor Steven. He's so outnumbered." "No shortage of hormones in that household." "How does it feel to be floating in a sea of estrogen?" During one such conversation, my brother-n-law, Kevin, coined the phrase "The Evans Family 4G Network." (4G aka Four Girl). I thought it would make a humorous and fun birth announcement design concept. And, as often happens, I couldn't decided which design I liked best! Here are the final two designs. I added the tag line "Life in High Speed." We are truly in for a ride!

Pink, Please

No comments:
The girl's room is finished! What fun its been to plan this PINK girly bedroom for my babies. To put the excitement into perspective for you, when I was pregnant with Marin, my four and a half year old, the wall behind her bed was studs and insulation. Since then, we've rewired (the entire house), hung sheetrock. Installed a ceiling fan, painted the walls. Stripped and painted the trim. Had the floors refinished built closet shelving, bought furniture, hung curtain rods and curtains, bought bedding on sale...well, you get the picture. It's been a LONG TIME COMING. I've added sources for most of the items in the room at the end of this post (if you're curious).
The last two photo show my favorite items in the room. Spinning duck music box and hot air balloons plus the walking hedgehog toy I bought while pregnant with Marin. My shadow box of vintage letter toys and the antique mirror hanging on an old door knob that was salvaged from an exterior door of our house.

Don't let these dreamy photos fool you. It's a kids room and at some points it looks like this:
