On Monday Michael took Ellie hiking with a few friends and I found myself with a whole day at home, alone. It was a perfect day to work on the girls' room: finishing the wall decor, rearranging, and organizing.
I wanted alphabet letters in the room and got an idea on Pinterest to have ladies at my baby shower help decorate individual letters. 26 wood letters would be expensive so I used foam board, hand drew letter stencils of different fonts (a bigger perfectionist may have printed letters off the computer), then traced them and cut them with an exacto knife. Below is the result of several friends pitching in to help decorate. I wanted all the letters to look different and I love the end result. The picture doesn't do each letter justice, but here's a glimpse:
