People have asked us, "what's the theme of your baby's room going to be?" And my only response could be, "good artwork." Brian and I really like the idea of surrounding our little one with beautiful handmade items- hopefully instilling the value of creativity and working with one's hands in our little one from the start. Heck- we've gotta get him/her trained early so we can put them to work in the studio asap!
A little about each piece: the tree print is by a designer friend of ours, David Stanfield -it was originally from a series of prints that he had in a show at the gallery in our church. The bird and dimensional tiles are by Melissa Cadell. Sandy Snead made the little felted flower collage.
My grandpa made the wooden shelf and dresser. Although he's no longer with us, I'm often comforted when I see these items he carefully crafted. I'd have to say that he and my grandma were some of my first influences (along with my mom and dad) to enjoy working with my hands. They always had something crafty going on when we came over to their house.
The little owl drawing and poem was made by our friend Erin Dennison, and the cool mirror was made by our friend Kathi Graves.
