Over the next few weeks you will see Sami, Hilary, and myself all posting on little things here and there that we are doing with our babies’ nurseries. So if you’re looking for ideas – check back!
Today I am sharing a very small part of Baby E’s room – the printables! I unfortunately didn’t get to set up a nursery for our daughter because we moved from a decently sized 3 bedroom to a very small two bedroom. Our spare bedroom has become our main storage area/guest bedroom/office. This means that Baby E had to camp out in our room. Now, should a Baby B #2 arrive in the few years we live here, they’ll have to share the front bedroom, we’ll have to make due, and guests will have to sleep on the couch or on an air mattress. Truthfully, she is a very sound sleeper like her father and it hasn’t been an issue … yet. My project this weekend is Baby E’s side of the room, and I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures so I can share it with you next week sometime.
In the meantime, today I worked on printables to hang in some cute frames (from Hobby Lobby) beside her crib. I’m sure you’ve seen tons of cute printables all over Pinterest. And I love them! What I find out, in most cases, is that these aren’t “free printables” but instead are links to purchase them. Quite frankly – they’re expensive! So I set out to make some of my own.
These were quite simple to make! You just go into Word (or equivalent) and type up what you want. When you save it’s important to save it as a PDF (Adobe – it is a free download and you should already have it on your computer!) and click the option that allows you to save it in high quality – good enough for viewing AND printing. If you were to just print it off of Word I worry that it wouldn’t be as crisp.
But maybe you don’t want to go to all the trouble? Well, because I’m in the giving mood – here you go! (I do NOT have “be silly” in PDF form yet. Figuring it out because I didn’t use Word to create that one!)
Have fun and get creative! Check back next week to see what Baby E’s side of the room looks like!
