The Nursery

Posted by Stephanie on 9:25 AM

The canvas that will hang in the nursery. I created it using photoshop!

We finally started on our nursery last week.  It's been a family effort.  Each of our children have graciously helped out and pitched in with joy.  I'm so blessed that they love to work together and for each other.  I set a budget of $300 for a total and found everything (dresser, glider, curtains, knobs, electrical covers, pillows, crib bedding) either on eBay or Craigslist.  Even the paint we used was literally used and not new :) Everything is from Pottery Barn. My rug I found on Craigslist from PB is not here yet.  My cousin picked it up for me since she lives in the town I found it in which is 2 hours from here and I sent her a check. We painted our old crib and changing table.  The only thing that is new is the tree decal. It is amazing and looks like it was painted on.  I splurged a bit on that one item :) It was cheaper than having someone do it and quicker than doing it ourselves. It is a blessing to learn to be frugal. My husband has a wonderful income but I am learning to be frugal. It's a process that I am embracing and very thankful for and to also be teaching our children.


I found a lot of baby girl onesies in storage and didn't even remember storing them.  I also found a lot of my old cloth diapers. I plan to use them exclusively this time around and am really looking forward to it. 

Enjoy the photos of what we have done so far...you can tell which ones were taken from my iPhone and the others that are from a digital camera.

Found the stroller/car seat at my favorite thrift shop






I'm 33 weeks and feeling great now that I am over my cold that wouldn't go away! I walk most mornings with the children, drink lots of fresh green smoothies from my Vitamix and am eating much better than with my other pregnancies.  Heartburn isn't too bad but it's starting up now that I am nearing the end.  I have my apple cider vinegar in all my smoothies to help out with that.  Moriyah is VERY active especially at night which doesn't help me to sleep well but I love to feel her move around and so does Hubby and children.  I'm enjoying the pregnancy.  I love everything about life growing inside of me and having this opportunity to teach our children about how awesome our Creator is through the process.

Thank you for checking in on us :)  Love to all!

Scripture and Quotes

"Children are a heritage of YHWH; the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. " Psalm 127:3-4

The Scriptures teach that debt is a curse and children are blessings; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.
