More nursery progress...

Brooke's nursery has been one of the hardest tasks to complete, not only due to all my medical issues, and Todd working some crazy long hours, but also because I have about 10 times more ideas than wall room! Anyway, for Mothers Day, I wanted nothing more than to get some more work done on the nursery.
Two new collage frames from Michaels. We are having her professional pictures done at 1 wk old, so those will go in the frames as soon as I have them printed. The vinyl word quote also came from Michaels. It's not so light in the room, but for some reason it will not show up in pictures. Anyway, it reads "such a big miracle inside such a little girl." I also got 4 new canvas bins for the bookcase to store toys and blankets in.

And this is a sneak peek of the wall art and how it will be hung. I am having the hardest time finding 6 matching frames, ughh! Every time I got to Hobby Lobby, they'll only have 4 of the same kind. I've now redone this project three times due to frame availability. I FINALLY got 6 matching frames tonight and at 50% off.

Here is a close up of the framed wall art though. I attached two little hooks (by 3M) onto the back so that the ribbon could hang each of them. Then I just tied the ribbon and hung it on a push pin. Works perfectly fine. I'm considering having DH use his heavy duty molly bolts though and just hot glueing a pretty scrapbooking charm to the end of the screw, just for safety reasons. I'd feel horrible if one of these pictures feel on my little girl!

And a sneak peak of what I've been working on tonight:
