Nursery Paintings, Baby Sprinkle, and Birthday Surprise!

I am SO pooped right now! I woke up at 5am this morning to finish two little nursery paintings for a baby shower (actually a “sprinkle”) for two of my friends. When I got home from the shower at noon, my husband and a bunch of friends surprised me with a birthday party! I had the best day hanging out in the pool with our kids, drinking margaritas and grilling out!

The paintings I finished are little miniatures of the “sugar and spice” paintings that I typically do.

I ended up using the little crinkle tag toys as little toppers for the gift wrapping.

I can’t wait to hit my pillow now! Have a great night! Here we are at my birthday today after I blew out 32 candles!
