Feeling May-ish

This is my Spring Fever May Inspiration Wall.

It's so much easier to enjoy this time of year not being in my second trimester. I feel for all of my pregnant friends right now. It's such a beautiful job but it can make a mama tired. I'm noticing all of the colors, sounds, and smells that only irritated me last year and it's reminding me of years past.

Thanks for all of the kind words about Ruby's finished painting! I love walking in their room and seeing it on the wall and knowing I finally got it right. I hope your Wednesday is charming. Someone remind me to take the trash out before noon.

xoxo,
Rachel

I love your clipboard inspiration wall - great idea and so easy to change up! If you're like me, I get inspired everyday so I'd be swapping these out constantly!! ; )

I love the clip boards. They make it look so much more organized, than just cluttered or highschool-ish. I think I may have to use this idea for my Fall clothing line inspiration. you are fantastic!
thanks for the inspiration.

I think I'm going to do clipboards to display Ella's artwork...I may paint them different colors too :)

PS LOVE your finished painting too!!

I love those clipboards! So cute! I have a question... do you go to Christ church? I think I saw someone that looked like you there (from your pics) and I am going to be a member there starting next week and want to say hi if it was you! (sorry if I am just way confused and it wasn't!!) -Katie

i remembered elsie's wrapping paper for you, so i thought you'd enjoy it. :)

RachelDenbow said...

the whyte's,


HILARIOUS! Now I want to watch one of the movies.

SmileyEyes,

Why yes! I do! Are you the dark headed girl in most of your group photos? I checked your blog for your photo but I wasn't sure which was you!
See you on Sunday!

Kristen said...

Cute idea!

Kite Tails said...

I loved this idea! I ran to Staples, purchased 12 clipboards and decorated them with all kinds of inspiring imagery. :-)
We're renting short term right now so I put the clipboards up with removable 3M hooks. It was an easy way to decorate without putting all the holes in the wall.
Thank you for always inspiring!

Michelle said...

Oh, yummy. :) I'm so in May-mode right now - did my first bout of Spring shopping today! Hello, yellow cardigans and Spring colors. :)
