I'm sort of embarrassed to post about this, but here goes anyway. I love reading this blog called Apartment Therapy and I check their nursery page almost everyday because they always feature cool toys and parenting advice and decorating, etc. Anyway, they are having a competition for nursery colors and you send in 3 pictures of your nursery and they pick 15 finalists to feature on the blog. After readers vote, the top three will be featured again with more photos.
I was experimenting with fairy doors the other day, trying out what a wall with a bunch of them would look like and since I was taking pictures of Creed's room I decided to enter the contest. The thing is, after I turned in my entry I really looked at the pictures, and they were NOT good. The photos were bad, and the doors looked weird on the wall so I took them down and figured I wouldn't be a finalist, but that's was ok and now I have plenty of time to figure out what to put on the wall above Creed's bed (and no one would ever see how bad it was).
Then yesterday Creed's room was featured!!! I was totally surprised and a little embarrassed because it looks pretty shabby. Readers vote and so far, the vote is pretty evenly split between 1. It's inspiring, 2. It's in the running, and 3. Almost, but not quite, which sort of surprises me because I look at the pictures and think, "Almost, but not quite" myself! Anyway, if you have a chance you can head over there and boost my confidence and vote (just scroll down until you see Creed's room). I just wish the rules would have allowed me to change the photos, but oh well!
