For the so far still bare nursery walls: hodgepodge alphabet.
I stole the idea from a nursery tour on apartment therapy's nursery site and then got to work.
The letters came from different craft stores (the larger the store, the better the selection of different font types, materials, and sizes). Some of them are simply painted (like the P), others are mod-podged with papers (tissue paper works best, but I also used pretty sturdy scrapbooking paper). A few are painted on little canvases, others are covered in buttons (because we all know I love buttons). I covered some with fabric, others with paper (though watch out - I glued the letter to the paper and then cut around it with the exacto; you have to choose the right letters for that - nothing with tons of tiny corners!), but my favorite is the V - it's decoupaged with little pieces of fabric.
After I had collected my letters, it took me about two days to decorate all of them. It was a great distraction from the "when will I finally go into labor" thoughts I kept having. :)
