I have a long wall in my home's hallway that connects my three kids' bedroom that is in desperate need of some artwork. To make the cream, plain, boring wall pop, I want to create a gallery wall with pictures of our family, some of the kids' artwork and other custom artwork from Trendy Peas. To help me tackle this little project, I started a new Pinterest board that is all about gallery walls. This board has great ideas for unique ways to display photography, artwork, kids' drawings, frames and mirrors. I love the idea of painting the wall with chalk paint and the use of wires to hang the artwork from it. To see all the ideas, visit my Pinterest board here and start following us today.

What a ride. A joyful and nervous feel like roller coaster ride. It all started on July 27th. We had a plan, a planned c-section. From having two previous c-section surgeries I thought this one would be very easy. After all three times is a charm, right? I waved good-bye to my mom, dad, and sisters as I entered the operating room. We were all so excited to find out the baby's sex. The big day had finally come. As the clock hit 1:30 in the afternoon, the doctor shouted "It's a Boy", and the entire room celebrated the birth of baby Victor. I looked at my husband and smiled with joy even though I was feeling very, very sick from the anesthesia. I got to see Victor really quick, just a little glance. Shortly after that, he was handed to the nurse in the operating room. Why didn't him cry and scream like Bela and Marcus did? In a split second, the joy melted away and I had tears rolling down my face. Being strapped down, I could not even wipe them off. I kept squishing Alex's hand to see what was going on. All I wanted to hear was "Don't worry, he is doing just fine". But that moment lingered for about 20 minutes. At times, I couldn't breathe and I felt really dizzy. I kept saying in my head, cry Victor, cry. The pediatrician and the nurse took Victor to the nursery room. Alex followed them and I stayed behind. Later in the evening, we found out that he was having problems breathing because one of his tiny little lungs had collapsed. I couldn't really grasp what was happening. I cried, I prayed and I kept thinking about the day that I would leave the hospital with my baby. Sure enough, that day came, five days after he was born. Those five days felt like five weeks. Such a scary time. Luckily, a time spent with my supportive family and good friends. My little miracle came home with us and he is doing great! Bela and Marcus adore their baby brother. I am thrilled to show you my little blessing. Please meet Victor Araujo Cancado. And so, let the journey go on...

Here is a sweet little spot featuring some of Trendy Peas' art. A beautiful reading nook, with pillows in navy blue, green, and white. The same fabric from the pillows is used on the bed's comforter creating a clean and uniform look. I love the curtain in the chevron pattern and the book selves underneath the window. We love to see our ABC and Count to 20 canvasses in this beautiful space. Thank you so much Jennifer Azzarelli, for sharing with us pictures of your room. You sure got Trendy!

Check out these cute little birds and owls hanging out along side this crib. I wondered what they are chatting about. Andy Barnes was kind enough to share with us these two lovely photos of his baby's nursery. I love how the wall decal is showing against this bright and colorful pink bubble gum wall. Hum, so yummy! Above the birds and owls decal from Trendy Peas, Andy and his wife added a beautiful quote surrounded by white clouds. I really like how it turned out. Thank you so much Andy for sharing your space with us. You sure got Trendy!
