I never had a baby mobile set up in the nursery for Samuel or Levi since we never used the crib, but with the hope of using the crib this time, I thought it would be a good idea to have one. I had scanned dozens of pics online of baby mobiles and found tons of cute ones on Ohdeedoh, too many to even link to. My problem was that I didn't want to make the room too theme-y, but I did want to have a woodsy, natural, organic feel to it. With it being my third and last kid, I know that it won't be a nursery for too long, and it will soon be a kid's room. So I didn't want to make it a) too expensive, b) too baby, or c) too time-consuming to create.
I finally just went down to Hobby Lobby and browsed around until something caught my eye. I looked at the Christmas ornaments for a long time and picked out several non-Christmas looking ornaments that would look cool. But then I went down the Thanksgiving aisle and found something that fit the idea that was in my head perfectly. This is what I came up with.
The room is not complete yet, but I'll post some pics when it's all put together. The walls are still a little bare, but I have to work it all out in my head first. An easy transition into kid-room is important to me, so I still have some more brainstorming to do.
