A tale of two showers.

I have had the honor of serving on the inreach committee for my Sunday School class this year. Mostly, this means that I organize showers for the ladies in our class that are expecting (three were expecting this year, each of them due a month apart), as well as organizing meals for families after a new child has been born, surgeries, etc. I have loved every minute of this ministry and hope that these families have been, and will be, touched by the genorosity of those in our Sunday school class by their giving of gifts, their time, their love and their cooking! Here are a few pictures from the most recent shower we hosted for Emily and her soon to be baby boy, Jackson.

Great food!

So pleased with the way these turned out!
Emily and her beautiful mother. Can you believe she's due in a few weeks?!

Opening gifts

In preparation for the shower, I decided it was finally time to get around to making the shower curtain for the bathroom that Brandon and I have recently re-decorated. We went for a much more contemporary style for this room that is in the rest of our home. We wanted to have more of a masculine feel since this is, primarily, Isaac's bathroom. I searched high and low for a pre-fab curtain, but to no avail. Then began my quest for a geometric patterned fabric in a yellow-on-gray color scheme. It doesn't exist. So... we improvised! While the shower curtain is certainly not as perfect as it would be if my Mom had made it, I'm pretty happy with it. This was my first solo sewing endeavor, so I'm proud that it was, for the most part, a success! Here are some before and after shots of Isaac's "new" bathroom. Although, it's weird... he hasn't said anything about it yet. :)

Before the "remodel"

After many hours of painting and stenciling...

So hard to get a good shot of this....

The curtain and panels hang from the celing
