y’all know i love an adorable nursery. add to that that the nursery is for a mama and daddy’s first little one, and they happen to be fans of the “monsters, inc.” series (which i was only just introduced to this past year by little mr. re-nest #1), and we had an awesome combo for some adorable nursery decor.
a great friend of mine is the sister to the mama-to-be, and she asked me to make one of my baby mobiles for her nephew-to-be’s nursery. flattered? um, yes. totally excited to be a part of a new one’s room? double yes.

we started with the baby’s bedding. the mama and daddy had decided to go with cocalo’s peek-a-boo monsters set, which is adorable! i then went to work to find different styles of monsters we could use for the mobile. there are tons of options out there for monsters, but we had to make sure these little guys were cute and cuddly…and i was trying to give a little nod to the “mike” and “sully” characters from the movies. another piece of the design? i deliberately was trying to not be too matchy-matchy when it came to how the monsters looked compared to the monsters on the bedding. i wanted colors to of course follow, but i like when there’s variation on how a theme looks in a room. 🙂
i so love the way this turned out…cute little monsters to add a little extra something to this sweet little boy’s nursery! and, what was even better, i was able to meet the adorable mama-to-be on easter and she was so excited about the mobile! i so love being able to make something special to make a nursery truly unique!
