Holy COW! (literally). The nursery mural is finished!

My wonderfully generous, extremely talented friend, Alexandra, worked all weekend long (seriously, she came home with me from work on Friday, worked until 1 am, stayed the night, started again Saturday morning at 9:30, worked non-stop until 1 am, stayed the night again, up and working 9:30 Sunday and went until it was done at 4:30) and I honestly have to say she did such a phenominal job that I was in tears when she was finished(damn pregnancy hormones).

The finished product is just amazing. It is everything I wanted and more than I could have imagined. When I said I wanted a mural with animals and a white picket fence for the nursery I couldn't have imagined I would end up with something so beautiful! I can't say enough wonderful things about it.

There is 90-some odd pictures but it shows the process from beginning to end for each little creature. Put it on super-speedy if you don't have time for all those pictures!

She is freaking amazing. What the hell is she doing working as a contract administrator? I have no idea.

WOW. She did a GREAT job!!! You're right...she's in the wrong job!! You never realize the work that goes into something like that until you see in-progress pictures...:)
