DIY: Creating Character With Baby Boudoirs 2.0

Our "Up" inspired travel nursery

Little did I know that a year after first writing about stylish baby boudoirs that I’d be expecting my own tiny bundle. The books, blogs and mommy sites are no joke! I kicked into full nesting mode during my third trimester with baby high hormones that amped up my naturally crafty juices to Martha Stewart/MacGyver levels.
As a lifelong globetrotter, I wanted a travel-themed nursery combined with Pixar’s ode to love, travel and adventure, Up. The film’s magical 5 minute sequence documenting the love story between Carl and Ellie, set against a score so moving that my husband and I can barely hear it without major waterworks, was such a huge part of our relationship that we wanted it to be a part of our baby’s nursery.
