NICU sign #1 August 18, 2012

Filed under: NICU name signs — mjalbright @ 2:37 am

Since I’m on call tonight and can’t sleep until the safe time of 0400, I decided to start making the NICU isolette name signs I mentioned earlier this week.

I used mostly retired Stampin’ Up! items/papers and some current.  I can’t even tell you what I used.  I didn’t keep track of colors at all.  I can tell you that I watercolored on Shimmery White.   I also whipped out my handy iPhone for the pic (at this hour, there was no way I was gonna use the “good camera” and photo cube/prop.

The Designer Paper and Vanilla cardstock continues to the right where there is room for a babies name and all other vital information. This is going to look so nice on an isolette…and I’m sure the parents will appreciate it as well.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!

    I am so thankful that there are special people like you in this world to take care of those precious little babies. My daughter is a nurse in CVICU and she loves taking care of her babies. I will have to see if I can make special things like this to send to the hospital. I am so glad that you are back and sharing your beautiful artwork with us!!!!!

    Good morning Mary Jo. I have not seen anything for quite a while posted on your blog. Have you created anymore items for the babies at the hospital? I just love seeing your creations. Hope you are doing well and look so forward to your next post.

    Hi Mary Jo. Are you still having access to your blog comments? Was just wondering what you have been up to over the Christmas holidays and beyond. I hope all the little ones at the hospital are doing well. I’m sure the parents love what you create for them. It would be nice to hear from you.
