An important part of having a new little someone is making a personal space for that new little someone.
When I was pregnant with Eddie, Cort and I spent hours working on the nursery. We chose a theme (jungle) and color scheme. I picked out and placed items that would be personal and meaningful to our new son.
I was in love with the nursery.
When we found out we were having another boy, part of me was thrilled that I didn’t have to change the nursery.
But as we moved Eddie to his new Big Boy room, I realized I did want to change it in small ways. I wanted it to be Charlie’s room now. Not Eddie’s.
So away went anything with Eddie’s name on it or with his picture in it.
Off the walls came the white letters that I painted, hot glued ribbon too, and had hung on the wall with care.
For some reason, those were the most difficult thing for me to take down and put away. And suddenly it was very important to me…almost irrationally so…that I get new letters for Charlie.
And as much as I loved the big white letters, Charlie’s had to be different. Because he is a different person.
That is when I contacted Jennifer of Jaborandi and Grove.
She happens to be one of my lovely blog sponsors and I try to use my blog sponsors at any opportunity I get so I can share them with you.
Jaborandi and Grove is FULL of super cute letters for the wall and she LOVES to do custom orders.
So we started emailing back and forth about what the nursery looks like, what colors we have, what I was thinking for Charlie’s letters, etc.
People? She is so nice. I mean really, REALLY nice.
She was quick, she was flexible (we have budget issues, so she helped us figure something out that would work within our Charlie budget), and she created something so awesome.

They turned out even better than I had hoped!
The tans and browns match the room perfectly and the letters are a big change from Eddie’s…which I like. Charlie is a new individual. He should have a room that reflects that.
I was incredibly pleased with Jen and her shop, Jaborandi and Grove.
You need letter? You go to Jennifer.
Tell her Sluiter Nation sent you.
Disclosure: I bought the letters for Charlie’s room with my own money and as part of a deal to also write a review in exchange for ad space. While Jaborandi and Grove sponsors Sluiter Nation, my opinions have not been bought. They are my own.
