***BIRTHDAY BASH-Giraffes and Stuff Review and GIVEAWAY***

I have always enjoyed decorating a nursery. When Monkey was born I wasn't able to decorate his room until he was probably 4 or 5 months old because we were in the middle of completely re-sheet rocking and redoing his room. So with this baby I am enjoying getting to actually decorate and get everything ready BEFORE the baby is born. There are so many adorable things out there that you can make the room so adorable with and give it such character.  While looking for decor for my boys room I found a shop on ETSY that has the most adorable nursery decor.......Giraffes and Stuff.
 At  Giraffes and Stuff you can find growth charts, matching canvas prints, wall decals, and prints all in coordinating patterns to create your perfect nursery. I absolutely love her variety of items and prints and the quality of her workmanship. All of her items are high quality prints and can be customized to your specific child. You can get your child's name, date of birth, or anything else printed on them to match their room or personality.
Giraffes and Stuff was conceptualized through the great internet project www.onemilliongiraffes.com . Yulia submitted over 25 giraffes for that project and she has loved designing animal creations ever since. Yulia’s artwork is creative, fun and modern. She works with professional printers to ensure that her products look amazing. The Giraffes and Stuff product line includes growth charts, wall art and accessories. Yulia has received high praise from customers all over North America through her website www.giraffesandstuff.com and her Etsy shop www.giraffesandstuff.etsy.com and she is continuously expanding her product ideas.

I absolutely LOVE this Air Adventures Canvas Art!  My boys room is decorated with planes, trains, and cars so i love the simple vintage look of this picture. Even though it doesn't match the theme of the room exactly, you can easily make it go along with your other decor and greatly add to the room.
Giraffes and Stuff sent us the Vintage Bicycle growth chart for review. We absolutely love it! It is a high quality print that is printed on canvas. Each corner has grommets for pinning it to the wall.  They are solidly attached in each corner and hold it tightly to the wall.  The numbers on it start at 24 inches at the bottom and go all the way to 60 inches, and there is a place to add a name and date on the side to keep track of everything.The printing on the canvas is very good quality so that it will stand up to years of abuse from kiddos.....we did unexpectedly fine out that you can get crayon off of it if your little Monkey is coloring at the table right next to it and decides to move to the wall! I just used a magic eraser and most of it came off. You just have to scrub VERY lightly since the magic erasers are made to take EVERYTHING off.

Monkey just loves walking up to where it hangs on the wall and talking about all of the "Cycles" that are on it. He will point to every one of them and tell me all about them.
