Critter’s Nursery Prints

To update you all on the status of Critter’s nursery, unless we plan on having it sleep in a dresser drawer, it is not even close to done (or really even started).

Anyhow, I did have the presence of mind in August to reach out to Sara to see if she could design some custom constellation prints for us.  Sara is a friend we inherited through a number of other friends and she is a gifted illustrator/designer.  After stalking her instagram for ages, I knew that her art was what I wanted in Critter’s nursery.

Why did we pick constellations for Critter’s headquarters?  Because we both love the stars.  They never change.  Our ketubah is set on a poured ink star chart from the day that we were married.  My tallis bag is needlepointed with the star chart from the day that I converted.  In our house, the stars are very literally, everywhere.

We decided on four constellations for critter’s room.  In terms of why we selected them, we chose Ursa Major, Cygnus, Draco, and Orion because they were not horoscope signs and I thought that they would be interesting to a tiny tot as they grow older.

Really, we could not be more pleased with the way that these turned out.

Of course, if you’re looking for some custom prints of your own, check out Sara’s other work!
