It's taken me forever to share this with you, but this has been a crazy week! And right now I only have about 15 minutes before I have to run out the door again....but I wanted to share something new for the nursery. You'll remember that I said that there was an empty space on the little white shelves on top of Baby A's dresser that was going to get filled - well, it's finally done:
Becky Higgins blog long before Baby A came along and wished I had thought to do it for K. But at least I can do it for Baby A, right?!?
This is not rocket science folks, I just went to Michael's with a trusty coupon and got the acrylic paint and canvases. These are 6"x6" canvases in a pack of 4, and what I especially love about them is that they are 1 inch thick so they look nice and chunky.
Then I corralled the baby and painted her hand with the white paint and pressed, hoping for the best, because she was not a big fan of my crafty project! I figured if the handprint didn't look great, I could just paint over with the pink and try again, but luckily I was pleased with the first try. Then I had ordered the Sharpie Poster Paint Pen in white (fine point) from Amazon, and I had been waiting for that to arrive to write the year in the lower right corner. I debated about writing the year or her age, but decided on the year in the end. I am very happy with how it turned out!
The other 3 canvases are ready to go in her closet for the next 3 years! I'm planning on alternating between the darker and lighter pink each year. And I'll probably hang them on the wall eventually as she gets older. I still have a couple more projects for the nursery in the works, but at least I can check this off my list!
