But I have been meaning to blog about my last couple of projects. Since I already packed up the main computer with the pictures on it, iphone pics will have to do.
Frames for my kids-
1. I love the idea of silhouettes. I've been wanting to do them for a while.
2. At this last LDS General Conference, our prophet, President Monson, reminded us to have a picture of the temple in each of our children's rooms.
3. I love subway art.
So I decided to combine them all into one! I saw someone had done temple silhouettes on etsy and thought - I could do that! I really liked how these turned out and I think it's fun that each of my kids can have the temple of where they were born. I can also update their silhouettes as they grow.
Here is a tutorial for silhouettes. I made all of these using Photoshop Elements and printed them on canvas textured scrapbook paper. The frames are from IKEA.
Does anyone else think toddler clothes have become WAY over priced? I saw this dress at Shabby Apple, thought it was darling, but $42?! Sorry, Kate (my cute sister-in-law works there)
Anyway, I thought, I could make something like that. I bought a $5 target t-shirt, cut off the bottom, used that to embellish it with a ruffled rose, added gathered fabric I already had as the skirt and stuck on a ribbon. It was a little tricky working with the stretchy t shirt, but I'm pretty happy with it and Madeline loves it. $8 isn't bad either. Here is a tutorial of one similar. I only sewed the ribbon to the front so I could tie it in the back. You could also do the same idea with a onesie.
Well, have a great week everybody. If I survive packing, moving and the 30 hours of driving with my kids, I'll be blogging from IOWA very soon!
