I did these plates too. I found a tutorial online and it cost me about $5.00 total. If you look too closeup you'll see that I need to invest in an exacto knife. But I think they turned out. This mirror in our front foyer was aching for something.
I think it's my photography skills, not the wall that's lopsided. That's a sketch of Deaglan, done by Shaune's sister Katie. Deaglan was about seven months at the time. I stole one of his hotwheels and hotgluegunned (that's right, I made that word up) it to a frame. I also took the last page of the torn copy of Guess How Much I Love You (we have a not torn copy too) and framed it. It says Then he layed down close by and whispered with a smile "I love you right up to the moon - and back." We've read this book so often that Deaglan can almost recite it.
I'm not above printing out a silhouette and slapping a frame around it either. On the left is a picture of Shaune and me at a friend's wedding in 1998. I won't mention who - they're no longer together. On the right is a self portrait we took on vacation in Miller Lake when I was newly pregnant with Deaglan.
I guess you can tell that I have a bit of a love for birds lately. The bird lady. And branches and pinecones. I found this flour jar at Pier1 for $3.00.
And these for $1.95 each. I got six but I should have grabbed all they had. I just LOVE them.
Maternity leave gives you a lot of time to look at your walls. And feel bored with what's up there. So I've been making changes. It helps to have an easy going husband whose only rule is to stay away from remodelling his kitchen. No problem. I try to stay out of there anyway.
Sorry about the Christmas picture. But I forgot about this one and my heart skipped a beat when I was looking through our picture file and stumbled on it. I just love this guy. Can you even stand how cute he is in that vest?
