I am old enough that people I know are doing something cray:
They are having babies.
They are getting married and just popping out kids.
I still feel like a kid more often than not, so I can't even imagine having one of my own. But, I am still very excited for all the people in my life who are ready to be parents.
Here's to ya, friends.
Particularly, my friend Katie just had a baby 2 weeks ago.
In February, we had her shower.
It was adorable.
Because I did the decorations.
One of my favorite things I made for the shower was a piece of art for Zoe's (baby) room.
Super easy and very cute:
Here's what ya need:
8 x 8 or 10 x 10 canvas
Hot Glue Gun
Here's what ya do:
(Try to keep up, its complicated)
Paint the canvas.
I painted the whole face of the canvas green and did a trim on the sides in pink.
Let it dry.
Draw your letter in pencil.
I happened to be using big "Z"s as part of my centerpieces, so I just traced one of those. The sell the letters at Jo-Ann's.
Bonus: If you buy the $2 letter, paint it too. Very cute on a shelf.
Lay out buttons.
Glue ribbon on the back of the top of the frame for hanging.
Bonus: This doubled as baby shower decor and a gift. I love things that know how to multitask.
