Crafts

These are a couple projects I have been working on... We always measured ourselves in the door way at my Grandma's house and one at my Mom's too. When my grandparents passed the house was sold and there was no way to keep those memories marked on the doorway. My Parents house will be the same. I wanted something we could write on and watch our children grow and still take with us since we are renting, so here it is.

You can't really tell but there is a pink hand print with Keilei's birth info on it. I'm going to put a little hand print on it for each child we have with there birth info in different colors.
Next I wanted a big magnet board to but under the letters I made for Keilei. I went with my Dad to Lowe's and picked out some molding, which I wish I would have gotten some just a little bit bigger, we took it home and he cut it and glued it together and then I bought the sheet metal we put that on the back. Then a little embellishment and wha-la. A cheap magnet board just like I wanted. I think it looks good with the Keilei letters too.

There are a couple more things I am working on but I can't post them yet since they are Christmas presents. So there is more to come...

Ok your crafts oh so cute. I wish I would have thought of the measuring stick when Tyler was a baby. I love the magnet board. You are so crafty. And Keilei looks adorable in her dress and shoes. Don't worry it is a fight to do Kate's hair and within a couple of hours she has pulled it out. Stinker!
