This simple project by Cornflower Blue (her blog is very pretty!) caught my eye on Pinterest the other day and I couldn't stop thinking about it until I picked up some bright green card, a Sharpie and a ruler.
This is actually my second of three attempts. The first died when I scambled to get a fussy Emmett out of his highchair and put a wet paper towel on it without noticing until I came back a couple of hours later. The second, this one, I thought I didn't like and the third died when I tried to add doodles. I do not like my doodles (tomorrow is National Doodle Day, by the way). They look pretty in my brain but on paper they aren't something I'd like to look at every time I open the fridge. So I went back to the second incarnation, added words and some lines and hung it up. Ta da. That's what my handwriting looks like.
We just started a big cleaning/organizing project in the conservatory which included making a little space for Emmett with a drawing table and a basket of toys. My hope is that this will give me a bit of time to make a few things myself. I was able to make most of this with him scribbling away beside me which was an awesome feeling. I'm so excited about the crafts we'll make together as he gets older.
Speaking of crafts, I've found a couple of crafting magazines that I have minor crushes on but that's a post for another day!
