baby wall art


 it's so often true...there are some images you just don't want tucked away in an album. such is the case with this sweet face a few days after he was born. everytime i would be in the nursery rocking and nursing him these last 6 weeks, i would think of this empty shadow box i had, and inspire myself as to what i would do with it.
and i knew i just wanted to stare at him more...
so i took fabric swatches left over from decorating his room...
and stitched them down quilt style on a piece of cardstock...
printed up a 2 day old photo of him in classic black and white,
including one of those stinkin' sweet feet!
left a border around them...
added a tag with sweet white velvet words...
and loved it.
you will be seeing just how simple my documenting his story can get.
i's not like i have alot of time::
taking care of him round the clock
homeschooling 3 vivacious girlies
helping a high school male adolescent find his way
taking care of a husband who works way too much
not to mention everything that happens outside these four walls. the simplicity flow.
my in-laws are in-house this week too...but i am hoping not to be too absent from this here blog.

argh! so sweet.
