Since we've returned from holidays this little home of ours has been a construction zone...we squeezed a summer's worth of projects in to one and a half weeks! I am just now digging myself out from beneath the mess!
With the trim in the back entrance complete; a new 'mudroom' - stay tuned for the before and after - and a freshly painted front door checked off our list...I had a little time of my own. I set to work making monogrammed prints for each of my children.
Inspiration struck on a recent treasure-hunting expedition to Goodwill...where I spotted this...ummm...little beauty???
I knew instantly that the frame was perfect for Ava's room ~ the little girl dancing in the mactac meadow...not so much! I began by removing everything from the frame and made my own backing from a cereal box.
I purchased these initials at Micheal's for 75 cents...the black didn't jive with Ava's room so I traced it onto some cream-coloured paper and cut it out.
I covered the cereal box (from above) with some scrap-booking paper. Put it all together...and...
I added the flower from a hat that Little Miss Ava refuses to wear!
For under $10, I created monogrammed prints to match their personalities!
I'm linking to these parties...
