My Baby's Hand

Okay--here's a Jennifer original.  (I know, kind of amazing!)  This is a little project I did a few years back with my older two kids, and now it's Reese's turn.
At 6 months, I have traced my child's hand and made a little stitchery out of it.  I combined it with a photo of them at 6 months.  It is fun to have a little comparison of all my kids at 6 months!

For the frames, I took the $1 wooden frames you can buy from Michael's.  I think you can buy them from other craft stores, but Michael's is the cheapest I have found.  
I simply painted the sides white...
Cut scrapbook paper to cover the frame (just trace around the frame onto the paper)...
 Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the frame to glue the paper to the frame.  I also applied a layer of Mod Podge over the paper to seal it.
Pretty easy, right?  Love it!

Super hero Capes = Super Hero Mom

Well, between a 2 week Spring Break, Easter, my Birthday (last year of 20's!!) I have been somewhat absent.  It's good to be back into a regular routine--yes, good to be back to the regular grind of life.  After seeing these great Super Hero Capes on Pinterest, I thought they'd make a great Easter Basket prize.  Well...I didn't quite get them done--until TODAY.  But actually, I decided it works out better this way because now I get all the credit (therefore becoming a Super Hero to my kids) instead of the Easter Bunny!
 My princess Halle, and my Superman Cole
My kids LOVE them.  They ran around the house today Saving the World and protecting me from "the bad guys."  I'm not sure what I would do without them.
