Happy Mother's Day

I babysit my two nephews, Robert who is 5 years old and Michael who is 2 years old, every Saturday morning. Today Grandpa, Aunt Betsy, and two of my girls helped me make a Mother's Day gift from the boys for their mom, my sister-in-law... I printed the inside frame, message and the boys' names and the year in Microsoft Word and printed them on white cardstock. I then painted the boys' hands with black acrylic craft paint - Robert said he thought it tickled and Michael threw a little fit (I should have done it when he took his morning nap). All in all, I thought they turned out really cute, but the photography of the finished product leaves something to be desired (sorry...)

Hello Anna, Thank you so much for the lovely message you left on my blog & for your Belle & Boo purchase. I have just been looking at your beautiful dolls and those socks you knitted are so cute, I can't knit to save my life!

These are beautifully framed and have a wonderful style..not your typical bright primary colored tempera painted hands. I'd definitely hang those! And your socks are quite cute..I couldn't do that to save my life:)
