I made all of her presents this year. Which is more about having more confidence than time. I really love making gifts for people (I'll always find time!), but have never had the confidence to just give them things I've made.
The homemade thing was always an "extra" so that if they thought it was rubbish they still had a "proper" gift too. But because of people getting gifts being so sweet, and of course people on this blog, my confidence has grown a little. And I feel okay about giving things I've made.
Especially to my mum! ;)
This frame was last minute. Izzy wanted to make something for her grandma. I already had everything I needed and it took less than 10 minutes!
I just stamped the words and inked the kids thumbs and it was done. Sweet.
Two tips; I would stamp the words second or at least let them dry before you do your kids fingerprints. (our letters got smudged!)
Also I stamped the kids' fingerprints on a scrap of paper a couple of times first so that the lines on their print stood out more.
Here it is on top of my mum's piano. Along with a sneak peak of one of her other gifts...
Anyone else done some fingerprint art? I'm kinda loving it! I want one too :)
