Arts & Crafts with Baby C

Armed with one round of experience in theĀ Arts and Crafts TimeĀ we struck out again. It’s a time sensitive project that will, like a lot of our end results, be treasured for years. This though is not a building project but rather an arts and crafts creation.

One never ends up with a happy baby with their feet squished in plaster but it’s worth a few minutes worth of tears!

Just over 2 years since we did her footprints. She seemed to be in a bit of disbelief that these were her little feet. Now they are these long slender feet that her momma inherited from her gramma.

The finished product makes my heart fill with joy whenever I glance upon it. So blessed and so grateful and very pleased that their parents were ok with me to share the photos.
