My Creative Space - Baby Shoes and ABC's

If you checked out my "My Creative Space" last week (if you missed it you can catch it here) you will remember the sneak peak of the baby shoe framing I was doing for a friend. Well - believe it or not, I actually finished a project and as promised here is the result - fresh from Captain Morgan's room:

In other Creative stuff this week - I made an ABC print for the play room wall. After much searching on Etsy and Pinterest (yes I have a whole board dedicated to ABC prints) - I finally found this great DIY by The Crafting Chicks - and totally copied it (not sure if that means it is not creative!). The best part - the total job (not including the frame which i had already at home) cost under $6. Bargain. And it was the perfect mix of pictures and text and not too cutesy.
In case you were wondering why I hung it so low - it was so it was the right height for my son to be able to see and touch and point to the pictures.
PS - the spray painting of the tin tool kit did not turn out so well- hence no photos of the finished product as promised. I think it had something to do with the fact that I was spray painting in the backyard in the dark!

  2. I love the framed booties! My son (9mths old) has almost outgrown his very first pair of Volleys - they are so cute & they have little scuff marks on them from all his bouncing - framing them would be a great way to display them!
