I love everything she makes.
Her stuff is adorable.
Grandparent's day was Sunday, and when I saw her friend board, I knew it would be perfect for grandparents! Gifts from the heart (especially handmade ones) are, in my mind, the best!
I called my sister and asked her to ask her girls what they think of when they think of my parents.
This one was for my parents:
This one was for my in-laws.
I then started laying out words in SCAL that describe them, starting with Grandparents, Nana, and Deedaw (or Papa and Cici). I added in grandkids names, and started resizing stuff and moving it around until I found a layout I liked.
Drill holes in the top corners, run your wire through, and curl it for the hanger.
I cut 4 flowers out of cardstock...2 large, 1 medium, and 1 small for each board. I used my fingers to curl the edges up a bit, and glued the layers together.
Then I stuck a blob of glue (clear-drying glue) in the center and poured small beads on it.
I gently pressed the beads into the glue, and glued the flower onto the board.
My parents and in-laws really enjoyed reading the words that we came up with to describe them!
Today I am thankful that I grew up in the same town as all 4 of my grandparents, and 2 of my great grandparents. Family is so precious to me!
P.S. Our baby boy is doing wonderfully! Thank you to each of you for the kind words, thoughts, and prayers! It means so much to us!
