Three years ago, I ordered silhouettes of my two-year-old as holiday presents for his grandparents. At that time, the two year old depicted above was just a small bump in my belly. This year, I made silhouettes of our youngest to complement the earlier version of his older brother. It was remarkably simple. This project illustrates how the time/money balance has shifted in my life. For the price of ordering one silhouette, I had collected all the supplies (including the simple frames on super sale). Then it just took a few quiet moments at my desk with a sharp x-acto knife, some tracing paper, and a steady hand. You can find detailed instructions over here at Design Sponge. Further tips from Inchmark Journal were also helpful.
2010 has been a busy year of caring for my family and building our sense of home. There are changes and challenges in store for us in the New Year. I'm ready and waiting.
Thank you for visiting this space and sharing the creative journey with me over the past year.
