Painted Canvases for Baby Shower
Back in February, the girls of Unboundary (the company where I've worked for 16 years) gave Molly a baby shower. We painted baby blocks using an alphabet theme. Here is the link to how they turned out. What a blast. Working with a creative group of women makes for some wonderfully crafty showers (no shower games with this crew; we got art to make!).
And with Amanda's shower to follow in September (see link here), the alphabet block theme continued but took on a different form. Instead of blocks, we painted small canvases. Amanda can use them to decorate the nursery, either framing them in some sort of temporary framing or hanging them with clothespins (gave her mini gold-spray-painted ones) from a length of string. Once baby Adeline is older, she can play with them, spelling out words or making up stories from all the pictures. Here are all 26.
