Baby Sock Specimen Art
Today I was storing away some baby clothes. I could of just cried. I held every little outfit and cuddled it! I came across a baby sock and it fit right on my thumb.
As all mothers do, I want to keep lots of outfits because they give me the warm fuzzies. It seems like such a shame to stuff them into a spacebag and have them just sit there though.
Aha! An idea!
I have this shadowbox frame that I super glued some keys in. I'm not really happy with the frame color or the fact you can see the glue all over the keys. Oh and it fell off the wall and got busted.
I gave the shadowbox many many coats of white paint. I did not sand or prime. I know, I know. By the way, a dish green scrubbie doesn't do well as sandpaper. LOL, just a little FYI.
I popped in a light piece of scrapbook paper, pinned the socks in place, and used letter stickers for each kiddos initial. Tada! Laundry room art!
Now when I'm standing in the laundry room folding my life away, I can remember when they were sooo tiny and it will make it so much better.
Keep an eye out for more laundry room projects! The laundry/mudroom is my current project. Here's what's up- a little laundry organization, shoe storage, de-brown laminating, family calendar, and bench seating.
Until next time!
