I am a sucker for handprint art. Or footprint art. Anything that I can make using the hand or footprint of my babies. For me, it is like freezing a little piece of them into a little slice of time. I get to not only have a permanent picture of their print, but I get to make something fun with it. A keepsake. Something I treasure. So, I have turned this into a holiday ritual with the crazies -- making something festive with their prints. What I also have done, is placed the art we make with pictures of them in their Christmas pajamas of the year that we did it. Just a way to remember who these little people were at the time that they left their mark on something.
These holiday crafts with the crazies display beautifully with pictures of them & will be something that I treasure every year when I pull them out & hang them up in December. I, of course, adore them & kids, to me, make the holiday season so fun.
So what could be better than decorating my house with them?!?
This is my favorite annual pajama pic of the crazies yet -- I found a great deal on some 16x20 & 8x10 canvas prints & LOVE them displayed in their Christmas pajamas right above the plate we made this season.
