. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Addilyn's gift to daddy

December 29, 2013

Addilyn's gift to daddy


I usually have a hard time choosing a good present for Chris and never know what to get him that, especially a gift that isn't super expensive.  I was really excited to give him a gift "from" Addilyn this year.  And this one was free and may have made him shed a few sentimental tears.  (Which to my happiness isn't hard to do when it involves him thinking or talking about Addilyn). 

After making our little mistletoe craft I wanted to do something else with footprints.  I'm a little sad I didn't think of these gifts sooner because I think they would've made great grandmother gifts too. 


I saw a few similar prints like this on etsy but decided to make one on a canvas that I already had.  I used fabric paint for the writing so that I could do it a little neater than if I used a paintbrush.  


I love how it turned out and Chris loved it too and is excited about hanging it in his office.  And now I kind of want to put Addilyn's footprint on everything.  

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! If you're like me you don't even love looking at your Christmas tree anymore because you're sad that it is all over.  I plan on going through and sharing some (or lots) of our pictures from the last week tomorrow.

That is SO cute! I love foot print art. I was going to do snow men w/ my nieces this weekend but ran out of time. I think they would love dipping their feet in paint!

I loved doing gifts with hand and footprints when mine were little. So sweet! I thought I was the only one who was feeling sad when looking at my Christmas decorations. I am almost done taking them down, which is early for me. It was just too depressing for me having them up when Christmas was over.

This is such a great idea! I guess I missed the boat for Christmas, but my husband's birthday is coming up soon so I may have to steel it for that... thanks for the inspiration! I love reading your blog, as usual :)

That is such a wonderful gift! Sentimental gifts are so much more meaningful than anything you could buy in a store.
