We’ve got 22 days remaining. Twenty-two.
Give or take 14 days here or there.
Tomorrow, our little Emma will be considered full term at 37 weeks. However I’m happy for her to bake a while longer. Like 22 more days.
In the meantime, I’ve joined the flock of pinterest junkies. There are some really great ideas on that site. Like the button letters I made for the nursery.
I’m pretty proud of them, if I do say so myself.
I whipped them up yesterday. It only took me a few hours, in addition to the six weeks it took to gather all the buttons. So, all in all, considering the unfinished projects lying around, not too shabby!
I started with an 8 X 10 painter’s canvas and then covered it with some material. I found a font on a word processing program and enlarged it to the size I needed. Next, I cut out the letters and traced them onto the material using a pencil. Finally, I arranged the buttons within the lines as best I could, then glued them down with fabric glue, as best I could. I hotglued twine to the backside and hung them in a row.
Easy-peasy and pretty cheap too, considering you have plenty of buttons. Or at least some friends with plenty of buttons.
