They are still my favorite things...

I very rarely do any craft project just because I like something or want to make something.  I usually put whatever demands my kids ask for first, and it doesn't seem that I get around to my own projects as much as I'd like.  So when I made these little sketches a couple of years ago it really felt like a gift to myself.

 Every morning they are one of the first things that I see, and I love looking at these little sketches.  My little one's nose that looked the same as in that very first ultrasound I saw of her.   These little drawings make me smile.

I decided it was time to update them.  I wanted to share them here on the blog too, in case you'd like to add it to your holiday "to make for gifts" list!
  What's so lovely about this project is that it's simple.  Just a bit of tracing.  You can use photoshop, or you can use an app like sketchbook pro.

Then you can get rid of the photograph, leaving just the traced image. 
I added in some flowers, which I made using this technique.

I hope that this little post inspires you to make some of your own sketchings of your children... I'm sure you won't regret it!

Have a great week everyone!
