babywatercolors

it takes guts for me to try anything artsy. it's just not in my nature. but i got it in my head that i wanted some "art" in the baby's room. and if there's one thing i've learned at preschool, it's that my favorite art is imperfect. imperfect, i thought... i can do that.

so i got brave. i bought white frames at ikea and a cheap set of watercolors. and painted. grant painted too! he is by far the artist in the family. and you know what? it was so fun. i sat at the table all sunday afternoon, just playing with paint. not worried about perfect. i love how they turned out!

these are truly lovely, summer - a beautiful hand crafted addition to the nursery. and just think, before you know it you will be framing the artwork made by your own little babe! i adore children's artwork & all their perfect imperfections : )

Pretty... you both picked wonderful colors. They are such happy artwork. I love that dresser and mirror together. You are making quite a lovely spot for your little one.

I love them! And they *are* perfect. Perfect expressions of your love for the baby, and perfect additions to that pretty room! There is nothing better than a handmade-with-love gift; I've been enjoying making art for our baby's room lately too. : )

Those look amazing! Better than anything you could buy in the stores. I loved watercolors when I was younger.

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
