Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Doggy Silhouette for the Nursery

This was my contribution to daughter #3's new baby nursery. 

She wanted a silhouette of a black lab.  I googled dog silhouette free images and a boatload of dog silhouettes magically appeared. 

I printed the one I liked, took it to the UPS store, where the nice kid at the counter blew it up for me.  I took it home, cut it out, traced it on a canvas and filled it in with black acrylic paint. 

Not exactly Pottery Barn quality put pretty darn close.  And the price was a lot better too.

I love to see crafts that are done with a little creativity and not too much money! Very cute. I didn't know UPS had copy services. You will have to post some pictures of the finished nursery!

Love it. But I think a silhouette of you would have been more fun.
