Baby Shower Gift

A friend had her baby boy recently, and along came a shower invitation. I am the kind of person who likes to give original gifts, but I have a hard time coming up with the ideas for these gifts. Recently, though, I found my inspiration while at my local craft store: plain white letters to hang on the wall!

But they were too plain for something as special as a shower gift. (Although the first ones I gave as a shower gift, I gave plain because I liked them that way then. -- Inspiration struck later!) So, along came toille-patterned wrapping paper, decopage glue, and clear-coat finish spray.

And HOURS later, here are the letters:

"JONATHAN" is a very long name!

Very nice.... Again, you got all the creative genes in the family...

And you got all the "driven" genes. We SHOULD go into business together, you know?

We were the very lucky recipients of this custom, handmade gift! We love the letters and the paper design is so lovely. Thank you for honoring us with this creation. I'll have to email you a picture of Jonathan's name on the wall.
