Getting Crafty

Recently I decided to try my hand in being crafty. I have been wanting to get letters for Anastyn's name to hang above her crib. I was in Hobby Lobby one day and saw these letters were one sale. So I decided to buy some paint, the letters, some brushes and just do it myself! You must realize that I am not an artist, I don't ever draw and for some reason I thought this would be a lot easier than it turned out. I was thinking I would only do polka dots and stripes, but her bedding has flowers, and other patterns that I decided I was going to try my hand at. Nathan did the stripes, because I can't draw a straight line to save my life. Here is the finished product next to the quilt that goes in her room. I haven't gotten them hung up yet, hopefully soon though. Overall I am pleased with how they ended up. We definitely worked hard on them.
