silhouettes and other things



I made this as a Christmas gift for K. She is still young enough that I can show her things and she doesn't question what they are for so I showed her this. It was interesting to listen to her interpret it. It will hang in her bedroom or in the living room, I am not sure which.

I wrote a tutorial at Suite101 about how to make your own silhouettes from photos.

A photo ornament that I made last years.

  1. What a lovely gift. Something to be proud of. I love the idea of the photo-tree-ornament.

  2. I show Issac his gifts all the time--he doesn't care --he likes knowing what is coming, not so keen on surprises. This is adorable.

  5. Very nice take on an old style of art. I like the Victorian feel.

  7. Oh Melissa ~ it's beautiful; what a treasure! My sister and I were always best friends (and still are very close). I love anything that celebrates the beauty of sisterhood.

  8. That is so wonderful. Gifts and decorations with kids' photos or artwork are always the most special.
