Saturday Snapshot: Snip, Snip!

Remember the silhouettes we had done as Christmas gifts last year? We did another silhouette today! I was bummed last year because she was only able to do 3 copies (which all went as gifts). So this year’s silhouette is MINE. 🙂

And while I think last year’s was more true to what the kids looked like then (as opposed to this year’s looking sorta like them), I’m still really happy with how it came out! (And Jean is still amazing. It’s so cool to watch her craft.)

(I forgot to mention that Burke and Maggie are twins, so she made Maggie “older” than the rest…which, I think, is why I like last year’s better…)


Way Back When-esday

So, this isn’t a way-back photo (it’s from November), but it’s a way-back technique…so that counts, right?

We got silhouettes done of the kids as gifts to the grandparents this year. (This is actually a scan of the finished, framed project … I didn’t want to take it out of the frame!)

We went to our local library and each kid sat for about 5 – 10 minutes while Jean snip-snipped away at the paper. She was amazing to watch! She had an adjustable chair set up so she could position the kid to the height she needed and then a portable DVD player (with a fish DVD playing – lots of action) set up so that your child would look in the right direction. And then her hands just flew across the paper. I was quite impressed.
