Kiss me Kate!

    My cute little niece, Kate, got a big girl bed recently.  She doesn't look so sure of it, does she?
     Well, I decided to paint her name for her over her new bed!
Painting canvas is a pretty easy task.  Pencil on a letter freehand or with a stencil, if you like.   Now the fun part begins-choosing the color combos!  Next comes trimming out the canvas edge with grosgrain ribbon.   Hang the canvas up with a bow and voila! 
     These letters are all over the catalogs, and they are very pricey!!   It just seemed too easy to make and I can't buy something  if I know I can make it.  A simple craft that has a big impact on a room-see for yourselves!Well, take care-gotta fly-Claire
By the way,doesn't she look happy with her
new freshly painted name frames?
