My Baby's Feet

First of all, happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends out there.

I was cleaning my daughter's room this morning when I came across the lid to this basket. The basket was given to me by my mom and, at birth, the nurses had my daughter's footprints stamped with black ink on the inside of the lid.

A few weeks later I was looking at the lid and ran my fingers across the footprints and "aaahhhh!" they smeared. I was devastated. I thought, how in the world am I going to make these things stay forever. Voila! Out come my scrapbook supplies. I put a coat of diamond glaze over the top and now they are set forever.

Lately, I've been thinking of selling off some of my scrapbook supplies since I'm going mostly digital. Then I think of all the projects (school, home, work) that I have done with those supplies. You just never know when you might need a stapler with colored staples, a heat gun, glitter, ink of various colors, stamps galore, or even diamond glaze....

I think I'll keep it all. :)
