After yesterday’s comments on how unique you thought my craft ideas are, I was a bit hesitant to post this! Not so unique, but easy enough for anyone to do!

Last week I gave you a glimpse of a little craft project I had in the works. I wasn’t going to post pictures because this is part of a surprise for a dear friend, but she needs a little pick me up right now. If you have read this blog for very long you know that adoption and orphan care are very important to me. My sweet friend (and her 3 young kids) are in Africa diligently trying to adopt an older sibling set of 3. She has been there since Nov. and had hoped to return home to her husband this week. Plans have changed and we are still all waiting for a super sweet homecoming. While she is away some of us are working on a few surprises. She knows we are decorating the kid’s rooms, but she doesn’t know what all we have up our sleeves. So, sweet friend, here is a peek at some artwork for the girl’s room!

I was inspired by this DwellStudio painting (thanks Bryn!)

Step 1: Draw the basic design on the canvas (I messed with this picture in Photoshop to make the pencil marks show up…it isn’t really a big gray bubble)

Step 2: Cut out random scrapbooking papers for leaves and the bird (I used Amy Butler paper)

Step 3: Glue down the paper. I applied Mod Podge to the back of the paper and then stuck them on the canvas. Just do a thin layer of glue to prevent bubbling. I also did a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper and around the edges.


Step 4: When gluing the paper down some of my paper bled, so I lightly went over the white areas of the canvas with white craft paint.

Step 5: Paint on your branches

Step 6: Seal the canvas. I just used Mod Podge since it was already on hand.1.10painting-05

In the girls’ room these will not be hanging this close together….1.10painting-07

While I was working on these, Littlest Brother joined me in the kitchen. At one point he tried to quietly push the chair over to the countertops. He returned, with the chair and turned it where it was facing the opposite direction of where I was. He thought he was being sneaky, but I knew what was on those countertops.1.10painting-081.10painting-09

Handful. Can I say it again? HANDFUL!!!!

  • Alba - jajajajajaja smart guy! life is tough mum, but to have to older brothers helps 😉

  • Megan H - I love this and I can do it, I know I can. This is my mission, thanks for the idea!

  • christina larsen - “But I’m cute, Momma!”

    Cute bird pics, I hope she enjoys them.

  • Jodi - Adorable. I want to steal every single one of your craft ideas for our new playspace, 3rd birthday party, and shared big girls’ room space. I haven’t finalized any of them yet, but I am sure they will feature one of your many DIY projects. This one looks like it might make the list! Keep em’ coming!

  • Jeannette Swan - Love them!!! It is simple, but still unique – I’m already trying to think of what I can mod podge onto a canvas (I’ve done fabric and painted, but hadn’t thought of paper). I’m still trying to make a tray like you showed at Christmas Gathering – painting and mod podging – not wood burning! I’m so not creative that I bought the same Martha Stewart flowers from Michael’s that you had. I noticed the little silver birds on your mantle – I knew you could use those!!

  • Marie - I love it! Perfect for a girls room. What do you mean by seal the canvas? Do you paint over the entire thing with modge podge?

  • Rachel - Those are perfect!! M and the girls will absolutely love them!

  • laura - love it! and i love your blog. i’ve been checking everyday for months and it brings me a lot of joy…especially as a young, Christian, crafty mom of two. i do have one request…i just had a baby BOY and am having trouble w/ boyish cute crafty ideas for his room. if you have anything to share sometime, i would LOVE it.

  • Jaimie - I was just about to say how GOOD your kids were until I read that they were a handful. It seems like they are really good!!! I love this and I have been thinking of something very similar. Simply Modern Mom also did some canvases that are really similar:

  • Meagan - Those are super cute, Ashley! Very similar to the paper nursery art I will have in my new etsy shop! The onesie is adorable too, BTW! I can just picture that whole Hobby Lobby thing! When I have bought felt from them and told them it was for baby headbands, they looked at me weird too! They just aren’t very hip! 😉

They are bigger pieces of paper, so perhaps that is my problem.

Baby Sister got a new onesie….Chris says she looks like an old school librarian in it. According to this picture, a shocked old school librarian.


Oh my word, she is so cute. Her big eyes…love them.


She has a crazy hairline…the front grows back and the top grows forward. Then they meet in the middle beneath that old Georgia pine (sorry a little country music snuck in on that. Sometimes I can’t help myself)


A friend saw Baby Sister in this onesie and asked if I bought it on etsy….”Nope, I made it.” And I put together a little tutorial for you all. Not that I picture crowds running out to make this funny little onesie, but I know some of you will like it. The best crafts are the ones you laugh while making them…I was laughing making this. I found an image online just looking in Google images for cat eye glasses.



Onesie or T-shirt

1. Print out of the glasses you like (sized the size you want…mine were about 5 inches wide)

2. Shiny black material

3. Iron on crystals or black fabric paint

4. Heat-n-Bond no sew iron on adhesive


Step 1: Print your image the size you want it on the shirt. Mine was about 5 inches wide. Cut the image out.

Step 2: Iron the No-Sew Adhesive to the shiny black material

Step 3: Trace your glasses

Step 4: Cut the black material (that is already adhered to the adhesive) following your traced lines

Step 5: Remove the paper lining on the adhesive1.10glasses-09

Step 6: Iron on the glasses to the onesie. I put a thin fabric between my glasses and the iron because I was afraid the heat would melt the shiny aspect of the black fabric.

Step 7: Arrange your iron-on crystals onto the onesie OR use fabric paint to make the “beads”

Step 8: Iron on the crystals following the package directions1.10glasses-12

So funny story about this onesie. I went to Hobby Lobby to get shiny black fabric. While I was waiting in line for it to be cut the woman in front of me had a pile of fabric too. Her fabric choices included Thomas the Train, Raggedy Ann, Winnie the Pooh, ABC blocks and little lambs. Here’s the conversation that took place:

Hobby Lobby lady to other woman: “What are you making?”

Other Woman: “Oh some burp cloths and other items for babies. I’ve never seen the Raggedy Ann before. It is so great!”

Hobby Lobby Lady: “How cute! I just love all the sweet fabric we have for baby items.”

Hobby Lobby lady turns to me: “And what are you making with that shiny black lycra?”

Me: “A baby oneise.”

Hobby Lobby lady and Other woman in unison: “Oh.” as they looked at each other in disapproval.

I was a bit embarassed. I figured telling them I was going to cut out cateye glasses and crystals would only make them more bewildered. So I sheepishly grinned, got my fabric cut and quickly left.

On a totally separate note, when I was taking pics of this onesie Baby Sister got Littlest Brother pinned to the wall….kicking his little rear.

He was quite shocked and confused. It was pretty funny.1.10glasses-14


After lots of wearing and washing, the iron on adhesive started peeling off. I ended up taking it completely off. I then used the same stencil on Freezer paper and used fabric paint. You can find all kinds of tutorials online for Freezer Paper stenciling. This will last much longer, but ultimately I preferred the look of the shiny fabric over the fabric paint for the glasses. Your call on what you prefer.

  • amanda torres - I LOVE IT! And Little Miss will definitely be able to hold her own with her brothers. I am a firm believer that the high pitch scream little girls give out is their #1 defense.

  • Jo - Ashley!! She is so stinkin’ cute. I love all her rolls, her hair line, her big blue eyes….she is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy cute!!!!

  • Alba - Already learning. Well, being the fourth after three boys sure teaches you some skills 😉 I really like the onesie, but this is one craft no make for me. The best, after the pic of little lady, the conversation and I can imagine their faces.

  • Lauren Roberts - She’s so adorable. I love her retro garbs.

  • christina larsen - My grandma totally had glasses like that. Love them on a onesie.

  • ashlee - you are so clever!! i dont know how you come up with this stuff!

  • Martina - I LOVE this! So cute. I’m keeping this project in my inspiration archive. Are the crystals pretty secure? I’d be concerned they might pop off and be a choking hazard. Then again, they’re so small they probably aren’t a choking hazard anyway!

  • Beth - Oh dear! This is a adorable, my baby just outgrew onesies. Maybe a t-shirt. I have similar run-ins every time someone at Hobby Lobby asks me what my plan is. I’m beginning to think when they see me they think, ‘there’s the lady with the strange ideas.’

  • Lesley - LOVE IT! She’s the absolute cutest!!! Super cute onesie.

  • Missu - You have the cutest baby sister and you take such great photos of her. Keep up the great work. That onesie is too cute. :-)

  • Sophie - This is SO adorable, and your daughter is absolutely beautiful.
    I know Annie, one of the daughters of Karen Russell over at Snapshots Of A Good Life, would LOVE one of these. She went through a phase this year when she would were a pair of these whenever she could.

    And I think I might have to make myself a lady-sized one of these (:

  • dena - Adorable.. my husband is a librarian and I am so making this for a friend’s shower! HECK I may make on for my 2 year old to wear next time she go to visit her daddy at work!

  • Ashleigh - Okay, the shirt is adorable, but the baby, oh so cute. The picture at the beginning of the post is the cutest I’ve seen in a long time. You must enter that photo into some contests.

  • Jaimie - super cute! all these iron on projects around bloggy land lately are making me want to experiment! i love the story too- how funny.

    Now all I need is a small child…

  • Jeannette Swan - Perfect! I wish I could have seen the Hobby Lobby ladies expressions! I can only imagine what they were making would have looked like – no where near as awesome as your creation!!!

  • Lauren - adorable! now i only wish I knew a little girl so I could make this. so clever! I’d love to link up if you don’t mind.

  • valerie - I can not get over how stinkin’ cute this is– both your baby and your onesie. You have mad skills with a camera, too! I am filing this idea (’cause I have to make some for my girls!) at

    Thanks so much for sharing! :)

  • Lucy - Recently I was buying some monkey themed fabric and when I told the lady I was making pajamas (for my girls) she started making all kinds of weird jokes about monkey pajamas for me and “monkey business” with my husband. It was really awkward, especially because she had a loud voice and there were a lot of other people behind me. Anyway, now when they ask what I’m making I just say curtains. They don’t really care anyway. I think this is a fantastic idea and I may have to try it with a stethoscope shape. Oh, and your daughter is adorable, as you well know.

  • Jessica P. - I love this! And I especially love those first two pictures. You should hang one of those up for sure! The polka dots and those blue eyes…too cute. : )

I will have to give it a try on a long-sleeved onesie (it’s cold here in Seattle by Halloween) as I think it will compliment her poodle skirt perfectly! thanks so much!

When I found out that we were expecting a girl I ordered the cutest little pair of booties off of etsy from the seller Gracious May. Those booties were used in this picture that we announced our coming girl with and that same picture is a large canvas in my living room.  I recently had the opportunity to do a little designer session with some of Gracious May’s popular booties. I thought I’d share a little peek from this session….
