Right now my dining room table is covered from end to end with crafting supplies. A pretty kind of mess! In the midst of all kinds of supplies I had a mini brainstorm! I recently picked up an old dictionary from Goodwill, and the thought came to me that both of my boys names just might be included. Sure enough they were!
I love all of the different projects you can do with old dictionary's. I love the print and the little drawings.
This painted frame was sitting empty without glass. I really liked it that way, but this was really the perfect upgrade.
Here is my Noah's page. I added the glitter N, and then set the paper on top of a piece of dropcloth.
I also added a piece of glass to the top. I just used painters tape on the back of the frame to hold everything together.
Noah really enjoyed the idea that his name was in the dictionary!
For Joshua's I simply framed the entire page.
I love that the word josh is right above Joshua. Kind of fun!
They make a nice personal addition to our stairway frames. I may see if I have an interesting rubber stamp where I can stamp a decorative border around each of their names to make the idea stand out more. Without telling someone they might not see that the pages have meaning. It would also add a little more interest!
As always, thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Your visits put a smile on my face!
