where does the time go?

We've been working hard on a new collection of custom silhouettes!I know silhouettes are as old as time...I can actually remember making them in school for Mother's Day....sitting up tall in a chair with a projector light shining on my profile as my teacher traced my little face onto a piece of black construction paper taped to the wall...and then carefully cutting it out.

When you have children you want to cherish their sweet angel faces...preserve them forever. There are times when you sit back and look at your babies and it literally takes your breath away when you think of how BIG they've gotten and how much they've changed. I've recently done that with my five year old, Tyson Kwaku....
it seems like he was JUST a baby...following behind me, wanting to rub my ears all day....and now he is FIVE! Yikes! Although I love each stage my children are going through....I wanted to remember this stage...forever.

I found a perfect picture from our trip to Florida last year that would allow me to trace his profile and create a custom silhouette canvas to hang in his room. When we got it back from the printer he was SO excited to see himself hanging on the wall and I was so happy to have a keepsake that he and I can cherish for years to come.

Seeing as though my style is a bit more modern than most traditional silhouettes allow for...I decided to spice mine up a bit with a "mod dots" background in four different color palettes.

These are priced at $145 and that includes our time to create the silhouette from the photo you send in.

We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoy making them!
