Today I want to share with you a little tip that I originally got from a fellow blogger, The Nester. I have seen so many amazing homemade silhouettes in Blogland recently, and I really did think about trying to copy the idea. But the truth of the matter is that I don't have the patience, or the steady hand, to attempt a halfway decent silhouette of my wriggly little girl.
So I did what any mama would do. I turned on Sesame Street, parked my toddler in front of the TV, and took photo after photo of her sweet little profile.
Then I took her sweet little profile and sent it, along with a $20 personal check, to Lena Bengston, silhouette artist.
A few weeks later, I got this in the mail. Can you believe how precious it is? $20, people! That's all I spent to get a gorgeous 5x7 silhouette of Nina! (The frame was purchased separately, at Michael's, for around $12 in case you're interested!) I am so pleased with the results and the straight up adorable-ness of her work. I can't help staring at it every time I walk into my bedroom!
I highly recommend you check out Lena Bengston if you are, as I was, scared of silhouettes!
