Thanks for all the Sweet Times
While looking through photos for another craft project I'll blog about soon, I came across one of Lotti eating a lolly-pop last year. I remembered seeing a Christmas card somewhere (I wish I could remember where, but I'll try and find something similar and pin it for you on pinterest) where a clever crafter had snipped a hole on either side of a fist in a photograph and pushed a candy cane through.
I decided to try it for Valentines. I found a picture of Lotti when she was a newborn, and because she was wearing a 'Dad Rocks' onesie and had her fist in just the right way, I gave her a lollipop to hold. I put the more recent lolly-licking photo with the first in an envelope, added a love letter from her to Daddy, and sealed it all up for her to give him on the day.
It's a fun way to play with old photos, and yes, you could certainly improve it by staging the photo and getting the hand in the right place, adding text and so on... but I kind of like the impromptu nature of this fist full of baby-sweetness!
