Valentines Day Canvas for My Babies' Daddy

Thursday, February 11, 2010

I think we have a date tomorrow night.  Woot!  

This is what I made for Mr. Smarty this week.  I've always sung You are my Sunshine to our babies.  I still sing it probably everyday.  So I thought I should paint the words on canvas so I don't forget them.  


 Did you make something for your sunshine? Any date ideas?

Hi! Thanks for your visit on my blog. Yes, unfortunately, it did take 4 coats--BUT it was with a generic paint that didn't have a primer mixed in with it. I bet it might only take you two coats or less if you were painting on a wall without a dark color.

Thanks again for stopping by! Love your sunshine artwork!

Awwww. My husband and I sing it to each other. Good memories of that song. I will be thrilled beyond measure to sing it to my little ones in the future.

With a new baby no time to make anything but I was singing this earlier today to Tuvia my 7 week old son. I think I sing it every day too - one of those tunes you never forget!

what a really lovely idea. I brought some small canvas's and painted them a back ground colour and then put each child's handprint on one - looks really nice and is a nice memory also. thanks for sharing. Helen
