Last weekend, Ellerie spotted her watercolor paints up in her closet and wanted to paint. I got everything set up, strapped her into her highchair and prepared myself for the five minutes of "coloring" before she was splashing in the water and declaring herself "all done!"
And after my usual activity of writing out potential baby names for #2 (the boy name is set! the girl name TBD!), I wrote "thank you." And loved the look enough to repeat it in rainbow colors.
Sidenote : this brush set from Ikea is so great. I use that pointy one for handwriting with watercolor and am always so pleased.
I realized quickly that this will be perfect graphic in case we do get gifts at Ellerie's big rainbow bash at the end of the month. I took a photo of the words with my iPhone and worked a bit of magic in PSE (basically just boosting the color and completely white-ing out the background) and printed them on textured cardstock. They turned out so cute I figured I'd offer them up here as a free download. Consider this a MAKE&GIVE30 project.

The cards are designed to fit two to one 8.5x11 page and once folded are 5.5x4.25. They fit into A2 envelopes like these.
And THANK YOU. It's been a crazy few months around here and I think it's only going to get more insane. I appreciate you reading what I write in this space and being supportive of my various projects.
