For so many reasons, it’s become a tradition for almost every occasion, for Joy Belle to paint us, grandparents, aunts, and uncles a gift. It all started because I absolutely love to paint, I want Joy Belle to be able to express herself, and I hope (why wouldn’t I?) that she loves crafting as much as I do.
Just before Christmas last year, Joy Belle was cast-free for the first time since she was 6 days old, so I really wanted to get her feet prints on ornaments to recognize God’s goodness. On one side was her footprint, with this scripture on the other side. It was a sweet, priceless gift we’ll have forever and so will our loved ones.
Earlier in the year, we had plates made for the grandparents with her tiny handprint. I absolutely love documenting those tiny, growing hands and feet.
This year, we’re celebrating the fact that she’s our walking miracle baby. Those once crooked feet are straight-ish, wrinkled all over, covered in only a million creases, and beautiful. So, we documented this moment in time with footprints of those precious feet on an ornament once again.
Along with our footprint ornament, I decided to let Joy Belle paint ornaments for our family. Since she’s our little angel, we decided the angel ornament would be perfect. With all of the rainy days that we’ve had lately, The Clay Spot has been one of our favorite outings.
Stacie (owner of The Clay Spot) is such a gem to work with. She’s wonderful with children, very patient, and extremely talented.
