A Framed Note for Lucas’ Room


In May I wrote this on my blog for Lucas. It was a spur of the moment sort of thing. I wrote down my “advice” or things I wanted Lucas to know. What good is in doing on my blog? He can’t see it and years from now I will have forgotten about it.

So… I tried to be as creative as is humanly possible for me. Which is not much but I gave it my best shot! I got a shadow box frame and picked out some fun paper. Then wrote in my messy handwriting with a black sharpie.
This was the outcome. It’s a little hard to see in these pictures. It’s not perfect and I made some mistakes but it’s real and that’s how I want it to be. I hope Lucas takes it with him to college so he’ll never forget what his mother has to say to him. πŸ™‚ Right.

  1. I love it! I plan to have my boy's blogs printed into books so they have them as scrapbooks and can read forever the words of wisdom I had to bestow on them when they were little (haha!)! But seriously- it's the same concept! I also plan to start writing little letters to my future daughter-in-laws!

  2. Great idea!! I'm so stealing it! I love your handwriting. I was just thinking to myself as to if my child will ever see the blog I have for him. Will it still be around when he is old enough to care about it? Your note will be though!!! Stopping in from SITS to say hi!

  3. What a beautiful idea … a treasured gift for certain.

    I am in the same boat as far as “craftiness” is concerned, and I am so envious of “those people” who make scrapbooking and sewing and what-not look so terribly easy!

    Thanks for stopping by – and following my blog – and I'll be checking back with you and your fabulous giveaways! πŸ™‚
