Old Window as a Gift....

I haven't mentioned this on the blog yet, but my friend Amy and her husband are in the process of adopting a 2nd baby.  They have the baby with them right now, and in a few days, the process will be closed.  So I think it's pretty safe to say that baby Z is now home!

(Here is where I would upload a photo of me & the baby.)
(But due to time, we only got a photo on Amy's camera.)
(You'll have trust me that she's one super-duper cute baby.)

When Amy and her husband adopted Mr. J, I made her a month's worth of freezer meals.  But because we adopted a dog, I just didn't have time to do that again.

I mean, just look at what I have to deal with every day.

I decided to use one of the old windows and make Amy something special that she could use for both kids.  You don't need my step by steps....you can see it yourself in the photos.





The best part were these....


I saw this on Pinterest (I know.  Shocker.) and thought it was a great idea.  So I added it to the window (along with a corkboard & chalkboard).  Now Amy and her husband can write little notes to the kids with a dry-erase marker!

When it was all said and done, it looked like this:

That is probably the last of my "old window" crafts for a while.  
Well.  Until I see something cool on pinterest again.
