Pastimes Online Presents…(258)

our newest and youngest employee…London Jean born August 28. Shes ready to take orders and cut kits and star in the next educational video…when she wakes up from her nap!


So since this new little beauty has come into the Moss house I now can make things for her as well as everyone else and it’s been so fun…

First I did these name plates:

start with a canvas board that you can buy at Michaels,

pick your shapes, square, round, rectangle and then pick your size…I varied the sizes

Next: pick your font I chose something uplifting and fun. You want one letter per 8.5 x 11″ sheet of paper. Change your print settings to print outline instead of solid – just to save ink:)

Next: pick your fabrics. I wanted her name to coordinate with A Kitens Tale bom which will be hanging in her room soon…so that’s the fabrics I chose to work with. If I didn’t have a big enough piece in the colours I wanted I just pieced it… 

Now play with placement of the letters on your boards, floss in different colours and have fun!

then just staple it to your borads, nice and tight making sure you have the letter in the front straight..enjoy!

I love to personalize things for people, so I bought this kit (shhhhh don’t tell anyone) and modified (of course) it with her name…


So until next time, thanks for visiting, asking me where I’ve been and how I’ve been doing…

remember to stay happy and creative everyday!

  1. oh my gosh, let me be the first blog post to congratulate you! Wow, what a gorgeous gift… I'm thrilled for you. London is so precious, I love the name. You are going to be one incredibly creative mama. Take time to rest, heal, enjoy and be gentle on yourself. (and if I can encourage any new mom – throw away the baby books and let yourself just be!)
    Congratulations again to you and your new family!

  2. She is beautiful! Congratulations! I would love to see the name "canvasses" hanging, if you have a pic – what a great gift idea!

  3. Oh I knew it, I knew it!!! I saw a peek of a belly in one of your shots but didn't ask (just in case you know). I was waiting and waiting for a happy little announcement.

    Congratulation Valerie! She's a beautiful little girl. How proud you both must be. Relax and enjoy your little bundle. They grow so quickly.
