Rough Draft

Last week as I was out Christmas shopping for the kids I saw this beautiful print by Jessie Wilcox Smith (something's wrong with blogger and I can't hyperlink, google her, she's awesome) and since the thing that The Elder wants most of all for Christmas is a trundle bed for her dolly I thought I would attempt to duplicate the cradle in the print.
My friend's husband is a carpenter and we traded piano lessons for a little shop time and professional know-how last Friday.

The finished product came out a little long and narrow, so I would call this a first draft, but the construction was pretty simple, and I think I could whip up a second one that might fit Kit a little better in no time.
The first one took about 2 hours, so it's not outside the realm of possibility that I could finish a second one, and paint it, before Christmas. I still have 6 days...
What crazy things are you planning this week?


  1. That rocks! She has room to grow!:)

  2. I can't believe you made that ! you never cease to amaze me with your talent ~ you're a Jill of all trades ! Merry Christmas to you & your family :)
