I am lucky that I have 2 sisters. My girls are lucky that they have a sister.
Lets back pedal a little bit… My parents came to the United States when I was 3, and my mom was heavily pregnant. How lucky am I that she gave me a sister? Because I didn’t know any English until I started kindergarten, and because my parents spoke very little English themselves, my sister and I were BFFs by default. We did everything together. We shared a room together, we played with hand-me-down barbies together, we rode bikes down the street, we walked to school together…the list goes on and on! My 2nd sister wasn’t born until I was in middle school, but I helped my mom raise her. Needless to say, we are still pretty close to one another.
I was on the simple as that blog, and I can across a picture of her 2 daughters with the words “Because I have a sister I will always have a friend.” Here is the link: http://simpleasthatblog.com/2014/07/simple-things-sunday-explorealberta.html
I don’t know why, but that immediately hit home with me! I knew that I wanted to make some handwritten art for my girls’ room, because it was just perfect. Here’s what I came up with:
and here it is framed:
I used an old ikea frame that I already had, and the stars are Studio Calico stickers.
