2 1/2 Years Later

It's finished! The belly cast from my pregnancy that is :)

Kiddo took an interest in his belly cast this week, so it was decided that this was the weekend it would finally get done.....

And he helped every step of the way!

Applying and sanding the dry wall compound.....

painting painting painting....and more painting:)

Thanks Kiddo!

This is a project that has been very rewarding for the whole family, Kiddo gets to see how small he was and we get a great piece of art for our home!

Here are some other examples for belly art :)

That is beautiful. I love how the one side goes up to the shoulder. I have only seen the belly ones. I hope you don't mind but when my child bearing days come I am going to borrow this idea / template. It has such great representation of what the human body is capable of.

It really is amazing to hold it up to my belly now and, I really did that!

The human body is just plain amazing.

What a beautiful way to commemorate a special time in your life. I wish I'd done something like this back in the day. So cool that your child got to be a part of decorating it--sort of a self-portrait :)

I'm glad you're going to be making pants w/me! I'll be checking back... Enjoy your weekend!
