Emmy is now 6 months old!
To celebrate Emmy’s monthly milestones, I’ve been using freezer paper stencils to make monthly onesies. This month, I successfully free-handed branches and dabbled on some pinkish-reddish hues to create the blossoms–this was a first! I’ve always been enchanted with cherry blossoms, but never knew how to capture them via paint and brush. While I am no artist, I was very pleased with the results!
Here are the onesies from the previous months:
I’ve been meaning to send out these instructions since last month to some friends, so here goes! Supplies: freezer paper, exacto knife, craft paint*, paintbrush/craft sponge, iron,

- Paint, let dry, and remove the freezer paper.
