Project of the Week: Children Laughing

While looking for child-related quotes for a customer a few months ago, I stumbled across this brief aphorism:

“The laughter of a child is the light of a home.”

I loved the simplicity of the statement and promptly tucked it away for a future plaque design.

When I stocked up on my cookie cutters a few weeks ago, I found a set of alphabet cutters, and I knew they were destined to contribute to this whimsical plaque design. They immediately made me think of the bold letters on toy letter blocks, making them perfect for pairing with a child-focused quote. I incorporated blues, yellows, pinks, and greens into the design so that it is gender neutral, suitable for either a little boy’s or a little girl’s nursery.

Children are blessings from God, and I’d like to think this new design reflects in some small way the great joy children bring to a family.

As with many of my “Projects of the Week,” this plaque isn’t yet available in my Etsy store. Feel free to contact me directly if you’d like to purchase one before I have a chance to make it available online.
