The four of us have been friends with Rachel since before cell phones and realistically usable in-home internet (farrrrr before even the possibility of streaming video), and before anything really mattered besides riding bikes and rollerblading outside. Fast forward just a couple of decades and here we are prepping for her first baby shower. Rachel and I both live in Orange County, California, so two of the girls flew in from Hawaii and one from NYC. We spent the night before the shower painting mini canvases that we would later overlay letters spelling "Katie" on for decor and our traditional "Photo Booth" session.
We shocked ourselves with our newly discovered hidden art skills and agreed that Rachel would be crazy not to want to keep these beautiful canvases as decor for her daughter's nursery. We also planned to let her guess who painted which painting, having Rachel "read" our personal qualities that were clearly spoken through the colors and strokes of each of our unique pieces of artwork.
This project was such a different and fun activity for us since none of us had done an "art project" like this since we were kids, and it added a unique and personal touch to Rachel's baby shower. All you need are acrylic paints, paint brushes, some canvases, lots of wine, and of course some awesome friends!
