Title: Baby's Journey
Hostess: Candace, candylou
Day/Date: Saturday, June 16th
Time: 4:00pm EST
Hi there! This is my second time hosting a VSN challenge, and I'm excited to share my challenge with you today! First of all, I have to thank my friend, Crafty Math Chick, for this challenge idea. I mentioned to her that I wanted to do a baby card for my VSN challenge, but I wasn't quite sure about the details of it. She came up with this wonderful challenge and shared this sweet poem with me, so I cannot take the credit for it! Thank you!!!
This challenge is inspired by this poem:
Baby's First Journey by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Lightly they hold him and lightly they sway him-
Soft as a pillow are somebody's arms.
Down he goes slowly, ever so lowly
Over the rim of the cradle they lay him-
Baby's first journey is free from alarms.
Baby is growing while Mama sings by-lo,
Sturdy and rosy and laughing and fair,
Crowing and growing past every one's knowing,
Out goes the cradle and in comes the 'high-lo,'
Baby's next journey is into this chair.
Crying or cooing or waking or sleeping,
Baby is ever a thing to adore.
Look at him yonder-oh what a wonder,
Who would believe it, the darling is creeping,
Baby's next journey is over the floor.
Sweeter and cuter and brighter and stronger,
Mama can see every day how he's grown.
Shoes are all battered, stockings all tattered,
Oh! but the baby is baby no longer
Look at the fellow-he's walking alone!
Challenge: Incorporate movement/motion/travel into a baby card. For example, you could make a card/project with a baby carriage, stroller, stork, a mobile (since it moves), a rocking chair, etc. I hope you have fun with my challenge!
