My husband made this for me as a surprise. It's a canvas of our baby's actual heartbeat the first time we heard it. Here is how he did it: I uploaded the recording of the heartbeat to a website called soundviz, and on there once you can make your picture of the sound wave and they will sell it to you for $30 (as a PDF). Then I had the image made into a canvas from a different website, I think there's a bunch of places to do that (places like shutterfly possibly). Hope that is helpful!

GREAT bible verse craft! just pick up a few free paint tabs from walmart or a home improvement store, write your favorite verses in permanent marker on the different squares. so easy! you could get creative with different colored sharpies or different colored tabs. you could even cut up the squares form a cool collage too. i just made these to hang by my desk in my dorm room at college. by patrica
