MOM and JAN don't keep reading. Just stop at the photo! Look, Oscar is learning to sit up!
So anyway, I saw this cool gift idea on Pinterest. If you want to buy one, here's the Etsy listing. Finding the pennies took days of searching and, ultimately, swapping a pile of pennies in a tip jar at the copy shop for a dollar bill. That was the mother lode--found all the years I needed!
This is for my mom so I included four pennies--one for each of her daughters and one for each of her grandchildren.
After I found the pennies and a keyring (from the junk drawer ;) The drilling and assembly took about 5 minutes.
My favorite part is the difference between Oscar's shiny penny and my tarnished one. But his is mostly zinc and mine is all copper, baby!
