I'm not the least bit crafty and have no imagination. My DD made a cute shirt at camp this summer and I thought I might try to make one for my friend’s granddaughter. She is going to be a new Nanna soon. Her DS, DIL and granddaughter to be live across the country from her and I thought I could make a shirt with a cute saying on it about her Nanna from Nova Scotia.<br><br>
The problem is I can't think of any cute or funny sayings to put on the shirt ... I would love some ideas.<br><br>
All I can think of is the one, if you think I’m cute, you should see my Nanna. Not very original.

I gave my mom a picture frame that says, "Nanas hold our hands for a little while and our hearts for a lifetime." It always gets an awwwww. Throw in a big handprint and a little one and there ya go.

That does get an awwww <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I was kinda hoping for a funny one. My friend is very gaurded with her feelings, not the mushy type (thinking the new granddaughter might open her up a bit though).

I've got all of our friends thinking on it as well. Doesn't necessarily have to mention NS. Just thinking where they're far apart it would be nice to have a little reminder of her Nana so far away ...<br><br>
She is known for being loud and opinionated ... was trying to think of something cute about being able to hear her all the way out there ...
