One Wintry Eve

Try to remember back to just the other day when I showed you a picture of my TO DO list. It was 17 items long, and it was just BLOWING my mind. I'm happy to report, about 4 or 5 of those items on my list got finished today. You see, when I'm faced with a 3-day weekend, the creative juices just BURST FORTH!

One of the items on my list was to use my Cricut machine and print out a saying on sticky paper that I would attach to my wall of pictures. I've been wanting to do this for awhile because, let's face it, this wall just looks....

a little, how should I say it? Dare I say it...






BORING. Naked. Say what you will, it needed something. I searched the Internet looking for just the right saying. Not something too fru-fru or sickly sweet. Something PERFECT. At least, perfect for my home.

Needless to say, when I went in search of my sticky paper for my Cricut, I didn't have enough. Remember, I've been wanting to do this for a LONG TIME! It's been written down from one to-do list to the other for weeks. I didn't want to wait, so I thought, Hey, I can free-hand the letters and paint them myself!

Sometimes I just amaze myself.

It took me some time, and some erasing, I'm not gonna lie...and this is the final result.

I'm sure the real vinyl letters would've looked more professional. But I like it. It makes the wall look more filled in. I wish I could find more of these square frames from the Martha Stewart Line at Kmart. My mother so graciously gave these to me, and I can't find them in the store anymore. If any of you have seen these, let me know where!

Here's a picture that Grace took while I was painting. I like this angle.

Y'all let me know what you think. If it's bad, please don't comment! For all our sakes!

  2. Oh, and I forgot to say that I LOVE MaryJane's Farm! I like her website, have her "Ideabook" and also subscribe to her magazine. I'm glad someone else knows who she is...everyone else is like, "MaryJane who?"...
