This is my new mantra. My husband and I separated back in December with the hopes of working things out and him coming home. We were both going to work on personal things that just were not getting the attention while being together. It didn’t happen. Last Thursday he flew back into town to get the rest of his things. He just drove out this morning. We had a good weekend today, with our son and with each other. We talked about alot of things and we know this is the best for us. We started out being friends and we are continuing to be friends, not just for our son’s sake, but for us too. We get along much better without the pressures of being in a relationship.
I have grown tremendously in the last 6 months, as a person, as a mom, as a friend and so how has. But in the long run, we know this is best and we are both sincerely fine with our decision.
So here is where this craft comes into play. I made this last week. It was a very easy project. I was super excited when I found these stickers at the dollar store:
They are repositionable stickers for the wall. I have always known this saying, but in the last few weeks it seems like it has been everywhere. That’s when I decided that I would adopted it as my mantra, to remember to do those three things to the best of my ability.
Here is my supply list:
- 11 x 14 canvas
- paint brush
The canvas I had on hand from a year or so ago when Big Lots was selling tons. The paint is a sample from Home Depot of Behr’s Premium Plus Ultra, Paint & Primer in one, in the color Millstream. It’s a really pretty light blue.
I didn’t take pictures of all the steps because I felt they were super easy and my very smart blogland friends would know right off the bat =)
Painted canvas the night before and positioned stickers the next morning when dry. Store 3 flowers from another project that will be up later this week and hot glued them to the corner of the canvas. Here is a close up of the upcoming project:
They are quite a bit smaller than the other flowers I’ve been making, but I’m totally in love with them:
And here is my finished project again. I will be putting this in my room on the wall, along with a few other things I have picked up and a shelf that I still need to paint:
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!!
