I laughed out loud as I typed the title to this post. If you know me, you know that my home decor is a little, um, lacking. It's just not my gift. I really should hire some of my friends to help me search out the look I want (Pottery Barn on a budget). But it falls to the bottom of my list really. Oh well.
Last year I decided that I at least wanted some stuff on the walls...we had only lived her nearly 5 years at that point! So I did some photo collections.
I wanted to throw in some seasonal color here and there so on one wall, I took a 10x10 frame and made a simple non-picture layout with some seasonal papers. I loved how it turned out and decided that I would change it up each season or holiday.
Now it has evolved to have a seasonal quote (usually a Bible verse) on it. I love the daily reminder as I walk by this wall each day.
Here is what it looked like at Christmas:
Before that at Thanksgiving:
Basic Grey again...with Scenic Route letters. I'm not in love with how this turned out when I added the verse. This was the one that started it all...but it had no verse last year. Fall 2010 may be time for a new one. Love the verse, just don't love how it looks spelled out.
I'm laughing again...because you should know that this one stayed up from March until September of last year! Ha! Just a little confession to make you laugh. It's cute though. My Mind's Eye papers and Prima felt letters.
And now...for the new year:
and I hand drew some stitches...too lazy to get out the sewing machine!
Next month I have another Jillibean Soup layout to put in there...love this line of papers! I still have some finishing touches to put on it so I'll share it once it's done.
