I had some old frames that were hideous just lying in an old box covered in dust. I thought that it was sad they were just rotting away in there not being used or loved. I decided to grab some white spray paint and give it new life. Seriously, white paint fixes everything. Okay, so I made my husband paint the frame for me. He is such a lovely helper.
It sat there white and empty for a while before I decided on what to do with it. I bounced back and forth from chalkboard, pics of kids, and so it sat a little longer with my indecisiveness. I am good at not making up my mind. Perfectionisitic procastinating poootnanny. That is what I am. That may not be a word but you get the idea.
I am walking in Target and this G is staring me in the face. And straight across from the G is some teal glitter just sparking and hypnotizing me. I swear I heard the G say, "Please splash me with that glitter over there." I listened. I even glued the glitter to my fingers and got it in my tea. I drank the tea anyway in hopes of gaining a sparkling personality. My 8 year old wanted to help and by the time we were done it was on my kitchen floor, because, oh yes, we were doing crafts at the kitchen table. It is also my mini-office. Bless this table and how it has served my family.
I found this fabric at AC Moore and knew it was the one to display my G on. As soon as I got home I forced my hubster to cut me some 11x14 boards he had in the garage for flooring. He cut me several pieces so I can glue different fabric to it to change it out for my ADHD satisfaction. I hot glued the fabric to the board on the back and it is not pretty back there. I also could not wait for my G to dry and hot-glued it to the fabric. Shhhh, do not tell anyone. It is dry now. I love it so much. Glitter and me speak the same language.
Grab some things in your home, paint them, hot glue them, modpodge...whatever you want to do. Recycle those things and make them loved. But have fun. I do not advise drinking glitter.
Love the Life You Live In!!
