My roots run deep in Arkansas.. I was born and raised there. The majority of my family and many friends still live there. I now reside in Texas, but those sweet, southern Arkansas souls are in my heart everyday. They are in my manners.. They are in my accent.. They are in my friendliness.. They are the reason I “cook with love” and “never met a stranger”.
The communities of Mayflower and
Vilonia suffered incredible losses in a tornado last evening, and I wanted to mention them. They are weighing heavily on my mind, as well as several towns in other states.
Thank you for reading.
Until next time,
Hi! I’ve been wanting to create something for my recently repainted hallway with items on hand.. I decided to use leftover wallpaper from my guest bath (yes, wallpaper is back ladies and gents), a stretched canvas, and a paper mache initial. I used “V” for my last name, although this would also be cute in a baby’s room with the wee ones first initial.
Level of Difficulty: Easy
piece of wallpaper large enough to wrap around canvas
paper mache or cardboard letter/initial
1. Paint letter (front and side). Let dry.
2. Wrap wallpaper snugly around canvas.
3. Staple to wooden back of canvas.
4. Trim any excess paper.
5. Glue letter to front of newly wallpapered canvas.
6. Hang or frame, and enjoy.
Until next time,
It’s a beautiful spring day here in Texas! What’s a girl to do? Spending time outside with the boys and finding a new craft project are both on the afternoon agenda.
We recently painted our hallway, and the art I had there before no longer compliments the space. I haven’t been able to find anything that I love, so I plan to create something with some items I have on hand. Stay tuned…
