Hello Sweeties! Happy Friday! We are in celebration mode here at my house today. What I didn’t really realize was that, because of some brand new end-of-year testing changes and senior exemptions, etc, etc…. well….. that we only have two more days of school next week. And then we are done! Finished! And ohmyword, then my wee Missy Peanut will be graduating! And as you can imagine, I am a whirlwind of emotion about that….
Today I have a sweet home decor project to share with you. A shabby chic wall hanging I made with BasicGrey’s beautiful Tea Garden collection. I must say, I really do love a good wall hanging. They are such an easy way to add a bit of handmade or seasonal decor to your home, and there is always a little nook or cranny they could be stuck into, or a spare doorknob they could hang from. This particular hanging, with the sentiment on this sticker, seems so fitting for the happenings in our house right now, and is a motto I am trying to embrace. Time just moves so quickly, and kids grow up so fast. I am really trying to stop, slow down, and remember each day.
Lots of layers of pretty Tea Garden papers, and a bit of corrugated cardboard for structure. The beautiful flowers were fussy cut from the 12×12 papers. A label sticker sentiment on the top corner, layered over additional banner and border strips. I even made a shaker element on the side using recycled plastic packaging and handmade sequins. I’ve got more details up on the BasicGrey blog, if you care to take a peek!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful, amazing weekend! And cheers to a three-day weekend here in the states!
