So, I had this plain Jane bulletin board hanging in the hallway next to the garage door. I had put some hooks into a while back so that we could hang our keys on it. A few months ago, I had used it to put up notes about what we had going on each week. And that was ok, but to be honest I didn’t do a really good job of keeping up with it each week.
I had been wanting to do some thing to it for a while
So, last week I decided I would paint it.It is hard to tell in this pic (I don’t know why) but the base color is actually turquoise. Once I got that on I felt like it needed something else. So I thought I would add a pennant across the top. Then, I thought, instead of triangles, what about circles or ovals? Well, I painted on the ovals and I thought they looked too much like Easter eggs. And I wanted to add lines and dots to them but I thought that would only make them look MORE like Easter eggs. So, then I came up with owls. So, I turned the ovals into owls. Which I like the owls but I know I will repaint it in a couple of months. I think that it came out much darker then I wanted it to be. However, while I have the owls on here, I decided that this is the perfect time to make a “Who Loves You?” board. I used my Sizzix to cut out some hearts for the top and wrote “who loves you?” on them. Then I punched out some extra hearts and tags to pin on the board for each of us to write messages to each other. I just put it up today, and I kicked it off by writing a little note to each of the guys I live with about why I love them today.
I hope that they jump on board this project with me. Maybe it will give us a better appreciation of each other, and maybe improve some behavior around here. 🙂 I’ll let you know how it goes.
