Have you read that children's book? It always comes to mind when I put up a decoration. It's just a catalyst to do something else in the room. When I hung up my TP home yesterday it made me want to do something about this: Since I don't have a cabinet in there, everything has ended up on this shelf and it's not the most attractive thing you've ever seen. I thought it would be fun this morning to make it a bit cuter. I scoured my mind trying to think of what I could snag from another room to stick up there, but I was drawing a blank. I decided just to make something. This is the easiest artwork on the planet! I got a stray board from the wood shop and painted it white. I taped tree trunk lines and painted them brown. I used the inside of my tape to trace three circles that I glued onto the tree trunks. Seriously easy right?? I brought in a little box so I can still put some lotions or whatever in there and I stuck the branches I trimmed off of the bottom of our Poplar this morning in a vase. I was able to do all while my kids ate their cereal! Now that's the kind of project I like!
