I teased you last week by just showing you a bit of lumber, glue and some odds and ends of paper, ribbon, etc. So, now for the tell portion.
I saw this project over at a friend's house and have wanted to do it too. The last year or so, I've been collecting word decor. I have home, love, dream and some other words - faith, hope, etc. The one word I did not have, and have been looking for some time for, was "family". Those of you who have been around these parts before, probably have a sense that family is very important to me - not just the one I've tried to create, but also the one that I come from and the one my husband comes from, going back for generations. What I loved most about this project was the little bit of this and the little bit of that aspect. The bits and pieces that don't exactly match, but have just enough of a similar element that it all comes together in the end and ties together in a wonderful and beautiful hodge podge. Proof that with enough glue - you can put anything together and have a fun time doing it.
Now I just need to find a place to put it.
Now, go see what the other kids have brought.
