Okay, maybe I haven't been actively working on this project for quite 7 years, but it has definitely been a thought on my radar for that long - ever since Hurricane Ike hit Texas. We had significant damage to our old house from this horrific storm. As a result, we had to practically gut the inside of our house. There was one wall in particular that meant a lot to me.
This is the wall I painted with my oldest daughter when we decided to re-do the room she would share with her sister. It was a joint effort. The day the contractor came to the house to go over the work that needed to be done, we had a part of the wall saved so that I could later preserve it somehow. I knew at the time I wanted someting along with her poem but I wasn't sure exactly what.
When Cricut came out with the vinyl, it was then that I knew I what I wanted to do, but it took me a while to get up the courage to actually do it. I'm glad I waited until I got my Explore to try this.
I still have a couple of spots that need to be re-done, but overall I'm happy with how it came out!
Do you have a labor of love projec that you haven't quite worked up the courage to try yet? Give it a try! You just might surprise yourself with how well it turns out. And when you do, leave me a link in the comments so I can have a look-see!
