A fun piece of homemade art. 


Old piece of wood
Paint (color of your choice)
Paint brush

This project couldn't get any easier. Find an old piece of wood, mine was found by my parents on a road trip home from visiting family in Arizona. Clean the wood with a dry rag to make sure all of the old dirt and dust is removed. 

With your pencil lightly write your word of inspiration. It doesn't have to say LOVE. You could put Hope, Joy, Laugh...whatever inspires you and makes you happy!

Once you have your word penciled on start painting. Take your time and try to make your lines as straight as possible, not easy to do on an old textured piece of wood, but that is part of the charm. 

When complete, let it dry and hang. Could that project get any easier?!? I don't think so! 

What is your word of inspiration?

My mom, referred to as Mama L, and I have been talking about starting a blog for quite some time now. We are always trying new recipes and making new crafts - always being told by friends and family that we need to sell our creations. Instead of selling them we've decided to share our crafty ideas, yummy recipes along with our funny adventures here on our blog. Please follow us and enjoy. We are always trying to find new places to explore, new recipes to cook for our families and most of all we're just having fun!
