Indiana Love Sign {Paint Stick Project}

Indiana state sign DIY

Back in September I hosted a State Pride Tour with a bunch of other DIY bloggers.  It was seriously so much fun creating a project that culminates the place you call home.  I decided to tackle another Indiana project that honors Indiana farming.  One of the main crops in Indiana is soybeans.  In fact Indiana ranks 4th overall in soybean production.  Did you know that Plaid makes Soy paint?  My guess is – many of those beans came right here from my great state.

Measurement Conversion Chart

Back in 2011 I redid the inside on one of my cabinets to hang all of my measuring cups and spoons and then added in a vinyl measurement conversion chart above that.  Between these two projects I have gotten over 177,000 pins and those two posts continue to be in the top 5 pages visited on my site each month – two and half year later.  So I thought I would revisit it. To this day the cabinet looks exactly the same, and I have not lost one measuring spoon or cup – minor miracle and an organization success in my book..

Be the Good in the World {Paint Stick Project}

be-the-good-in-the-world

I have adored the Ghandi quote “Believe there is good in the world,” with the emphasis on “Be the Good” that many people have made into pallet art, t-shirts and printables.  I wanted a smaller sign for the gallery wall in my studio.  Armed with some 5 gallon paint sticks I got to work on it and I am so pleased with the results.

Meaningful and Custom Name Board

Yesterday I shared with you about the ultimate trade I made with my personal trainer friend Erin.  We are currently working on decorating her son’s room as part of the trade.  Her and her husband created the planked and shelved wall like I made for Isaac’s room.  It looks awesome, but it needed some color and custom art – one that was encouraging but also empowering.  I designed it in the Silhouette Studio program…free file available.
