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.
I am not a huge seasonal decorator. Are you? I don’t have a lots of tchotchkes and other décor to just change it up every season. I am pretty simplistic in my approach to decorating. I usually decorate maybe one entryway table seasonally and maybe add in a few new pillows since I love making them. I decided to create a large DIY “LOVE” art for Valentine’s day. However, I used untraditional Valentine’s day colors so I can display it year round. It looks like a mini pallet.
This month’s Silhouette promo (begins tomorrow) is on all their specialty media like printable canvas, magnet paper, tattoo paper, foil, adhesive cardstock and more. My 2nd grade son is currently learning the 50 states in school. I thought cutting out a blank USA map on some magnet paper would help him learn his states quicker. Let me tell you…it is helping me learn too. Apparently my US geography sucks since my husband had to put the puzzle together initially. #geographyfail
