DIY Pallet Valentine Art

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.

I Pledge of Allegiance Patriotic Sign

The 4th of July is right around the corner.  I have a couple of patriotic decorations like my President’s Day Pillow and my “God Bless America” Button frame but I have nothing on the walls.    How many times in your school years did you say “the pledge?”  I venture to say in the thousands for sure.  Do they still say “the pledge” in the public schools?  I am not sure if they do or not but I now have it on my walls to remind me of the amazing nation I live in and the flag that represents it.

Be the Good in the World {Paint Stick Project}

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.
