My daughter, Ashley, is a crackerjack crafter.
She gets it honest, inheriting the creative gene from many generations back.
Her newest project
has been to learn pretty lettering and calligraphy.
After visiting her a couple of weeks ago,
I returned with a couple of her custom canvases she created.
The "oh How He loves Us" one, was a gift to her Aunt Bo,
which I was to deliver.
The second was destined for a "trouble spot" in my kitchen,
...to hide this less-than-beautiful cable connection, outlet, and cordless phone base.
A large platter or framed print of some kind covers this area at all times,
but I do often change them out.
The aqua color fit well in with my kitchen,
and I love the quote... "Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fears."
I need to be reminded of that often! :)
But first, the raw edges of the canvas needed a more finished look.
Grabbed a roll of jute twine and my glue gun...
...and added a "frame" of sorts.
The canvas adds a whimsical touch, and conceals the outlets and phone perfectly...
you'd never guess they were lurking behind, huh?
Paired the pretty canvas with two of the favorite photos of my kids
On another note,
Thanking God that our little area of the South was spared any major damage
from yesterday's storms. Praying for those that didn't fare so well!
How was it in your neck of the woods?
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
