Motivational Monday

I’ve had my share of bad days – and I definitely try to do my best to remember that moments are moments. They certainly don’t have to control the rest of the day – week – month – or even year. Life is full of unexpected surprises, bad days, and less than favorable decisions. I think it’s just important to remember that today is now, yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is never promised. 

And in the meantime. There are cookies.

DIY Monogram String Art

While I was looking through my crafting stuffs board on Pinterest, found here, I discovered this string art project from HGTV. 

The instructions are fairly simple – and relatively inexpensive. I already had the nails, and paint. All I had to do was print the printable from HGTV, the wood, and the string.

Here is the link to HGTV for the string art. 

Here is my finished product:

And a one of Josie, who was hell bent on helping:

It was a fairly easy project, even threading the string only took about an hour. I got about halfway at one point and realized half way through that I had started threading differently – so I restarted. It was fine, I wanted to really love my finished product. 

I haven’t decided where in the house I’ll put it yet, but as soon as I get around to a house tour I’m sure you’ll see it again!

Motivational Monday

I think I focus a lot on all of the things that could go wrong in life, and it makes me focus so much on the future – and worse – myself. I think that it’s better not to be such a selfish person. I tend to become so hyper sensitive about all the things that could go wrong in life. You name it, I’ve stressed out about it, that I don’t take each day for what it is and all the possibilities for positive things to happen. I just need to not focus so much on the negative. I need to think about what might go right.

November = Thanksgiving, and I think I need to remember all the things that I have to be thankful for.
