Tomorrow is the very last day.
The last day of Summer, that is.
Now, that’s not according to the calendar or the sizzling Texas temperatures. It’s simply because the kiddies have one more day of freedom until they head back to the little red schoolhouse. (Well, it’s actually a faded brown brick from the 1970′s, but red sounds a bit better.)
I’m going to miss the days of Summer. They always seem to fly by way too quickly. Back to school means back to rigid schedules. And one good thing about strict schedules and having the kids back in school is that it will help me be able to dive into some larger projects. It’s just a tad difficult to start anything too time consuming when the children are home. They have such busy schedules now and of course we have to set aside any extra time for mandatory family fun.
So, here is another small-scale Summer project I was able to squeeze in. My gallery wall has been evolving for some time now. I found a set of square frames at the local thrift store a couple of months ago for a few dollars. I painted the mats and frames white and added a fun little fabric insert. (I didn’t remember to take any before photos but just imagine a goldish looking frame with early 90′s cherub art.)
I ordered the word, “Hi” from my vinyl girl. Now, I should have ordered it on the reverse so I could attach it to the back of the glass, but unfortunately, I forgot. So instead, I had to attach the vinyl directly to the fabric.
It took some finesse, but I was finally able to transfer the words over.
And there you have it. (Hi there, new little frame in my gallery!)
So, what about you? Do you tend to create different types of projects in the Summer than you do for the rest of the year? And what are your true feelings about cherub art?
