DIY BANNER

DIYBANNER_TEE2ENVISAGE

 

The love travels every now and then for work and comes home to a simple little surprise.  This time I decided to craft up a banner.  Its like a min-welcome home present.BANNER0

Gather these items.  Most you have lying around the home somewhere.  You can use a ruler and scissors if you don’t have a paper trimmer.BANNER4

Cut the paper 3×4 inches or to whatever size you desire.  Instead of leaving them square I cut a triangle on the bottom of each square.BANNER3

I used the triangle scraps for part of my message. Write your message on each squares/triangles.BANNER1

Thread your message together and use thumb tacks to pin it to the wall and Viola…a message to your sweetie.

Whats crafting on this Thursday for ya?  Please share.

A HINT of gold: CHEVRON and lines.

Oh how the mouse has been needing company. At home and the office space. FINALLY I got around to making them. Simple and too easy. Had everything but the cork piece. Found it at a garage sale for 0.50 cents! Score.

CHEVRONLINES1_TEE2ENVISAGE

Oh this 1 can of gold spray paint has lasted me.

I eyeballed the lines as I taped it up. It is about an inch apart.

Next you are going to use your X-acto knife and cute out certain pieces that you would want your pattern.

Be sure to be outside or in an open space before using your spray paint. I was in my patio with the nice touch of pine scraps on the balcony. Let the spray paint dry for about 10-15 mins. Spray a second coat if your heart desires for it. Then let it dry another 10-15 mins before peeling off the painters tape.

See what happens when the gloomy weather rolls around? My craft creativity oozes out of me. Hope you enjoyed this and happy Wednesday.

NO DOUBT!

YOUGITIT_TEE2ENVISAGE

I was take myself into a tour of other things illustration has to offer and stumbled on these squares.  Sooo much on illustration I have not explored just yet.  In mean while…what have you been doubting yourself with?  Set your goals and go after it.  Self-doubt kills confidence.  Walk out the door everyday wearing your confidence and Tell yourself you GOT what it takes.  Think of it as a MUST accessory you leave with everyday.  Happy YOU day.  HAPPY Monday.

DIY message in a JAR.

As promised here is the message in a jar post I made for Mel’s farewell-new job-birthday celebrations.

DIYMESSAGEINAJAR_TEE2ENVISAGE

WHAT YOU NEED:

1} A jar to store your messages (Jar from dollar tree)

2} A pile of 3×2″ white papers (computer paper is just fine)

3} A bunch of four inch strings for your guest to tie their message ( I used hemp strings)

4} Two card 8 x 12″ board pieces (cardboard from old boxes)

5} Utensils for your guest to write with.  Sharpies never a bad idea.

6} AND your creativity!

Message in a jar can be made for any occasion.  Its like a jar of reminders to boost ya up just when ya need it!  A gift that is thoughtful, unique, and filled with greatness.  Perfect gift for Mel as she left PDX–a little message from EVERYONE.  A bunch of messages for her to read when the homesick feeling rolls around.  The white cap was too plain I had to fancy it up with words and some colors.  The cap with SIX words I felt was necessary for her new chapter: perseverance, resilient, believe, hope, faith, and love.   Have fun creating your jar filled with messages for your love one.  Please share if you do–I would love to see the jar you create.

EIGHT DAYS!

8DAYS_TEE2ENVISAGE

What is this Sweetest day people are talking about?  Another imitation of Valentines day I thought to myself.  I paid it no mind and didn’t bother to do more research until a few friends this weekend asked me what do I have planned for my half?  I said with confidence, “This girls GOT IT! She’s  got it, she’s  got it!” as I’m dancing in a circle. *giggles*   Ohhh I was being silly.

Sweetest day is a holiday mostly celebrated in the Great lakes region.  A day of opportunity to celebrate remembrance of the sick, the aged and orphans, and any friends, relatives, and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.  Like I said, “another imitated V-Day!”.

At the get together last week one of my guy friend mentioned this day and said, “SWEETEST day is made for girls to spoil the guys for once.  I thought hmmm…it sounds great…BUT it wasn’t meant for that!  I told him give me one reason why it should be for the girls to splurge on the guys for once.  His answer:  “It will show your appreciation and love for the guys, but when you do that it will be reciprocated.  Love comes full circle anyways.  Men work hard…we put you ladies first everyday.”  I personally never really celebrated Valentines day.  I feel that the love should be shared everyday and when days like this comes around its a reminder to keep the lovin’ flowing.  ANYWAYS…I took my love one to the DAVE CHAPPELLE SHOW for some great laughs last night!  Celebrating a just because day. *SMILES*

What do you have gathered for your SWEETHEART?  You still have exactly 8 days.  Get on it.  Have a lovely SUNDAY!
