Show and Tell: PEACE

I made this little project about a year ago after much procrastination.  As usual, I have no idea why I waited so long to do it and I absolutely love the way it turned out.  I thought the sentiment sort of fit the season and it would be fun to share with you.

These aren't the best photos because lighting is pretty funky by the time I get home from work every day, nevertheless, I think you'll get the idea:

It's based off of this free Amy Butler pattern from her website.  The pattern is actually an applique pattern done in fabric.


I used 18" X 12" canvases from the dollar store instead and blew up each letter to fit on a 12" X 12" scrap booking paper.  After painting the canvases I just cut out each of the letters and mod podged them on.  So easy.

Right now it hangs over the guest bed (with those amazing little 3M removable strips).

I'm not the only crafty person in my family...notice
the beautiful quilt my mom gave me as a house warming gift~
If there are any linky parties this Christmas week, I'll be posting so make sure to check out
the party tab up top and join a party or two for more great ideas.

Let me know what you think.  I've been thinking of doing something similar
for my niece and nephew in a smaller version using their names. 
Once again, I have no idea why I'm procrastinating but I am.  One of these days I'll get to it.

Peace out!

The lighting does not give these justice. I hearby give you a "doctor's note" to ditch work and photograph that in natural light...

This is adorable! I am going to try this. Thanks for the idea.

Thanks Nicolette! I'll be sure to let my manager know. Actually, now that winter is officially here, the days will start to get longer, and that means it won't be pitch black when I get home at 5:00 pm. Yeah!
