I sure hope your Christmas was a Merry one of many and great blessings!
And I hope that you will carry that Christmas spirit with you every day this year!

And now, Thrifty Thursday...

For today's Thrifty Thursday I was inspired by Pinterest.
Pinterest is soooo addicting!
I absolutley love it because I was already using the concept of saving images that I loved for whatever reason into a folder on my computer, my inspirartion folder. It sure took up alot of harddrive space.
Now...Pinterest is my way of saving those images and being inspired.

I had a small canvas that was formerly white with some lettering.
I was no longer in love with the wording and wanted something new and fresh.
I decied to spray paint the canvas black. Then with a pencil, I freehanded some lyrics to one of my favorite songs....



Who can help but smile when listening to a lil JT?
You know...James Taylor.

After I wrote the words, I just used what I had on hand, I also wanted to use something that would be easy to trace over the lettering without being to thick.
Weapon of choice.....Liquid Paper.


Yeah, that's right.
Then.....
TA DA!


I am in the process of redoing a major wall in my living room gallery style like my hallway.
I plan to incorporate this onto that wall. I will share when I complete that project !
So, please join me back here in Bloggeritaville!

And if you are one of the few that hasn't yet discovered Pinterest, or has yet to join Pinterest and would like to, please leave your email address in either the comment section, or shoot me an email with that information and I will gladly send you a invite!!!

I have added my Cedar Xmas Garland to your party today. I made it from a felled tree given to me by a neighbor's father. Pretty much little to no cost. Thanks for hosting another party and hope you have a great holiday season!
