Quick and EASY Wall Fun and Giveaway!

Before I tell you about the give-away (sorry, this giveaway is over) , I will tell you how to have decorating fun for only $7.50!

Yep, $7.50 is all it cost and it looks like this...
I went to TJ Maxx and purchsed this...
Sorry it's blurry...it's not your eyes. But this does exactly what it says, Peel, Stick, remove and reposition. Easy, Fast and Inexpensive.
After I was done. I realized that I could keep the bird outline part and use it as a stencil once for another project. It would stick down, I could stencil it in black silhouette then throw the stencil away. Now I will have to do another project...maybe a bird silhouette pillow?

And did I tell you it makes enough for two birds on limbs with leaves? Yea, all for $7.50!! The best part to me other than it being cheap and easy, is that when you get tired of it, just peel it off and no harm to your walls. If you are like me, my taste changes almost on a daily basis and I change things around all the time. This happens when you become an empty nester, stay at home wife and love decorating!

So while we are on the hall wall, I will show you how I decorated it with my children's pictures.
Purchased at Hobby Lobby. Loved the silhouettes of boy and girl. Instead of putting in their pictures, I just added their names and a heading of "Our Kids". Instant art.

My kids when they were young.

Daughter's hand print when she was 2 years old.

Son's hand print when he was 5 yrs. old. I cross-stitched the saying, "This is to remind my mommy, when I've grown so big and tall, that once I was a little boy and my hands were very small."

My kids at ages 10 and 1 1/2 years old. I used material to cover the mat.

The above picture was of my daughter's hands. The hands were blue, yellow (which has faded to almost gone) and pink to represent tulips. The sides of her hands were used to make the green leaves and stems. She was 2 when I did with with her. She is now 20. Click on any picture to enlarge for viewing details.

Now on to the give-away! Do you remember this pillow that I recently made?
French Inspired Pillow Give-Away!!
I have decided that since I have over 200 followers and over 52,500 visitors on my blog in only a little under 3 months, that it was a good time to celebrate!  Don't you think? I really appreciate all who have commented and become a follower as well.  I didn't realize that blogging was going to not only be a way to document my projects, but be so fun too.

So here are the rules:

Become a follower then comment that you became a follower on this blog. That is one entry. If you happen to already be a follower, then comment that you are such.

Second entry will be, if you talk about my give-away on your blog, then come back here and comment that you did such. It will allow you a second entry.

Remember, the comment becomes your entry into the give-away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will have a random number generator select the winner on the morning of February 14! So the winner will get a French Inspired Pillow just for Valentine's Day!  Good Luck and Thank You!!
