Be Grateful......

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope your weekend was wonderful:)  We spent some QT time as a family just hanging out.  We are in the process of building our new home so we spent some time picking out kitchen cabinets this weekend.  It's such a big decision because this will hopefully be our "forever" house and I'm trying to pick out a type and color of cabinet that is "timeless."  We are hoping to break ground within a few days.  I cannot wait to begin this adventure!!  I will keep you guys posted with pictures as it progresses....:)

So, onto the project that I want to share with you.....
I picked up this piece of scrap wood from a barn sale this past summer.  It looks like it was a part of some piece of furniture.  I loved the shape of it and thought it would make a fabulous sign.


So I was going to paint it first, however, my dear mother suggested that I leave it in it's original stain and then stencil the quote over it.  I went with her suggestion and loved the way it turned out.  I used my cricut machine to create the quote.  It felt so good to create something again....it's been awhile since I've put my hands to work in a creative way:)




I love this quote....because there is ALWAYS something to BE GRATEFUL for:)
What are you grateful for today?
Thanks for reading....and have a wonderful Monday!
