Round 2 of Creating with the Stars just let out and wah, wah wah. I didn’t make it through.
I know, right?! I’m BUMMED.
But holy cow, I am thrilled to have been chosen to compete in the first place! And to make it to Round 2! Here’s a pic of my project, a Puffy Painted Anthropologie Duvet Knock-off (tutorial to come shortly):
But I did learn a big lesson.
I like fun things and bright colors and creative ideas.
But I often get nervous and stick with things that are safe. Whether it’s time, money, or nerves that scare me off, I don’t tackle a lot of ideas that I love.
I am proud because in the last two rounds I pushed myself to do something I had really wanted to do (building a table in a few hours?!) and something that was out of my comfort zone (puffy painting a duvet cover?!). It’s definitely inspired me to push the boundaries not just because I want to move on in a competition, but to do it because I want to do it. :)
If you take a look at our header image, you’ll see a tagline. The last part is really important to me: coloring outside the lines. This life is messy and complicated but I want to live it with a smile and an accepting heart. Embracing the messiness of life! With three kids (and one on the way) this house gets messy too, but when we’re having fun and enjoying the day, the laundry can wait.
I’ve made this idea into a printable coloring page, click here to print: Printable Coloring Page
or just click the image below to access and print it:
The printable is high resolution (no blurriness), and has no watermark! It will print on a 8.5 by 11 sheet of paper.
Print it out and have your kids color it, or grab some crayons and color it yourself, then hang it as art. :)
Embrace the imperfect, live a messy life.
Color outside the lines!
