My friend Charlotte at Ciburbanity is hosting a fun challenge this week, Swap It Like Its Hot!
Each of us sent some thrifted items to another blogger to be made over. For this challenge I was given these thrifted items from Karen at A Year of Serendipity:
Pretty tricky, huh?
I was originally thinking of making something with the wooden circle piece, but my 3 year old thought it was the coolest “wheel” ever and hid it somewhere. So we’ll get to that piece eventually. Instead, I used the faux leather pieces to make this sweet banner:
Love one another.
Show them love even if they’re throwing a temper tantrum or not listening. Be mindful of your actions online and in real life. Smile at strangers and be kind to those you meet. All good things I
should need to be doing. 🙂
I have this little banner near the front door and it’s a great reminder as we head out the door.
I used my Cricut to cut vinyl letters and attached them to the banner. I cut a wooden dowel to size, went over it with some teak oil, hot glued the banner to the dowel, and hung the banner with some twine.
Be sure to check out the next gal on the stop, my friend Caitlin at Desert Domicle! Here’s what I sent her:
Dun, dun, DUN!
