During all the sickness, carpet cleaning drama, and regular daily stress, I took a much needed crafting break. I just needed some sort of mental release from it all. I had a 12×12 canvas that I had picked up from Big Lots for $5. I originally got it to try out an idea that I’ve been storing away in my head. I found an old book at the thrift store called “A Book of Hugs” that has really great black and white drawings of various hugs. I wanted to mount them onto a cute scrapbook paper and then onto the canvases to hang in the girls’ room.
Well I soon found out that the canvas wasn’t exactly 12×12 and slightly lopsided. So I went in an entirely different direction and made this sign instead.
This was really easy and worked on taking my mind off of things even if it was only for a short time. This whole project only took about half an hour.
