c'mon get happy.

does this wall make you as happy as it does me?
it should.
while the art has taken some time and money to collect...the bunting was FREE!
i'll tell you how in a moment.
but since i know people will ask here is where all the prints are from:
clockwise starting with the stiched art which is from little bit funky.
where i am weak print from mod memento.
God love you print from daisychic.
let's have fun today from bangbangyourethread.
ignore the rain print from daisychic.
initials in the hands print from lepapierstudio.
 so now you know where to shop...
want to make your own banner?
it's so easy that i didn't do a tutorial really.
all you do is grab some paint chip cards from lowe's (and before that ONE person says something, i have had a honest to goodness lowe's employee tell me that is is OK to take as many as i would like)
punch out a bunch of shapes of your choice.
and sew them together in a line. :)
string up as desired.
would be cute with circles or hearts or any shape really.
in a baby room? nice.

happy happy happiness.
and because it's free...when you get sick of it...it won't hurt to get rid of it.

and speaking of happiness.
you want to laugh?
go read this post by the bloggess.

but be warned...there is a little cussing (yes, in the south we cuss)in there.  while that is not my style...it's still a funny post.  i laughed-cried a few times because I WOULD TOTALLY DO THAT...though doug would never tell me not to buy something. :)

my favorite line is "this chicken will cut you!". what's yours?

also...i will be posting some items "up for grabs on the facebook page at 1:30pm. :) you can get there on the right ---------->

First of all, thanks for the link back. :)

Secondly, I laughed out loud the whole time I read that blog post AND forwarded it to both my sisters who I know will also appreciate it.

My favorite line is "15 YEARS IS BIG METAL CHICKENS." Hih--larious.

Shelly said...

I laughed out loud, too! That blog post was hilarious! I needed a "happy spot" today, and your wall did the trick! Those are my FAVORITE colors!!! Thanks! :-)

Smilie girl said...

Your wall is so full of happy. Love it.
And yes, I'm not one for strong language but that link was soooo funny. Dad's a chicken farmer which just adds to the silliness. I think I will be giggling all day. Thanks!

Nancy said...

Thanks for the locations for the rad prints. Yay! You totally answered a burning question for me in regard to Lowes paint chips. Never was sure if I was going to be on America's Most Wanted for taking a handful of paint chips! :)

Love this! Makes me happy:)
I would love for you to stop by my blog and add your link to my Inspire Me Monday linky.

April@MySacredSojourn said...

I love the wall, but I think I'd love that banner even without all the prints...it's just darling! The Lowes employees have told me it's fine to take bunches of paint chips, too. That's how I made my own fan deck! :)

Adrienne said...

I love this! I too just did a project with paint chips. You can see it here: http://craftyclariangel.blogspot.com/2011/06/paint-chips-project-finishedi-think.html

Love this idea - and the post from the Bloggess. He-he.


Marisa said...

I love this! One could use card stock, too, if one is squeamish about taking so many paint chips. ;)

"This chicken will cut you!" was my FAVORITE. I may or may not say it once a day now.

Miss Bell said...

That bunting is spectacular - thank you dearly for sharing. Just to look at your pictures brought a smile to my face!

The paint chip garland you created is simply stunning!

I'm working on a post for TLC's Parentables. I will be compiling ideas of things you can make with paint chips. May I have your permission to use one of your photos and link to this post?
