When I saw this quote somewhere online,
I knew it belonged in my laundry room.
It sounded SO familiar.
With 5 laundry producing people in our household,
doing laundry is one of these never-ending tasks.
It would maybe be better if I could just finish the job in one day,
but somehow, that never happens.
I really live up to this quote.
(I also line dry a lot of stuff, which then hangs in the laundry room,
and that sort of turns it into an extra closet where I go to get clean clothes,
often till the next time when I need space to hang stuff to dry...
But how do you put that in the quote? :) )
Initially, I created the following canvas:
I just painted the canvas,
cut the text out of Vinyl, using my Sihouette Cameo,
and put the letters on there.
I used non-permanent vinyl,
and that was no good idea.
In the damp environment of our utility room,
the letters started to come off after a while.
Since I wasn't too thrilled with the sign the way it was, anyway,
I decided to give it another try.
I peeled the letters off, and cut the text out of contact paper this time.
I put the letters on there, and then painted all over it with grey paint.
After the grey paint had dried,
I stamped some swirls on it with red and aqua paint.
And then I pealed off the contact paper letters,
to reveal the text again.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the process.
This was one of these spur of the moment crafts,
that I decided to do late at night when the kids were in bed.
I am still blogging daily this month to raise awareness for Down syndrome.
