A few years ago before the “put a bird on it” craze, I spent a tonne of time searching high and low for a simple piece of art with a few birds on a branch. Believe it or not, I couldn’t find anything that fit the imaginary piece of art that I had in my mind. So, I bought three canvases, dug out my leftover latex paints and made my own piece of art all in an evening’s time. It felt good to be creative on a whim and I got exactly what I was looking for. Best of all, it fit my budget. I’m sure most of us have seen a piece of art or two that you think you could replicate easily. Right? Well, I did some digging and found some great DIY art projects and the artists were even kind enough to write down the instructions! Why not create a masterpiece of your very own for that bare wall that’s been speaking to you for ever and a day?
Today is a huge day for us. We will find out whether or not, we’ll be moving into a new home in a months time. The real estate process has been extremely frustrating, like we had a feeling it would. To give you an idea, when we sold our home in British Columbia, once we had an accepted offer, all the conditions were removed within 5 business days and a sold sticker went up shortly after. In Florida, it’s taken about 6 weeks with all sorts of pushing from our end. But with all the waiting and wondering whether or not it will happen, I think I’ve been able to process the pros and cons of both outcomes. I know whatever happens will be just fine. But still, be done with this already! Wish us luck! Happy Monday, everyone!
