i love you. i do.


Hello! I had seen this idea of an all-white canvas on Pinterest last year and vowed to make one for myself. I chose our little family saying, "I love you. I do." It originated when Nate was only a year or two old. He couldn't say I love you (at least not audibly) so when I said, "I love you" to him, he'd repeat back, "I do." And it stuck. 

To this day, we all still say, "I love you. I do," and I say it to Nate every night when I tuck him into bed. 


Here it is hanging on the wall in my craft room. That's where it's going to live for now. I'm not quite finished with it yet. I got the idea from my friend Renee to add a picture of me, Nate and Brad, but I need to have a new one taken first. I just couldn't find one I liked. 

Plus it looks so good on the dark brown wall.


Since I knew I was posting this on a Wednesday, I decided to go ahead with a Workspace Wednesday post that my friend Jingle does so very well most Wednesdays. I always like seeing her space, so I'm getting in on it myself this week.

I had an up-close shot, too, but I have a super-secret, not-yet-revealed collection on my desk that no one can see yet. *wink*

Thanks for stopping in to see my home decor project. Gotta love that Pinterest! It only helps if you actually do the things you pin. It's like the new Bucket List for crafters.
