Stenciled Washer & Dryer

I originally got a stencil from Royal Design Studio to decorate my laundry room walls, but out of the blue decided to paint my old washer and dryer instead. Crazy? Maybe. But I’m in love.

Embellished Quote Wood Sign

I got to try out a new product called Scrapbook Attitude where you can take this special paper directly from your inkjet printer and glue it on wood, fabric, cardboard… pretty much anything. Pretty cool stuff and I’m lovin’ the outcome.
