Always be sure to Laugh Often

After making Pinterest inspired crafts the past couple months I'm ready to share them with the world!  My 1st project is really a copy cat project from Saving 4 Six.  I've been begging hubs to bring me home some weathered pallets from the burn pile at work & he finally came through last week!  It took about 45 minutes to deconstruct it (I was determined to do it myself!)  I was able to get 9 boards from it.  My original plan was to piece them all back together to make a big art piece to go on the mantle.  But I couldn't wait for my creative juices to get going. 

I ended up with this:

Instead of the star from the inspiration, I cut out & covered a cardboard heart with burlap.  (I LOVE burlap!)  I don't have a Cricut so, I painted the letters very carefully instead of using a stencil. 

I was so excited about painting it that I didn't worry about finding a place to hang it, but I LOVE the placement over the curtains in the living room. 

Hope you enjoy my little project!  More to come!
