It's DIY day over at A Soft Place to Land. I have linked up today with this fun linky party and invite y'all to go check out what some of the great bloggers have shared.

I have been inspired by some very creative people to make a family rules wall hanging. I can't decide if I should keep this or sell it in my upcoming bazaar. Anyway, I am so happy with how this turned out. I would like to give credit to Lisa for inspiring me. This is a picture of her CUTE header from her blog. Can you see why I was inspired to check out her blog? Check out her family rules.
Both of these bloggers have really set my mind to racing with all of the cute things you could include in your own personal family rules chart. Check out We are that family for a wonderful informative tutorial on how she made hers.

For my project I just took an artists canvas (purchased at JoAnn's) and painted it black with craft paint. I then chose some cute scrapbook paper and cut them into squares to frame the edges. Then I cut the vinyl letters from my cutting machine (I use a Roland Stika cutter) and applied them.

Do you ever have a project just 'come together' for you? I feel like this project came together so completely that I might just have to keep it for myself and not sell it in the bazaar. Should I?

I don't think I would be able to part with that one. ;-) Of course I would have a hard time parting with all of your goodies. LOL I love the family rules, too.

I love it! But then I love all the stuff you do. I had been thinking of making these for my 3 kids for Christmas. Yours looks easier and more doable (at least as far as not so crafty I am concerned). Can I copy it?

Oh thank you so much for your kind words and link. :) I appreciate it more than you know! <3

And yours is amazing! I am absolutely in love with how you designed it. I want 2 now, like yours too. ;) Very well done.

That turned out really cute. I love it on the canvas. I think I may need to make one of those for a christmas present. I should do a cowboy one for Ryan and Courtney!
You can keep that one, but I think you need to make a ton of those for the bazaar. Those will fly off the shelf!

I say if you keep it you make another for the bazaar. I would want one of those for sure. That's the cutest one I have seen.

Jane said...

That is terrific! I have been admiring those family rules signs for a while too. I love your take on it.

I've been thinking about making one of these since they started circulating a few weeks ago. I love the design of yours. I would keep it, but that's just me. Thanks for sharing.
