as we approach a new season, a new house, and a new addition to our family, i have had a stronger desire to have more words of truth and encouragement in our home.
i’ve been thinking a lot of ways i want our home decorated and i love the imagery of being surrounded by color, variety and words that mean something when you wake up, get ready in the morning, or simply walk down the hall multiple times a day. and being able to find cute old frames of all shapes and sizes for texture and interest.
in light of introducing a life into this world, as well as seeking our day to day routine to be more purposeful in regards to our marriage and future, i want our home to be a place where the bible is just as common place in our conversation and thoughts as a meal plan or discussion on scheduling is.
i’m hoping i can combine the elements of home decoration and encouraging words together to create some unique pieces for our home! i know naptime diaries is a great source (and great gal) to find cool graphically designed verse prints. pinterest of course has led me to a handful of free printouts (and we always love free!). but i’m also pretty interested in utilizing my own creativity and time to make pieces that are meant for just our home. painting the verse for easter sunday at church really wet my appetite, so i’ve sketched a couple ideas for some big and small paintings to hopefully grace our walls at some point.
i’m sensing i’m going to pile on myself a HUGE list of projects over the next 3 months…let’s see if i actually stay on top of them and take some pictures for you all along the way. if you’re following me, you might have noticed i’ve been a bit more active on pinterest the last few weeks as well, trying to get ideas for the nursery, laundry, pet and mudroom areas…in addition to the ideas that are brewing in my head!
