I’ve spent the last 3 years covering our walls with photos and art, and now I am in the process of taking it all down. Bare walls seem sad and lifeless to me. Thankfully, they’re also great blank canvases for family photos and kid art and word art.
This is my sewing and craft room, and I am sooo going to miss this space! It has beautiful sunlight, a nice wall behind my sewing table and machine, a great closet for storage. Even with my “not quite balanced” arrangement, I love looking at this wall. It makes me happy. The large photo is a print I had done from a phone pic I snapped on an evening run. I have an image of Mary, a darling photo of my girls from years ago when they didn’t mind dressing up and taking photos, and two prints by artists I super-duper admire.
I want to point out my newest one. It’s from Just Love Prints. Lindsay also sent me a second print, for one of you!
Isn’t it pretty? And I love the words. They are inspiring any time, but particularly poignant to me right now. Moving is hard. So much is unknown; it can ne overwhelming thinking about what the future holds. St. John Paul II reminds me to be confident, and hopeful with trust in our Lord’s plan.
I’m still working on that. With our dryer breaking 2x this week, and our house plans not quite 100% settled, and all the other moving things that are bound to happen, it is hard to feel confident. Pretty much, anyone who sees me and thinks I’m handling this all well, sees my strong face that I wear for the kids. Otherwise, I’m clinging to the hope that it will all work out.
I can’t wait to find a new space for this lovely and cheerful print, once we find it again after unpacking.
