DIY Room Hangings

I can't take credit for this one. My best friend made this for me for Christmas. It is probably one of the coolest gifts I have received.

This beauty here is hanging above my bed. It not only has a personal touch, but a bit of inspiration as well. I suppose I have Ernest Hemingway to thank for this quote: "The writer must write her feelings, not speak them." Ernest Hemingway and I have a love/hate relationship. I think the man was brilliant in some senses and idiotic in others. Regardless, I don't think this quote could ring more true for me. And I'm sure all my fellow writer folk out there can understand. Feelings are never an easy thing to speak, but they come perfectly when we write them out. 

But, I digress. 

My friend used a canvas as her base. She then took pieces of parchment like paper and hand wrote her favorites of my blogs. Then she used bold black letter stickers for the quote. She used the magic that is hodge podge to stick and seal it all, and there you go! The coolest of all cool gifts! 

I look at it every single day. And those day when I am the most doubtful, it reminds me that I can do this, and I should believe in my talent because it not only makes me happy but is my lifeline as well. 

How meaningful I know. But hey, who said DIY crafts couldn't have sentimental value?
