Matt’s Creation

Kristen,

Keep the tiny things coming!  They are adorable and the more the merrier.  This past weekend I saw a tiny thing for a tiny person that I will probably get before I make the transcontinental trek.  It was ALSO adorable.

And I am happy to report that I started on a project that’s been sitting on the “To Do” list for quite a while.  But, all going as planned, it will move to the “To Done” list by the end of the week.  Woo Hoo!

AND (lots of “ands” today) there is something that DID move to the “To Done” list that I must show you.  We have never put anything on the wall in the hall downstairs.  Its an awkward size – something large needed to go there, not your normal sized framed art.  Something BIG.

So Matt came up with a plan and he finished it (and started it!) this weekend.

It started here:

FH000006-001

This is his family’s farm.  In the loft of the barn (a place I’ve never ventured due to my fear of heights) is some very old weathered wood.  And we picked up some pieces the last time we were there.

From that, he made this:

A huge chalkboard!  Its very fun and just itching to have fun scribbles and messages written on it.  The pain still needs some time to set, so the scribbles will need to wait a little longer, but isn’t it cool??

He did awesome!  Here is a close up of the frame.  (There’s also a little hook you can’t see in the picture that we’re going to hang a bucket of chalk from.)

Love it.
