I am secretly crafty. I spend my days and nights coaching and writing about how to change your life but every now and then, I press pause on all of that (and my household chores too)… for a play date with myself. I spread out on the living room floor, pull up the Netflix instant view menu, and settle in. Those weekends restore my sanity, feed my inner artist, and produce lots of marvelous treasures that I can give as gifts during the holidays.
During a recent trip to the Goodwill, I couldn’t help but notice this tired, old decoration and wonder if it might have another chance at life. It was grimy to say the least, complete with lots of hot glue from whatever no-longer-festive-faux-greenery used to be attached. It all cleaned up quite nicely and the simplicity of this thin gold and cream ribbon seemed like the perfect touch. I call these Re-purposed Peace.
