Chocolate Jar Word Art

Yum! Chocolate!

Hi! I feel so guilty! I couldn't get this posted this morning because I was in such rush to get to my new job! By the way, I LOVE MY NEW JOB! I am so blessed!

It's been a long time coming...

Plus it didn't help that last night I suffered from serious sewing-silliness.
I was working on a simple bed-jacket for my mother and lets just say she won't be wearing it any time soon!
I decoupaged this candy jar (it previously held a candle) over the weekend.

I modeled it off of the numerous beautiful subway wall-art pieces I've been seeing all over the blogs. I really love them and I'd like to complete one myself.
For this project I mostly used forms of the Ariel font, with a few words in Times New Roman thrown in. The fonts were sized to 50. I simply printed out the sheet of paper and cut out the words. I also cut out a few filler shapes for some spacers.

Then I used Mod-podge to decoupage them on. Easy!

I printed our names, and our favorite places to go and favorite things to do.
And eat - I had to include cookies and chocolate.
I don't have a picture of it on my desk at work, but I'll get one.
My desk looks welcoming already, with just this little jar on it (The picture above shows it in my living room).

Okay, so now I have to go back to try to finish my sewing project. It was funny, first I THOUGHT I did something wrong, then found out I was just fine, but in the end I found a BIG mistake I made at the very beginning.

I am so glad this is relaxing or I would not want to make this much effort, lol.

I hope you are having better success with your projects! And I hope you are just as happy as I am today. Some days just fall into place! XOXO

I hope you get the chance to be creative today!
